Sierra Leone striker Augustine Williams has continued with his brilliant start to the season after he recorded his third of the season in Charleston Battery‘s 3-2 victory over Hartford Athletic in the USL championship on Sunday.

Williams, 25, has continued where he left off last season. He led Charleston’s offence with his most prolific scoring mark, bagging a career-high 16 goals across 32 matches. Williams also registered three assists, 21 chances created, and 116 duels won during the campaign.

Nick Markanich and Augi Williams provided earlier goals for the Battery, but Hartford kept pace until the end.

After the visitor’s equaliser through Conor McGlynn in the 60th minute, Battery was dealt a blow when they were reduced to 10 men following Dante Polvara’s sending-off in the 76th minute.

The visitors thought they had the lead a moment later, but Kye Edwards’ goal was chalked off for offside. 

Both teams continued to work hard for the match-winning goal as the game wore on.

10-man Battery defeated Hartford Athletic 3-2 on Saturday at Patriots Point thanks to late-game heroics from Arturo Rodriguez’s stoppage-time goal.

The victory means Charleston Battery’s extended their early unbeaten run to five games in 2023 across all competitions.
