Kansai League Division 2
In Division 2 of the Kansai League, Hannan University and Takada FC look almost certain to gain promotion come the end of the year, although both dropped points in unexpected circumstances in the weekend's fixtures. Champions-elect Hannan were held 1-1 at home to Kohga School, while Takada could manage only a goalless draw at struggling Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe. Indeed, that result combined with Hermano Osaka's 2-0 defeat at Riseisha FC has given Mitsubishi a better chance of avoiding the relegation Play-off that goes with a seventh-place finish. Kihoku Football Group, however, are nearly guaranteed to be playing Prefectural League football this year after their 8-2 thrashing at home to Kyoto Shiko Club left them ten points adrift with only four games to go.
