Shikoku League
A hat-trick by striker Hiroshi Kato last weekend helped Kamatamare Sanuki to a vital 6-2 win at rivals Nangoku Kochi to pile the pressure on shock Shikoku League leaders Tokushima Vortis Amateur. But Vortis on Sunday beat neighbours Tokushima Comprille SC 2-0, both goals coming from star forward Hideo Okamoto, to keep their noses in front at the top.

It's now going to be very difficult for Comprille to escape the relegation play-offs, as they are six points behind the nearest team, Ventana AC, after the latter's 2-1 victory away at wooden spooners Sanwa Club. Surprise strugglers Ehime Shimanami also managed their third win of the season, 1-0 against Sanyo Electric Tokushima, to banish their own fears of the drop.
