Chester High School played Lewisville High School on Monday and when Annette McCullough, 18, fell after a seemingly innocuous foul, she responded in quite frankly mental fashion, pulling her opponent to the ground and punching her multiple times.

Fittingly, McCullough was immediately sent off with a red card, escorted away from the field with the aid of an assistant referee.

Shortly thereafter Chester County deputies were called to the scene and McCullough was charged with third-degree assault and battery.

Referee Alan Parker said afterwards: "Some incidental contact ended in one girl going down and she just got up and started pummeling.

"It's unfortunate, it really is. Contact is a part of soccer, but when you retaliate like that, obviously, there is no place in the game for that.

"Occasionally you have players that go at it, on the field together, but in this case it was just one girl pummeling the other girl. And she didn't stop which is even more egregious."
