On May 30, Toronto Beaches travelled to St. Catharines, and fell to the Athletics in a 12-4 loss.
On June 1, the team again faced Barrie, this time on the road. Once again Toronto Beaches came out on top, with a solid 11-5 win. Robertson and Carter Cummings scored three goals each, while Hulbert picked up two, and Spanger, Sternberg and Davidson each scored one.
