History[edit]

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 a playoff spot in their first season. Their first playoff opponent was the Niagara Thunderhawks who gave them the rookie treatment, vanquishing the Bengals in three straight games. The Bengals returned to the playoffs in 2007 but were eliminated in the first round once again. They have not returned to the postseason since the 2007 season.
