New York Red Bulls Bradley Wright-Phillips has scored more MLS regular season goals in three years than anyone

Finally, BWP has a league scoring record entirely to himself.

Bradley Wright-Phillips confirmed his status among the elite class of goal scorers in MLS with a goal in the 54th minute of the New York Red Bulls match against D.C. United on September 11.

It was RBNY's second of the game, BWP's 18th of the season (and the fifth consecutive league game in which he has scored) and the striker's 69th goal in all competitions since joining the Red Bulls in 2012.

More importantly, it was his 62nd second regular-season goal of the last three seasons. And that is a new MLS record.

BWP already has a share of the MLS single-season (regular season) scoring record (27). And he has a share of the league's record for goal in back-to-back regular seasons (44).

Now he is the sole owner of the all-time record for league goals scored in three consecutive years.

Congrats, BWP. And thanks for sticking around long enough to make one of those MLS scoring records you like so much your own.
