New York Red Bulls II claim 2016 USL regular season title

New York Red Bulls II claimed the USL regular season title on Wednesday night, beating the Harrisburg City Islanders 4-1 to clinch the honor with three games to spare.

The win, which was New York’s seventh in a row, moved Red Bulls II to an impressive 19-3-5 on the year Louisville City FC could tie NYRBII with 62 points this season, but the Kentucky club can only reach 18 victories this year, leaving Red Bulls II as the regular season champion with control over the first tiebreaker.

In addition to claiming the league’s regular season title in their second season of existence, Red Bulls II, coached by former MLS player John Wolyniec (pictured above), have already claimed some USL records and are nearing others. They’re just one point away from setting the league record for points in a season, and need only three goals in their final three games to break the USL mark for goals.

The team already holds the USL record for road wins in a season and will look to become the third side in league history to win both the regular season and USL championship following the conclusion of the regular season on Sept. 25.
