One early goal was all it took for Utah State to earn a road win at Fresno State Sunday afternoon.

Senior forward Bailee Hammond put the Aggies on the board early Sunday, scoring her second goal of the season in the ninth minute of the match. She received a pass in from junior defender Kelsey Andersen, bouncing the touch off a Fresno State defender. Hammond blocked the defender's touch and drove past her to the right side of the net to score.

The remainder of the game was very defensive on both sides of the field. The Bulldogs had several opportunities to score, but several shots either narrowly missed the goal or found the arms of senior goalkeeper Sara Cobb. With 30 seconds left in regulation, Fresno State did get a ball past Cobb and into the net, but it was taken back on an offside call, securing the win and shutout for the Aggies.

On the day, Fresno State out-shot Utah State, 17-7, tallying nine shots on goal to USU's four. Cobb ended the day with a career-high nine saves, while earning her fourth complete shutout of the season.

Utah State improves to 6-3-1 overall and 1-1 in Mountain West play. With the loss, Fresno State falls to 5-5-1 overall and 0-2 in league action.

After six-straight road matches, the Aggies return home next weekend for two Mountain West competitions. Utah State will host San Diego State on Friday, Sept. 29, at Noon. New Mexico will then travel to Logan for a 1 p.m. match on Sunday, Oct. 1.
