The Texas Revolution (1-2) only found themselves down to the Tri-Cities Fever (1-2) only once throughout the entire game. Not by 3 or 7, but by 1 point. The rare Rouge occurred on the opening kickoff as a Revolution player was tackled in his own endzone. Playing with a 1-0 deficit, the Revolution did not look rattled.
The Revolution strung together 17 consecutive points to lead 17-1 going into the final drive of the 1st half. After penalties and several minutes of real-time action, the Revolution defense found themselves pinned near the goal line. Not wanting to give up a Fever score before the half, the defense came up huge and forced a fumble and went into the locker room with confidence and momentum.
The second half was more back and forth than the first, but big interceptions by Scooter Roger (his 2nd of the night) and A.J. Nicholson gave the Revolution enough room to win 40-37.
Frankie Solomon Jr. returned a kickoff for a score early in the second half and gave the crowd some life coming out of the locker room, and Brett Peddicord added four field goals on the night, including one in three of the last four drives of the game..
The Revolution now sit at 1-2 in IFL play and travel up to Washington to face this same Fever team in their home.
