Kansai League Division 2
It was business as usual in Division 2 of the Kansai League in round 4, with the fixtures spread over Saturday and Sunday. Saturday coincidentally saw the two top sides extend their leads, as Hannan University beat Hermano Osaka, while Takada FC won at struggling Osaka side Riseisha FC. Both now have four wins out of four and are moving dangerously away from the rest of the field.

In third spot now are Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe, who shared a 1-1 draw with Kyoto Shiko Club. But Kihoku Football Group remain rooted to the bottom of the table and indeed have yet to score a single point all year. Their latest defeat came at the hands of Kohga School, who leapfrog Riseisha to move out of the danger zone.

Kansai League Division 1
Grasping with both hands the opportunity presented to them by last week's shock loss by Banditonce Kobe, FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu have gone full steam ahead at the top of the Kansai League Division 1. The Shiga prefecture outfit thrashed Sanyo Electric Sumoto 8-1 to make it four wins out of four from the start of the season and a goal difference of +20 makes them difficult indeed for anyone to catch them.

Banditonce stay second, bouncing back to beat AS Laranja Kyoto 5-1, but they lead surprise package FC Kyoto 1993 only on goal difference. Kyoto, promoted back from Division 2 at the end of 2006, put four without reply past Kobe FC 1970 to keep up their outside hope of a top two finish. At the bottom of the division, FC Glaspo Kashiwara picked up their first point of the year in a 1-1 draw at mid-table Ain Food.

JFL Sunday Scores
JEF Reserves and Mitsubishi Mizushima have a midweek game on Wednesday to look forward to, but otherwise Sunday staged a full programme of JFL fixtures. And Sagawa Kyubin SC held on to top spot with a 4-2 win over bottom side Sony Sendai, Kento Hori scoring his fourth and fifth goals of the season for Sagawa. Rosso Kumamoto would appear well and truly to have bounced back from their losing spell of a few rounds ago and pulled off an excellent 2-0 triumph at Tochigi SC thanks to a goal late in each half.

Dropping back to third are FC Gifu, who drew at Yokogawa Musashino despite taking a first minute lead through Brazilian striker Jorginho, while YKK AP also failed to keep up the pace at the top, going down by the odd goal in three to Toyama prefecture rivals Alo's Hokuriku. The other top half team to take three points were 2006 champions Honda FC, 1-0 winners over an Arte Takasaki side that have found the net just twice in ten matches so far this season.

Closer towards the bottom of the table, Sagawa Printing gained a vital win at FC Ryukyu to climb towards safety thanks to Shintaro Hirai's score thirteen minutes from time. Sagawa are followed up the division by FC Kariya, who came from behind to grab a 3-2 win over Ryutsu Keizai University. But Gainare Tottori are still unable to turn draws into wins - essentially the same problem they had last year - and continue to struggle with a 1-1 tie at home to TDK SC.
