If you watch the most serious infractions carefully, she's merely reacting to the subtle little offenses the other women are committing.
Take the punch to the back of the blonde. Blondie gave her an elbow to the chest first.
And the brunette was clearly yanking up Elizabeth's shorts. The other brunette is shielding the ball with her body and Liz simply goes for the ball.
Don't you worry Lizzie, your boy's got your back!
Dude, you're actually right. I totally didn't see that the first time. Being a ref is a tough job. It's so much easier to catch retaliation in sports, since it is almost always less subtle than the initial violation.
If it's hard to see the BYU (blue and white jerseys) cheating that took place on camera, just imagine what the BYU players might have done to poor Lizzie off of camera!
