With the team’s top three goaltenders unavailable, Williams stepped up to fill the role and lead the Cadets to a pair of victories on consecutive nights. A 6-foot-2, 174-pound sophomore, Williams had never played a game at goalie at any level but made eight saves in a 10-1 win over Lafayette and then shut out Kirkwood, stopping all 14 shots he faced, in a 7-0 victory. On Monday, Williams, who is normally a defenseman, showed more versatility by playing forward in a 6-3 win over Chaminade. Williams learned to play goalie by facing shots from his brother, who is currently a goalie in the United States Hockey League.
