JFL - Round 19 (Saturday)
Four more games in the JFL on the Saturday of the holiday weekend - and leaders Honda FC are now four points clear at the top, as goals from Kodai Suzuki, Ryosuke Horiki and Suzuki's strike partner Junya Nitta gave the Hamamatsu-based side a 3-0 win over Sagawa Printing. Moving into second place ahead of Sagawa Kyubin Osaka (who play Sagawa Kyubin Tokyo on Sunday) are Rosso Kumamoto, although they made heavy weather of it against Arte Takasaki. Two goals from top scorer Yutaka Takahashi seemed to have put the J-League hopefuls in total control in the first eight minutes, but the beleaguered Arte fought back and were level before half-time. Rosso eventually claimed all three points thanks to a winner from Hiroshi Fukushima six minutes after the break.

Something of a form team at present are Yokogawa Musashino, who continued their good run with a 2-0 win at Sony Sendai and are now level on points with Sagawa Osaka and four in front of both YKK AP and Tochigi SC. Like YKK, neighbours Alo's Hokuriku are fading from the title race and their latest disappointment came in the form of a 1-1 draw at home to Ryutsu Keizai University which keeps them stuck somewhere down towards mid-table. It was a decent result for RKU, though, for whom every single point is priceless in their battle to avoid a relegation play-off spot - bad news, though, for the likes of Honda Lock, Mitsubishi Mizushima and FC Ryukyu, who all seem destined to stay in the dogfight until the end of the season.
