In their first trip to the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions, the MV United U18 girls played in the U19 Division by virtue of their position in the final South Coast standings. They played hard, adjusting to new game plans and positions, and tied both Dracut and Auburn before falling to eventual tournament champion Tyngsboro.

The team was one goal away from advancing to the semifinals, a tremendous accomplishment for a team of 15-, 16-, and 17-year-old girls playing in an under-19 division.
