Captain-coach Alistair Taylor hit the runs that secured Launceston back-to-back T20 titles then paid a heartfelt tribute to his teammates.
"They're an awesome bunch of blokes and really good mates to have in a tough situation," he said.
"It's just a pleasure to play with your best mates."
For the second year running, Launceston met Riverside in the Cricket North short-form showpiece and it was deja vu as the Lions again proved too strong.
Despite losing to the Blues earlier in the day, Taylor's men restricted them to 7-91 (Pete New top scoring with 23) as the evening sun set on a frenetic weekend of fixtures at the NTCA Ground.
In reply, the Lions went in for the kill, Taylor leading the way with 42 not out as the target was reached with six wickets and four overs to spare.
Ben Humphrey also hit 23 but provided one of the few highlights for Riverside as 13-year-old Aidan O'Connor claimed his wicket at the death.

Ramesh Sundra and Pat Mackrell also took fine catches but there was no stopping Taylor.
"It's becoming a bit of a tradition to keep playing Riverside in T20 finals so we're looking forward to doing it again next year.
"It's always a good feeling to win silverware for your club, whatever the format. To go back-to-back is a real credit to the group.
"It was a big weekend, hot weather for a lot of it, but we prepared really well and did the job well. Our spinners did a really good job."
Riverside captain Tom Garwood was gracious in defeat after his team's fifth successive final.
"It was a good effort from our boys but we fell short," he said. "Launnie batted well, particularly AT."
Cricket North administrator David Fry said the weekend format had been a huge success.
Earlier in the day, Riverside had claimed provisional grand final favouritism by winning the battle of the tournament's big two.
Chasing the Lions' 5-140, the Blues completed the task with six wickets and four balls to spare.
Captain Tom Garwood provided the backbone at the top of the order with a half-century coming off 40 deliveries and including two sixes.
At 2-18, Riverside was looking in trouble before valuable lower-order contributions from Trent Keep (29) and an unbeaten fifth-wicket partnership between Cooper Anthes (26) and Patrick Mackrell (21).
Tom Gray (2-18) was the pick of the Launceston bowlers.
Garwood (2-28) and Sam Artis (2-32) had taken the honours in the field for Riverside as Ben Humphrey (40 off 32), Rhys French (39 off 26) and James Curran (25 off 19) led the way at the crease.
Mowbray chased down South Launceston with a couple of balls remaining.
Batting figurehead Sean Harris claimed more than half his side's runs.
His unbeaten 66 off 45 with three maximums took the Knights from a shaky 3-24 to a respectable total of 4-118, in part thanks to an unbroken fifth-wicket stand with Jeremy Jackson (18).
Three of the Eagles bowlers went for 18 or less off their four overs.
Josh Freestone's economical 2-16 off his four overs wasn't enough to stem the run flow as Mowbray romped home five wickets down.
Dilan Jayalath (58 off 44) led the way with the bat.
Riverside completed a perfect qualification period by successfully defending 6-116 against Mowbray.
Keep scored 48 and Garwood added an unbeaten 23 batting down the order but with five single-figure scores, the total looked fragile.
Ben Spinks (2-13) and Jona Watts (2-20) inflicted most of the damage.
However, after a 60-run opening stand, the loss of Watts for 47 triggered a collapse of 6-22 and the Eagles fell 10 runs short at 6-106.
Keep (3-20) and Artis (2-9 off four) strangled the chase.
South Launceston completed its tournament by cruising to a four-wicket victory against a toothless Westbury.
Ten single-figure scores told the story for the Shamrocks as opener Matt Battle's 15 proved the top score.
Great Dane Anders Bulow produced the exceptional figures of 4-8 off 19 deliveries while Freestone and Brodie Jarrad both took 2-16 off four as all five bowlers claimed wickets.
South's chase looked to have gone off the rails at 3-16 before Tom Waller steered a path through choppy waters with a patient, unbeaten 27.
As wickets tumbled around him, Waller kept his head to see the Knights home with six wickets down in the 18th over. Kaleb Williams (2-7) and Jonathon Chapman (2-8) led the attack.
