Favaro, who hails from Vancouver, comes from Thompson Rivers Wolfpack, a college team.

Knights were far too strong for Olympia last night, winning 7-2.

Both Knights and Olympia have the weekend off because of the cup finals scheduled for Saturday and Monday.

Very surprised knights didn’t get a quality striker as that’s what they really need.
