Note: The above list is incomplete and still being researched. For instance, the 10/25/1942 win over the Flushing Maroons was reported in the North Shore Evening Journal, the 11/8/1942 tie with the Anthonians reported in the Nassau Daily Review-Star. 1917 is obviously incomplete. The Base periodicals are not extant, the few that remain are for just a few months in 1917 and 1918. The 1935 C.C.C. team must have played more games.
