The 2021 Overwatch League June Joust qualifiers continued Sunday with a major upset kicking off the action.

The Hangzhou Spark (3-3, 3 points) won the first of the day’s three Eastern matches in a stunner over the Shanghai Dragons, who sit atop the standings with a 4-2 record and six points.

The Spark pulled off a 2-1 win on Nepal, then followed with a tight 4-3 victory on Numbani. They wrapped up the series with a 1-0 full-hold on Rialto, completing the upset.

In other Sunday action, the Guangzhou Charge (2-4, 2 points) picked up a 3-1 win over the New York Excelsior (2-4, 2 points) and the Chengdu Hunters (4-2, 4 points) scored a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Fusion (4-2, 4 points).

The Charge won 2-1 on Nepal and 3-1 on Hollywood to jump ahead 2-0, but the Excelsior rallied to win 3-1 on Junkertown to stay alive. The Charge took Hanamura 1-0 to close it out.

The Hunters also had a quick start, taking Busan 2-0 and Eichenwalde 2-1, before falling 2-1 on Dorado. The Hunters and Fusion then tied 1-1 on Temple of Anubis, before Chengdu put the match away with a 2-0 win on Ilios.
