Orlando’s Cyle Larin Sets MLS Rookie Scoring Record

LarinCyle Larin set a new Major League Soccer rookie scoring record as his second hat-trick of the season lead expansion side Orlando City to a 5-2 win over New York Red Bulls.

His 14 goals top the previous record of 11 goals set in 2003 by the Chicago Fire’s Damani Ralph.

“Everytime I come (to New York) I feel good and things seem to open up for me,” Larin said after the match. “It felt really good to break the record and score the hat-trick.”

In July, Larin also netted a hat-trick in Orlando’s 5-3 loss to New York City FC at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx.
