May 1889 match vs Geelong

Saturday 18 May - Corio Oval
Crowd: 1200

Geelong 1.3, 5.9, 6.12, 10.14
Melbourne 0.3, 0.3, 1.5, 1.5

Geelong win by 9 goals

Goalkicker: Smith 1

The match was played on the same day as a Victoria vs Tasmania clash and didn't attract a big crowd.

Despite being underdogs, Melbourne surprised the locals by attacking first but their forward play wasn't good enough and they wasted the opportunities. Geelong had the wind and opened up a big lead by half time.
