The Los Angeles Gladiators swept the Houston Outlaws 3-0 on Sunday in West Region play of Overwatch League’s Midseason Madness qualifying competition to continue their dominant stretch of play in June.

The Gladiators kicked off the month by winning the Kickoff Clash Tournament and currently sit at 7-2 in Midseason Madness action. Los Angeles sits in second place in the West behind the San Francisco Shock, who are 10-0 after beating the Florida Mayhem 3-1 on Sunday.

After the Gladiators secured a 1-0 win on New Queen Street, they narrowly edged Houston on Watchpoint: Gibraltar, winning 4-3 before a 1-0 victory on Eichenwalde to claim the victory.

Boston Uprising beat Paris Eternal 3-0 in the other West Region matchup to improve to 3-6. Boston currently sits below the cutoff just behind the Washington Justice, who have five points compared to the Uprising’s two.

In Sunday’s only two East Region contests, the Hangzhou Spark cruised past the Shanghai Dragons 3-0 and the Los Angeles Valiant edged the Guangzhou Charge 3-1.
