Sierra Leone International Augustine Williams scored sixth of the USL Championship season to help Charleston Battery earn a point against the Tampa Bay Rowdies on Saturday.
Williams, 24, once again was on the scoresheet as they came from behind to share spoils 1-1 at Al Lang Stadium.
Tampa Bay scored through Leonardo Fernandes in the first half, but Charleston drew parity from Williams’ 63rd-minute close-range.
The Battery secured their first point against the Rowdies since 2020 in what was a continuation of strong performances for the Black and Yellow.
Williams was pleased with the result as he commended the squad for their development, as shown in their performance against Tampa Bay on the road.
“To come here against one of the best teams in the league and earn a point – it’s an amazing feeling because of how much we were grinding,” said Williams. “It’s a big step forward and it was excellent collective work.”
