Orlando City forward Cyle Larin breaks record for most goals scored in a season by an MLS rookie

Orlando City forward Cyle Larin is now venturing into uncharted territory.

The No. 1 selection in January's MLS SuperDraft, Larin scored his 12th goal of the season in league play on Friday in the Lions' regular season clash against the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena. His header off a Kaká corner kick came in the 24th minute to give Orlando City the lead.

Larin is now alone in first place for goals scored in a season by an MLS rookie, besting Damani Ralph's mark from 2003, and has three games left in the season to add to that tally.
