Kyushu League
The Kyushu League hit round 3 on Sunday and last season's winners V Varen Nagasaki would already appear to be the team to beat. They made it twenty goals scored in their three fixtures to date, with a 7-1 thrashing of Fukuoka students Nanakuma Tombies that was watched by a crowd in excess of 3000 people. But V Varen only lead on goal difference from 2006's surprise runners-up Nippon Steel Oita, who maintained their own 100% start by defeating early season shock challengers Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki.

Honda Lock have a game in hand and lie third following their 3-1 win over current bottom placed side Kaiho Bank SC, but New Wave Kitakyushu - following on from their sensational loss to Mitsubishi least weekend - continue to live dangerously, almost throwing away a 3-0 half-time lead over Osumi NIFS United. While Kumamoto Teachers had the weekend off from what this year is an eleven-team competition, Volca Kagoshima picked up two points thanks to their penalty shoot-out win following a draw with Okinawa Kariyushi.
