Dave Walsh

This was the first VFL game for 14 of North Melbourne's 18 players, many though had experience in the VFA. This experience is evidenced by the fact that the average age of the orth Melbourne players was nearly 27 years old, an average 2 years older than the younger Geelong team.
North Melbourne's captain Wels Eicke had come over from StKilda where he had played over 190 games in a career spaning back to 1909.

North Melbourne signalised its appearance In League football by defeating Geelong on Corio Oval on Saturday, and in view of the fact that Geelong has always been a most difficult side to overwhelm on its own ground, the North Melbourne players and supporters are overjoyed at the success . That it was achieved in the last few minutes of the match made it the more exciting, but on the merits of the play North Melbourne was the far superior team to Geelong. It has to be borne in mind, however that Geelong during the second half of the game played 17 men, and Johns, suffering from a ricked ankle, could do but very little work, but Johnson, the North rover, was also incapacitated after the first term. (Argus 4-May-1925 p9)

The Argus reported the final minutes of the game:

Clapson took the ball down the centre, and passed to Johnson, who from a few feet out hit the post with a snap shot again equalising the scores at 7.9 all. Gradually North gained an advantage, and were 2 points ahead when Feming had a shot but only got a point. Then Proflitt passed to Hagger. The kick was true but Sharland marked it in goal, and raised the two flags. With four points in the leadl Geelong strengthened their defence. There was barely two minutes to go, and Geelong attacked again. Stevenson went for a mark but did not actually hold It. He could not get rid of it and was penalised for holding the ball. The decision was the turning point, for play went into Geelong territory. Hagger in trying to save his goal kicked across and out and with the resultant free kick, Clapson booted the winning goal. Lewis from a nice mark from Clapson made the final scoring shot for a goa1, and North Melbourne had a fine win by 8 points. (Argus 4-May-1925 p9)
