From the 21 Aug 1933 Simcoe Reformer:
"British Knit girls took an interesting softball game from a Brantford team here on Monday night to a score of 20 to 11 --  Behind the good pitching of Ruth Walsh, the girls showed considerable hitting strength."

From the 7 Sep 1933 Simcoe Reformer:
"British Knit girls did well in Tourney -- The British Knit Girls participated in the Labour Day Softball Tourney held at Dundas and made a good showing, going through to the semi-finals against strong opposition and being eliminated by a team which were runners-up to the Ontario Championships ... In the initial game, the Brit girls defeated Caledonia by a close score of 11 to 10 ... The second game was a walkaway for the Simcoe representatives which downed Burlington 20 tp 10 ... In the semi-final game, the Dundas team took the local nine by a 19-6 score."
