1947-48 Twin Cities Celtics / Glens Falls Commorodes (NYSL)

1947-48 TWIN CITIES CELTICS (ALBANY / TROY)
1947-48 GLENS FALLS COMMODORES
NEW YORK STATE PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE
Western Division

Finished: 13-14 .481 (22-14 .611*), 3rd place

The Twin Cities Cetlics, who called both Albany and Troy home, won their first four games of the season but hit a little snag and dropped four of their next five. They struggled financially and eventually the franchise would be sold and the new ownership moved their Vermont Vulcans club to become the Glens Falls Commodores. They assumed the 13-7 record left by the Celtics. The Commodores, with a whole new cast of players, performed well but couldn't catch Saratoga for a playoff birth.

 * Twin Cities had five forfeit wins from Oswego. Glens Falls had forfeit wins from Mohawk, Utica and Schenectady.
