Georgetown’s Camille Trujillo – On Target Again
Villanova 1 (Ryan 23?) – 3 (Trujillo 19?, 28?, Brenn 38?) Georgetown
Camille Trujillo’s electric form continued through to Georgetown’s Big East opener, as she netted a brace to help the Hoyas sink hosts Villanova, 3-1. The visitors used a rapid three goal burst in nineteen minutes in the opening forty-five minutes to overcome what Georgetown coach Dave Nolan called a “very flat” second half performance. Trujillo, so deadly thus far in 2010, netted the match winner and her sixth of the young season as she latched onto a through ball from Georgetown’s little midfield wizard Ingrid Wells. Trujillo had also opened the scoring after Kelly D’Ambrisi played a defense splitting pass to the top of the box and the waiting striker. A calm finish past Nova keeper Jamie Kranich gave Georgetown an early lead. Katie Ryan would ensure Villanova wouldn’t be behind for long sneaking a shot off a Hoya defender and just under the bar off a rebound from her own shot which had been previously saved by Georgetown keeper Jackie DesJardin. Kaitlin Brenn iced the game in the thirty-eighth minute after receiving a throw-in from Samantha Baker and finishing past Kranich. The Hoyas cooled significantly after the half, only forcing substitute keeper Kelsey Quinn into one save. The Wildcats couldn’t find any answers offensively though, and the home fans were consigned to leaving disappointed, their ten match home unbeaten run ended.
