Saturday 13 June - Melbourne Ground
Hawthorn 0.0 (half time 3-0)
Melbourne played at a handicap of 25 to 20, but were further disadvantage when only 19 turned up.
The result was never in doubt, with Cumming and Bell scoring early. Cumming scored again not long after, and there was no further scoring for the remainder of the game.
