Pre-Game Report: Second Leg of the Reid Davidson Charity Shield

Road trip! Both Harbourside squads are catching the early ferry Saturday morning and making their way to Kamloops to play against Rivers FC. This weekend’s match is a special one, as it is the second leg of the home-and-home, total points Reid Davidson Charity Shield. The clubs are working together to honour and remember Reid, and to establish scholarships in his name in their communities.

The Harbourside and Rivers women’s team sit seventh and sixth, respectively, in the standings. Both teams are seeking their first win. One of the women’s top scorers, Jazmine Wilkinson said she’s “excited for the game, there’s a lot to play for this weekend which is hopefully some extra motivation to get a big win on the road.” Shea Battie commented:

 “I think we’ve had a really great week of training, with a focus in areas that will break down Rivers and correct mistakes from the last game against them. I have nothing but great expectations for the team going into this weekend, especially with it being a special game for Reid.” 

Head Coach Bobbie Taylor noted:

“We’re super excited to play for the Reid Davidson Charity Shield. I know we’ll find a little extra in ourselves. This is also a big game to get ourselves in the mix of potential playoffs. Taking care of details will be the difference.”

It will be an exciting match, get ready for some action! 

The men’s Harbourside and Rivers teams are in a similar situation. Both teams sit at four points overall, with the men in fifth and Rivers in sixth due to goal differential. Both have one win under their belts and are no doubt eager for another! Head coach Kevin Lindo remarked:

“We’re in a slump that we need to get out of so we’re all definitely feeling that we have a lot more to offer. It’s been a solid week. The lads have worked hard. We’ve tried to drill home on what we expect of each other. The attitude has been great and once again, we feel like we can definitely come away with a positive result. It will be tough, but we’re confident. We’re going with an experienced squad, and we’ve shaken up the team a little bit.”

Captain Fergus Hall said “The lads are feeling ready and excited to go on Saturday! We’ve had a great week of training and we are ready to get our season back on track against Rivers. We definitely have something to prove this week, so we are ready to give everything we can to bring home the 3 points!”

The women’s game starts at 4PM PST, and the men go at 6:30PM PST. Catch them live on YouTube! For the harbour!
