Fever Say They Won't Have a Repeat of Last Saturday

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Tri-Cities Fever's lead has been cut to the slimmest of margins.

They have just a half game lead in the Pacific Division, this after Tri-Cities got beat up 58-20 last weekend by Fairbanks. The Fever insist they are still in the driver seat in the division as the push towards the playoffs continues.

Tri-Cities looks to even up their series with Wenatchee Valley at home Saturday.

Coach Adam Shackleford says the Fever will definitely be better than they were last week.

"We won't have another game like we just had," said Shackleford. "We are the front runners and we need to act like it and we're going to."

"I think there's always no room for error because we want to win football games and every error you make will make it easier to become a loss," said quarterback Houston Lillard. "I'm not worried about, whatever the number is, as to how far ahead we are. As long as we are ahead, I think we can stay ahead."

Fever battle Wenatchee Valley Saturday at the Toyota Center at 7:05pm.
