Southland Sharks 3X3 basketball players celebrate the team’s win against the Hawke’s Bay Hawks at ILT Stadium Southland in Invercargill on Saturday night.

In what was a cliffhanger final, the Sharks were able to take victory in a hotly contested game which they won 21-19.

For Sharks players Hyrum Harris, Alonzo Burton, Dom Kelman-Poto and Alex Pledger, it was a sweet victory.

At a moment when it was the next two-pointer which determined the game, it was Burton who sent the fans into celebrations when he was dished up a treat and hit the game winner.

In the women’s final it was the Etco Auckland Dream who beat the Platinum Homes Harbour Breeze 18-16.
