AS Elfen Sayama FC  0 - 5  Urawa Red Diamonds Ladies
(Attendance: 2,057)

Not to be outdone, Urawa Reds also won by five goals to nil, beating Elfen Sayama in the day's only away victory. Niwata Akiko scored the opener in the first half directly from a free kick on the edge of the penalty area. The ball was played in towards the goal and with an attacker ready to pounce, the goalkeeper dived in anticipation only to find the ball continuing on its path and into the net. Arakawa Eriko doubled the lead with barely five minutes of the second half gone as she guided a header past the keeper following some neat build-up play. Kira Chinatsu scored the third and fourth, though there was a suspicion of offside with her first goal. Yasuda Yuki finished the scoring with some determined play following a short goalkick.
