Women's soccer player suspended for dirty play

Saturday, November 7, 2009

A dirty play during a women's soccer match is getting some national attention because of the blatant violent roughness caught on camera by one player.

New Mexico junior defender Elizabeth Lambert is seen in video from the game against Brigham Young shoving one player, kicking another, kicking the ball into another's face (for which Lambert received a yellow card) and finally violently yanking an opponent to the ground by her pony tail.

Lambert’s actions have made her an Internet celebrity for the wrong reasons. Highlights have been airing nationally since Thursday night.

"I am deeply and wholeheartedly regretful for my actions," Lambert said in a statement released by New Mexico.

"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 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."
