Elizabeth Lambert, from New Mexico, has been suspended from playing soccer for her school indefinitely after she pulled an opposing player to the ground by her ponytail and made the national headline news. New Mexico lost 0-1 to BYU.
New Mexico was playing BYU in the semifinal of the Mountain West Conference. Video footage shows Lambert using her elbows against players and being very physical in otherways before finally pulling Kassidy Shumway's ponytail.
In a prepared statement, Lambert said: "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."
