Jets player and national centre, Shane Webster netted a team-high 18 points while Keon Cameron and Devon Thompson scored 11 points each.

The first quarter ended with Ravens taking a 16 – 11 points lead only for the Jets to take a 26 – 23 points lead at half time.

The seesaw battle between the two sides continued through out the third quarter but Stephney carried his team scoring while Kanhai scored six crucial points for Ravens who were down 58 – 55 with just about two minutes remaining in the game.

The home side allowed Ravens to control the last two minutes of the game at both ends of the floor coupled with a good bench rotation by Darcel Harris to win the contest and the Trophy.

The clubs thanked Trophy Stall, Major Sports Centre and Ansa McAl under their Stag Beer brand, for making the encounter possible.

In the supporting game of the evening, Kashif and Shanghai Kings made light work of Retrieve Raiders, whom they thrashed 70 – 49 to cart off the Major Sports Centre trophy.
