25 September - Richmond Paddock
14th Regiment 0
In a rough game several Melbourne players had their shirts torn from their back, including Freeman who suffered that fate three or four times, and one was punched in the face. It had been said that the soldiers had been practicing for the game for a number of months, but they were more noted for their violence than the football.
Nevertheless at the end of the match Melbourne captain Henry Harrison led three cheers for his opponents and joked that they had mistaken the hosts for "their enemy".
Carlton's visiting Bill Gorman - who had not travelled with his regular side to a match in Geelong - kicked the first goal after half an hour, added the second a further hour later and Carr wrapped the match up with a third to end Melbourne's season on a high.

Some sources claim the game was played on the MCG proper and that it was the first time a price had been charge for admittance to the ground, and some that it was played on the Melbourne Ground. The papers of the day report that it was played on Richmond Paddock.
