Takashi Kanai scored an extra-time winner as Sagan Tosu came from behind to beat J. League first-division frontrunner FC Tokyo 2-1 Saturday, denying the visitors the three points they needed to ensure their league lead.

The loss left FC Tokyo with 53 points, one ahead of the Kashima Antlers and Yokohama F. Marinos, who beat Jubilo Iwata 2-0 to keep the pressure on the leader. Kashima, with a superior goal difference over FC Tokyo, plays Cerezo Osaka on Sunday.
