Chugoku League
By drawing their single game in hand over Chugoku League leaders Fagiano Okayama on Sunday, despite a win in the subsequent penalty shoot-out Sagawa Kyubin Chugoku probably waved goodbye to their hopes of holding on to their title from 2005. Visitors Renofa Yamaguchi took the lead with only ten minutes to go and it was only a desperate push from Sagawa that grabbed an equaliser; Renofa, meanwhile, will be taking great heart from what so far has been a positive season for the former whipping boys. In the other match, postponed from the end of May, Hiroshima Fujita SC scraped a win on penalties over bottom side Iwami SC to earn two potentially vital points in their fight to avoid relegation and so move above Hitachi Manufacturing Kasado.
