WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - OREGON STATE sophomore forward Robbie Findley has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Nov. 9-15, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Findley, from Phoenix, Ariz., accounted for all of the Beavers' scoring in Oregon State's 3-2 overtime victory over No. 9/20 Washington.

The Huskies tied it up with seven minutes left in regulation, forcing overtime. In the game's 94th minute, Findley scored the golden goal to give the Beavers the victory.

With the hat trick, Findley finished the season with a team-leading eight goals, good for second most (tied) in the Pac-10. His 19 points on the season also led the Beavers, and was tied for third most in the Conference.
