Otter kicks off Super 5's in Leeds

The Super 5 season kicked off last weekend @ Leeds University with a tight match between Otter & the 2015 women's super 5 title holders Liverpool Lizards. Otter jumped out to an early lead with goals from Claudia Ferrone and Brooke Tafazolli before Liverpool levelled at 2-2. Liverpool then took charge scoring three times without response in the second period. Otter fought back in the third with both teams exchanging goals before a scoreless 4th quarter saw Liverpool take the win 8-4. 

A few hours later and Otter were back in action against Coventry. Coventry started strongly building a 7-4 lead thanks to four goals from Claire Walmsley. Otter quickly levelled in the 4th quarter with goals from Brooke Tafazolli and Lex Higlett. Rhianne Oscroft then restored Coventrys narrow advantage before Kathy Rogers scored for Otter with 3 minutes remaining, levelling the scores at 9 all & getting the point for Otter.

Otter retired the number 10 cap for both games this weekend in memory of Australian Waterpolo player Cole Miller. For a young man who lived a fair game. #cozziesoutforcole
