AGGIE HOT SHOTS - Senior Jayme Gordy (Cheyenne, Wyo.) and sophomore Brigid Turner (Las Vegas, Nev.) picked up right where they left off after the 1999 season, each scoring their first goal of the year in Saturday's game against Dixie College. Sophomore Megan Edge (South Jordan, Utah) also turned in a goal in the second half to seal the Aggie victory over Dixie.

USU VS. DIXIE GAME RECAP - Utah State's women's soccer team dominated Dixie College winning 3-1 in its second and final exhibition game of the year Saturday. The Aggies didn't wait long to make their mark in the scoring column, knocking in a goal just six minutes into the contest. Senior Jayme Gordy scored her first goal of the season off a pass from freshman Ally Clegg (Bountiful, Utah). Just two minutes later sophomore Brigid Turner booted in the Aggies second goal putting USU on top 2-0 after just eight minutes of play. Dixie spoiled a possible shutout in the second half when sophomore Amy Gustaveson scored Dixie's only goal in the 49:00. USU responded with its third and final goal when sophomore Megan Edge scored the second goal of her collegiate career off a pass from Turner.
