The National Championship series started last weekend in Helsinki with the first Tour, and Otso came in roaring for victory. In the pool games, neither Flying Steps from Russia nor Sleepwalkers could challenge the well prepared bears on their way to the trophy.
In the quarter-final against Saints, Otso showed how to start a game strong: six consecutive goals, and Saints was pretty much disarmed for the rest of the game.
Probably the toughest fight was seen already in the semi-final, where the newly formed team PirU showed guts trying to conquer an opponent almost double the size in roster. The skilled PirU guys did their best, but Otso's defence showed no mercy, taking a break after break.
The final was played against an old rival Team. The hard running young guys played a brave game, but once again Otso proved its position as the king of the hill. Relentless defence combined with solid offence, and a wide and even roster brought five victories and the anticipated first title of the summer.
Throughout the weekend, especially the younger guys showed the direction for the future of Otso. Touko kickstarted many games with enormous layout blocks, and Jasu really stepped up his game as a solid handler, keeping the game alive. Can't wait for the next games to come! ... Näytä lisääPiilota
A lot have happened since last post.
Indoor season was finished and Otso managed to climb back on top of the mountain and take the championship. Turku Terror Ultimate gave a great fight in the tightest game of the season and was able to take the lead in the beginning of the game. Teams were battling troughout the whole game but in the end Otso managed to take few break points to take a win and gold medals. 15-13.
After Indoor season team had a short off season until last week when Otso held their first official practise outdoors. Players were exited to play on big field and lots of smiles were seen. Big up for the new junior players who attended to practise and showed great skills and attitude.
Last Saturday Otso attended to annual preseason tournament Sipoo Open. Coach Ilkka wanted to make players play in positions they weren't used to which gave newer players an opportunity to take more responsibility on the field. Three wins and one tie was a good result for the team in this early season tournament. Especially juniors Emil, Jasu, Joonas and Ilari played a great torunament and our tall hungarian, Adam, was truly an awesome target scoring most of our deep throws. ... Näytä lisääPiilota
Otso took back the trophy of the Finnish indoor Championsip after a years break! We won Turku Terror on the final 15-13. Turku gave an awesome fight, but that wasn't enough this time. We still have to give a big hand to the opponent for a good fight! Thanks Turku! C U next summer on the fields again! Tommi "the Duracell" Lehto got the well deserved MVP. Big Up TK!!!
Now it's time for some celebration!!!

Viiman ulkokausi starttasi tänään virallisesti Sipoo Open- turnauksella! Viima oli saanut koottua monipäiseen rosteriinsa niin uudempia kuin kokeneempiakin pelaajia, jotka kaikki taistelivat tänään hienosti jokaisessa pelisssä. Joukkueen keskinäinen peli parani loppua kohden huimasti, vaikka yhteisiä ulkotreenejä oli takana vain yhdet. Tästä on hyvä jatkaa treenaamista seuraaviin turnauksiin 😊 VII-MA! ...
