Soccer's Chris Williams Named America East Rookie of the Week
Freshman fullback Chris Williams (Baltimore, Md./Calvert Hall) was named America East Conference Men’s Soccer Rookie of the Week for the week ending Oct. 20. He is the second Retriever to receive the award in the last three weeks, as forward B.J. Quigley was honored on Oct. 8.
As a freshman, Williams has started all 14 games on the UMBC back line and the Retrievers have posted nine shutouts to date. On Saturday vs. Albany, he added offense as he scored the game-winning goal in the 22nd minute in a 2-0 win over Albany. Williams’ first career goal was scored on a header off Bryan Moffa’s corner kick. The six-foot-four Williams and his teammates did not allow a goal in 200 minutes of action last week.
