Melbourne had been stunned in their first match against Port, but late in the season they had come into red hot form and were playing for a fifth win in a row for the first time in years.
Despite kicking into a wind the Reds took a two goal lead into the first quarter, and added one more in each of the next three quarters to win comfortably.
Some sources have Port Melbourne on 1.6 at full time, and some 1.9
