The Dallas Fuel and Atlanta Reign made big moves up the West division standings by feasting on bottom feeders Sunday in the final day of Week 3 at Overwatch League Kickoff Clash qualifiers.

The Fuel (4-1) jumped into second place by beating the last-place Paris Eternal, 3-0. The Reign (3-1) movedup to third in the West by also sweeping the winless Vancouver Titans, 3-0.

Both the Titans and Eternal are 0-5.

In Sunday's other West division match, the Washington Justice (3-2) missed a chance to join Dallas at 4-1 when they lost 3-1 to the Boston Uprising (2-3).

The Fuel started with shutouts in each of their first two maps, winning 2-0 on Ilios and 1-0 on Midtown. Dallas finished the sweep with a 5-4 victory on Circuit Royal.

The Reign produced a 2-1 triumph on Ilios before winning 3-1 on Midtown, then took down the Titans with a 3-0 decision on Route 66.

The Uprising jumped all over the Justice early, taking maps on Oasis (2-0) and King's Row (2-0) for a quick 2-0 advantage. Washington won 1-0 on Circuit Royal to pull within one, but Boston claimed New Queen Street 1-0 for a much-needed victory.

Qualifying for the Kickoff Clash continues through May 29, with double-elimination bracket play to follow from June 2-5.
