Saturday 5 July - Melbourne Ground
St Kilda 2
St Kilda win
Goalkicker: William Hammersley
St Kilda were boosted by players from South Yarra and Essendon, but Melbourne were having their worst season yet so it was no surprise when they were dominated despite trying hard. The ball was usually at their end and eventually the visitors scored the two goals necessary for victory.
Some sources say the match was played on 2 August
