Fever Win First Game!

Posted: Updated:

FRESNO, Cal - The Tri-Cities Fever officially have their first win in the AF2! 

The Fever defeated the Central Valley Coyotes 49-44.  It was a tight ending to the game with the Fever turning the ball over and committing a costly pass interference penalty that gave the Coyotes a first down inside the 10. 

But a great defensive effort by the Fever stopped the Coyotes in their tracks.  With the Fever up by 5 points and the clock running down, the Coyotes driving to the end zone,  phenomenal coverage by defensive back Muhammad Shamsid-Deen broke up a touchdown pass in the end zone to give the Fever the win.

It's the first win for the Fever in its new league, the af2.  The Fever is 1-1 in the Pacific Conference after beating conference rival Central Valley.  The overall record is 1-2.
