"Three-Alarm Threat" to silence Thunder

July 5, 2007 - arenafootball2 (af2) - Louisville Fire News Release

LOUISVILLE, KY - The Louisville Fire (6-6) look to repeat their earlier season performance, this Saturday in Freedom Hall, against the visiting Mahoning Valley Thunder (5-7) at 7:00pm. The Fire outscored the Thunder 52-34 accumulating most of their points in the first half of the game.

Not only are "sweeping" bragging rights at stake for the Fire this game, but the importance of making a run to the post-season. "We have the talent, we just need to work harder on our consistency putting it all together" said FB Demetrius Forney regarding winning the remainder of the season. If Louisville notches a win against the Thunder, it will put them right back in the thick of the division and playoff hunt.

"Our playoffs begin this week" according to Louisville Fire WR Tony Stallings who recently returned to the game after sustaining an injury a few weeks ago at home against division rival Green Bay Blizzard. "We know we need a strong win not only to get us on the right track but our fans deserve it," said WR Tiger Jones on what the Fire is looking to accomplish this weekend.

Once again the "Three-Alarm Threat," of WR Tony Stallings, WR Tiger Jones and FB Demetrius Forney will take the field and do what they do best...scoring touchdowns. "Our defense has played well, but it is time for our offense to step it up a bit and take advantage of every scoring situation whenever we get the ball" said Head Coach Tommy Johnson on what the team needs to do to win this week.

Avoid the summer heat inside the air-conditioned Freedom Hall this Saturday at 7:00pm. For ticket information please call 502-368-0009. "FUN FIRED UP!"
