Caught On Tape: Female Soccer Player Gets Rough

New Mexico's Elizabeth Lambert took physical play a little too far during the Lobos Mountain West semifinal soccer game against BYU Thursday.

Lambert pushed, punched and pulled Cougar players throughout the game, which was won by BYU 1-0.

First, Lambert pushed Carlee Payne to the ground.

Then, Lambert punched Payne in the back.

Later, Lambert pulled Kassidy Shumway to the turf by her hair.

Lambert was not penalized for the hair pulling, but afterwards her coach suspended her indefinitely.

Lambert's coach calls her a good student, but adds her actions crossed the line.

    "Jim" you hated sports for the same reason that a few other little boys hate sports. You weren't very talented and lacked any athletic ability. A sure way to find a kid who hates sports is to look for one who isn't very quick, fast, strong, graceful or skilled. When you are so easily outshined by the normal kids, it causes you to hate the venues where your weaknesses are highlighted. You should have tried more artsy stuff like finger painting and sewing dresses from patterns and whole cloth. I compensated for my lack of athletic ability by crowing loudly and growing a big mustache.

    She certainly lost control, and I hope she is punished accordingly.TO LAMBERT..I have children as well, but it is sports (even if it is soccer)and sometimes it is best to let the other players handle their own form of retaliation. As my son's football coach says,"this ain't no pie eating contest".

    She needs to be behind bars and let someone show her what physical actions will do to her in there since she think she's all tough!!

    somebody needs to cut her ponytail off and dangle it in her face and then mess her hair up so bad that she has to get it all cut off or better yet let the girl she threw on the ground shave her head. that would teach her a lesson and suspend her from school for the rest of the school year.bar her from playing or attending any school ball games to.
