Although not the same franchise, the Hamilton Bengals name does have some previous history. From 1976 until 1983, the original Hamilton Bengals existed in the OLA Junior A Lacrosse League. They moved in 1983 and are now currently known as the Burlington Chiefs.
The Bengals had an excellent first season in the OLA. With a winning record, they finished in seventh place in the regular season to clinch their first ever playoff spot in their very first season. Their first ever playoff opponent was the Niagara Thunderhawks who gave them the rookie treatment, vanquishing the Bengals in three straight games.
