Hokushinetsu League Division 1
This weekend was the mid-point of the Hokushinetsu League Division 1 season and a double-header of matches, with each of the teams playing on both Saturday and Sunday. And it was 2006 champions Japan Soccer College who emerged the major winners, as they grabbed six vital points by defeating relegation candidates Ueda Gentian and Niigata University of Management to go top of the table.

Previous leaders AC Nagano Parceiro on the other hand suffered perhaps the shock defeat of the year so far to stumble down into third place. After having come from behind to beat Fervorosa 3-2 in a nail-biting clash on Saturday, they sensationally lost by the same score to newly promoted side Valiente Toyama on Sunday. Matsumoto Yamaga Club move ahead of them into second, although it is clear that there is still everything to play for in this league.

The Ishikawa prefecture duo of Fervorosa and Zweigen Kanazawa cannot be dismissed from contention either, Fervorosa beating their rivals 2-1 in Sunday's derby game to hold on to fourth spot. At the bottom of the table, Valiente's tremendous win over Nagano means that they move out of the relegation zone, while NUM and Ueda now prop up the division.
