The Fuschias led at the first change, but after missing good opportunities to increase their lead in the second quarter they went into half-time behind.
More failures during the third quarter settled Melbourne's chances, as they kicked six straight behinds to 1.1. In the last quarter the home side finally kicked straight while Essendon were wayward, but they didn't have enough chances to make a difference.
