Summary Edit

Twenty five minutes into this match, West Melbourne Sicilia were leading 1-0 when Sicilia's D'Agostino refused to leave the field after being sent off for allegedly kicking an opponent. The match was abandoned, and because Sicilia were adjudged to be the cause of the abandonment - Sicilia's captain had backed D'Agostino in his refusal to leave the field - the points were awarded to South Melbourne.[2]
