My daughter had practice for the older of the two teams that she plays with on Thursday evening. (She was born in 2007, this is a mostly 2006 team.) At one point she was battling a much bigger 2005 girl for the ball during a scrimmage. She didn't come out with it, but her coach watched her fighting and said to her, "You really are ferocious, aren't you??"
We jokingly call her our little savage. His comment made me laugh!!
