Striker Keiji Tamada scored in the second half Sunday to lift Kashiwa Reysol to their first victory in the second stage in a 1-0 win over Yokohama F. Marinos in the J. League.

Tamada pounced on a right-cross from defender Yasuhiro Hato at International Stadium Yokohama and followed through in the 81st minute to score his eighth goal of the season. It was Kashiwa’s first victory in regulation under coach Hiroshi Hayano.

At Kashima Stadium, the match between the Kashima Antlers and Sanfrecce Hiroshima ended in a scoreless draw after both teams failed to capitalize on scoring opportunities.
