Fever Secures Home Playoff Game With 66-53 Win Over Beaumont
BEAUMONT, Tx - There's no place like home, especially when that's where you're playing a playoff football game. The Fever had cinched up a wild-card playoff spot before Saturday's 66-53 win over the Beaumont Drillers, but now they can be assured they'll be playing their 1st-round game at the Toyota Center.
The game will be played on a Monday due to a Jehovah's Witness convention that had reserved the arena in advance. Fever co-owner Terri Carr had to petition the league to get the change of date.
As for the game, the Fever used a high-scoring 2nd quarter to down the Drillers. The Fever scored 30 points in that quarter. The offense, under new quarterback James McNear was efficient averaging just under 5 yards per play. McNear was 13-28 passing for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns.
The Fever has a bye next weekend before facing the Billings Outlaws on the road Saturday, June 24th.
