August 1868 match vs Carlton

August 15 - Melbourne Ground

Melbourne 0
Carlton 0

Match drawn

No goals were scored but spectators were treated to a fast, rough contest which occasionally tipped over into brutality. Matters weren't helped by Melbourne adopting Carlton's tactic of holding players off the ball.

When a Carlton player was injured late in the day the match was brought to an early end.

Harrison and Freeman acted as joint captains for Melbourne.
