Lady Lobo Soccer Player Makes National News for Beating Up Mormons
The good news? Last night’s “SportsCenter” did a segment spotlighting UNM sports. The bad news? It was centered on the brutally unsportsmanlike conduct a Lobo dished out in a NCAA women's soccer game against Brigham Young University.
The offending player was Elizabeth Lambert, a UNM junior and backliner on the Lobo Women’s Soccer team. She may usually be on defense, but as you’ll see in the game footage, that night Lambert seemed to be playing an offensive position—in a hockey match. The ESPN commentators describe the game as having “MMA qualities.”
The Freshman Rookie of the Year, Who's Who Scholar Athlete and Principal's Honor Roll student can be seen grinding her elbows into BYU players, kicking her rivals in the head when they’re on the ground and, most shockingly, calmly yanking on a rival player’s long, Latter Day Saint-sanctioned braid with so much force that it slammed the player flat on to her face. UNM lost the game 1-0, even.
According Lambert’s official player bio on the Lobo Athletics site, the 21-year old is majoring in University Studies with a focus on Occupational Therapy. Which, you know, seems like a really good idea.
