Gordon Named To College Soccer News National Team Of The Week

Oct. 20, 2003


Oregon State senior men's soccer player Alan Gordon has been named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week, it was announced Monday.

Gordon, a forward, spearheaded No. 17 OSU's attack in a 3-1 win over No. 8 Washington in Corvallis on Sunday with two goals in the first half.

The national selection marked the third time in his career that Gordon has been picked for a national team of the week; he was tabbed for College Soccer News and SoccerAmerica teams last year in his first season as a Beaver after transferring from Yavapai Junior College in Arizona.

Gordon is currently third on OSU's career scoring charts with 59 points in less than two full seasons. He leads OSU with 25 points (11 goals, 3 assists) this year.

Gordon has now scored five goals in the last two meetings with the Huskies, including three in a 6-3 win at home in 2002.

He joins Peter Billmeyer as the second consecutive OSU selectee to a College Soccer News Team of the Week this year; Billmeyer, a senior goalkeeper, was picked last week after shutting out Stanford and California on the road.
