Team SoloMid put together a dominant showing Sunday in its series sweep of Echo Fox during Week 8, Day 3 of the North American League of Legends Championship Series Spring Split in Los Angeles.

Team Solomid (14-2, 28-14) got rolling in Game 1 thanks to jungler Dennis "Svenskeren" Johnsen's Rengar stellar performance. Svenskeren was making plays all over and participated in the first 11 of TSM's kills on his way to a 7/1/9 KDA (kills/deaths/assists). Echo Fox (5-11, 13-25) couldn't disengage and kite away from teamfights as Team SoloMid's winning trades gave it control of the map and all neutral objectives. After Team SoloMid secured Baron it squashed any resistance Echo Fox put up and pushed to win Game 1.

Echo Fox was fine with giving TSM's jungler Svenskeren the Rengar pick again in Game 2 as both teams drafted pretty much the same compositions as Game 1. Predictably, Team SoloMid ran out to an early lead as it won the early teamfights and lane trades. Once the map started to open up in the side lanes, Echo Fox kept getting picked off as it overextended. Echo Fox continued to contest Team SoloMid's attempts to take objectives, but got aced when fighting over the Baron 26 minutes in. TSM used the Baron to take down two inhibitors before resetting, then making the series-ending push to lock up Game 2.

Team SoloMid will look to further cement its first-place status as it plays ninth-place Team Liquid on Saturday at 3 p.m. ET. Echo Fox still has a shot at a playoff spot, but it'll need to win in Week 9, starting with FlyQuest on Friday at approximately 9 p.m. ET.
