Sport: Both the medal places, play-off places, relegation and qualification were distributed before the final series round on Sunday, but the Vipers used the opportunity to complete another perfect series season. Sunniva Næs Andersen scored nine times for the superb series winner.

At the same time, table jumbo Aker said goodbye to the elite series with a strong 34-21 victory away to play-off-ready Fredrikstad. It was the team’s fifth win of the season.

Romerike Ravens and Follo already knew their qualifying opponents before Sunday’s games. Romerike lost 29-30 at home to series three Sola, without it making any difference. Ravens will be in action against Flint Tønsberg, Follo against Volda.

As early as Tuesday, the Vipers begin the play-offs with the first quarter-final against Gjerpen Skien. It is played best of three matches.

Series runners-up Storhamar meet Oppsal, Sola meets Fredrikstad, while seventh-placed Molde was not selected until only fourth-placed Larvik remained.
