association with eurofootballfives.com in July
last year. They appeared in the 2016 Amsterdam
Fives and made an impressive debut. They secured
3 wins and 9 points from their group fixtures
as they finished 2nd in Group A. They qualified
for the prestigious Cup competition and claimed
the scalp of Spider Man 1s in the Quarter-Finals
with a 1-0 victory. They were up against a very

the game all the way to penalties after a 2-2
draw in normal time. Benecke went on to win
the shoot-out and the tournament as a whole.
