With a defensive-minded victory on Saturday, Daniel “Dcroft” Mycroft advanced to Madden NFL 20 Bowl by taking the XBox One Grand Finals.
Playing as the Seattle Seahawks, Dcroft earned a 7-0 victory over Jacob “JWall” Wallack, who was playing as the Detroit Lions. It was the first ever shutout in a Madden Bowl last-chance qualifier, as well as the lowest combined score.
It was the only matchup of the day for Dcroft, who was waiting as JWall earned a 14-7 victory in the losers’ bracket final over Jacob “Fancy” Worthington, who was playing as the Dallas Cowboys. It was JWall’s second victory of the day in the losers’ bracket.
The final in the PlayStation 4 last-chance qualifier takes place Sunday. Mycroft will face the winner of the PS4 final on Sunday.
