Tokai League Division 1 - Round 6
The race for the title in Division 1 of the Tokai League shows no sign of slowing down after the round 6 fixtures on Sunday, as leaders and reigning champions Shizuoka FC came away from their match at Yazaki Valente with a 2-0 win. But the gap between Shizuoka and FC Gifu is down to Shizuoka's marginally better goal difference, following Gifu's 4-0 triumph over last place ACM Central. The other six teams trai in the wake of the leading pair, Sagawa Kyubin Chukyo's 2-1 win over Maruyasu Industry placing them third, some seven points off the pace.

Tohoku League Division 2 (North) - Rounds 5 & 6
FC Akita Cambiare continue their march at the top of the Tohoku League Division 2 (North), with a 5-0 win over shock strugglers Aster Aomori - which continues their 100% record from the start of the season. Their nearest challengers, having played twice over the last couple of weeks, are Mizusawa United Club, although Tono Club have games in hand and look set to provide some sort of threat to Cambiare's dominance. Newly promoted side Fuji Club 2003 achieved their first point in Regional League football at the third attempt, when they picked up a draw at fellow newcomers Vanrarure Hachinohe.

Hokushinetsu League Division 2 - Round 9
The topsy turvy nature of the Hoksuhinetsu League Division 2 continued to manifest itself in round 9 on Sunday, as new leaders Maruoka Phoenix succumbed to a 1-0 defeat by relegation-threatened Toyama Shinjo Club to be knocked off top spot. Taking over from them are the inconsistent but dangerous Valiente Toyama, 3-0 winners at LionPower Komatsu, but TOP Niigata are also in with a shout despite only drawing 1-1 at bottom placed Nissei Resin. FC Kanazu managed a first win in six to overhaul FC Antelope and move into the top half of the table.
