Harris Named to TopDrawerSoccer Team of the Week

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina women’s soccer junior midfielder turned defender Jyllissa Harris was named to’s Team of the Week after her performance against College of Charleston, the publication announced Tuesday. 

The step-in center back scored an insurance goal in the Gamecocks’ 3-0 win over the Cougars on Sunday while also making her first career start as a center back position at the collegiate level. The goal for Harris is the second of the 2020-21 season with the Hazlet, N.J., native scoring the goal off a free kick in the second half. 

Harris’ performance was not limited to her offensive output on Sunday as the junior help lead the Gamecocks to a dominant defensive performance, allowing just two shots in the shutout victory. Harris and the Carolina back line allowed just one shot on goal and did not allow a single shot in the second half despite only defender Camryn Dixon returning to start in the same position as in the fall portion of the season.

South Carolina has now been honored on the TopDrawerSoccer Team of the Week seven times during the 2020-21 season with Harris being the sixth-different Gamecock to be named. Harris and the No. 11 Gamecocks (8-3-0, 6-2-0 SEC) will have this week off before returning to action on March 21, at 2 p.m., against Coastal Carolina (7-6-0, 6-4-0 Sun Belt). All home matches during the spring season can be seen on SEC Network + or the ESPN App.
