A slow start by the lifeless visitors didn't initially hurt them, as strong defence by Tomkins and Odgers kept Geelong to a single goal at quarter time, but when the Pivotonians found their rhythm in the second half they built up a match winning half time lead.

It didn't get much better for Melbourne in the second half, with Hendrie almost completely shut out of the game after suffering a leg injury. Rain soon fell and Geelong capitalised on it better. The lead at the last change was 31 points, and a slight breeze helped the locals add two more goals to their lead.

Odgers was Melbourne's best in his first game of the year, followed by Kennedy and McKenzie.
