Fitzroy win by 17 points
The Maroons were playing to keep in touch with the top four with a month of the season to go, but they had to come from behind against to the lowly Reds.
After the two sides were level at quarter time, Melbourne were in front at the next two breaks and until the last few minutes the game was still anybody's to win - until a bad mistake let them in and allowed Fitzroy to take over.
Melbourne 11.14 d. Fitzroy 10.14
