Wright-Phillips Scores Twice, LAFC Beats Whitecaps 6-0
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored twice to move into fifth place on the MLS career list and Los Angeles beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 6-0 on Wednesday night. Wright-Phillips scored on a spinning right-footed half-volley from the center of the area in the fifth minute and put away a bicycle kick from the top of the 6-yard box in the 11th to give LAFC a 3-0 lead. His second goal gave him 115 in his MLS career, moving him past Ante Razov into fifth. Dejan Jakovic headed home a corner kick by Brian Rodríguez to open the scoring just 1:35 in, the fastest goal in franchise history. Diego Rossi also scored, and Vancouver had two own goals.
