Suddenly the exploits of New Mexico’s Elizabeth Lambert seem like child’s play. An 18-year-old player from Lewisville High School in South Carolina took exception to being tripped during a soccer game, dragging her opponent to the ground by the hair and pummeling her. The attack was only stopped when spectators and a referee ran up and pulled the two apart.
Annette McCullough, 18, dragged the victim to the ground by her hair before punching her 11 times in the head and upper body as the girl curls up to protect herself. The attack happened during a soccer match between Chester High School and Lewisville High School on Monday.
Chester County Sheriff Richard Smith told WBTV that deputies were called to Lewisville High School to the report of an assault. McCullough is being charged with simple assault, according to the incident report from the Sheriff’s Office.
Referees will review the video with the South Carolina High School League to see if any punishments will be handed down.
