Canandaigua's 8-8 pre-tournament record gave them the number six seed in the Class B tournament but the Braves are used to winning and so after beating third seeded Spencerport (10-8) they beat second seeded Churchville-Chili (10-5) for a shot at the championship. An exciting game with Irondequoit (9-11) ended the season for the Braves who finished second. There 3-1 record in Monroe County-D2 placed them second behind Irondequoit.
Canandaigua continued to be a "team oriented" team and demonstrated by the twenty-one players who contributed to their offensive book in 2012. Senior midfielder Matt Scharr led the team in goals, assists and points with 29g-23a (52 pts) but four others produced more than twenty points. Senior attackmen Taylor Spike (17g-18a) was paced by junior attackman Dan LaCrosse (24g-11a) and sophomores Eric Munn (13g-8a) and Brian Feldman (18g-3a).
