(KSTU) - The ramifications of an incident at a girls high school soccer game in Utah two weeks ago are still being felt.

A video captured the moment when an East High soccer player kneed a Woods Cross player in the face.

East High’s principal reviewed the video and talked with the player and says the player admitted to her actions, adding that she got carried away during the heated game.

The teen also said she was out of line and will apologize to the Wood’s Cross player.

East High soccer Coach Rudy Schenk said the action was completely out of character for the player, but he wishes he had known more about the incident earlier so that more could have been done.
