Pre-Game Report: Away game against TSS Rovers FC

Game day is here! Harbourside’s opponent this weekend is TSS Rovers FC. It is the middle of the season, and the teams are in the thick of it. They have been working hard these past few weeks, having learned a lot from the first half of the season, and are excited to play TSS. TSS is a club with a long history in the semi-professional soccer world and has been a large inspiration to Harbourside. 


The livestream will be available here! The women’s game starts at 1:30PM, and the men go at 4PM. 



On the men’s side, it’s a log jam at the top of the table. Vancouver Whitecaps and Altitude sit at 12 points, and TSS and Unity sit at 11. If Harbourside wins this weekend, they will be right up there. Harbourside currently sits in 5th place with 7 points. Coach Kevin Lindo noted that the Harbourside’s lads “plan to take the game to TSS and not allow them to get into their rhythm. We must look to tighten up defensively and make our possession count. Another tough game but the lads are training hard and looking forward to it!”

The women’s team has had a challenging season. There have been lots of positives, but they have struggled to get points on the table. TSS and Harbourside have had similar game results, but TSS has one win under their belts. The two teams sit next to each other in 6th and 7th place. The Harbourside ladies are still seeking their first win of the season. Regarding last week’s game against Unity FC, technical lead Daragh Fitzgerald commented: 


“Our HFC women created plenty of opportunities but unfortunately conceded goals at the times that they were starting to gain control in the match. They were well in the game as they have been for most of the games this season but just not quite getting the results to match the performances yet.”


TSS will be another opportunity for the ladies to work on crushing it in the final third. Coach Bobbie Taylor said the team is “excited to execute what we’ve been working on. Lots of tweaking this week and some excellent finishing!” 


It’s been an exciting week for women's soccer in Canada, as League1 just announced their inaugural 2024 Women’s Inter-Provincial Championship. Representatives from 4 provinces will get that chance to fight to be the top women’s Pro-Am team in Canada. It is an incredible opportunity for female players to be seen and League1 hopes it will help continue to grow women’s professional and semi-professional soccer in Canada.
