The Cup trustees then accepted a challenge from the Toronto Wellingtons of the Ontario Hockey Association and scheduled a two-game series. The first match was played under Ontario rules, curiously with the Wellingtons wearing Winnipeg uniforms. Despite leading the game, 2-1, at the half, the Winnipeg Victorias proved to be much too strong, storming back for a 5-3 victory. The second game was played under Manitoba rules with Toronto back in their regular uniforms. For the second consecutive game Winnipeg proved to be much too physical for the Ontarians, winning again by a 5-3 score.
