Fifth-ranked Duke University had just lost a heartbreaker a day earlier. Now it was time for a morning consolation game, and it was raining; hardly ideal conditions to play soccer.

But Chugiak’s Kelly Cobb wouldn’t have it any other way.

Always one to seize an opportunity, the fabulous freshman connected on her only shot on goal to lift Duke to a 1-0 victory over Ole Miss at a tournament in Auburn, Ala.

It was her third goal in four games, tops on the team.

Cobb, of Chugiak High fame, scored in the 76th minute after taking a feed from teammate Mollie Pathman and beating the keeper from six yards out.
