Japan striker Shinji Okazaki grabbed a second-half equalizer as Shimizu S-Pulse preserved their unbeaten start to the season with a 1-1 draw away to Gamba Osaka in the J. League on Saturday.

Tomokazu Myojin put injury-ravaged Gamba ahead from the penalty spot five minutes before halftime but Okazaki earned S-Pulse a share of the spoils and kept them top of the table with a deflected effort on 70 minutes at Expo Stadium.
