Sometimes in women’s soccer, hitting an opponent in the face once with a throw-in just isn’t enough (video)

What’s the toughest, most dangerous sport? Some say rugby, others, American football. My vote is for women’s soccer — I’ve played the former two, but I’d never get onto the pitch with some of these girls.
It was a Division III college match between Amherst and Colby, when Amherst defender Emily Little decided that nailing Colby midfielder Maddie Tight in the face with a throw-in would be a good thing to do. Not once, but twice.
Amherst was up 1-0 when Little went slightly berserk, drawing a yellow card for noggin’ bashing. Little was knocked to the ground after the second shot, and it doesn’t look like she’s flopping. And some in the crowd are not amused.
And to think, all of this could have been avoided if Amherst had got going a little sooner on that Sportsmanship Statement.
