After 17 consecutive defeats against North Melbourne dating back to 2007, Melbourne finally ended the second longest losing streak in club history. They had to do it the hard way, coming back from four to nil down at the start of the game.
North challenged in the third quarter, before the Demons kicked away in the last.
Best were Gawn, Hogan and Jones. Sam Frost was fined $2000 for rough conduct.
