Duke will play Wake Forest in women's soccer national semifinal

Kelly Cobb is making another big run.

The Duke University freshman striker and 2011 Chugiak High graduate helped her team earn a spot in the women's soccer national semifinals — also known as the College Cup — with a 2-0 win over Long Beach State on Friday, Nov. 25.

Cobb didn't score in the match, though she did lead the team in shots — including one that bounced off the crossbar.

So far this year, Cobb leads her team in goals (11), points (30), shots (89), shots on goal (40) and game-winning goals (6). 

Duke (21-3-1) will play their Atlantic Coast Conference rival and No. 1 seed Demon Deacons on Dec. 2 at KSU Soccer Stadium in Kennesaw, Ga.

The Blue Devils last reached the national semifinals in 1992, when they lost in the title game.
