Coach Gallimore on Rasmussen
"Kelsey is a very good goalkeeper. She is one of the top `keepers we have ever had. If we can get things going on both sides of the ball, Kelsey has a great chance to put up some really low numbers as a goalkeeper. She is a very calming presence in the back for us, she plays with her feet, and she is solid in every area of her game."
