Kansai League Division 2
It was Takada FC whose nerve finally cracked in the race for the Kansai League Division 2 title. All season long, they have been neck and neck at the top with newcomers Hannan University - but on Saturday they could only draw with Kyoto Shiko Club, while Hannan were cruising to a 5-1 win at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe.

Shiko and Mitsubishi are fighting things out in mid-table along with Kohga School - 2-1 winners over struggling Hermano Osaka - and Riseisha FC, who beat Kihoku Football Group 4-3. This leaves Kihoku yet to get off the mark after seven matches of the season and looking odds-on for the automatic relegation place, while Hermano are in danger of having to play off to remain in the Kansai League next season.
