Sierra Leone International Augustine Willaims scored his tenth of the season across all competitions as Charleston Battery triumphed over Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC in a thrilling 3-1 victory at Patriots Point on Saturday.

The Battery started brilliantly as they looked to apply heavy pressure against the USL Championship’s top team early on.

The high press paid off in the 11th minute when Juan Sebastian Palma’s perfectly-placed header off Fidel Barajas’ corner kick found the back of the net.

Augi Williams scored his goal in stoppage time before halftime to put the Battery ahead, 2-0. The Battery added to their lead moments later when Beto Avila was Johnny-on-the-spot to put away a cool and collected finish to make the score 3-0. Avila collected the rebound on Williams’ saved shot in the 56th-minutes.

The Battery’s next outing is against Birmingham Legion FC on Sat., July 29. Charleston then returns to Patriots Point on Fri., Aug 4, to take on Oakland Roots SC
