Wells Leads Georgetown to 3-1 Win at Louisville as Hoyas Complete Weekend Sweep
Oct. 10, 2010
WASHINGTON - Junior midfielder Ingrid Wells (Upper Montclair, N.J./Montclair) scored a goal and assisted on one more as the Georgetown University women's soccer team posted an impressive 3-1 road win at Louisville on Sunday afternoon.
It was the fourth win in the last five games for the Hoyas, who improve to 11-4-0 overall and 5-2-0 in the BIG EAST Conference, while Louisville falls to 9-5-0 overall and 3-4-0 in league.
The win completed a weekend sweep of National Division opponents for Georgetown, including the team's 3-2 win over Cincinnati on Friday night. Georgetown has now won three league games on the road.
The Hoyas, who took nine shots in the first half, took a 1-0 lead late in the first half when freshman Alexa St. Martin (Westford, Mass./Westford Academy) scored on a header from three yards out off a cross from junior Samantha Baker (Long Beach, Calif./Wilson).
Well had a hand in both of Georgetown's second half goals as the lead grew to 3-0. In the 52nd minute, the Hermann Trophy candidate knocked in a shot from 10 yards out, sending her shot to the upper corner of the goal.
The lead grew to 3-0 seven minutes later when Wells sent a cross in from the left side and found junior forward Camille Trujillo (Albuquerque, N.M./St. Pius X), who headed it in from nine yards out at 59:04.
Georgetown held an 18-9 advantage in shots, with 11 shots on goal and held a 2-1 edge in corner kicks.
Senior goalie Jackie DesJardin (Sunnyvale, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) made three saves in the win.
Georgetown will return to action next weekend with another pair of conference road games, starting on Friday, Oct. 15 when the Hoyas visit Pittsburgh for a 7 p.m. kickoff. On Sunday, Oct. 17, the team will visit West Virginia, with a 1 p.m. kickoff.
