FC Gifu 2 - 1 Kataller Toyama (ht 0-1)
Gifu started off the 2010 season with a good 2-1 come-from-behind over rivals Kataller Toyama in Gifu on sunday. Only the main stand was open for spectators at Nagaragawa, but 4000 fans turned up to watch Gifu come from behind at half time and steal an important first victory.
Toyama outplayed Gifu in the first half but were lucky not to go behind when Oshitani missed a PK. In the second half Gifu hit their stride with the injection of Shimada, who scored their first goal, and then Oshitani's great second goal.
Next week the team travel to Oita, where they will face Trinita who lost 2-1 away to Kashiwa Reysol in round 1. Should be a good one!
