Meet Elizabeth Lambert, the dirty player on the New Mexico Lobos soccer team. Video below shows Lambert, well, getting quite violent with the players from BYU. Ya gotta see it to believe it.
It all went down yesterday during the Mountain West women’s semifinal between New Mexico and Brigham Young.
Lambert, a pretty blonde defender on the Lobos’ team, is the talk of the ‘net as video of her violent play on the field has been seen by thousands thanks to YouTube. You can see her pretty much rough up any BYU player that gets in her way – kicking one, shoving another, kicking the ball into the face of a player, punching one in the back and the one that shocked me the most – yanking the ponytail of Kassidy C. Shumway and throwing her to the ground. She did eventually receive a yellow card. That’s it. Geez! MMA material, for sure.
For Lambert’s dirty play on the field, she has been suspended indefinitely by the university, with Lambert releasing the following statement for her actions:
“I am deeply and wholeheartedly regretful for my actions. My actions were uncalled for. 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 from the coaching staff and UNM administration. 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 who were personally affected by my actions. I have the utmost respect for the BYU women’s soccer program and its players.”
Many feel that her tactics on the field were merely in response to what was being done to her but really…did she need to be so violent in return?
As a biography, here is what we know on Elizabeth Lambert. She was born on December 29, 1988 so her age is 20 years old. While in high school, she helped her team win two championship titles while a sophomore and junior and won numerous awards.
