The San Francisco Shock swept the New York Excelsior 4-0 in the losers' bracket final in Burbank, California, on Sunday to book a spot in the grand final of the Overwatch League playoffs.
The Shock will face the top-seeded Vancouver Titans -- who beat the Excelsior 4-3 in the winners' bracket final on Friday -- on Sept. 29 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, with $1.1 million going to the winner. The runner-up will pocket $600,000.
The Titans and Shock met in each of the first two stage playoff finals this year, with the Titans winning the Stage 1 title with a 4-3 victory and the Shock claiming Stage 2 with a 4-2 win. The sides also split two regular-season meetings, a 3-1 Vancouver win in February and a 3-2 San Francisco victory in August.
The third-seeded Shock, who fell 4-3 to the Atlanta Reign in the first round of the winners' bracket, took it to the second-seeded Excelsior from the start on Sunday. They won 2-1 on Lijiang Tower, 3-2 on King's Row, 6-5 on Temple of Anubis and 3-2 on Rialto.
Since losing to the Reign, the Shock have swept four straight matches. The 16-map win streak is the second-longest by any team in 2019, behind only their own 28-map run during a perfect Stage 2.
The Excelsior earned $450,000 for the third-place finish.
