The following day, the club held the final of the 8- to 12-goal Chairman's Cup. The Sunday afternoon match offered a variety of events for spectators. Some guests lined the field to tailgate while others enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the pavilion for the annual Mass General Hospital's Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center benefit.
