June 1878 Match vs Hotham

Saturday 1 June - MCG
Crowd - 2000

Melbourne 0
Hotham 3 (half time 0-0)

Hotham win by 3 goals

On heavy turf unfavourable to quality football, Melbourne had numerous chances early kicking into the wind but couldn't break through Hotham's strong defence. Baker went closest as his hit the post.

After half time the visitors were poor, beaten comfortably and only having another good opportunity to score by the time they were three goals down.

Simson, Forrester and Waldron were best.

Some sources suggest Melbourne scored a goal but do not name the goalscorer.
