Accenture immediately reacted with a three point play by Resilla, who saved money in a stage back midrange jumper while motivating fouled to trim the deficiency to 68-70, 13.5 ticks left. 

The Sharks fouled Joerico Maneja whenever down the floor and he coolly sank two free tosses to convey Sykes' lead to four, 72-68. 

With time not on their side, the Sharks fumbled their last hostile belonging to give Sykes the success and the desired title.
