[NOTRE DAME-GEORGETOWN] Ryan Finley's second straight two-goal performance -- this time with goals 23 seconds apart -- propeled No. 10 Notre Dame to a 3-0 win over No. 9 Georgetown in Big East play on Saturday afternoon.
 
Notre Dame (10-2-0) opened the scoring in the eighth minute when former U.S. U-20 Dillon Powers sent a corner kick into the box and after the ball was knocked around in front of the goalmouth, junior forward Alex Priede scored his third goal of the season.
 
Georgetown had opportunities in the opening half, the best of which came in the 30th minute when Andy Riemer blasted a shot that hit the underside of the crossbar.
 
Harrison Shipp set up Finley's first goal in the 66th minute when he played the ball ahead to Finley, who beat a Hoya defender and made it a 2-0 contest. On the second goal, Finley took a nice pass from freshman midfielder Patrick Hodan and drilled the ball off the crossbar and into the back of the netting for his team-high 10th goal of the season.

“This was a great win and a great advertisement for college soccer,” said Irish coach Bobby Clark. “It was two very, very good teams going at it and it was an exciting match. Ryan Finley made some great runs today and he actually could have had a few more goals. He said at halftime that he could have had a hat trick. The big thing with Ryan is that he makes fantastic runs and as a striker sometimes you make them and sometimes you don’t. It was nice that he got a couple goals in the second half.”

Oct. 6 in South Bend, Ind.
Notre Dame 3 Georgetown 0. Goals: Priede 8, Finley (Shipp) 66, Finley (Hodan) 66.
