MLS: BWP breaks one record, Wondo extends another

Bradley Wright-Phillips broke one MLS scoring record he shared with Chris Wondolowski, and Wondo extended another record as both players scored in MLS games over the weekend. With six weeks left in the regular season, another record could be broken.

Wright-Phillips reclaimed the season lead with his 18th goal for the New York Red Bulls in their 2-2 tie with D.C. United, giving him 62 goals over the last three seasons, one more than Wondolowski's 61 in 2010-12.
