St. Catharines, Ont. â€“ Niagaraâ€™s Pro Lacrosse team made their first trade today acquiring two players from the Brampton Inferno. St Catharines resident Brad Favero and Brock University Student-Athlete Dustin Dunn come to Niagara for Ryan Campbell and Jordan Coffey.
â€œBrad is a high quality individual and a great playerâ€ said Niagara General Manager/Coach Jeff Dowling.
â€œHe was tied for the league in goals scored and was tied for first on his team for points last season in Clax. We know that we are getting a player with skill and character.â€
Favero played his minor in St Catharines before being acquired by the Burlington Chiefs JR A team. Brad played 3 years with Burlington before returning home to play for the Spartan JR B squad in his last year of Junior Lacrosse.
Favero won a SR B Presidents Cup in 2006 with the Wellington Aces and has been a leader on the St. Catharines Saints SR B Squad the last two seasons.
Dunn played his minor and JR A lacrosse in Peterborough, winning a Minto Cup in 2006. Dunn played Major last season in Nanaimo. With the Brock Badgers, Dunn has been a steady performer currently sitting 4thon the first place team in points and goals.
â€œDustin is a very athletic player.â€ said Niagara co-coach Jeremy Tallevi. â€œWhen we (Western) play Brock, he is one of the guys we talk about before the game. Iâ€™ll be happy when the Clax season starts and I can have Dustin playing for me instead of against me.â€
