Major playoff implications will be at stake when these inner-city rivals match up for the second time this season. While this will be considered a road game for the Surge, they will not have to leave town as they visit the hosting Rebellion at Balboa Stadium, located on the campus of San Diego High School in Downtown San Diego.
Following a 42-14 victory in the 2019 season-opener, the Surge are 1-0 against the Rebellion.
Last Time Out
Looking to redeem a 22-10 loss the prior week, the Surge battled the visiting Seattle Majestics to a 20-20 tie as time expired in overtime.

Notching her third 100-yard rushing performance of the season, Deana Guidry recorded 172 on 23 carries while adding two touchdowns to her team-leading total. Melanie Quijano scored the first touchdown of the game on a 5-yard run, while contributing with an interception and two tackles on defense. Mercedes Tyler put up four tackles (2 for loss), a sack, and a fumble recovery.
