Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off Results
And now the last pairing of matches on Sunday...

Final Stage

Fagiano Okayama 1-1 TDK Akita (TDK won 4-3 on pens)
V Varen Nagasaki 1-2 FC Gifu

A second penalty shoot-out win in the Final Stage for TDK Akita means that the surprise outfit from Tohoku finished top of the group and eliminated opponents Fagiano Okayama in Oita on Sunday. TDK took a first-half lead to put themselves in the driving seat against the Chugoku Leaguers and, despite conceding an equaliser after the break, held their nerve to take two points from the subsequent spot-kick tornament. In the second game later on, an injury-time goal from striker Tomoki Ikemoto gave FC Gifu a narrow win over a very disappointing V Varen Nagasaki to confirm the fancied Tokai League side's second-place finish at the expense of Fagiano.

Gifu line up before their crunch match with Nagasaki

1. TDK Akita 7 (+1)
2. FC Gifu 6 (+2)
3. Fagiano Okayama 4 (-)
4. V Varen Nagasaki 1 (-3)

All of which means that TDK Akita are promoted directly to the JFL, while FC Gifu take on JFL bottom-place side Honda Lock in a promotion / relegation play-off over two legs on 17 and 24 December. Fagiano and V Varen simply revert to their own Regional Leagues for 2007, when the Tohoku, Tokai and Chugoku competitions will receive an allocation of two places in the Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off.

Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off Results
Results now from Saturday's matches...

Final Stage

FC Gifu 2-0 Fagiano Okayama
TDK Akita 0-0 V Varen Nagasaki (TDK won 7-6 on pens)

Rank outsiders TDK Akita took a huge stride towards promotion to the JFL on Saturday, beating V Varen Nagasaki 7-6 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in Oita, to add two more points to the three from their Friday victory over FC Gifu. Gifu themselves are back in contention, as they beat Fagiano Okayama 2-0 to go second on goal difference.

But it's still all to play for, as even the northerners of TDK can be squeezed out of a top two finish if the results on Sunday go against them: a defeat at the hands of Fagiano combined with Gifu beating V Varen will see TDK slip back to third. Try not to bite those nails too much...
