DALLAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One team of pigskin-playing females may be ladies on the street, but they’re animals on the field.

The Women’s Football Alliance is a football league for women, and this Saturday (Jul. 31) the gridiron girls from the Lonestar Mustangs will play against the Columbus Comets in Las Vegas – and it won’t be pretty.

Mustangs owner LynMarie Liberty-Ellington says her ladies range from age 18 to 47 and come in all shapes in sizes. Once their helmets are on, her pigskin princesses are just as fierce as any man.

In fact, they can be downright mean.

Liberty-Ellington explains, “It’s full contact, full tackle and they’re tough. They don’t hold back just because they’re women. They might be worse than men with the smack talk. It can get pretty brutal and nasty.”

She thinks women’s natural competitiveness – especially with other ladies – has a lot to do with the claws coming out.
