RICHMOND, Va., April 15, 2013 -- James Madison sophomore midfielder Steph Finley (Media, Pa./Sacred Heart) has been named Colonial Athletic Association lacrosse Player of the Week for the week ending April 14.
Finley led the Dukes to a 9-8 triple-overtime win at Hofstra on April 12, as she scored a team-high four goals and led JMU with three ground balls. She also had a game-high three caused turnovers. Her four goals tied her career high.
She played a key role in that comeback win, as the Dukes trailed by three goals late in the second half. Finley tallied the team's first two goals in a run of three consecutive goals that tied the game in regulation and forced overtime.
Finley scored twice while only taking three shots in a 16-9 victory at Drexel on April 14. She also had a ground ball and a caused turnover in the match.
With two regular-season games remaining, Finley ranks second on the team in goals with 25.
JMU improved its record to 9-5 overall and 4-1 in CAA play with last week's victories. The Dukes clinched a berth in the four-team CAA Tournament, scheduled for May 3 and 5 at the home field of the top-seeded team.
