NEW YORK STATE PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE
Western Division
Finished: 15-18 .455 (18-18 .500*), 1st place

Divisional Semi-finals - Lost to Mohawk, 2-0

The defending champions could never find their groove. However, their mediocre 18-18 record was good enough to win the Western Division, but they lost in the playoffs to Mohawk in two straight games.

 * Utica had three forfeit wins from Oswego
