Goalkicker: Edwin Towle
Melbourne kicked with a slight breeze, but for the first 30 minutes the ball was trapped in the middle of the ground. Then Melbourne rushed the goals and took advantage of a defensive lapse by their opponents for Towle to open the scoring.
The visitors were declared winners despite not achieving the usual two goals in a game required.
Henry Harrison captained Melbourne. Best were Harrison, Bell and Byrne.
