Verdy 3 Ehime 1-Full report tomorrow......didn't see the game.
Thespa 0 Tokushima 0- Not much to say on this one. Thespa gets a point to pull out of the cellar and jump up to 9th. Tokushima is just out of promotion range in 5th (probably the last time I'll be writing this!)
Kyoto Sanga 0 Shonan Bellmare 0- The newly improved Shonan defense held a dangerous Kyoto side scoreless even after being outshot 16 to 8. Big tip of the cap goes to Yong Gwi Kim who held up in goal.
Cerezo Osaka 0 Vegalta Sendai 2-Satoshi Tsunami took on his former team in Cerezo's J2 debut. Cerezo outshot the Sendai side 14 to 7 but could not crack Junnsuke Schneider. Vegalta took an early lead on a goal from Naoki Chiba. Sendai went up by 2 when Ryan Yong Gi put a score in in the 51st minute. Masayuki Yanagisawa made his debut for the pink and purple by getting a yellow card. Rentals from Rui on the horizon?
