The match was an avenging one to make up for last year's one point loss to Melbourne at the same time last year, which started a downhill spiral. At one stage, the margin was an incredible 74 points, but the Dees (Melbourne Demons) came back with six goals in the final quarter. While a great win, it wasn't really an exciting game to watch.
