TSS Reaches Mid Point of PCSL Season

With roughly 8 games already complete, TSS Academy is now half-way through its inaugural season with the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL). It's been a positive experience thus far as both the women's Premier and Reserve teams continue to compete in this well established summer league.

The Reserve team under Brendan Quarry has seen a good deal of success as they currently sit undefeated at the top of the table. The squad is one of the youngest in the league, comprised primarily of academy players from U16-U19.

"The team has done well so far," says head coach Brendan Quarry. "There's a good mix of players on this squad who seem to gel quite well as a team. Despite our positive results in terms of the scoreline, we're still pushing to find a consistency in our performance. Things continue to improve in that regard so we're pleased overall. "

The team meets up with Fraser Valley Action this weekend at Trinity Western University. Fraser Valley Action currently sits 2 points behind TSS in second place in what will prove to be an important match for both teams.

The Premier team under Colin Elmes has faced some formidable opponents in the league thus far as the squad still searches for their first win. The team is easily the youngest in the premier league, comprised primarily of U18 academy players who are preparing for college soccer in the fall.

"It has been a challenging but predictable start to our schedule," says head coach Colin Elmes. "We were under no illusions when we placed these young players into this environment. The main goal all along was to expose these university bound players to the 'adult' game to help them prepare for what's ahead. We have achieved this goal and I expect that the group will improve its performance over the second half of the season"

The team meets up with the Okanagan Whitecaps this weekend at Vancouver College.
