Washington, D.C. - Georgetown scored midway through the first half and added a goal late in the second half as the Hoyas posted a 2-0 win over Cal State-Fullerton in the second round of the Cal State-Northridge Tournament at Matador Stadium Sunday afternoon.

The win clinched the tournament title for the Hoyas, who improve to 2-0 this season. Fullerton falls to 1-1 overall.

"It was a pretty good performance," Head Coach Brian Wiese said. "We won the tournament, which is great, and we had some All-Tournament selections. We had a lot of good performances from the guys today. A lot of guys came and played very well."

Senior forward Peter Grasso (Burr Ridge, Ill./Hinsdale Central) was one of five Georgetown players selected to the All-Tournament Team. Grasso scored two goals in two games and was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Offensive Player. Junior defender Len Coleman (Basking Ridge, N.J./Pingry School) was named the Most Outstanding Defensive Player. Other Hoyas selected to the All-Tournament Team included junior midfielder Scott Larrabee (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Loyola), redshirt freshman goalie Mark Wilber (Tijeras, N.M./Albuquerque Academy) and sophomore midfielder Rob Burnett (Plano, Texas/Plano West).

Grasso put the Hoyas on the board in the first half, scoring on an assist from senior midfielder Corey Zeller (Toms River, N.J./Toms River).

Sophomore forward Chandler Diggs (Coppell, Texas/Coppell) put the game away late in the second half, scoring with about three minutes left after taking the ball around midfield and creating a one-man fast break. "It was a pretty well engineered goal by Chandler," Wiese said. "It was nice to see us put that second one in."

After a pair of wins on the road to open the season, Wiese was pleased with the results from the weekend. "We beat Northridge at their place and this was certainly more of a home game for Fullerton," Wiese said. "The guys demonstrated an ability to get results away from home and that is certainly a good sign. There are things we can do better, and we learned a few things from it, but the good news is that we were able to get two wins out on the road."

Georgetown makes its home opener on Friday, September 5, hosting Davidson. Kick-off at North Kehoe Field is slated for 3 p.m.

"We've got to tidy up some things before the Davidson game," Wiese said. "I think the guys are excited to come home and play in front of our fans."
