Rebellion set to take on #1 Utah in Pacific Conference Final


🏆 WNFC Pacific Conference Championship Game
🏈 #2 San Diego Rebellion (7-0) vs. #1 Utah Falconz (7-0)
📍 Hunter High School (West Valley City, UT)
📅 Saturday, July 17th 🕔 5:00 PM (PT)

Following a hard-fought 19-16 win over the Las Vegas Silver Stars in Thursday's semifinal round, the San Diego Rebellion (7-0) will have only one full day to prepare for the toughest test of their phenomenal season: the top-seeded Utah Falconz (7-0). This conference championship matchup between one of the top offenses and defenses in the WNFC will be the first-ever meeting between these teams.

The winner earns a trip to the WNFC IX Cup Championship game in Dallas, to take on the champions of the Atlantic Conference.

The Falconz have shown no signs of slowing down since their heartbreaking defeat to the Texas Elite Spartans in the inaugural IX Cup in 2019. After finishing the regular season undefeated and averaging over 50 points per game, they continued their dominance with a 40-0 win over four-seed La Muerte De Las Cruces in Thursday's opening round.

All-Purpose threat Gina Magana provides the spark to Utah's league-leading rushing attack. She finished a phenomenal regular season campaign with over 1000 yards and 20 touchdowns and added two rushing scores to her total during her previous outing.

The Rebellion offense, also run-dominated, is led by the power scrambling ability of quarterback Knengi Martin and the elusive running of Adriana Gutierrez. The duo combined to score all three touchdowns in their win over Las Vegas. In the passing game, Martin will look to Chelsea Parrish, who made some clutch catches on fourth and long to keep drives alive. Katie Ott is the Rebellion's leading receiver, but has proven effectiveness in the defensive secondary.

Angela Mims was a key contributor in her return from injury. She'll be assisted by linebackers Mercedes Tyler and Stephanie Lopez in the front seven as they try to slow down the Falconz' high-powered offense.
