Harrison to Miss Remainder of Season
Sept. 21, 2009
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech senior forward Brittney Harrison will miss the remainder of the soccer season after suffering a knee injury in Friday's 2-1 loss to Alabama.
Harrison, a Plano, Texas, native, entered last weekend with a team-high five goals and one assist. She had also previously netted the game-winning goal in each of Tech's four wins to that point.
One of the top players to ever enter the Tech program, Harrison wraps her Tech career ranked fourth all-time in points (57) and goals (24), tied for sixth in assists (9), and second in game-winning goals (10).
"It's obviously disappointing that we won't have Brittney the rest of the season," Tech head coach Tom Stone said. "Brittney is a game changer and has made a career out of scoring winning goals. Her speed can't be replaced, but I am confident that certain players will step forward to fill the void left by Brittney on our front line. Brittney has done so much for this program over her four years, and I'm disappointed her career has to end this way."
After completing its non-conference schedule with a 2-1 victory over Weber State Sunday, Tech (5-4) begins Big 12 play Friday night with a 7 p.m. match against Iowa State. The Red Raiders complete the weekend Sunday against Nebraska an hour earlier than expected, as the two schools moved kickoff time to noon Monday morning.
