Burnaby's Geoff Ryan booted 10 points for the Lakers, including conversions on both five-point tries and a pair of penalty goals.
Canada's World Cup fly half Ander Munro kicked two converts and scored a try to lead the Castaways. Mozac Samson crossed the line for two scores, while Dylan Jones also tallied for the hosts.
