Tochigi SC 1 : 1 Avispa Fukuoka
Our 3rd training match was the toughest so far, and with a scoreline which reflected that as we drew 1-all with fellow J2 club Tochigi SC.
I’m not a big fan of Tochigi after they came to Level-5 a couple of years ago and played a horrible game of kicking players and running to the referee, but I guess they are also training in Miyazaki and it makes sense to play against them.
Played across 3 45-minute periods as seems to be standard with the current squad they drew the first and third periods 0-0, and scored 2 minutes after Tochigi had taken the lead to draw 1-1 in the 2nd period.
No idea what the teams were, but it was Yutaka who got the goal to go equal with Ishizu and Sakata on 3 pre-season goals.
Training match striker watch….(Which 2 (or 4 if we include the wingers) will play against Kumamoto!)
#1 Ishizu – 3 goals
#1 Sakata – 3 goals
#1 Takahashi – 3 goals
#4 Jogo – 1 goal
#4 Ushinohama – 1 goal
#6 Nishida – 0 goals
#6 Yoshihara – 0 goals
#6 Naruoka – 0 goals
We play 2 matches on Saturday, one in the morning against against Kagoshima Volca, and then one in the afternoon against Yokohama F Marinos.
I would guess that these games will be played as 2 proper 90 minute matches and might give more indication of partnerships in attack and defence.
