J3 Review: SC Sagamihara 2-2 Fujieda MYFC

A 92nd minute equaliser prevented Fujieda MYFC from coming away with three points as they drew 2-2 away to SC Sagamihara.

The starting line up

Musashi Mizushima made one change to the staring line-up that lost 1-0 last week to Grulla Morioka. Yuta Kutsukake dropped out and he was replaced by Masato Mizuki, who came on as a substitute last weekend.

Sagamihara lined up with a 4-4-2 system, with their star striker, the former Japanese international Naohiro Takahara starting up front.

The players wait as the match is delayed

With the humidity up at 86% and the temperature pushing 29℃, a thunderstorm took place before the game, meaning kick off was delayed by one hour.

Eventually, the match began in front of a good sized crowd. Fujieda were looking to get back to winning ways after that 1-0 loss last week.

It looked like that would be difficult for Fujieda to manage though as after just 16 minutes, they went 1-0 down. Striker Yuki Matsumoto scored it, his third goal of the season, after being set up by Takahara.

However, all was not lost for MYFC as 16 minutes later, top scorer Tsugutoshi Oishi equalised. After going four J3 matches without a goal, the forward’s tenth goal of the season was a much needed strike for both himself and Fujieda as he sent his side into half time at 1-1.

Half time saw Fujieda make a double change, with Shogo Nakatsuru and Takahisa Nishiyama go off for Kutsukake and Yuichiro Edamoto.

Another change followed in the 61st minute, with Mitsuru Mansho going off to be replaced by Hiroki Narabayashi, for his first game since early June.

Still though, despite changes from both sides, the game remained tied at 1-1. That was until the 83rd minute though, as MYFC substitute Edamoto scored his second of the season, after being set up by Ken Hisatomi, to give Fujieda the lead.

In the 90th minute, Fujieda looked to shut the game out by taking off striker Oishi for defensive midfielder Yuhei Marumoto but it did not have the desired effect. Deep into stoppage time, midfielder Keita Sogabe popped up with his fourth goal of the season to snatch a late point Sagamihara and end their four game losing streak.
