They finished with 58 goals for and 10 goals against. Overall, the team has a 22-2 record in four tournament appearances.

The 212 U15 boys had another tremendous weekend, finishing with a 4-1 record. They put up 42 goals and had only 11 goals against during their run to a championship that fell short in a heartbreaking, one-goal loss to Factory U15 of San Diego, 3-2.

The 212 U13 boys had a strong showing, with four wins, one loss and one tie. They finished in third place after a tough loss to Factory U13 in the playoffs. Overall, the team finished with 35 goals for and 15 goals against.

The 212 girls finished in second place, competing against mostly sophomores and juniors. It was a solid showing for a young group of kids faced with stiff competition.

212 Lacrosse teams scored 135 goals and had 36 goals against while playing in 21 games over two days.

212 completed a six-month tournament series with a girls’ and boys’ cumulative record of 90 wins and 21 losses, including seven tournament appearances and six titles.

"212 continues to play for two former teammates of mine at North Carolina, Neill Redfern (battling cancer) and Eric Seremet (recently widowed)," 212 Lacrosse founder and director Mike Acee said after the event. "The message for the kids to play for someone other than themselves is unifying and they all continue to play very hard for Eric and Neill. I’m extremely proud of all the 212 kids. As always, a big thank you to the entire 212 Lacrosse community. The support the parents show myself and our staff continues to be tremendous. I’d also like to thank all of our coaches: Brian Bilzi (D1- Manhattan College), Court Durling (D1- Virginia), Elizabeth Jahp (D1-Cal) and Jeannette Villapiano (D1-UMass). They did a wonderful job helping guide our four teams to a cumulative 15 win, five loss, one tie record. Thank you to Bitter Lacrosse for putting on a great event and providing us with such a beautiful venue to compete in another fun, successful lacrosse weekend."
