We turned around the 1-0 defeat earlier in June to progress to the next round of the league cup. Takagi bagged his first goal in an S-Pulse shirt, and it was great to see him bounding away behind the goal, arms aloft, with Ono after him.

Job's a good 'un!
Tonight was a very good recovery after Saturday's mauling at the hands of Cerezo, and a professional performance we can take some pride in. Kofu came with the advantage, but we kept to our plan and got the job done.

In the next round we face Niigata. The game is another two legged affair and will be played on September 14th and 28th.

I'm off to my bed - night!


The goals.

Takagi's goal was fantastic..nice training ground move.. We should get past Niigata in the next round while Jubilo has to face Sendai.. would be a bonus if they can get knocked out as well :)

Hopefully - although Niigata beat us twice last year in the league. Jubilo on the other hand should lost to Sendai. :)
