Jon Gallagher – Notre Dame

Notre Dame senior forward Jon Gallagher had a heroic individual performance in the Fighting Irish's 3-1 victory over Boston College in their ACC opener. He scored all three goals after halftime – twice on free kicks and once on a header.

Tate Schmitt scored his first goal of the season – the 13th of his career – on this beautiful header in Louisville's 3-1 loss to Wake Forest.

Cam Lindley – North Carolina

Cam Lindley's second goal of the season gave the Tar Heels a 2-1 victory in their ACC opener against Pitt. He capitalized on an errant pass from Pitt's back line with a 25-yard strike from the right side of the field. You can watch the play below beginning at the 0:19 mark.
