Boys Soccer – Week 8 Surf Taco Player of the Week: Gavin Harris, Pinelands
Week 8 Surf Taco Boys Soccer Player of the Week
Gavin Harris, Pinelands
Harris took over in goal early in the season and settled in nicely as Pinelands’ keeper of the future. He also proved he is a keeper for the present when he saved three penalty-kick attempts by Toms River South in Pinelands’ 3-0 shootout victory over the Indians in the South Jersey Group III opening round. Harris also turned in a shutout over the 100 minutes of that game, keeping a three-time defending sectional champion off the board to allow his team to advance.
Pinelands went on to reach the South Jersey Group III final, the first trip to the sectional final round for the Wildcats since 1989. Harris posted a second postseason shutout in a 5-0 win over Cherry Hill West that spanned two days due to rain.
Harris beat out Wall's Aidan Newbury and Neptune scoring machine Wilby Alfred for this week's Player of the Week honor.
