Murillo's First Career Goal Lifts Titans in Double Overtime

Sept. 28, 2007

Box Score

SAN JOSE, CA - Freshman Christina Murillo's first career goal with less than two minutes remaining in the second overtime lifted visiting Cal State Fullerton to a 1-0 victory over host San Jose State on Friday afternoon at Spartan Field in San Jose, Calif.

The win was the Titans' fifth in their last six contests as they improved to 5-3-1 overall on the year. Fullerton has gone to overtime four times in nine matches this year, posting a 2-1-1 record, with three of those contests going to a second OT period.

The Spartans fell to 1-6-2 overall on the year.

Despite taking a season-high 27 shots on the day, the Titans were held scoreless for 108 minutes until Murillo struck with just 1:44 remaining on the clock.

Senior Stacey Thompson passed to teammate Nicole Scheid, who sent a cross Murillo's way in the center of the penalty area. Murillo then put a header just over the goal line behind SJSU goalkeeper Nina Butera for the only score of the match.

It was the fifth match decided by a single goal for the Spartans, who were coming off their only win of the year last Sunday against Northern Iowa after going winless in their first seven matches of the season.

Fullerton junior goalkeeper Shayla Sabin posted her second consecutive shutout in net for the Titans, who surrendered a season-high 21 shots, but only two were put on net.

Senior Lauren Cram, who had scored in each of Fullerton's last three matches, and junior Leslie Munoz led the Titans with five shots on the day.

San Jose State's Jessica Scott had a match-high seven shots while Butera made a career-high nine saves in net for the Spartans.

Cal State Fullerton finishes up its road trip on Sunday afternoon as the Titans take on Fresno State at 2 p.m. Gametracker will be available via the link on the women's soccer schedule page at
