Attack.MacArthur-regBy Tracey Richardson

In a weekend where the Attack split its two home games, two trades made last week paid immediate dividends in Saturday's game, with overage centre Erik Bradford scoring the Attack's first goal in the 4-1 victory over the Belleville Bulls.

The Attack fell to the Sarnia Sting 2-1 Sunday.

The 20-year-old Bradford was acquired from the Ottawa 67s last Thursday for two future draft picks. Winger Liam Dunda, a six-foot-four 17-year-old, arrived from the Plymouth Whalers for a couple of draft picks as well.

"I thought the new guys brought good energy," Attack coach Greg Ireland said after Saturday's game. "Bradford's speed certainly drove the D back, he did a good job with his line and certainly was good on the penalty kill. Dunda is a north-south guy, gets pucks underneath, and (he's good) on the forecheck, very responsible. I think they fit in very well with our group."
