Fever riding momentum from first win

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. - A record of 1-4 is a lot better than 0-5, and the Fever have Saturday's 13 point, 4t- quarter comeback to thank for it. "This is Arena Football," said new QB Josh Kellett. "You're never out of a game."
Kellett tossed 7 TD's in his Fever debut, including one to Phil Goodman on the last play of the game that tied the score at 48. Kyle Hooper kicked the game-winning PAT right afterwards to make the final score 49-48. Kellett kept his team in it throughout.  "That's what I kept telling them on the sidelines," he said. "Just keep doing your job offense. The defense is gonna come through, I promise. You're never out of a game in this league cause you can score so fast. It feels good to get a win." 
"The team really came together," said Hooper. "We had a few changes here and there. They (new players) came in and this week of practice was really good. The team, on the road, We got down and we never got to pick ourselves back up.  This time we stayed in it and fought till the end. I feel this is really what we needed."
