TOKUSHIMA VORTIS 1- 1 FC RYUKYU //

Third consecutive home draw for Ricardo Rodríguez’s men, in a totally opposite dynamic as compared to the away games, where they add up the last matches by victories. However, Tokushima continues to climb up the table and lead Japan League 2 with 48 points, a distance of two points from second place Avispa Fukuoka and three points away from third place Giravanz.

Ryukyu had the first chance of the match with a filtered ball behind Tokushima’s back, a goal option saved by the blue defense in a good blocking of their goal. Ricardo Rodríguez’s side had their first appearance on goal with a mid-range shot by Sugimori. The match remained even until the 38th minute, where the visiting team took advantage of an error in the ball out of Tokushima to launch a counterattack finished by Kazama.

Ryukyu could make the difference bigger just a minute later, but that was prevented by a good save from Kamifukumoto. That action allowed Tokushima to stay in the game for the second half, with Kakita scoring the equalizer of the game around minute 60.

For the rest of the match, the game returned to the rhythm of the first half, with both teams looking for the goal, although without the right definition to make a difference.
