Hokushinetsu League Division 2
A top-of-the-table clash in Division 2 of the Hokushinetsu League has turned the race for the title on its head. Saurcos Fukui may have led the way for almost the whole campaign, but their defeat last week to FC Antelope Shiojiri opened the way for Granscena Niigata to pounce when the two met on Sunday - and pounce they did, scoring three times in five minutes late on in the game to defeat Saurcos and take over on top spot. With only two games to go, this could mean that Granscena take the single automatic promotion place, while the runners up must play off against the seventh team in Division 1.

Still just about in touch and challenging for the play-off position are FC Antelope and Ohara School JaSRA, who drew in their match. But at the bottom of the table, Toyama Shinjo Club are confirmed as being relegated to the Prefectural Leagues after they lost to CUPS Niigata. Teihens FC, however, are facing the drop for the second consecutive year, their 3-0 loss at Maruoka Phoenix a fifth consecutive defeat that means they fall into the other automatic relegation place.
