Madden Williams Named Workhorse of the Week

Irvine Rangers club player Madden Williams is the Athlete’s Choice Workhorse of the Week. Only in the fourth grade, Williams is actively involved in both football and lacrosse.

In Sunday’s game versus the SoCal Ghosts, Williams stepped up and was in net for the first half (nine saves, one goal against) and played attack in the second half. He finished the half with two goals, two assists and two ground balls.

Geoff Giglio, the president of the Irvine based club team, believed his team could have lost Sunday if it weren’t for Williams’ ability to play both sides of the ball as effectively as he did.

“We couldn’t have won the championship without him,” Giglio said. “Our goalie, who is a lights out player, is a hockey player and our goalie didn’t show up. I thought we were going to lose the game because SoCal is so good.  We were up 4-1 at halftime because of him. He’s a beast, that’s the best way to put it.”

Williams finished the season second on the team in points with 23 (17 goals, six assists) and recorded 19 ground balls for the champion Rangers.
