Week 10 in Major League Soccer was all about the Hudson River derby, and it lived up to expectations, but there plenty of other games worth watching over the weekend.
Thirty goals were scored across 11 games, and Orlando City extended its winning streak to six games.
In addition to Bradley Wright-Phillips scoring yet again against the biggest rival of the New York Red Bulls, a few of the league’s top scorers produced standout performances.
Below is a look at who stood out the most in the eyes of SBI’s editorial staff.
