SAITAMA — Kashima Antlers and Gamba Osaka ramped up the pressure on Kawasaki Frontale in the J. League title race with wins on Saturday, while Urawa Reds salvaged some pride from a difficult season with a last-gasp 3-2 victory over Jubilo Iwata.

With Frontale not in action until Sunday’s away trip to Oita Trinita, Antlers beat Kyoto Sanga 1-0 to move into first place for at least a day, with Takuya Nozawa’s 37th-minute goal giving the defending champions a two-point lead at the top.
