Otter Lutra are on track to defend their Championship 1 title for a 3rd year in a row after  two wins this weekend in Walsall saw them qualify for the second phase of the competition. 

Lutra, who knew they needed one win from their two games to secure their place in the Championship 1, started their first game vs English Roses Masters strongly jumping out to 3-1 lead in the first quarter. Two goals in the second quarter to Bugsy & Anna saw Lutra go into the main break winning 5-2. And from there Lutra controlled the game, adding 3 more goals in each of the remaining quarters to win 11-5.

Otter scorers: Bugsy 5, Anna 2, Linds 1, Helena 1, Gari 1, Izzy 1.

Lutra started strongly again in their second game vs Welsh Wanders. Lutra scored four goals in each of the first two quarters while holding the Welsh to one goal per term to have the 8-2 advantage at half time. The second half was a closer affair but Lutra always looked in control winning the second half 7-5, to take the match 15-7. 

Otter goal scorers: Gari 3, Helena 2, Linds 2, Anna 2, Busgy 2, Heather 1, Sasha 1, Izzy 1, Emma 1.
