The Florida Mayhem, Dallas Fuel and Washington Justice proved victorious Friday during West division action in the Overwatch League Kickoff Clash qualifiers.

The Mayhem moved into second place with a 3-0 win over the New York Excelsior, the Fuel slid into third in the West by also earning a 3-0 sweep over the Toronto Defiant and the Washington Justice moved up to fourth after a 3-1 decision over the last-place Paris Eternal.

Florida opened with back-to-back 2-0 map wins on Ilios and Eichenwalde, then finished with a 5-4 nailbiter on Dorado.

Dallas began with a 2-0 blanking of Toronto on Oasis, then scored a 3-2 victory on King's Row before taking the match with a 1-0 win on Circuit Royal.

Washington also jumped out to a 2-0 lead, winning 2-0 on Lijiang Tower and 5-4 on King's Row. Paris pushed back by winning 3-2 on Watchpoint: Gibraltar for just its second successful map of 14 in the event. But the Justice ended all Eternal hopes with a 1-0 decision on Colosseo.
