HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his third hat trick of the season to help the New York Red Bulls beat the Seattle Sounders 4-1 on Saturday night.

Wright-Phillips leads the MLS Golden Boot standings with 24 goals and has five regular-season games left to break the MLS record of 27 held by Roy Lassiter and Chris Wondolowski.

Wright-Phillips scored in the opening minute for New York (10-8-11). Ambroise Oyongo Bitolo's shot was blocked, but Wright-Phillips was there to clean it up at the 29-second mark. Lloyd Sam was tripped on his way to goal in the 53rd minute and Wright-Phillips converted the ensuing penalty kick. Less than two minutes later, Wright-Phillips sent home a cross. He was replaced by Tom Cahill in the 58th, and Cahill scored 7 minutes later

Clint Dempsey entered the game in the 60th minute and scored 2 minutes later for Seattle (17-8-3).
