Fever Overcome Poor Offensive Start to Beat Seattle

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA-- 

     The Tri-Cities Fever won their sixth straight game with a 63-33 victory over Seattle Sunday night.  However, the win was anything but convincing. In the first half the Fever's offense struggled, throwing deep passes down field, trying to expose man-to-man coverage.  Resulting in Houston Lillard completing just 3 of 10 passes to start the game.  Eventually Lillard responded, finishing the game completing 18 of 30 pass attempts for 212 yards and 4 touchdowns en route to victory.

    Lillard said, "We was trying to get up top a little too much early, instead of getting the offense moving and getting into a rhythm. We just tried to take to many shots up field early. So once we got into a rhythm, everything started to click."

    Fever wide out Steven Whitehead added, "We can also be a little greedy sometimes, and try to go over the top and just see if we can do it. Because we feel we have better athletes than anybody else. So as long as they try to play us man we want to take shots over top. It was just some minor adjustments that we had to make and then we came out and put it to the field."
