J.League wrap: Tokyo shock Sanfrecce, Gamba thrash Sapporo

25 August 2012 14:39

J.League leaders Sanfrecce Hiroshima suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at home to FC Tokyo on Saturday night.

Brazilian striker Lucas Severino scored the decisive goal just after half-time to see Sanfrecce's lead at the summit cut to just one point after Vegalta Sendai beat Omiya Ardija 3-1 away from home.

Omiya went ahead in the 25th minute through Yu Hasegawa before Wilson levelled the scores on the stroke of half-time.

The second half belonged to Vegalta with goals from Jiro Kamata and Toshihiro Matsushita sealing the comfortable win.

Vegalta now sit on 42 points with 11 wins for the season, just one point behind Sanfrecce.

Elsewhere, Urawa Red Diamonds recorded a 2-0 away win over Shimizu S-Pulse thanks to goals from Tsukasa Umesaki and Yuki Abe.

Gamba Osaka demolished fellow cellar-dwellers Consadole Sapporo 7-2 to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Leandro scored a hat-trick in the win which leaves Sapporo stranded on the bottom of the table 13 points behind their nearest rivals.

Second-half goals from Hotaru Yamaguchi and Yoichirio Kakitani saw Cerezo Osaka account for fifth-placed Yokohama F Marinos 2-0, while fourth-placed Kashiwa Reysol also suffered defeat after losing 3-0 at home to Jubilo Iwata.

Nagoya Grampus recorded an encouraging 1-0 win away from home against Kawasaki Frontale, with a Mu Kanasaki strike in the 74th minute enough for the away side.

In other results, Albirex Niigata defeated Kashima Antlers 1-0 while Vissel Kobe and Sagan Tosu played out a 0-0 draw.
