Naoki Ishihara scored in the second minute to give Vegalta Sendai an early lead in a 2-1 win at Kashima Antlers in the J. League first division on Sunday.

Ishihara opened the scoring when he converted a cross from midfielder Kunimitsu Sekiguchi directly in front of goal at Kashima Stadium. Antlers had a chance to level two minutes later but Ryota Nagaki’s close-range shot just missed the post.
