South Carolina teenager Annette McCullough has secured headlines across America after she embarked on a vicious assault during a girls High School soccer game earlier this week.
Chester High School played Lewisville High School on Monday and when McCullough was tripped by the touchline she reacted by immediately getting to her feet, pulling her opponent to the ground and punching her multiple times.
The unnamed victim suffered minor injuries but for McCullough who was sent off, it could get a lot more serious as she has been charged with third-degree assault and battery.
Referee Alan Parker said afterwards: “Some incidental contact ended in one girl going down and she just got up and started pummeling. It’s unfortunate, it really is. Contact is a part of soccer, but when you retaliate like that, obviously, there is no place in the game for that.”
