Ballarat Imps. 26 points, Ballarat 14, South Ballarat 8.
Local Ballarat club matches totalling 24 games, were played on the Eastern Oval 16 times, and Saxon Paddock 8.
One team would have had a bye each week which would have enabled them to play other matches.
The other games were against the metropolitan clubs, Ballarat 10 games, including a game against Carlton, Ballarat Imps 5. South Ballarat 5, including a game against Norwood.

The % column is a proportional method the V.F.A. had of determining the team position.
Not all teams played the same number of games against the same teams.
South Melbourne played 22 games, and Williamstown and Footscray had played 18 matches.
The proportional system was designed to equalise the points as if all clubs had played the same number of matches.
Some games were classed as first class games, and others not.
