Kyushu League - Round 3 (Sunday)
After Volca Kagoshima's win on Saturday, Nippon Steel Oita joined them at the top of the table on Sunday with a 2-0 win over minnows Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki - but most ominously for the early season pacesetters, V Varen Nagasaki crushed Osumi NIFS United 6-0 in a match attended by 7164 local fans and are three points behind with a game in hand. New Wave Kitakyushu remain in touch, as they beat the Okinawans of Kaiho Bank SC 4-0.

Kanto League Round 1 - Sunday Scores
The first round of the Kanto League season in both Divisions 1 and 2 was completed in stunning style on Sunday, with reigning Division 1 champions Luminozo Sayama crashing 3-2 at home to newly-promoted Toshiba Fuchu. Hanno Bruder, who like Fuchu were also playing Division 2 football last year, conceded a late goal at Saitama SC to draw 2-2 on their top flight debut.

Early indications are that Division 2 for 2006 will be dominated by the 2005 Tokyo Prefectural League winners, FC Machida Zelvia. The fixture list had given them one of the toughest possible matches for their first game at Regional level - away at Hitachi Tochigi Uva - but they were 4-0 up at half time and added one more after the interval just to make sure. Nirasaki Astros overcame one of last season's weaker sides, Furukawa Electrics Chiba, while new boys All Kamisu SC managed a draw at Aries FC.

Hokushinetsu League Round 2 Results
The Hokushinetsu League Division 1 title race - in recent seasons one of the tightest of all the Regional Leagues - has hotted up from the word Go following the completion of the round 2 fixtures on Sunday. Three clubs maintain a 100% record, with ambitious Zweigen Kanazawa top thanks to a stunning goal difference of +14 - for indeed, they followed up last weekend's 7-0 thrashing of Ueda Gentian with an identical scoreline against the luckless Teihens SC. Taro Sugahara, formerly with Kashiwa Reysol, Vissel Kobe, Sagan Tosu and most recently Ehime FC, notched up a further two goals to add to his brace last weekend to go top of the scorers' chart. Hot on Zweigen's heels are Japan Soccer College - 2-0 winners at Ueda - and, fascinatingly, promoted outfit Matsumoto Yamaga Club, who coasted to a 3-0 win over Fervorosa. Next week sees scheduled an early crunch match, in which Zweigen take on Matsumoto.

In Division 2, last season's Fukui Prefectural League champions Maruoka Phoenix move to the top of the table following their 2-1 win over FC Antelope and as such are the only team to have won both their fixtures. FC Kanazu picked up a good win against surprise strugglers Toyama Shinjo Club to go second, level on points with Shinjo's local rivals Valiente Toyama, who themselves beat Nissei Resin 2-1. In the other match, LionPower Komatsu shared a goalless draw with TOP Niigata.
