MLS: New York Red Bulls 3-1 Montreal Impact

  • 21′ – MTL – Ignacio Piatti (Matteo Mancosu, Marco Donadel)
  • 22′ – NY – Bradley Wright-Phillips (Sacha Kljestan, Sean Davis)
  • 41′ – NY – Bradley Wright-Phillips (Sean Davis)
  • 46′ – NY – Sean Davis (Mike Grella)

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his 58th and 59th regular-season goals as a member of the Red Bulls, passing club legend Juan Pablo Angel to become the Red Bulls’ all-time leading goalscorer in the regular season.

Coach Denis Hamlett reacts:

“Brad’s a great guy. Couldn’t have happened it a better guy. I think tonight he was just clinical with his chances. When he’s in front of the goal and he has those looks, you can pretty much bet he’s going to finish them, so real happy for him.

I think the conditions were extreme. And we talked about in halftime, just make sure that we keep our cool and try to keep playing and stick to our game plan. I felt obviously with us getting that third goal, I think the frustration came in on their part. And obviously with the red card, they probably felt it wasn’t a red card, and so now that even adds more to it. They had some guys, the history with Felipe, obviously played there with them.

But look, our guys kept their cool. We have a good group of guys that understand that they don’t cross the line. So they step on the field and they’re ready to compete”.
