She put the ball into the back of the net.

She scored in the seventh minute to kickstart a three-goal outburst that carried the Duke women’s soccer team to a 3-1 victory over the University of Alabama Birmingham in NCAA action in Durham, N.C.

It was Cobb’s first goal in four games this season.

She received a crossing pass from a teammate and roofed a rocket into the upper right corner from 12 yards out.

Cobb, of Chugiak High fame, is among Duke’s greatest playmakers and ranks in the top 10 all-time with nearly a point per game average.

For her career, she has 21 goals and 12 assists for 54 points in 62 games.
