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.

Jakov Basic made a long run into the box, settled the ball with his right foot after receiving a cross from Duran Lee, setting up a left-footed blast that went over the goal keeper's head. You can watch the sequence below beginning at the 1:21 mark.

Achara – Georgetown

Georgetown defeated UCLA 1-0 in the Hoyas' third shutout of the season and second victory over a ranked opponent. Sophomore forward Achara scored the match's only goal in the 12th minute after he took advantage of a misplayed ball from the Bruins' keeper.
