The losing streak has ended! After four defeats in a row, Fujieda come away from Sony Sendai with a point. Although it could have been a lot better with Sendai getting a late goal, Toshihide Saito will surely be happy to have finally got another point on the bad.
The changes in goal continued for MYFC, with Tatsuya Murao preferred in goal instead of Daichi Shibata. A change of system saw the visitors start with a 5-4-1 system.Out went Takahiro Tanio, Shogo Nakatsuru and Akira Toshima. In came Kazushi Uchida, Ken Hisatomi and Takahisa Nishiyama, who led the line up front on his own. Saito and Hiroyuki Ishida made the bench.
The first forty five minutes was rather uneventful. No goals, no bookings, just two shots from Sendai was all that could have been talked about.
The second half continued much the same with very little talking points. Toshima replaced Yuta Murase in the 54th minute but the game really exploded into life in the 71st minute when Ishida replaced Nishiyama.
That proved to be a great decision by Saito as just eight minutes after the 34 year old came on, he gave Fujieda the lead. It was the midfielder’s first goal of the season. He also didn’t score last year so that goal has been a long time coming.
The away side then made another substitute when Nakatsuru came on for Hisatomi as Fujieda tried to hold onto the lead. However, it was not to be as with just three minutes to go, Sendai scored an equaliser.
This time it was another substitute who scored, Shinnosuke Morihara after coming on in the 69th minute scoring his second goal of the season to grab Sony Sendai a point.
