March 20th, 2016 - After tying Needham Thunder (2015 BU14 MTOC Champions) 1-1 in their first game of the tournament, the CHSC BU15's rebounded to beat FC USA Coastal 4-0. This earned CHSC a spot in the semi-finals where they beat Seacoast United 7-1. The final pitted CHSC vs Needham in what turned out to be an epic championship game. CHSC got on the board midway through the first half when Matt Salzman poked home a rebound of a Jacques Baldwin shot that the Needham keeper couldn't control. CHSC GK Zach MacDonald made a couple of crucial saves down the stretch but otherwise, the stingy CHSC back four of Conor Ross, Demitri Papoulis, Luc Jamous and Ben Sander were able to stifle the talented Needham attackers.  A combination of solid defending and midfield possession helped CHSC close out the game and give the club its first trophy of 2016.
