Strong Safety Christina Webb (#45) celebrates with teammates after a critical interception in the third quarter.
SANTEE (06/27/2015) This first-round playoff bout had all the makings of a classic grudge match between bitter rivals. It featured hard hits, flaring tempers, multiple unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, and a hard fought battle by two teams with a short but storied history.
Things got so heated, the referees needed a police escort after the game due to alleged threats by the War Angels' sideline.
Despite all the dramatics, the San Diego Surge (8-1) came away with a 27-7 victory and will move on to the conference semifinals, where they'll host the Seattle Majestics (9-0).
