Urawa beats defending champs Hiroshima in J-League
Question of the Day
HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) - Shinzo Koroki and Genki Haraguchi scored to lead Urawa Reds past defending champion Sanfrecce Hiroshima 2-0 in the J-League on Saturday.
Koroki scored his first goal of the season on a header in the 42nd minute and Haraguchi doubled the lead with a right-footed shot from 15 meters in the final minute of regulation.
The win allowed Urawa to pull level with Sanfrecce on six points after three games.
On Thursday, Urawa was disciplined over racist fan behavior and ordered to play its next home game on March 23 at an empty stadium.
The decision comes after a fan displayed a banner at Urawa’s stadium a week ago that had the words “Japanese Only” written on it. The sign was put up at a stadium entrance before a March 8 game at Saitama Stadium and wasn’t removed until after the match.
Elsewhere, Seitaro Tomisawa scored in the first half and Sho Ito and Jungo Fujimoto added second-half goals as Yokohama F Marinos beat promoted Tokushima Vortis 3-0 and improved to nine points. Kashima Antlers remained the only other undefeated team after a 3-0 win over Sagan Tosu.
Cerezo Osaka coasted to a 4-1 win over Shimizu S-Pulse, while Ventforet Kofu and Albirex Niigata drew 1-1.
Australian John Kennedy scored a second-half header as Nagoya Grampus beat Kashiwa Reysol 1-0, while Omiya Ardija recorded its first win of the season by scoring twice in the final minutes for a 4-3 victory at Kawasaki Frontale.
