Fever Back to Work

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - After ten days off the Tri-Cities Fever players are finally back to work. They're getting ready to host Amarillo on Monday night.  Thursday was the first practice since the team's bye week. Their last game was June 28th at Boise, which was their fourth loss in a row. With a record of 4-9, they are a longshot to make the playoffs.   With three games left, the group is trying to stay positive.
"it's good to be back," said QB Tali Ena. "Morale is up again. We had a tough game we just came off of. Some disappointing things happened, but overall it's good to be back and good to see everyone's faces."
I'm ready to get back out here and play, especially because we control our own destiny," said WR Phil Goodman. "Whether it be to spoil someone else's thing going on or sneak our own way in, we have a chance to make the postseason."
That, however would take winning their final three games and getting a ton of help.
Cedric Walker said he is trying to acquire a new quarterback prior to Monday's game. He also declined to say whether Tali Ena or John Pierce would start at QB if he failed to bring a starter in.
The game is Monday night because of the Jehova's Witnesses convention this weekend at the toyota center.
