Wright-Phillips gets Golden Boot, Red Bulls win the east
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his 24th goal of the season to win the Golden Boot award and the New York Red Bulls beat the Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Sunday to secure the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
New York (16-9-9), which hasn't lost since July 3, finished three points ahead of NYCFC and will have a first-round bye. Philadelphia (11-14-9) is tied for sixth place with New England, but advanced to the playoffs due to goal differential. The Union will face Toronto on the road Thursday night in a knockout game.
Wright-Phillips opened the scoring in the 26th minute when he ran past the defense for Aurelien Collin's through ball and chipped goalkeeper Andre Blake. (MORE)
