KASHIMA, Ibaraki Pref. — Defending champions Kashima Antlers reined in Nagoya Grampus’ march toward the J. League title and revived their own championship ambitions with a gritty 1-0 win over the league leaders on Sunday.

Grampus began the day with a 10-point advantage at the top of the table, knowing that a win or a draw at Kashima Stadium would give them the chance to wrap up a first-ever championship the following week at home to struggling Omiya Ardija.
