Kyushu League
There was significant action at the top and bottom of the Kyushu League on Sunday, but undoubtedly the most important result of the round was Honda Lock's shock 1-0 defeat at home by New Wave Kitakyushu. Yudai Nakashima got the vital goal in the second half - a score that simultaneously brings to an end Lock's 100% record since the start of the year, re-ignites New Wave's own stuttering promotion campaign and enables V Varen Nagasaki to return to the top of the table. For V Varen saw off Nippon Steel Oita 3-1 in what was for them the perfect preparation for next Sunday's vital clash with Lock.

The title race would therefore seem to be down to three teams, but the battle to avoid relegation is becoming increasingly complex; essentially, almost any of the other clubs apart from Nippon Steel could end up in the bottom two, although Okinawa Kariyushi helped their cause via a 3-1 win over neighbours Kaiho Bank SC. Kumamoto Teachers are unsurprisingly finding life tough following promotion from the Prefectural League and they lost again at Volca Kagoshima. But Nanakuma Tombies gave themselves some hope at least with their first points of the year by beating Osumi NIFS United.
