Feb 1928 Simcoe Reformer:
"There was only one road
out of Simcoe Monday night, and that led to Cayuga. By bus and motor
car, hundreds of local fans made the trip to watch the Haldimand County
seat lads carry out their threat to 'Take home the bacon.' Strangely
enough Mottashed's proteges were also in the mood for bacon that night and
served themselves with so generous a helping that there was little or
nothing left to satisfy the cravings of Cayuga, save defeat... which was
definitely not to their liking."
win forced a Home-and-Home playoff and on Feb. 9, 1928 we read:
"Simcoe's Intermediate Team are champions of Group 9 by virtue of
their double defeat of the Cayuga Red Streaks, the first game by 3-0 and
the second 2-0." In the same issue we find "Port Colborne
wins round: won second game 9-2 and round 15-3."
