Melbourne win by 16 points
Melbourne's third win in a row put them right in the mix for the top four approaching the middle point of the season. They had been expected to beat Footscray, and had to come from behind at quarter time but for a side who hadn't played finals since 1928 any win was a step closer to breaking the drought.
Ron Baggott was reported once each for threatening behaviour and retaliating. He received a four match ban on the second charge.
Best was Maurie Gibb.
Melbourne 13.12 d. Footscray 12.9
Football Record suggests Eric Glass was also reported but cleared.
