Anne Makinen Named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week

Notre Dame freshman midfielder Anne Makinen has been named BIG EAST offensive player of the week after scoring three goals and an assist this weekend against No. 1 North Carolina and No. 5 Duke. She was named offensive MVP of the adidas/Lady Footlocker Classic for her performances this weekend. She joins Jenny Streiffer who has also been named BIG EAST player of the week earlier in the season.

Against North Carolina, she connected on a free kick from 25 yards to put the Irish up 1-0. Later in the game, with the Tar Heels up 2-1, Makinen chipped a perfect pass to Jenny Heft to assist on the tying goal in the 2-2 tie. In Sunday's game against Duke, she added two more goals both from long range. For the season, she has five goals and two assists.

The second-ranked Irish return to the field when they travel to Rutgers and Villanova for a pair of BIG EAST road games this weekend. With a 7-0-1 record overall and 3-0-0 in the BIG EAST, Notre Dame is looking to remain unbeaten in BIG EAST games this weekend.
