The Dallas Fuel defeated the Boston Uprising 3-0 Sunday to lock themselves into the second seed in the West Division at the Overwatch League Kickoff Clash.

Dallas won 1-0 on New Queen Street on the first map of the day, then followed that up with a 3-2 win on Dorado and a 3-0 win on King’s Row to wrap up the victory.

The Fuel finished 5-1 (5 points) in qualifying play to finish a game back of the San Francisco Shock, the No. 1 seed in the West.

The Los Angeles Gladiators earned the third seed by sweeping the Atlanta Reign 3-0 Sunday. Atlanta still made the Kickoff Clash Tournament barely above the cutoff line in seventh.

The Gladiators cruised, winning 1-0 on New Queen Street, 1-0 on Circuit Royal and 2-1 on King’s Row.

Following Sunday’s action, the top three seeds got to choose who they would face in the first round of next week’s tournament. San Francisco chose the eighth-place Washington Justice, Dallas chose the sixth-place Toronto Defiant and Los Angeles chose the fifth-place Houston Outlaws, leaving the No. 4 seed Florida Mayhem with the seventh-place Atlanta Reign.
