Jordan Shuts Out Copper Hills
Coach Goyzueta started the Copperhills game with a new lineup. For the first 20 minutes of the game, Jordan had a very difficult time offensively and Copperhills created more scoring opportunitites than they did. During the last 20 minutes Jordan struggled offensively but finally got a goal off a great assist from Erin Fuller to Lacey Christenson. The only other goal in the first half was by Paige Collett.

After Coach Goyzueta made some lineup changes in the 2nd half, scoring opportunities were created. Five goals were scored in the 2nd half by Kelliann Farr, Erin Fuller (2), Heather Perry, and Lindsey Lamph. Assists were by Katie Koelliker, Kelliann Farr, Paige Collett, Lacey Christenson, and Erin Fuller. In addition, shots on goal were by Katie Koelliker, Amber Nordhagen, Lori LeFevre, and Jessie Rossi. It was good to have Jessica Darrow back in the game after her injury.

Jordan JV 3 vs Copperhills JV 1. All of Jordan's goals were scored by Heather Perry except one "own" goal put in by Copperhills. Assists were by Loren Blaisdell and Michelle Betenson.

State Tournament 1st Round
Jordan vs Viewmont

Jordan girls will play Viewmont at Centerville Jr. High on Tuesday, October 14. The game starts at 4:00 p.m. Jordan finished the season in Region 2 fourth place with a record of 8-4-2. Viewmont held 2nd place in Region 1 with a win over Northridge. Weber dropped to 3rd place in Region 1 after losing to last place Clearfield on Thursday.

Jordan has finished 2nd in the State Tourament for 3 years straight--losing to Alta, Skyline, and Mountain View in close championship games. Viewmont lost last year in the 1st round of the tournament. The last time these two teams met was in the 2001 State Tournament. Jordan beat Viewmont in the Semi-final game with a shootout.

This looks to be a great game with Jordan, especially if Jordan uses their advantage of experience in the playoffs. See you at the Game!

Jordan "beets" Bengals
A "Tamed" Tigger

The first half of the game Brighton had the wind advantage resulting in five shots on goal—all handled easily by keeper Holly Davis.   The first half of the game was evenly balanced between Brighton and Jordan. Both teams created scoring opportunities and both teams countered with good defense. Heather Perry showed her speed and made a couple of nice crosses. Katie Koelliker and Brittany Zitting both had strong challenges for the ball in the center while Jessi Rossi and Lacey Christenson made some good offensive plays and runs. The Jordan defense of Kaycee Petersen, Carrie Colton, Amber Korb and Suzi Pehrson played strong. Freshman, Natalie Wheatley, saw her first Varsity opportunity and played well.

The first goal was scored in the second half on a corner kick. Katie Koelliker kicked the ball from the corner to Suzi Pehrson who crossed the ball to the front of the goal. Lacey Christenson charged the ball and hit the crossbar. The ball rebounded to the front of the goal and Lacey got her foot on the ball again and placed it at the back of the net. A few minutes later Suzie Pehrson received a ball from Lacey Christenson a few yards from the half line. Suzi kicked a long, hard shot to the goal which the keeper touched the ball but couldn't hang on and it went into the goal. The goal was called back by a linesman who claimed obstruction by Jordan player in an off-side position on the 18 yard line. This only made Jordan more determined to score. Amber Nordhagen made a nice pass up the field to Erin Fuller who ran onto the ball and shot it into the net.   By now the wind had stopped and the rain was pouring down. A determined Brighton team created several opportunities to score in the last ten minutes, however, keeper Holly Davis made several nice saves and shut them down. The game ended 3 2 to 0.

Jordan 4, Riverton 0
The lady diggers had a hard time scoring during the first half of the game. Several scoring opportunities were created and eight players had unsucessful shots on goal. Amber Korb played solid defense in the center back holding Riverton to only 2 scoring opportunities. The score at half was 0-0.

All four goals were scored in the second half. Lacey Christenson scored a nice goal with a header. Other goals were scored by Erin Fuller and Amber Nordhagen with assists by Brittany Zitting, Lacey Christenson, and Lori LeFevre. An "own" goal was scored on a great corner kick by Suzi Pehrson as the Riverton defense tried to clear the ball.

