Three weeks after the Eagles knocked Melbourne out of the finals series, the sides met again in America and the Demons maintained their record of never losing a match outside Australia.
On a small ground with artificial turf the match was played 15-a-side with no pockets. Cuthbertson kicked five goals in the second quarter.
Best were Keogh, Stynes and Spalding.
