Fever Gelling at Right Time

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, Wash--

     The Fever are gelling and at the right time too.  After a less than memorable beginning to this season at 1-5, Tri-Cities finds itself at 5-6.  An improvement that did not happen by accident.

     Various roster changes to the secondary, defensive line, and offense have led to this resurgence.  In fact, one that has the Fever ranked third in the Intense Conference in points per game. 

   Starting Quarterback Houston Lillard said, "We were kind of in a bad spot.  So this game is real important cause it will take a lot of stress off of us for the last two games of the season.  We just want to go in and handle business like we've been doing the last couple weeks."

   Head Coach Adam Shackleford added, "We brought in a lot of rookies, and we knew we might take some lumps early.  But we brought in great athletes.  Guys we knew that once they learned the game would win football games for us."

   Now all that's left is for the Fever to win on the road.  Tri-Cities has yet to do so.  The only win it has picked up on the road was via forfeit.  Outside of that, the Fever have failed to win a true road game.  Their first chance is tomorrow night at Kent.
