Benecke (Hol)

 

So, with 42 games under our belts we had just one more to go to decide the winners of the 2016 Amsterdam Fives. We had a great final in store and a fantastic crowd assembled by Pitch B to watch the game and see who would be crowned champions.

The Final would be contested by Benecke of the Netherlands and Spain United. It promised to be a monumental tussle let's have a look at the teams.

Benecke: Played 6, won 5, drawn 1 and 1 successful penalty shoot-out. They had scored 32 goals, conceded 8 and boasted the tournament's top goalscorer with 12 goals Dylan George.

Spain United: Played 6, won 6 with 19 goals scored and just 4 conceded. They had the most clean sheets in the tournament but their first choice goalkeeper had gone home injured.

With the game underway it was Benecke who made the early running and it was they who took the lead through Imad Isco. Benecke then hit the post and momentum was truly with them but it remained only 1-0. On the stroke of half-time Dylan George fired in to make it 2-0 and that could well be the killer goal.

 
 
 

Spain United were not going to lie down though and at the start of the second half Manuel Doncel reduced the deficit to 2-1 and it was game on again. Dylan George scored his second of the Cup Final to make it 3-1 and Benecke had the luxury of a two goal cushion again. When Dylan George completed his hat-trick to make it 4-1 it was fair to say that Benecke were going to be the champions.

The goal took Dylan George to 15 goals and he would be crowned as the top goal-scorer in the tournament so many congratulations to him.

The scoring was not over though as Fahd Ramdhani made it 5-1 to Benecke but Spain United would have the final word as Manuel Doncel, with his 8th of the tournament, made the final score 5-2 to Benecke.

It was all over. There was a massive release of pressure as Benecke were jubilant in celebration. They had won it huge congratulations to them. There was not much doubt they were worthy winners and deserved to be called the 2016 Amsterdam Fives champions.

Our commiserations to Spain United who had made it a superb Cup Final and had been a great asset to the tournament throughout the day.

We send our congratulations to all the teams who participated in what was a great day's competition. The tournament had everything we hoped it would (and more). We look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
