Junior Kayla Keller proved she can do a little bit of everything for the Rush girls' soccer team. She had a solid showing in net, stopping two shots for a shutout, and scored on a penalty kick to lead Rush to a 2-0 win at Bodine in a Public League game Friday. 

With the game still scoreless and less than two minutes left in the first half, the Knights had an opportunity for a penalty kick and their coach, Todd Corabi, made a surprise decision and called Keller from her goaltender position to attempt it. She converted the penalty kick for a 1-0 lead, which Rush took into the intermission.

In the second half, it was time to freshman Kylie Connors to make an impact. Eight minutes into the half, she put one in the back of the net for the first goal of her high school career. 

Rush used only eight girls the rest of the game, but Bodine couldn't find a scoring touch.

Bodine has scored only one goal this season.
