Women’s College Soccer Is Grimey
Check out this Women’s soccer game in the Mountain West Tourney between BYU and New Mexico. Both sides were going at each other all match, but Lobo’s defenseman defensewoman #15 Elizabeth Lambert, made some questionable plays all day reminiscent of suspended Florida linebacker Brandon Spikes. At various points in the game Lambert was seen throwing elbows, rabbit punches and even goes as far as yanking a BYU player down by her pony tail when nobody, except the eye that never lies, was looking.
The Lobos lost the match 1-0 and after reviewing the video evidence, which probably just meant watching Sportscenter bash the dirty play, decided to suspend Lambert indefinitely. In reaction to being caught up Lambert released a statement saying:
“I let my emotions get the best of me in a heated situation. I take full responsibility for my actions and accept any punishment felt necessary. This is in no way indicative of my character or the soccer player that I am. I am sorry to my coaches and teammates for any and all damages I have brought upon them. I am especially sorry to BYU and the BYU women’s soccer players that were personally affected by my actions. I have the utmost respect for the BYU women’s soccer program and its players.”
The statement is obviously a bunch of B.S., because it’s safe to assume that Lambert has played with this style of aggression for most of her career, but since nobody really watches Women’s college soccer to begin with, it probably went unnoticed except for the girls who were victim’s of the foul play. But a wise man once said that, “if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying,” so we give Lambert kudos for trying harder than Avis to get her team the win.
