The three leading teams all went down to defeat on Sunday, tightening up the standings on the concluding day of Week 3 of the League Championship Series Spring Split.

Perhaps the biggest winner of the day was Dignitas, which opened Sunday's play by defeating TSM, joining TSM in what is now a three-way tie for second place, trailing only Cloud9 by one win.

Cloud9 fell to Team Liquid, while the other team in the tie, 100 Thieves, lost to Golden Guardians.

In the day's other matches, Immortals defeated FlyQuest and Evil Geniuses turned back Counter Logic Gaming.

Team Liquid needed 31 minutes in its win, led by Lucas "Santorin" Tao Kilmer Larsen of Denmark with a 9-2-10 K-D-A. Luka "Perkz" Perkovic of Croatia paced Cloud9 at 7-5-3.

In a match that lasted 56 minutes, Golden Guardians was led by Trevor "Stixxay" Hayes of the U.S. with a K-D-A at 6-2-8. Ian "FBI" Victor Huang of Australia topped 100 Thieves at 7-3-5.
