Juventus is Belgian Men´s League and Cup champion — 28.05.2012
Juventus won its second consecutive title, the 4th in the history of the club. They dominated the season with 15 wins and just one draw in 16 league games and are unbeaten in domestic games since December 2010.
The two freshly promoted teams GSFloorballteam Strijtem and FBC Stimulo Denderleeuw surprised many Belgian floorball fans by both qualifying for the championship play-offs as 3rd and 4th team. In the semifinals Stimulo faced regular league winner Juventus. The defending champion won 7-1. In the other semifinal Tornado won 7-6 against Strijtem, but they were nearly surprised in the last period after being ahead 7-1 with 40 minutes played.
In the final Juventus seemed to head for an easy win after being in the lead 3-0 after 5 minutes of play. The spectators did however not see any goals in the next 45 minutes. With 8 minutes left Tornado managed to score 3-1 and 20 seconds from the end they made Juventus shiver by putting the 3-2 in the net. The black and whites were however cool enough to control the game until the end. GSFloorballteam Strijtem took the 3rd place by beating Stimulo 8-6 in the bronze game.
Thomas Ghilain (Juventus) was the best scorer in the regular league with an impressive average of over 5 points per game (71 points in 14 games). Jonathan Chiau (Juventus) was the most productive player in the play-offs with 4 goals and 4 assists.
For the first time since the introduction of the play-off system Waterloo Lions did not manage to qualify. The other “Scandinavian” team, Tigers Kraainem FC, ended up last and is relegated to the 2nd division.
FBC Loups du Lux won the title in the 2nd division and will play for the first time in D1 next season. Former national team player Olivier Nicolas (FBC Loups du Lux) was the best scorer in D2 with 36 points in 14 games.
GSFloorballteam Strijtem women´s champion
Just like last season GSFloorballteam Strijtem won the title in the women league and their captain, Katrijn Merki, was the best scoring lady. Les Renardes La Hulpe (same number of points as Strijtem) and Juventus complete the podium.
Waterloo dominates Junior Leagues
In the junior leagues Waterloo Lions won the U12 championship for the second time. They previously won in 2009-2010. They also won the U18 championship for the first time ever and were second in the U15 after winning the previous three editions. FBC The Mighty Devils Aalst Black took the U15 title convincingly by winning all their games.
Luca Boutmans (FBC The Mighty Devils Aalst) became top scorer in the U15. Arvid Paulsson (Waterloo Lions) & Lukas Helmons (Fireballs Tielt) shared the price in the U12. Maverick Verhoeven (FT Atom Eagles) had most point in the U18 championship
Belgium close to 1000 licensed players
The number of registered players in Belgium increased with nearly 20% compared to last season. The number of players went from 144 in 2006 to 979 in 2012 which represents an increase of 580% in just 6 years.
Three clubs are above 100 players this season. Fireballs Tielt and Les Renards de La Hulpe who already reached that number last year are joined by Juventus. Fireballs Tielt remains the biggest club with 134 players.
