KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Tri-Cities Fever have played just 1 game in the last 3 weeks. Now, Tri-Cities has used up all it's bye weeks, meaning there's no more down time the rest of the way.
The Fever are bracing for 10 games in a row. It is a stretch that begins this Sunday at home against division rival Kent. The challenge for the 3-1 Fever, outside of the Predators, includes re-focusing and accepting that there will be little rest time the rest of the season.
"We were worried a little bit about what kind of momentum stopper this might be, taking a bye after a big win, but our guys seem focused," said head coach Adam Shackleford.
"We are going to have to find a way to get through that," said Fever Defensive Back Dennis Rogan. "It's going to be tough, 10 straight. I don't think I've done 10 straight since high school or college."
"It's kind of hard just because we're adults now," said quarterback Houston Lillard. "In high school, you only get one bye week sometimes. It's a long time ago, but we're trying just to keep our youth and just play ball."
