JFL Sunday Scores
Rosso Kumamoto's reign at the top of the JFL lasted a mere 48 hours, as Sagawa Kyubin SC re-took the lead on Sunday thanks to a 1-0 win at TDK SC. Midfielder Gen Nakamura scored the decisive goal early in the second half to clinch the victory for Sagawa - but after a promising start to the year, things seem to be going rapidly downhill for TDK, who now have taken just three points from their last six matches. Tochigi SC also began the season well, but the recent appointment as coach of former Japanese international Koichi Hashiratani hasn't stopped their slide down the rankings. A disastrous defeat at lowly FC Ryukyu means that the J-League hopefuls have now failed to win any of their last nine games and their dreams of promotion are now surely over for another season.

Another team to have got rid of a coach recently are FC Kariya, but like Tochigi the change has not had any immediate impact upon their fortunes. They conceded an eight-minute goal for Alo's Hokuriku by ex-Ehime FC striker Yuuya Nagatomi to remain in the bottom four. The evening fixture was a clash between two in-form teams, but it was no surprise to see YKK AP claim the win over Mitsubishi Mizushima; star defender Yuji Hamano netted the winners just after the hour mark in what was the fourth 1-0 game of the day. YKK close the gap between themselves and FC Gifu to just two points, while Mizushima remain comfortable in mid-table.

Hokushinetsu League Division 1
There are now only two rounds to go in Division 1 of the Hokushinetsu League and the destination of the title is almost as unknown as it was at the start of the season back in early April. Reigning champions Japan Soccer College still hold on to top spot, but their lead is down to a single point thanks to a 1-0 defeat at in-form Zweigen Kanazawa. The other significant scoreline of the day was in the Nagano prefecture derby, in which Matsumoto Yamaga Club gained revenge for a defeat earlier in the year by neighbours AC Nagano Parceiro - for Matsumoto pulled off a stunning 3-0 win that moves them up into second place and at the same time knocks Parceiro down to fourth.

Rather stuck in mid-table in this division are Ishikawa's Fervorosa, who despite some investment during the close season have not quite stengthened enough to be competitive with the top four sides that are battling it out for the championship crown. Nevertheless, they followed last week's remarkable 4-1 defeat of Matsumoto by beating Valiente Toyama and have good reason to believe that next year they can do better. As for Valiente, they are just a point outside the relegation places after a draw between the bottom two sides, Ueda Gentian and Niigata University of Management.

Kyushu League
The three main contenders for the 2007 Kyushu League title all picked up their expected wins on Sunday - but they all found the points a little harder to come by than expected. Current leaders New Wave Kitakyushu beat Kagoshima's Osumi NIFS United just 1-0, Honda Lock went only one better against lowly Kaiho Bank SC and V Varen Nagasaki sensationally trailed 1-0 at half-time against the league's real minnows, the Fukuoka University students of Nanakuma Tombies.

V Varen fought back after the break to squeeze home 3-2, but such a scoreline can hardly have boosted the confidence of the pre-season favourites who currently lie outside the top two - and therefore may well miss out on a vital promotion play-off place. But the league's in-form team are Volca Kagoshima, whose 5-0 thrashing of Okinawa Kariyushi was their sixth consecutive win, although admittedly these have all been against the weaker teams in the region. In the fifth match of the round, Nippon Steel Oita managed only a penalty shoot-out win over Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki after a 1-1 draw.

Kansai League Division 2
With only three games remaining in the Kansai League Division 2 season, Hannan University have made sure of promotion in their first ever Regional League campaign. The students have led the table from the start of the year and confirmed their Division 1 status on Saturday in fine style, with a 10-1 thumping of Hermano Osaka that leaves them eleven points clear of third-placed Kohga School. Takada FC are virtually assured of accomapanying Hannan following their 3-1 defeat of Riseisha FC.

At the other end of the table, Kihoku have had a miserable year, losing every game and are thus relegated to the Prefectural Leagues having been beaten 7-1 by Kohga on Sunday. But the identity of the team to fill seventh position and the relegation play-off spot is very much open to question - and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe did themselves a big favour by pulling off a 2-1 win at Kyoto Shiko Club to move four points clear of Hermano.

JFL Saturday Scores
The three JFL fixtures to be played on Saturday probably had a greater impact upon the bottom of the table than the top, but it was nevertheless a good day for JEF Reserves. Now in their second season in the JFL, the former Kanto League outfit have in the past achieved some respectable results but overall have struggled to maintain any consistency. But this year has seen a real improvement and Saturday's 3-1 defeat of Sony Sendai puts JEF level with YKK AP on the fringes of the title race.

Elsewhere, Yokogawa Musashino managed their first win in four games to move one place behind JEF in sixth. Goals from striker Koji Murayama and midfield man Kenji Nogi gave the Tokyo side a 2-0 win at Sagawa Printing, who remain third bottom. Rooted to the foot of the table, however, are still poor Arte Takasaki, although they came within a whisker of their sixth point of the season. Moving into the dying seconds of their match at Gainare Tottori the scoreline stood at one apiece, only for Keigo Kamada to steal the win for Gainare.
