"Langton Midgets take intercounty title at Preston. The Langton
Midgets went to Preston and came out ahead 12 to 9 for their second
straight win in the Midget B final series. Don Boyd threw a grand
game for the winners. He struck out 12 and walked 3. Langton
collected 12 hits, Boughner and DeVos leading the way with 3 singles
apiece. Ellwood and Erdelac each drove out a couple, while Saunders
tripled for his only hit."
the 1 Sep 1948 Simcoe Reformer:
"Fort Erie ousts Langton Midgets. Gordon Boyd's Langton Midgets
were eliminated from the OBA playdowns at Fort Erie when they suffered a
14-0 defeat at the hands of the St. Michael's of that town in the second
game of the first round."
