Geelong win by 16 points
Vic Gordon (6th game)
Bert Trahair (3rd game)
A trip to Geelong was one of the most difficult assignments in football for good teams, let alone a side that had tasted victory just three times in 12 months.
Despite the gulf in class between the two sides and the Pivotonians home ground advantage Melbourne pushed them all the way after a disappointing third quarter.
The comeback was assisted by Geelong's play dropping off in the last quarter but it was still encouraging considering that Melbourne hadn't won a match yet.
Lugton, Grey, Monk, Evans and Quinn won credit for their performance in the Fuschia backline while Lilley and Hendrie were good in the midfield.
