Duke University sophomore Kelly Cobb, a 2011 Chugiak High graduate, helped the United States to a 1-0 win over Germany in the finals of the FIFA Under-20 Women’s Soccer World Cup on Saturday, Sept. 8 in Tokyo.

Kealia Ohai scored in the 44th minute for the only goal of the championship match.

Cobb will now return to a Blue Devils team that was 5-1 through Sept. 9. Cobb led Duke in scoring as a freshman last season, helping the Blue Devils to a runner-up finish in the NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer national tournament.
