Melbourne win by 28 points
Frank Deayton (13th game)
Melbourne further strengthened their chances of making a shock run towards the finals with a second consecutive victory. Six goals in both the third and fourth quarters had ensured they would win. St Kilda were able to boot five of their own in the final term, but their inability to kick more than two in the third cost them.
The result left the Demons two wins out of the top four, with a bye yet to come, but three wins clear of the bottom.
St Kilda 8.14.62 vs Melbourne 3.6.24 (three quarter time score)
