Geelong win by 18 points
For the second week in a row Melbourne left themselves with a difficult task at three quarter time before playing a much improved last quarter to make the result more respectable.
Melbourne had stayed close to their more fancied rivals in the first quarter, but when the Pivotonians kicked away in the second they wouldn't be caught again.
During the second quarter Geelong's Hardiman took a mark which the Football Record described as "one of the most spectacular I have ever seen", but he was denied it by the umpire paying a free kick against Geelong.
Fischer, Jones and Usher were best.
