Freshman Hayley Williams may have worked her way into 12-straight starts and played well enough to rank second in minutes played for the first place Rice Owls soccer team, but outstanding performance on the field does not always guarantee the same results when facing the daunting challenge of the Just For Kicks questions. OK, so this time it did with the rookie defender, but be aware it's not always the case!
