Sagan Tosu 1 - 1 FC Gifu (ht 1-0)
FC Gifu put on a brave effort to come back from being a goal down after just five minutes to come back and draw the game with ten minutes remaining. Gifu were hopelessly outclassed in the first half, being overrun by a rampant Tosu who were on a five game winning streak, thanks mainly to their acquisition of super forward Mike Hafner. But in the second half Gifu started to dominate and when Takagi Kazumasa popped in his goal in the 79th minute it was all on for a desperate last ten minutes for both teams although neither could put in the deciding goal.
In the first half Gifu only put in 2 shots to Tosu's 7, but by the end of the game shots at goal were level at 11 each.
This sunday Gifu plays Ehime FC, who they have never beaten. Hopefully this time the POM Juice will be ours!
