Fever beats Texas

May 17, 2014 

The Tri-Cities Fever continued its hot streak Saturday night, defeating the Texas Revolution 55-34 on the road in an Indoor Football League game in Allen, Texas.

The victory gives the Fever a 5-6 record, while Texas loses its seventh straight game and falls to 2-8.

But with three regular-season games remaining on Tri-Cities’ schedule, the Fever is running out of time to make the IFL playoffs.

Colorado (7-3) holds the second and final Intense Conference playoff spot and beat Wyoming 73-12 on Saturday night.

Tri-Cities jumped out to 28-3 lead against Texas and never looked back.

The Fever scored on all five offensive possessions in the first half, as Tri-Cities quarterback Houston Lillard had three touchdown passes and ran for another.

Lillard finished the game 23-for-30 for 207 yards and five TD passes. He also had two rushing touchdowns.

Fever receiver Steven Whitehead caught 11 passes for 84 yards and a score, while Jackie Chambers added seven receptions for 54 yards and two TDs.

Tri-Cities kicker Brady Beeson had a strong game, kicking two of three field goals and a perfect 7-for-7 on extra points.

Clinton Solomoin paced Texas with six receptions for 65 yards and three TDs.

The Fever plays host to the Wyoming Cavalry at 7:05 p.m. next Saturday.
