BURBANK, Calif. — A Shanghai esports team has finally secured a victory after losing its first 42 matches, a skid that carried into the Overwatch League’s second season.

The Shanghai Dragons went 0-40 as an inaugural “Overwatch” franchise in 2018 and lost their first two matches this season before beating the Boston Uprising on Friday night. Players high-fived on stage after clinching the win, and fans at the 500-seat Blizzard Arena broke out a loud “Let’s go Dragons!” chant.
