Speranza FC Osaka Takatsuki 0 - 0 Nojima Stella Kanagawa Sagamihara (agg. 2 - 2)
Nojima went for all-out attack in this must-win game against Takatsuki, and came close to scoring on a number of occasions, with Tanaka Yoko hitting the bar both midway through the first half and right at the death, but to no avail. Takatsuki survive for another year while Nojima are again disappointed not to make the step up. Another season in the seond tier beckons for the Kanagawa outfit.
