Not the eight goals I was hoping for, but I’ll take it.
Highlights are from a weekly roundup show. The highlights from this match start at 2:45.
The fifth goal was scored by debutant OSAKI Junya, fresh from Sanfrecce Youth (he wasn’t even included in the squad at the beginning of the season so he doesn’t appear in the fixture list booklet. According to the commentators he is in his final year of high school.) Through a happy set of circumstances involving a pair of free tickets, I have photos of all five Sanfrecce goals, so I will post them.
Sanfrecce need only one point in their next game against Jubilo Iwata this weekend to qualify for the next round of the Nabisco Cup.
0 – 1 5′ T. Matsushita

Another well-won point away from home to one of the best teams in the J-League. The boys in violet fought back from 3-1 down with a reserve keeper after Sato went off injured. Promisingly, this result is Sanfrecce’s fourth unbeaten game on the run, and it looks good for the showdown with Frontale next weekend.
0 – 1 15′ H. Sato
Pedro Junior 22′ 1 – 1
Pedro Junior 30′ 2 – 1
Pedro Junior 43′ 3 – 1
3 – 2 55′ Y. Kashiwagi
3 – 3 73′ H. Oshima (OG)
