Ilg Earns Player of the Week Honor After Tritons Dominate Non-Conference Foes
Release: Tuesday 09/07/2010 

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - California Collegiate Athletic Association officials announced UC San Diego's Annette Ilg as the women's soccer Player of the Week for Aug. 30 to Sept. 5. The 5-foot-10 forward recorded three goals in the Tritons' first two games of the 2010 season.

UCSD defeated two Pacific West Conference opponents in dominating fashion, topping Dominican 6-0 on Thursday before notching a 2-0 victory Saturday over Notre Dame de Namur.

Ilg, transitioning to the soccer squad after serving as a key member of the UCSD basketball team the past four years, tallied two goals Thursday while using her size for positioning in the box and out-jumping DU defenders to win headers. It marked her first competitive soccer match since high school in Avon Lake, Ohio.

On Saturday she added her third goal of the season, which would turn out to be the game-winning score in the 2-0 win over NDNU. With two games played, Ilg leads the Tritons in points and goals scored.

Ilg's week of Aug. 30 to Sept. 5 marks the first Wilson/CCAA Player of the Week honor awarded this season.

UCSD, now ranked No. 6 nationally at the Division II level, will begin conference play Friday with a 4:30 p.m. home match against No. 23 Cal State L.A. On Sunday at 12 p.m., the Tritons will host No. 9 Cal State Dominguez Hills.

Wilson/CCAA Women's Soccer Player of the Week:
Aug. 30 - Sep. 5: Annette Ilg (UC San Diego).
