Kennedy nets in Nagoya win

14 July 2013-PA Sport

Australia striker Josh Kennedy was among the goals as Nagoya Grampus beat Sagan Tosu 3-2 in the J.League.

Sanfrecce Hiroshima reached second place after Yojiro Takahagi's last-gasp goal sealed a 1-0 victory over Cerezo Osaka.

Takahagi waited until the 90th minute to fire the only goal of the game and lift Sanfrecce to within three points of leader Omiya Ardija, which lost 2-1 at Yokohama F. Marinos.

The fourth-placed club took a two-goal lead into the break thanks to Marcos Marquinhos (22) and Manabu Saito (36), with Tomoki Imai's response on the stroke of full-time arriving too late to make an impact.

Urawa Red Diamonds is third but a 4-0 defeat at mid-table Kawasaki Frontale was hard to stomach for Mihailo Petrovic's men.

Kengo Nakamura opened the scoring on 28 minutes, with Renatinho adding a second two minutes later, and Kawasaki was three goals to the good by the break thanks to Masaki Yamamoto (43). Yoshito Okubo's penalty four minutes after the break added insult to injury.

Kashima Antlers is on the slide after a 2-1 defeat at Kashiwa Reysol - a game decided by Cleo's second-half brace - while FC Tokyo picked up an impressive 3-0 win at Albirex Niigata.

A 1-1 draw at Vegalta Sendai did little to help Jubilo Iwata's battle against the drop but Oita Trinita remains bottom of the pile after a 3-1 loss at Shimizu S-Pulse.

Shonan Bellmar claimed a 1-0 win at Vantforet Kofu.
