On June 11, 1930 a picked team from the St. Catharines and Niagara districts played against touring Scottish team Kilmarnock in St. Catharines.

The Scottish tourists, Scottish cup-winners in the 1928-29 season, scored the first goal of the game when Wales scored on a pass from Clark.

Maxwell scored on a header to make it 2-0. He added a third goal from a sizzler.

Smith scored the goal for the locals, after receiving a pass from the left of the field, to make the score 3-1 at half-time.

The exhibition of Bale in the local’s goal was said to be one of the outstanding features of the match.
