Otso won the third National series tournament without a single loss!
The pool games were played on Saturday. Otso took easy victories against LeKi (15-8), Disquitos (15-5) and UFO Akatemia (15-8).
Sunday started with the semi-final, where Otso defeated Team without any trouble (15-6). The final was a rematch against UFO Akatemia, but nothing was changed since yesterday: Otso kept the solid offence and rock hard defence, and took a clear victory (15-6)!
The tournament offered a great opportunity for newer players to gain experience and take responsibility in tough games, and many players truly stepped up their game during the weeked. Especially Teemu Säilynoja posed a relentless attitude in defence, and Yrjänä Hynninen really showed what it means to lay out for the disc!
With three National series tournament wins, Otso will defend its title in the National Championship final against Vaasa Saints in 13.9.

Otso is once again officially the king of the north!
The final was played against the leading Swedish team Viksjöfors. In the beginning of the game teams traded points, but Otso's defence showed its strength once again and took a break, half time to Otso 8-6.
In the second half Otso showed no mercy, as the swedes got more tired and Otso's defence kept getting breaks. Fighting hard all the way till the end, Otso took the victory 15-9! This means that Otso will be fighting in the elite division in EUCF! (2 kuva(a)) ... Näytä lisääPiilota
Silver medalists 2014!
Viima put up a hard fight against Atletico in the Finnish Championship final on Saturday.The game was intense and defense was hard on both sides. We managed to slow down Atletico's fast offense especially with our zone defense and good marking on their handlers. The final score was 13-5 to Atletico, but the game did feel much tighter.
All in all, Viima had a great season with it's ups and downs, and the whole team can be proud of the silver medal (and of course the moves on the dance floor at the final party..).
Thank you all for your support throughout the season! VII-MA! ... Näytä lisääPiilota
