After the New York Excelsior lost the Stage 1 Finals to London Spitfire after being up two games, fans were hoping that they could reverse the curse when they found themselves in a similar situation being down 2-0 to Philadelphia Fusion. Which is exactly what they did when in a stunning reverse sweep took out the Stage 2 Finals 3-2.
And in the process claiming the $100,000 USD bonus for the win. With Philadelphia getting $25,000 USD for being runners up. Fusion were looking pretty good going into the final match-up as they took out Stage 1 winners London Spitfire in the semi-final lead-up. Before ultimately losing out to the top-seeded Excelsior.
Teams will now go on a short break until the beginning of Stage 3 on Thursday, April 5 AEST/NZST. Where in addition to a fresh start for all, will see the addition of Blizzard World into the map pool.
