Melbourne win by 58 points
Edwin Pemberton (4th game)
Footscray had never managed better against Melbourne than the draw they achieved in 1929 and their bad run continued with another loss, this time by nearly ten goals to the unbeaten Redlegs.
While the scoring remained relatively even until half time and Footscray weren't disgraced they never looked like winning. The brilliant Redlegs had far too much for them, and when the game was over in the second half the visiting players relaxed and let Melbourne run away with the match.
The standard of play had been poor in the first half but deteriorated even further in the second, with the game over after Melbourne added 21 points without reply in the first half minutes of the third term. Near darkness during the last quarter made it even harder for the players to put on a spectacle.
Pemberton, Taylor and Usher were Melbourne's best.
