Finley notched five points on two goals and an assist to help the Fighting Irish go 2-0 and win the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic. The Lumberton, N.J., native scored two goals in a 3-2 win against San Diego State, scoring the game winning goal in the 82nd minute.
Finley followed up with an assist on the game winning goal in Notre Dame’s 2-1 victory against Clemson. His efforts earned him a nod on the IU Classic All-Tournament Team and BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week.
The Disney Soccer/NSCAA National Players of the Week are announced every Wednesday. One male and one female player is selected by a committee from nominations submitted by NCAA Division I conferences.
The winners will also be recognized during the NSCAA College Game of the Week broadcast on FOX Soccer.
