After two consecutive wins the Demons went to Windy Hill hoping to stamp themselves as the big improvers of 1975, but the best they could do was a credible loss to the Bombers.

It could have been different, 14 minutes into the second quarter Ross Brewer kicked his third goal to extend Melbourne's lead to 23 points. The Bombers kicked three goals to close the margin to a goal, and by the 10 minute mark of the third term were three goals of their own in front.

Brewer was his side's lone forward, and neither Anthony Dullard or Kim Smith could add more than one goal.

Best were Brewer, Fowler and Ditterich. Ditterich was reported for striking and suspended for four matches.
