Saturday 27 August - Melbourne Ground
Hobson's Bay 0
Goalkickers: Carr 3, Thomas 1, A. Loughnan 1
Melbourne's superior weight and skill were the difference in beating the railway side. The railwaymen played a spirit game but conceded seven goals without reply.
Henry Harrison (c), James Byrne (vc)), Barker, Bell, Carr, Colles, Duff, Finlay, Freeman, C. Forrester, J. Forrester, Goldsmith, Hepburn, Hope, McLennan, Loughnan, Ryan, Riggall, Towle, Treacy. Emergency - Seartll, E. Harrison, Hodgkinson, Thomas
The Argus suggests it was the last game of the season but says they will play Albert Park the next week. Some sources suggest Thomas scored 2 and A. Loughnan didn't score at all.
