Kansai League Division 2
Going straight to the top of the early season table in Division 2 of the Kansai League are newly-promoted student side Hannan University Club. After a 6-2 defeat last weekend of Kyoto Shiko Club, they beat fellow university team Riseisha FC 2-1 on Saturday to maintain their impressive start. But Takada FC, relegated from Division 1 at the end of 2006, are behind them only on goals scored following their 4-1 win over Kihoku Football Group.

Something of a shock is the fact that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe have also managed two wins out of two, their second three-pointer being a single goal affair with Hermano Osaka. The fourth fixture of the round ended in a 1-1 draw, thus helping both Kohga School and Kyoto Shiko Club to get off the mark for the season.
