Hokushinetsu League Division 1
It was a day of truly sensational scores in Division 1 of the Hokushinetsu League on Sunday, with the overall outcome being that no fewer than five teams are now in genuine competition to take the 2007 championship. Leaders AC Nagano Parceiro slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Zweigen Kanazawa, for whom Yasuyoshi Nara was twice on target; but Parceiro remain in pole position for the time being because their erstwhile nearest challengers, Matsumoto Yamaga Club, were also beaten 2-1 by Japan Soccer College.

And while all this compressed Parceiro, Zweigen, Matsumoto and JSC into within a point of each other, also thrown into the mix are Fervorosa. The Ishikawa club - and therefore Zweigen's local rivals - have swept aside some of the division's weaker teams in recent weeks and continued the trend with a 7-0 beating of Niigata University of Management to go third.

But the action didn't even finish there, in that the fourth fixture of the day was a match-up between bottom pair Ueda Gentian and Valiente Toyama, the latter of whom had prior to kick-off yet to gain a single point following promotion from Division 2 at the end of 2006. Valiente corrected that in no uncertain terms, however, getting off the mark with a 9-0 thrashing of their relegation rivals to move off the foot of the table.
