Veteran rewarded after milestone night.

Fresh off a brace that was oh so close to a hat trick, Los Angeles Football Club forward Bradley Wright-Phillips has been voted MLS Player of the Week for Week 13 of the 2020 MLS regular season on Thursday.

Wright-Phillips scored two goals in five minutes Wednesday in LAFC’s rousing 6-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps, and he was on the doorstep for a third goal three minutes later, only for a Whitecaps player to score an own goal ahead of him.

Let it be known his goals were both audacious acrobatic finishes, too.

The 35-year-old, in his first year with LAFC, now has seven goals in 11 regular-season appearances this season, currently fifth in MLS and second on the team behind only Diego Rossi’s 11 goals. Wednesday’s brace also helped BWP leapfrog his current assistant coach at LAFC, Ante Razov, for 6th place in the MLS all-time scoring charts, now on 115 goals in his career in the league.

It was a tidy win for LAFC and a good night for BWP, too. Congrats to Bradley and let’s see more accolades in the weeks and months ahead.
