1969 Golden Fleece Night Series Semi Final
Melbourne vs Footscray
Friday 19 September
Venue: Lake Oval
Attendance: 12,516


Melbourne win by 5 points

Goalkickers: Parke 2, Townsend 2, Dillon 2, Bourke 1

Shooting for their fourth night premiership the Bulldogs were upset by Melbourne, who despite finishing last on the league ladder showed strong form for a second straight week in the night series.

The Demons made their first night final in a tight defensive battle, once again aided by their opposition kicking abysmally for goal.

In light rain the Melbourne rucks were again eclipsed but they had Frank Davis playing a brilliant game in the back pocket, and when they weren't missing shots on goal the Footscray forwards usually found him impassable.

Best were Davis, Wells and Rollinson.
