Bradley Wright-Phillips ties New York Red Bulls' all-time, all-competitions scoring record

BWP has made RBNY history. Again.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored in the 20th minute of the New York Red Bulls' July 24 game against NYCFC...

...and he scored again in the 70th minute.

Those two goals lifted RBNY to a 4-1 win over NYCFC. And they lifted BWP to 11 goals for the Red Bulls in 2016 (all in MLS, incidentally). And they lifted New York's #99's all-time, all-competitions career total for RBNY to 62 - equaling Juan Pablo Angel's club record.

Fittingly, perhaps, the landmark arrived in Wright-Phillips' 100th competitive start for RBNY. Per MetroFanatic.com's statistics archive, BWP is just the 17th player in club history to start 100 matches for the first team (in all competitions), and just the second to score 62 goals.

Congrats, BWP!
