S-Pulse swept past this year's J1 whipping boys Consadole Sapporo 4-0 at Atsubestsu Park this evening. The win makes it four our of four in 2012's Nabisco Cup group stage, and (barring Niigata winning both remaining games 3-0 and us losing both ours) secures a place in the knock outs with two games to play.

Top, top work from the lads. Our league cup teams have included a blend of youngsters, débutantes and some older heads. We've scored 8 and only conceded one. Today's four goals included strikes from the unlikely sources of Lee, Kawai, Sugiyama and most notably the Asian young player of the year, Hideki Ishige.

 Hats off! This lot deserve a beer or three

Now here's to a safe journey back to Shizuoka tomorrow, and a relaxing game on Saturday at home to Omiya. Omiya are already out, we're effectively through, so we can expect the kids starting and hopefully some more goals like those that rewarded the travelling diehards in Hokkaido tonight. :)


Highlights! Check out the controlling touches and finisher's instinct for Ishige's goal. Pretty confident stuff from the 17 year old.
