From the 20 Feb 1912 Simcoe
"Before the largest crowd of hockey enthusiasts, roofers and flag
wavers that has ever witnessed a town league match before ... The Hubs
jumped into first place in the final game at the expense of
"Billy" Skirrow's high school septette in a fast and exciting
showing by a score of 11 goals to 5 ... Count 5 all and the crowd put on a
guessing basis as to who would again take the lead. From the start of the
puck, both teams fought hard to secure the rubber, which was chased from
one end of the rink to the other. The Hubs finally got down to a
breakaway, and with a right shot to left, back again, and then to centre,
a shot was made which sounded like number 6 for the Hubs. "Some
hockey," remarked Manager Culver and his smile was of a sivery nature
-- it would come off."
