Bradley Wright-Phillips becomes Red Bulls' leading scorer in win over Impact

Bradley Wright-Phillips became the New York Red Bulls' all-time leading scorer in MLS with two goals in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Montreal Impact.

Montreal took the lead in the 22nd minute when Matteo Mancosu turned Red Bulls defender Ronald Zubar and passed for Ignacio Piatti to tap home.

But the lead lasted less than a minute as Sacha Kljestan found Wright-Phillips with a through ball, and the ball trickled over the line after Impact defenders converged on the Red Bulls striker.

Wright-Phillips then passed Juan Pablo Angel with his 59th MLS regular-season goal for the club with his second on the night, a header from a Sean Davis' crossfour minutes before the break.

Davis then scored himself within 20 seconds of the start of the second half, and the game was out of reach for Montreal when three minutes later Ambroise Oyongo was sent off for a hard challenge on Davis.

The Red Bulls stayed in second place in the East behind NYCFC, while Montreal fell to fifth.
