KASHIMA (Kyodo) A first-half strike from Tatsuya Furuhashi gave Cerezo Osaka a shock 1-0 win over Kashima Antlers on Sunday, handing the J. League first-division leaders its first defeat of the season.

Kashima, however, stayed five points clear at the top of the table despite seeing its six-match winning streak halted as nearest rival Nagoya Grampus Eight was sunk 3-0 at Urawa Reds.
