Kansai League Division 1
With a 4-1 win over third-placed Ain Food on Saturday, Banditonce Kobe virtually ensured that their final fixture of the season at FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu will act as the Kansai League Division 1 title decider. Banditonce themselves remain two points clear at the top, but the loss for Ain Food combined with a 4-0 triumph for FC Mi-o at AS Laranja Kyoto means that there is surely too much ground for Osaka's Ain to make up in four remaining matches. Equally, at the other end of the table FC Glaspo Kashiwara are surely doomed to relegation following a 5-0 pasting at FC Kyoto 1993. But the identity of the other team who will have to play Division 2 football next season is unclear, after Kobe FC 1970 pulled off a vital 1-0 win over rivals Sanyo Electric Sumoto to give themselves a lifeline.
