Hiroaki Okuno and Takuma Nishimura both scored in the second half as Vegalta Sendai beat Kashiwa Reysol 2-0 on Saturday to claim their first J. League win in four games.

Vegalta went into the match at Sankyo Frontier Kashiwa Stadium having picked up only four points from their five games since the league resumed after the World Cup break — a period which included an 8-2 thrashing at the hands of Yokohama F. Marinos on July 18.
