is it possible that her male teammates will get in your face? yes but just tell them that you're trying to treat her like everybody else. some guys can't help but come to a woman's "rescue" because it's how they were raised.
I tell all of my male teammates to let me defend myself. it's not worth a 3rd man in and automatic game suspension.
Yeah this, I remember lining a U18 game where a girl got hit (cleanly) and a fight broke out, during which one of the male teammates headbutted the guy who hit the girl. He was banned for the rest of the season.
