PITTSBURGH, PA – Freshman Mario Williams was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Offensive Player of the Week. Williams scored two goals and assisted on three other scores for Hilbert as they split the two games played during the week of September 24 – 30. This is the first Hilbert men’s soccer player recognized by the league office this 2012 season.

In the Hawks 2-1 loss to league-leader Medaille College, Williams delivered the ball to Matt Saxton who scored in the 75th minute of the well-played league contest. Several days later, in a road contest at Pitt-Greensburg, Williams assisted in the Hawks’ first score and last score of the day while sandwiching his two personal tallies (just two minutes and seven seconds apart) in the middle. He led the Hawks with six shots and earned six points in the 6-4 important AMCC win.

In the conference standings, Williams 1.80 points per game places him in a tie for 3rd place, and is tied for 4th place in goals per game (.60).
