Wright-Phillips, 3 ahead of Dwyer in Golden Boot race, aims for MLS season record


Striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, the first Red Bull to crack the 20-goal barrier in a Major League Soccer season, still isn't finished with his scoring exploits, especially with nine games remaining in the team's regualr season.

Wright-Phillips scored two goals in a 4-2 victory over the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena Aug. 23 in a 4-2 win. His 19th and 20th goals of the season moved him past Juan Pablo Angel as the team's all-time leading season goal-scorer.

Only 13 players have scored 20 or more goals in a season. No player has accomplished the feat more than once.
