In Case of Emergency

When roster size limits a team to just two goalkeepers, there is usually a contingency plan in case something crazy happens. On this team, there are two. Casey Nogueira and Kelley O'Hara have been training a bit with goalkeeper coach Kat Mertz, and today they jumped between the pipes and took some live shots.

Both field players did pretty well... there was a long shutout streak during finishing drills. But in the end, Alyssa Naeher and Kristin Arnold probably don't have much to worry about yet. The four net minders all made friends in the end (with Kat in the middle):

If Casey is 1/2 the keeper her Dad (Victor, Legend!)is, she is very good. Increases her value to any team she plays for. Nice to know she gets in the cage, even if is only at training...
