Terry Ravens failed to manage a victory at the inaugural B.C. high school ball hockey championships but Surrey's Fleetwood Park Dragons posted the one that truly mattered.
The Dragons scored with 40 seconds left to post a 3-2 triumph over the Mission Roadrunners in the provincial final May 15 at Port Moody Rec Complex.
Mission would later bounced Surrey's Johnston Heights Eagles 4-2, with both teams being awarded the bronze medal in the six-team draw.
That was just part of the tremendous spirit tournament facilitator Rob Moxness was looking to achieve in what he hopes is the first of many more prep ball hockey provincials to come.
"It was a huge success for a first-time event," Moxness said. "There was a lot of positive feedback about the tournament's organization, prizes and overall excitement."
The Ravens were considered the host team but dropped three tough games -- 5-3 to Johnston Heights, 6-0 to Victoria's Stelly's Stingers and 6-3 to the eventual-champion Dragons.
Fleetwood Park's Eric Rossi nabbed tourney MVP honours and also won Top Scorer, while his teammate Jordan Marling collected the Best Goalie award.
Stelly's Alex Derksen was named Best Forward, with Mission's Sam Buttar earning Best Defenceman honours.
