The Atlanta Reign opened the final week of West Region qualifying with another 3-0 sweep on Friday at the Overwatch League's Spring Stage.

The Reign swept the Vegas Eternal and improved to an indomitable 7-0, and the Houston Outlaws kept pace in second (6-1) by outlasting the Florida Mayhem 3-2.

In other action, the Los Angeles Gladiators beat the London Spitfire 3-1 and the New York Excelsior blanked the Washington Justice 3-0.

The Reign stifled Vegas 2-0 on Oasis, 3-1 on King's Row and 3-0 on Rialto. They have won 21 total maps and lost just one through seven matches.
