Kanto League Division 2
There are already clear leaders after just two rounds of the Kanto League Division 2 campaign, as pre-season favourites Furukawa Electrics Chiba underlined their status as the division's top side with a 2-1 win at Ome FC to add to their defeat last week of Kanagawa Teachers. Two points behind Furukawa are newly-promoted Yonoshukai and their Saitama neighbours Hanno Bruder, who shared the points in their match with a 2-2 draw.

But four teams now have a single point, suggesting that this could be a closely-fought league in 2007. Relegated MSDF Atsugi Marcus also drew 2-2 with former Ibaraki Prefectural League side Club Dragons, but it's Yamanashi's Nirasaki Astros who prop up the table on goal difference following their goalless encounter with Kanagawa Teachers.
