Shikoku League - Round 2
The Shikoku League is rapidly shaping up to be one of the most interesting of all the Regional level competitions and, just two rounds in, reigning champions Nangoku Kochi's grip on the title is already looking a little shaky. A week ago, they scraped home against newcomers Tokushima Vortis Amateurs and on Sunday - derby day across Shikoku - they were on the verge of a shock home defeat at the hands of local rivals Sanwa Club until a late goal salvaged a 1-1 draw. At the same time, Ehime Shimanami were coasting home 6-0 against Ventana AC to go top of the table on maximum points. There they're joined by Kagawa prefecture's new hopefuls Kamatamare Sanuki, 4-1 winners over Alex SC in front of a first-ever home crowd estimated at between 300 and 400; and by 2005's shock runners up, Sanyo Electric Tokushima, who asserted themselves as local top dogs with a 4-1 win of their own, over Tokushima Vortis Amateur.
