Teams played a handful of games for several hours and then a championship was held.

The Midcoast teams that participated were Oceanside and Camden Hills.

Camden Hills, coached by Linda Sylvester, included Fiona Zizza, Claire Lemer, Katherine Bowen, Annika Charland, Lyra Kalajian, Allson Mendoz, Courtney King, Mackenzie Power, Sydney White, Chloe Simmons, Anikka Reinwand, Ella Tassoni, Lulu Lyman, Eileen Maeda, Katie Southworth and Thurston Illingworth.

Oceanside, coached by Katie Nichols, included Mikaela Hickey, Mattie Hooper, Erin Dugan, Laura Boutin, Jade Philip, Jazzmin Johnson, Julia Kurr, Amanda Frost, Audrey Young and Marina Lamkins.

Other teams that played included Erskine Academy of South China, Lawrence of Fairfield, Gardiner, Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield, Lincoln Academy of Newcastle, Morse of Bath, Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft and Mount Ararat "A" and "B" of Topsham.

In the championship, MCI edged Lawrence 2-1. The final was tied and a shootout was held instead of typical penalty strokes.

With a penalty stroke, the goalie is stationary as the stroker has the opportunity to shoot on the cage from a short designated distance. In a shootout, the field player starts from a distance away and approaches the cage and the goalie has the opportunity to play one-on-one until a goal is scored, the player fouls or the ball is cleared from the designated area.

The final results from the event were:

MCI, 5 games played, 4-0-1 record, 17 goals scored, 10 goals scored against, 13 points, +7 goal differential; Lawrence, 5 games, 4-1-0, 19 goals for, 11 goals against, 12 points, +8 goal differential; Mount Ararat "A," 4 games, 2-1-1, 12 goals for, 8 goals against, 7 points, +4 goal differential; Gardiner, 4 games, 2-2-0, 16 goals for, 12 goals against, 6 points, +4 goal differential; Erskine Academy, 4 games, 2-2-0, 2 goals for, 9 goals against, 6 points, -7 goal differential; Foxcroft Academy, 4 games, 1-2-1, 12 goals for, 9 goals against, 4 points, 3 goal differential; Oceanside, 3 games, 1-1-1, 8 goals for, 10 goals against, 4 points, -2 goal differential; Camden Hills, 4 games, 1-3-0, 11 goals for, 10 goals against, 3 points, 1 goal differential; Lincoln Academy, 4 games, 1-3-0, 5 goals for, 9 goals against, 3 points, -4 goal differential; Mount Ararat "B," 3 games, 1-2-0, 3 goals for, 7 goals against, 3 points, -4 goal differential; and Morse, 4 games, 1-3-0, 6 goals for, 16 goals against, 3 points, -10 goal differential.
