Tsukuba FC Ladies 1 - 0 INAC Kobe Leoncina (agg. 3 - 0)
Tsukuba went into this second leg both relieved and delighted at the ease of their first-leg two-goal victory and when they took the lead in the twenty-sixth minute through Sugahara Haruka - her only goal of the season - there was no way back for the Leoncina who will again compete in the Kansai League next year. Tsukuba will look to recruit more players for another relegation battle in 2016.

Mashiki Renaissance Kumamoto 2 - 1 Orca Kamogawa FC (agg. 2 - 2)
Orca Kamogawa and their band of seasoned veterans have been promoted to the Challenge League after a dramatic win on away goals, with opponents Kumamoto again finding themselves relegated to the Kyushu League. Kurahara Honami had given the hosts tremendous hope of surviving when she scored twice to give them a 2-1 lead on aggregate at half-time. Kamogawa were unfazed and twenty-one minutes after the restart had a precious aggregate equaliser, Nakashima Ayaka scoring after a poor attempt from Kumamoto goalkeeper Ushijima Natsuki. Kumamoto did little in the way of attack in the second half and the experienced Kamogawa players had little trouble in holding on.
