Melbourne finished its worst start to the season since 1984, ending the first month of games under new coach Neil Balme without a win. They got off to a good start, with debutante Paul Hopgood goalling with his first kick after 45 seconds, then Andrew Obst adding another soon after. By quarter time they'd conceded six goals, four to Wayne Carey, who outmatched David Schwarz, and trailed by 21 points. The Demons challenged again early in the second term, before four late goals set up a 41 point lead for North.

Three goals to Garry Lyon in the third term kept the margin respectable, before the Demons narrowly won the last quarter when the game was long lost. Peter Rohde held Carey late, keeping him to just seven goals, and Schwarz went into the ruck when Jim Stynes departed with broken ribs during the third quarter after a goalsquare collision with David Neitz,

Best were Lyon, Lovell and Neitz. The injury to Jim Stynes was expected to end his consecutive game streak at 137. Despite early reports that he'd be out six weeks, Stynes played the following game.

Neale Balme suggested that some of his players "may be over-rated", and said, "Either they play better or I'm going to have some problems".
