Every other team in the league, none of which has played more than four games, while an equal number have just played three, have tasted the sting of defeat this season.

Springfield with a total of six points is leading the league, with Bethlehem, Providence and Fall River next in order with five points each. While Springfield is leading the circuit the percentage of the Bethlehem club is higher than that of the league leader. Springfield, Providence, and Fall River have each played four games and incidentally each tasted defeat. Bethlehem played three games, won two and played a draw in the third.
