Think playing two quarterbacks in football is a neat trick?

Try playing two goalkeepers in soccer.

Can’t be done, right?

Maryville senior Karly Wolford and junior Grayson Patterson have pretty much flattened that premise this season. The Lady Rebel dual keepers distinguished themselves in a 3-1 win over Hardin Valley in the Region 2AAA championship game on Thursday.

Maryville (18-1-3) hosts Science Hill (17-3-1) in a sectional final this evening.

Kickoff is 7 p.m.

When you watch the video, pay particular attention to an otherworldly piece of skill from Maryville senior Grace Oliver. Reyna Coston was, legitimately, whistled offside on a first-half scoring try, but, no matter.

It’ll crack you up.
