Two entrants participated in the U12 Girls Delta Group: Lisa Curto's Strikers (A Bracket) and Chris Guccione's Crazy Spoonheads (C Bracket).

The Spoonheads went 2-0-1, including a 2-2 draw and a tie for 1st place with the Needham Bolts, but took the bracket in penalty kicks. The Strikers went 3-0, winning their bracket, but lost their semi-final 2-0 to the wildcard Needham Bolts.

With the Crazy Spoonheads winning their their semi-final against the Needham Strikers, they earned another match against the Bolts in the finals. After regulation and overtime they would be locked in a 0-0 tie, but this time the Spoonheads would fall in penalty kicks, and finish in second place.
