Gordy scored her second goal of the season against Nevada. Gordy is ranked first on USU's all-time career goal list with 32.

USU VS. KENTUCKY GAME RECAP -
Utah State recorded its first victory of the 2000 season shutting out Nevada 4-0 Sunday afternoon. Senior Jayme Gordy was the first Aggie to find the net scoring off a penalty kick at the 33:19 mark. Gordy's goal sparked USU's offense as it went on to score the second goal of the period when freshman Ally Clegg dribbled the ball from 20 feet out and booted in the first goal of her collegiate career in the 39th minute of play. In the second half Utah State waited until the 74th minute to score again as transfer Jessica Ebner found the net from five yards out off a pass from Clegg. Eleven minutes later, at the 84:42 mark Clegg sealed the Aggie shutout scoring her second goal of the day and the Aggies fourth and final goal of the game. Big West Soccer Standings
