JFL - Round 18 (Sunday)
The game of the day in the JFL on Sunday saw Rosso Kumamoto come from behind to beat erstwhile leaders YKK AP, with a late winner from former Cerezo Osaka striker Daisuke Yoneyama giving the victory to the Kyushu-based outfit. This puts Rosso up to third, the highest-placed non-corporate club in the league, at just the time when they have applied for associate membership of the J-League itself. Tochigi SC are of course hoping to make the same step but could only manage a 0-0 draw at FC Ryukyu to remain in sixth place, while Ryukyu - despite having the best average home crowd of any Japanese non-league side - are now just a point above the relegation play-off places after what has been so far a highly disappointing season. Fighting to avoid the possibility of dropping back to the Regional Leagues are also Mitsubishi Mizushima, who picked up a creditable point at home to leaders Honda FC; Honda Lock, who went down to a single Tetsuya Okubo goal against Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo to slip back down to the foot of the table; and Ryutsu Keizai University, whose 3-0 win over Arte Takasaki not only pushes them out of the bottom two but is without a doubt their result of the season.
