KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Tri-Cities Fever get their third chance to take out the Boise Burn this weekend at the Toyota Center.
The Fever are winless in their first two games with the Burn. A month ago, the Fever took a 77 to 28 drubbing in Boise, one of their worst losses of the season.
This weekend's game will very much be about whether the Fever can get their offense going. The Fever rank dead last in terms of scoring offense in the af2 while the Burn are in the top 10.
"It's not so much a rematch to me," said Fever Head Coach Pat O'Hara. "To me it's more of an opportunity for our team to execute the basics offensively and to play a little tighter defensively. The last time we played them we really didn't have that much pass rush against them and then offensively, we turned the ball over. Those are things we need to fix."
"We know Boise is a good team," says Fever Defensive Back Jamie Hattley. "We know they are having a great season but we know we got the crowd behind us this week so we are going to try and feed off that and come in Saturday and compete."
