LA Galaxy II’s season is in the books, but there was still news for the club this week, as forward Augustine Williams was named USL Championship Player of the Month for September and October 2020.
Williams scored an astonishing seven goals in eight games in the final month of the regular season, taking him to second in the league on the season in scoring with 13 goals overall. The only single season in Los Dos’ history with more goals scored by a player was Jack McBean’s 15 goals in 2016. Williams’ good play also helped the team, as they clinched a playoff berth in a very competitive Group B.
Williams got 45% of the weighted vote in the Player of the Month honors, getting the bulk of his support from the fan vote.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed in making this happen. I couldn’t have done with without My Teammates, the fans and everyone who voted, thank you once again. All Glory to the most high pic.twitter.com/TkxTzMy3Cn— Augustine Williams (@augiwilliams) October 15, 2020
It’s a worthy award for Williams, in his second season with Los Dos. The Sierra Leone-born California-raised forward is one of several players on Galaxy II coming off fantastic seasons, and a few may be pushing for an MLS opportunity in the future. Williams is 23, and with the Galaxy first team starved for goals and in a tailspin at the moment, perhaps they could call him up on a flyer? You never know. At any rate, congrats to Augustine on the award.
