Surge set for grudge match in playoff opener

Women's Football Alliance Playoffs (Round 1)
Santana High School (Santee, CA)
Saturday, June 27th, 2015 @ 7:00 p.m. PST

Series History

First Meeting: July 13, 2013 - Central Cal 40, Surge 14 (Playoffs) 
Previous Meeting: June 13, 2015 - Central Cal 23, Surge 14
Surge leads the all-time series 3-2


Going into the opening week of the WFA playoffs, the San Diego Surge find themselves in a unique position; facing a team they loss to just two weeks prior.

The 23-14 setback on June 13th was only the second regular season loss the Surge has ever been dealt, and is being called one of the biggest upsets in league history. While the Surge will be seeking redemption, the War Angels should come into this game highly confident with momentum on their side.

This will be their third meeting of the season with both teams earning a win on their home field. The team that prevails will face the Seattle Majestics or Tacoma Trauma in the conference semifinals on July 11th.
