On March 22, 2011, our own Pitblado Pistols won the 2010-2011 Law League Hockey Champions at the Dominion Securities Arena of the Winnipeg Winter Club!!! In the Championship Final, the Pistols met the TM Hawks. Out-chanced and outshot in the early going, the Pistols persevered and the game remained scoreless after two periods, thanks to stellar net-minding.

With eight minutes left in the third period, our own Brock Moore-Bunney took the puck down the ice and beat two Hawk's defenders to break in on goal. Brock fired a shot and then lifted his own rebound over the sprawled TM goalie putting the Pistols ahead 1-0.

Then it became a matter of whether the Pistols could hang on. Wave after wave of Hawks attackers swept in on the Pitblado goal only to be turned aside by the stalwart defenders with the Pistols' goalie making several spectacular saves. Finally, with less than a minute to go and the Hawks' net empty in favour of a sixth attacker, it was Brock again who cleared the zone and almost literally skated the puck into the empty net. The Pitblado fans went wild! The final buzzer sounded seconds later.

Congratulations to all members of the team - you have made us proud!!
