Dominic Francis has scored a goal this season and defender Nelson Santana is not only leading the backline but has produced two goals and two assists in Harrisburg’s first four games. Tavoy Morgan is a livewire and is looking to build on his rookie start with three goals so far this season.
Mississauga Players To Watch:
No player is more well known and recognized than the Metro Star’s leading scorer and Canadian soccer legend, Dwayne De Rosario, who has nine points in his indoor soccer debut season through four games. Also key to the Metro Stars offensive production have been Molham Babouli, Marco Rodriguez and Martinho Dumevski. Defensively, Joshua Paredes has four blocks so far on this young campaign and goalie Adrian Becic interestingly has two assists in three games played.