Jordan Scores 5 goals in West Jordan Shutout.
The coaches are probably still trying to figure out who came to play the first half of the game against West Jordan. There were eight shots on goal, but none of them could get to the back of the net. The score at half time was 1-0. The lone goal was scored by Paige Collett with an assist from Lacey Christenson.

The second half was a different game. Kelliann Farr (the FTL bandit) scored the 2nd goal by using her whole body to put the ball in the goal. The other goals were scored by Paige Collett, Erin Fuller, and Courtney Oldroyd. The assists were by Loren Blaisdell, Erin Fuller, Lori LeFevre and Nicole Major. Heather Perry played aggressively at forward forcing several corner kicks. Kelliann Farr played a feisty game with several challenges against the defense and goalkeeper.

Hat Trick for Erin Fuller in 3-2 win over Bingham
You Goal Girl!

Jordan defeated Bingham at Beetdigger Field Thursday August 28th by 3 goals to 2.    Jordan came out ready to play. Katie Koelliker had a hard shot early in the game that just missed wide of the goal.   The Jordan offense of Jessie Rossi, Erin Fuller, Katie Koelliker and Lacey Christensen kept the pressure on the Bingham defenders resulting in a goal in the 22nd minute off a hard cross from Lacey Christensen. Bingham’s keeper punched the ball out, but Erin Fuller got her foot on it and put the ball away.    Bingham countered with their fast offense and scored a goal in the 24th minute. At about the 30th minute a shot was blocked by keeper Holly Davis, but Bingham got the rebound and put the ball in the net for their 2nd goal. Jordan kept the pressure on and in the 39th minute Lindsay Janicki put a nice ball in front of the goal on a free kick and Erin knocked it in for her 2nd goal. The game was tied 2-2 at halftime.

Jordan came out strong in the 2nd half resulting in another goal by Erin Fuller with an assist from Lindsay Janicki in the 45th minute.   Brittany Zitting, Katie Koelliker, Lacey Christensen, and Erin Fuller all had scoring opportunities and shots on goal during the 2nd half. Keeper Cindy Woolsey played a nice 2nd half in the goal by saving five Bingham shots on goal.   Jordan was awarded a PK about the 70th minute. Katie Koelliker hit a nice shot to the right side, but the ball was bumped wide by a diving Bingham keeper. Final score was 3-2 for Jordan.   Hillcrest and Jordan are currently tied for 3rd place in Region 2.

Rematch favors Alta

Jordan lost to the Alta Hawks in their first Region 2 game of the 2003 season. The last time they met Alta was in the 2002 5A Utah State Championships--losing in the last 17 seconds 0-1. Alta dominated the first half of play. Alta's first goal was scored by beating Jordan's defender and kicking the ball to the side of the goal out of the reach of Keeper Holly Davis. Alta had five shots on goal during the 1st half with Holly making some great saves. Jordan had 2 unsuccessful shots on goal by Brittany Zitting and Jessie Rossi. The score at half time was 0-1.

Alta had 7 shots on goal during the second half and scored two. One goal was scored on a hard free kick that was placed perfectly in the upper corner of the goal. The second goal was on a quick header into the goal. With about 14 minutes remaining in the game Jordan's Paige Collett found the ball right in front of the goal after Alta's defender was knocked to the ground by another Jordan player. Paige fired the shot, the Alta keeper got a few fingers on the ball but couldn't hold on, and the ball found the back of the net. The last 13 minutes of the game saw shots on goal by Lacy Christenson, Lindsay Janicki, Amber Nordhagen and Sara Robison, but the Alta keeper stopped them all. Jordan's defenders Amber Korb, Jessica Darrow, Lindsay Janicki, Kaycee Petersen, Suzi Pehrson and Carrie Colton was given a workout by the fast Alta offense but hung tight and made some nice aggressive plays. Keeper, Holly Davis also had a good game by saving 10 of Alta's 13 shots on goal.
