Harrison, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) -
Bradley Wright-Phillips bagged a hat trick on Saturday as the New York Red Bulls rolled to a 4-1 victory over Seattle Sounders FC at Red Bull Arena.
Wright-Phillips opened the scoring after just 30 seconds, converted a penalty kick in the 54th minute and finished the treble with a spectacular individual effort. Tim Cahill added a fourth goal for New York, which jumped to 41 points on the season.
Coming off their fourth U.S. Open Cup title win in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Seattle rested many regulars, but collected a goal from Clint Dempsey, who came on as a substitute. The result matters little to Seattle however, as the club has already clinched a playoff berth.
