After two weeks defending their winning streak against the other two unbeaten teams in the league the Demons added a sixth straight victory at the Western Oval, but not without some nervous moments.

In a tight game the two sides stayed closed together most of the day, but with the aid of the wind in the last quarter Melbourne were expected to run away with victory. The wind swung against them late in the match but they had already done enough to insulate themselves against a Footscray comeback.

Mueller, Wartman and Buckley were best.

Melbourne 17.18 d. Footscray 9.8
Goals - Bennett 4, Munday 3, Stewart 2, Coolahan 1, Reilly 1, Ball 1, Anderson 1, Waters 1, McDonagh 1, Backway 1, Emselle 1
