JFL Saturday Scores
A busy round 8 JFL programme on Saturday saw five games scheduled, with important results at the top and bottom of the table. The key Tochigi SC - FC Gifu clash takes place on Sunday and Sagawa Kyubin SC took advantage to move back into pole position, two goals from Nobumitsu Yamane helping the newly-merged team to a 3-0 win over Gainare Tottori. It was a good day, too, for Rosso Kumamoto, whose 3-1 defeat of a Sony Sendai team now in freefall moved the former Kyushu Leaguers into third place.

Yokogawa Musashino and Tochigi currently occupy fourth and fifth, but equal on points with them now are YKK AP. Experienced midfielder Haksun Fang's struck on the hour to claim three points at the expense of Arte Takasaki. Elsewhere, Kodai Suzuki netted twice but his Honda FC side could still only claim a 2-2 draw at JEF Reserves, meaning that the reigning JFL champions are already eight points off the pace and are slumped in mid-table. And coming up behind them are Ryutsu Keizai University, 3-0 winners at lowly Sagawa Printing thanks in part to two goals from giant defender Shakuon So.
