The Florida Mayhem, New York Excelsior and Dallas Fuel kicked off Summer Showdown qualifiers with wins Thursday.

Florida defeated the London Spitfire 3-1 to take the early lead in the standings. New York rallied to beat the Houston Outlaws 3-2 and Dallas outlasted the Los Angeles Gladiators by the same score.

The Mayhem muscled out low-scoring victories to take care of the Spitfire. Florida scored a 2-0 win on Busan-UAT and a 1-0 win on Hollywood. London responded with a 2-1 win on Watchpoint: Gibraltar before Florida closed it out with a 1-0 result on Colosseo.

The Excelsior fell behind two maps to none when the Outlaws won 2-1 on Nepal and 3-2 on Midtown. A 5-4 triumph on Dorado got New York back into the game, and it powered through from there with a 1-0 win on New Queen Street and a 2-0 victory on Oasis.

The Fuel kicked off their match by winning 2-1 on Oasis and 3-2 on Paraiso. The Gladiators responded with a 3-2 victory on Junkertown and forced a fifth map by taking Colosseo 1-0. The fifth map was Ilios, where Dallas squeaked out the deciding 2-1 victory.

Qualifying for the Summer Showdown tournament continues through Sept. 4, with double-elimination bracket play scheduled to begin in Toronto on Sept. 8.
