Cheltenham, so close to defeating Otter (a goal nine seconds from the end by Niamh Moloney gave the London side a 15-14 win), together with Hucknall and Penguin Emperors go to Championship 1 in the second phase of the season.
Coventry won twice, beating Penguin 11-9 and then Cheltenham 16-8, while Manchester defeated Hucknall 13-3.
In Division 2 at Liverpool, Manchester Comets, Exeter and Rotherham Metro guaranteed themselves top five positions and progress to Championship 1. Two more places will be decided on the final day tomorrow.
