On Monday 21st July 2008, Sydney Benfica Futsal Club 1st Grade Men?s were crowned State League Minor Premiers for the first time. In what proved to be a tough and close competition, only three points separated 1st and 4th spot.
Throughout this competition, Benfica proved to be the best and most consistent team displaying flair and magic, which often mesmerised opposition teams and at times, themselves.
Next week they will take on the might of Campbelltown Quake in what will prove to be a memorable semi final, with the winner backing up later that evening in the final.
Whilst the boys are not getting carried away with things, their captain Marcelo De Andrade and Itaua Batista stated that the ?competition starts now?.
Sydney Benfica Futsal Club would like to thank their sponsors Wideform, Radio Rentals and Marrickville Tennis Club for their continued support.
