The British women’s U17 Water Polo team qualified for the 2015 European Games in Baku with a comprehensive defeat of Switzerland in their final qualification game.
London Otter’s Kathy Rogers scored seven for the Brits as they romped home 30-0 to finish second in the group, following victory over Portugal, a draw with Czech Republic and a one-goal defeat by France in their other three games.
The Brits still had to rely on hosts France to see off Switzerland in the final match of the day and the French duly obliged, winning 14-7 to top the group with four wins from four.
Great Britain and Czech Republic both finished on seven points with the Brits securing the second qualification place courtesy of their superior goal difference.
The women's squad became the second British team to qualify for this summer's inaugural European Games, following in the footsteps of the GB synchronised swimmers who secured their spot last month.
The British men's U17 water polo team fell agonisingly short of joining their female counterparts as they finished third in their group after a one-goal defeat to hosts Malta.
While pre-tournament favourites Germany cruised through the group unbeaten, the battle for the second qualification spot saw the Brits take on Malta on Saturday with the winners progressing.
And while the Brits started strongly, winning the opening quarter 3-2 then staying tied at 4-4 at half time, they slipped two goals behind in the second quarter and could only claim one back in the final eight minutes, ultimately going down 7-6.
