The Dragons, who were playing Ibaraki Prefectural League football just a year ago, beat Kanagawa Teachers 5-0 to remain on top of the table, while the sailors from Atsugi overcame relegation-threatened Yamanashi outfit Nirasaki Astros. This means that there is an eight-point gap between MSDF in second and third-placed Furukawa Electrics Chiba, 3-1 winners over Hanno Bruder. Ome FC really could have done with a win in their battle to avoid the drop, but only managed to draw 2-2 at Yonoshukonkai.
