It has been seven years between Championships but the Venetian Lions have won the one that had eluded them. After winning the 'C' Provincials in 2004 the Venetian Lions have captured the 2011 Masters Provincial Championship, the first for the Northwest Toronto Ball Hockey League since 2001.
The Lions won the 2010 Downsview Park Fall league which earned them a spot at the 2011 Provincials. Not to be outdone they went on to win the 2011 Northwest Toronto Summer league as well.
In round robin play the Lions disposed of Vintage from London 4-1, D12 (York Central) 3-1 and tied league rival York Express 1-1. The 2-0-1 record earned them a semi-final matchup against the York Express again. This time the Lions would prevail 2-0. It would be an all Northwest final as Toronto HC would be their opponent. The final would be 1-0.
Congratulation to manager Domenic Cannatelli and the entire Venetian Lions ball hockey team on a well deserved Championship.
