CHESTER Jets' season ended in disappointment in Birmingham on Sunday when they were beaten in the final of the BBL Championship Play-offs after knocking Brighton Bears out in the semi-final the previous day.
Sharks finally completed their quest for the only piece of silverware missing from their trophy cabinet with an 86-74 victory.
In a tight game throughout, both sides traded baskets in the opening period with Chester sneaking a 19-18 advantage going into the second quarter.
Chester opened the second period scoring seven of the opening 10 points of the quarter, but the Sharks came straight back with a 15-6 run to take the score out to 41-34 with 1:29 remaining in the half.
The third period saw the Jets close the gap to a single point at 55-56 off the back of a 10-3 run, before Rob Yanders hit the final four points of the quarter to give the Sharks a 60-55 lead going into the final stanza.
The final period saw the Sharks open with a 7-2 tear to lead 67-59 early in the quarter. Chester came straight back with a John McCord net and took next four points to reduce the deficit to four at 63-67.
This was as close as the Jets got to Sheffield, as the Sharks extended their lead to eight points at 79-71 with two minutes remaining.
Even though a Michael Nurse three-pointer with 1:41 remaining bought the Jets to within five at 74-79, HL Coleman and Yanders held their nerve from the foul line to secure Sheffield's victory.
Lynard Stewart won the MVP award with an game-high 25 point haul, while Nurse shone for the Jets netting 21 points personal.
