Recap: Surge defeats Rebellion 47-27

BALBOA STADIUM (05/25/2019) Deana Guidry was responsible for four touchdowns as the San Diego Surge (3-1-1) cruised to a 47-27 victory over the hosting San Diego Rebellion (2-3), ending a two-game winless streak.

A 14-yard touchdown run by Knengi Martin put the Rebellion on the board first.

Following a 20-minute delay due to an injured player, Guidry found Kaycee Clark in the corner of the end zone for a 7-yard score to tie the game at 7-7 with 59 seconds left in the opening quarter.

A wild second quarter began with Clark catching another touchdown pass from Guidry, this time between three Rebellion defenders before racing 41 yards to the end zone to give the Surge a 14-7 lead.

On the ensuing possession, Martin's pass was intercepted by Melanie Quijano and returned 41 yards for a pick-six, extending the Surge lead to 20-7.

But the Rebellion continued to fight. Rookie running back Merci Scott broke away from multiple tackles on her way to a 68-yard dash for a touchdown, cutting the Surge lead to 20-13 with 11:34 left in the first half.

A goal line dive by Bri "Simba" Gorrell put the Surge up 27-13, but the Rebellion answered back when Martin ran 14 yards for her second score of the game.

Hanging on to a 27-20 advantage, the Surge put up 13 unanswered points, including a 38-yard Hail Mary from Guidry to Quijano with 1 second left before halftime, extending the lead to 40-20 at the break.

Both teams traded touchdowns in the second half, but the Surge held on their first win in nearly a month.

The Surge returns to Santana High School next Saturday, June 1st to close out their regular-season schedule against the first-year Denver Bandits. The Rebellion will host the Seattle Majestics in what could be their final chance to earn a playoff berth.
