This is worrisome. It suggests that the muscles deep in the leg are swelling to the point they cut down blood flow to the leg/foot. I would have her seen by a sports medicine doc or orthopedic surgeon. If it happens again & she is in pain take her to the ER during the event & ask them to arrange for ortho to see her.
