KENNEWICK, Wash - The Tri-Cities Fever play at Bakersfield in two days, and as of now they don't have a kicker! Their usual kicker, Wes Virgilio, will be suspended and will miss at least two games. The team says it's for personal reasons and would not elaborate. They're looking to get someone in before tomorrow.
Virgilio had struggled all year going only 17-29 on point afters, and two for three on field goals. He missed two extra points in the loss at Green Bay Friday. Coach Tony Wells had been going for two point conversions most of the time seeing as how Virgilio's strength was on kickoffs. We'll keep you posted on who the teams bring in.
