Ed Trujillo's three-yard touchdown run in the third quarter gave Georgetown a 23-19 homecoming victory over visiting St. Peter's yesterday.
Although Trujillo (79 yards on 24 carries) was the offensive star, defensive backs Paul Hebert and Kevin Reynolds each intercepted two passes and led a strong second-half defense.
Turnovers led to most of the first-half scoring as St. Peter's led, 19-14.
After Claude Smith recovered a fumble for the Peacocks (1-4), Frank Pestana's one-yard touchdown run gave them a 7-0 first-quarter lead.
Both Georgetown scores came after Hebert's interceptions put them in excellent field position. Greg Mazur scored from 11 yards out and quarterback Mike Boland threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Keith Speidel.
The Peacocks went ahead when Pestana scored from three yards out and Chris Bujnowski caught a four-yard pass from Ken Flora.
Dave Barnitt brought the Hoyas within three when he tackled Flora behind the goal for a safety at the beginning of the second half.
The play also set up Trujillo's winning score; a short punt on the subsequent free kick put the Hoyas (3-2) deep in Peacock territory.
