Match Statistics

St. Kilda win by 43 points

Goalkickers: Ross Dillon 2, Greg Parke 2, Stan Alves 1, Rod Payne 1, John Townsend 1


St. Kilda had the best defence in the league so it was no surprise that they managed to restrict the Demons to a low score and win comfortably.

In windy conditions both sides struggled in the first quarter, but the second term saw the Saints master the conditions better en route to 6.4 while Melbourne managed just a point. John Beckwith moved his players around to try and stir things up. Greg Parke went to full-forward to swap with Ross Dillon

Defender Paul Rowlands had been dropped after his poor performance against Richmond the week before, but he might have been worth a try against dominant Saint Allan Davis who booted 5.8 for the day.

Parke and Dillon, Melbourne's best throughout the season to date, kicked four goals between them but were well held. Stan Alves was the Demons best on ground. Hardeman (illness) was replaced by Feldmann at half time.
