The Tondas joined the Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League in 1973. Their performance was not spectacular and they did not draw well. Late in the year, the team was moved to Glencoe, Ontario which was a lot closer to the rest of the teams. They were renamed the Buffalo-Glencoe Tondas.
With only fifteen wins in sixty-two games during the 1973-74 season, the Tondas were not a successful franchise and did not return in 1974-75.
