May 1878 match vs Hawthorn

Saturday 11 May - MCG

Melbourne 2
Hawthorn 3 (half time 1-1)

Goalkickers: Charles Baker 1, Cooper 1

Melbourne played with 20 to Hawthorn's 25, but were reduced to 19 after 15 minutes when P. Goldsmith dislocated his shoulder and was forced out of the game.

They had the best of the play early, but their teamwork was ragged due to having so many new players in the side, and Hawthorn used their numerical advantage to take control in the second half.

Selected side
Anthony, Baker, Batterbury, Booth, E. Cook, JV Cooke, Cooper, Crooke, Downes, Goldsmith, Henderson, Houston, Longden, Nicholas, Sandilands, Sherrard, Sillett, Simson, Waldron, Wills. Emergencies - Birtwistle, F. Page.

Australasian incorrectly lists the opposition as Hotham.
