JFL Sunday Scores
While JFL leaders Sagawa Kyubin SC had their Sunday match against Tochigi SC postponed due to bad weather, second place side Rosso Kumamoto had to make do with a draw at fellow promotional hopefuls FC Gifu. Ex-Arte Takasaki midfielder Kiyoshi Saito gave Rosso the lead on 20 minutes only for the home side's Hiromi Kojima to level things up just before half time.

And Gifu drop back to fourth place, overtaken by a YKK AP side who strolled to a 5-1 win over Yokogawa Musashino. Star defender Yuki Hamano was twice on target for YKK, but Yokogawa have picked up just a single point from their last four games and are slipping down the table. Also experiencing rather uncertain form at present are TDK SC and their game with Sony Sendai highlighted their current jittery form.

Forward Go Togashi put the Akita-based side two up with just fifteen minutes remaining, but Sony quickly pulled themselves back into the match and goals in the dying seconds from Yosuke Nishi and key forward Junpei Murata clinched a remarkable comeback victory. This kept TDK in the bottom six, where FC Kariya managed a rare win thanks to another last-minute goal from Tomohiro Ito at fellow strugglers FC Ryukyu.
