The London Spitfire emerged the champions of the inaugural season of the Overwatch League today, handily defeating the Philadelphia Fusion at the sold-out Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The Spitfire needed just two sets to send the Fusion packing, leaving a third set of games scheduled for Saturday evening unnecessary. The London team aggressively shut down the Philadelphia team on Friday night in the first set with a score of 3-1. During a press conference after Friday night’s win, the Spitfire appeared calm and confident (and at times, pretty cocky). The Fusion, on the other hand, looked already defeated. The team rarely spoke during a Q&A session with press, leaving Fusion head coach Yann “Kirby” Luu to serve as mouthpiece for the rest of the team.
On Saturday, the Spitfire again steamrolled the Fusion, finishing the second set of the Overwatch League finals with a score of 3-0. While fan-favorite Fusion players like Josue “Eqo” Corona and Jae-Hyeok “Carpe” Lee pulled off spectacular plays for their six-man squad, they were no match for the team-play of the Spitfire.
