Host Burnaby finished up the B.C. Lacrosse bantam A1 provincial championships on a winning note.
The bantam A1 Lakers edged Juan de Fuca 9-8 on the final day of round-robin play on Saturday on Tavin Grant's overtime game-winning goal.
But a highlight for Burnaby was holding eventual silver medal-winning Coquitlam to just seven goals in a 7-4 loss on Friday.
"It definitely was (a highlight)," said Burnaby coach Lindsay Flynn, who shared the bench duties with Paolo Brunoro this season. "Earlier in the year we lost to Coquitlam 160 and 18-2, so this (result) was really good. All year we dealt with suspensions and injuries, but in the last two games of the season we started to play the way we wanted."
One of the reasons was first-year goalie Josh St. Cyr, who played well in the provincials for the Lakers, which began the season as an A2 squad.
Burnaby also posted single-digit losses to Ridge Meadows, New Westminster and eventual gold medallist Langley in pool play.
Lucas Olheiser was the Burnaby recipient of an A1 fair play award.
Langley upset favoured Coquitlam 5-4 in the championship final.
Ridge Meadows defeated New Westminster 7-5 for the bronze medal.
In the C event, Burnaby managed a 1-2 record but failed to move on into the championship round.
Burnaby C defeated Langley 7-5 in its last game at the provincials.
Coleman Edwards won the C fair play award for Burnaby.
Campbell River edged Kelowna 6-5 in the C final, while Cranbrook took the bronze with an 11-2 win over Peninsula.
Burnaby will also play host to the intermediate provincial championships, beginning this Friday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre.
A Burnaby B team is currently embroiled in a best-of-three qualifier with New Westminster. Both teams currently have one win apiece.
The winner of the series will take on Coquitlam in the opening game provincials which begin Friday at 12: 30 pm. New Westminster, Richmond, Victoria and Coquitlam will compete for the A title.
Medal games will take place on Monday.
