Hokushinetsu League Division 1
There are now only two rounds to go in Division 1 of the Hokushinetsu League and the destination of the title is almost as unknown as it was at the start of the season back in early April. Reigning champions Japan Soccer College still hold on to top spot, but their lead is down to a single point thanks to a 1-0 defeat at in-form Zweigen Kanazawa. The other significant scoreline of the day was in the Nagano prefecture derby, in which Matsumoto Yamaga Club gained revenge for a defeat earlier in the year by neighbours AC Nagano Parceiro - for Matsumoto pulled off a stunning 3-0 win that moves them up into second place and at the same time knocks Parceiro down to fourth.

Rather stuck in mid-table in this division are Ishikawa's Fervorosa, who despite some investment during the close season have not quite stengthened enough to be competitive with the top four sides that are battling it out for the championship crown. Nevertheless, they followed last week's remarkable 4-1 defeat of Matsumoto by beating Valiente Toyama and have good reason to believe that next year they can do better. As for Valiente, they are just a point outside the relegation places after a draw between the bottom two sides, Ueda Gentian and Niigata University of Management.
