It meant that, if the Scots defeat bottom team Penguin Emperors tomorrow and both Sheffield Sharks and Leeds Sharks lose their matches, Caledonia will join Liverpool Lizards, City of Manchester, Otter and Coventry in the top tier.
The Lizards cruised through their latest match, crushing Leeds 20-2. It wasn't so straightforward for Otter, who led 5-2 early in the second quarter against Coventry only to find themselves all square at 6-6 in the third as the Midlanders scored through Vicki Hawkins (2), Rhianne Oscroft and Claire Walmsley. However, Otter's experience showed in the final period as goals by Lex Higlett, Peggy Etiebet and Hannah Patchett secured an 11-8 win. Claudia Ferrone scored four for Otter.
Casey Smith (4), Ella Chadderton (3) and Emma Bartlett (3) led the Manchester scoring in a 12-7 defeat of Penguin.
