Memphis, Tenn. – Memphis 901 FC used Phillip Goodrum’s 20th goal of the season to earn three points in a 2-1 victory over New York Red Bulls II on Sunday at AutoZone Park.
The USL Championship Player of the Month nominee for September scored in the 87th minute to tie the club record for goals in a single season and give 901 FC the win in their final home match of the regular season.
New York struck first after Stiven Plaze found himself one-on-one with Trey Muse on a run into the box and pushed the ball past the keeper to go up 1-0 in the 13th minute.
Memphis would answer in the 21st minute, however, after Phillip Goodrum charged in on a run and was fouled by the New York keeper inside the box. Aaron Molloy would step up to the spot and put away the penalty for his seventh goal of the season.
901 FC continued to provide attacking pressure throughout the second half dominating possession and recording 12 shots while limiting the Red Bulls to only one. The pressure resulted in Jeremy Kelly finding Goodrum just in front of the goal for the tip in.
Memphis moved to 20-8-5 on the season with the win and sit at second in the Eastern Conference standings with the regular season finale approaching.
Memphis 901 will wrap up the 2022 regular season on the road as they’ll travel to face FC Tulsa on Saturday, October 15 with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. CT.
