Cobb notches 25th goal of star-studded Duke career
Chugiak’s Kelly Cobb scored in her first start with the Duke University women’s soccer team four years ago and today she scored in her final home game.
The senior striker now needs one more goal in the season finale to reach the top 10 in school history.
With her team down 1-0 entering the second half, Cobb scored the equalizer in the 58th minute after she settled a long pass and beat two defenders before sending the shot into the top-right corner.
The goal was the 25th of Cobb’s career and her fifth on the year.
Duke beat Boston College 2-1 on Senior Day.
Cobb, of Chugiak High fame, ranks 13th in Duke history with 64 points on 25 goals, 14 assists in 77 games. She is tied for seventh with 0.33 goals per game for her career.
She has netted eight game-winning goals, including six as a freshman when she bagged 11-9—31 totals and led Duke to NCAA title game.
