ESCONDIDO, CA (06/16/2018) Knengi Martin put up three rushing touchdowns to propel the San Diego Rebellion over the visiting Everett Reign (6-3) in the first round of the WFA Division II Playoffs.

The win advances the Rebellion (7-2) to the Pacific Region Finals where they'll take on the Mile High Blaze (6-2) in Denver, Colorado on June 30th.

After a scoreless first quarter, Venika Jarvis got San Diego on the board with a five-yard touchdown run.

With nine seconds left in the first half, Martin's direct snap dive to the end zone gave the Rebellion a 14-0 lead at halftime.

Defense ruled the third quarter as both teams were unable to score, but on the very first play of the fourth, another QB sneak touchdown by Martin gave San Diego a 21-0 advantage.

After forcing an Everett punt, Jarvis exploded 25 yards for her second score of the game. It was followed by Martin's game-long 70-yard run to put the finishing touches on the team's first-ever playoff victory.
