FC Essendon 4-7 Pascoe Vale Lions (2-3)
The Lions looked to continue their dream run in the VLP this season against a Wanderers side, merely trying to keep afloat. Essendon went down 2 goals to 3 in the first term, but didn’t keep up the pace in the second, going down by 3 goals.

FC Prahran 1-1 Vic Vipers FC (0-0)
A big clash for the Warriors against the Vipers got off the mark with a rare 0-0 first half that was fairly woeful from both sides. Although both sides worked hard, it was to the benefit of neither as the game ran out a draw.

Albert Park FC 1-4 FC Balwyn (1-1)
Following the Vipers draw, the Bullets had a chance to make up some ground on that second spot. Albert Park were certainly no pushovers to half-time, with the score locked at 1-1. But Balwyn then showed their quality by putting away three unanswered goals.

Hume FC 8-6 Metropolitan FC (6-3)
After a number of impressive weeks for Hume, the aim was to keep their form going by triumphing over Metropolitan. Hume outscored the Sky Blues 6-3 to half-time and then steered to a 2 goal victory, which puts Hume just one point behind the Sky Blues.

FC Collingwood 3-6 Ashburton FC (1-2)
A good chance to get some points for the Green Machine was a match the Woods needed to really come out well and get a sniff early. Ashburton scored first, and Collingwood put some pressure on and managed to draw equal for a short time only for Ashburton to get one back and lead 2-1 at the change of ends. The Woods were by no means out of it until under 5 minutes to go when the Green Machine finally broke the young Collingwood side and put them away neatly.
