JFL - Saturday Scores
It's back up to the top of the JFL table - at least until Sunday - for Sagawa Kyubin SC, following their comfortable enough 2-0 win away at FC Kariya. Once again Sagawa's goal heroes were big striker Sho Gokyu and midfielder Shogo Shimada, the latter of whom notched his fifth goal in four games to make it 2-0 just before half time. Poor old Kariya, meanwhile, have yet to pick up so much as a point from six matches and coach Nariyasu Yasuhara must surely be living on borrowed time.

Indeed, the Aichi club sink to the bottom of the league as a result of their defeat and a first win of 2007 for Sagawa Printing, 1-0 winners over TDK SC thanks to a Shinobu Yusa goal. But continuing their excellent start to the season are Yokogawa Musashino, now third after they defeated an Arte Takasaki side who have now scored only once all year. On target with the score goal of the game for unbeaten Yokogawa was Kosuke Ota - like Sho Gokyu, formerly on the books at J2 outfit Thespa Kusatsu.
