AC Nagano Parceiro Ladies 0 - 2 Fukuoka J. Anclas
In April, Nagano fell behind to Fukuoka but a very late equaliser spared their blushes but there was to be no recovery this time as the league leaders fell to a third defeat in four games reducing the gap back to Nojima to only three points. Captain Fujisawa Marin scored first for Fukuoka, with Yatsugi's goal six minutes from time giving the ninth-placed team a boost in their hopes of escaping relegation.
Nagano play Harima next weekend, and with Nojima having already played, they have the chance to reassert their superiority in the division. Fukuoka also play next week, against Hiroshima.

Nojima Stella Kanagawa Sagamihara 2 - 1 Nittaidai Fields Yokohama
A good win for Nojima over Nittaidai in the Kanagawa derby has strengthened the former's position and almost certainly ended the latter's hopes of a repeat playoff attempt. Minamino Arisa and Yoshimi Natsuki had the home side two goals up before a late Uemura Shoko reply made the game appear closer than it really was.
Both clubs have a two-week break before they resume activities. Nojima play Harima; Nittaidai face another local rival, Sfida Setagaya.

Ehime FC Ladies 3 - 0 FC Kibikokusaidaigaku Charme
A third victory of the season for Ehime over Kibi courtesy of goals from Iwamoto, Sakurai and Yamashiro have the Shikoku team in fourth place, three points ahead of the resurgent Setagaya, though they are now so far behind Nittaidai in third that fourth place is the best they can hope for. They next play Fukuoka. Kibi, who have now lost two consecutive games take on Nagano.

AS Harima Albion 0 - 1 Japan Soccer College Ladies
The Japan Soccer College's second win of the season, and their first since April 5th, has given the Niigata side renewed spirit as they attempt to claw their way off the bottom, though with only five games remaining they have little chance of recovery. Harima have had a very disappointing season and have dropped to seventh, and they had no answer to Tsurumi Marina's eighty-first minute winner. Harima next play a determined Nagano side who will punish any mistakes. The JSC next host Hiroshima in two weeks.

Sfida Setagaya FC 3 - 1 Ange Violet Hiroshima
Remarkable contrasting fortunes for these two sides, as Setagaya powered their way to a fourth consecutive victory against a Hiroshima team which has now lost five of their last six games. Setagaya have thus overtaken Hiroshima in fifth place, with neither side capable of promotion nor in danger of relegation. Hara Shiho and Nagasawa Yume had Setagaya two goals ahead at the break, with Mori Hitomi adding a third six minutes after the restart. A lone reply from Konishi Natsuki was all that Hiroshima could offer.
Hiroshima will look to recover against Fukuoka next weekend. Setagaya don't play again until October 12th, when they face Nittaidai.
