Around the League: Wrapup of Week 1 Action

 

East Division

Fujitsu Frontiers 87, Hurricanes 0: Keita Takanohashi ran for three touchdowns and 156 yards as Pearl Bowl runner-up Fujitsu gave the Hurricanes a rude welcome in their return to X1 with a rout at Kawasaki Stadium. Former All-Ivy League running back Gino Gordon, out of Harvard, made his X-League debut a memorable one by rushing for 105 yards on five carries, including a pair of 15-yard touchdown runs. Shopei Yoshimoto ran back the opening kickoff and a third-quarter punt for touchdowns, while rookie Ryuma Narita caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for a score.

Kajima Deers 59, Tokyo Gas Creators 3: Yoshinari Iwakura rushed for two touchdowns and Shohei Kato passed for two as Kajima spoiled new Tokyo Gas head coach Kurt Rose’s return to the X-League by crushing the Creators in the first-ever official league game in the Tohoku Region. Before a crowd of 2,109 at Sendai’s Yurtec Stadium, home of the J.League’s Vegalta Sendai, Katsuya Nagakawa caught four passes for 101 yards and a touchdown and Yuji Kuwasawa had two interceptions for the Deers, who are starting their final season under the sponsorship of Kajima Corp.

Asahi Silver Star 34, Nihon Unisys Bulls 7: Shingo Hamada ran for two touchdowns, including a 78-yarder, as Asahi Beer broke open a close game in the second half to roll past Nihon Unisys at Yokohama Stadium.  The Asahi Beer defense held the Bulls to just 76 total yards, forced three turnovers and recorded three quarterback sacks. The Silver Star led 7-0 at halftime and 14-7 in the third quarter before Hamada broke away on his long run.

 

Central Division

Obic Seagulls 31, Metropolitan Police Dept. Eagles 0: Three-time defending champion Obic led newly promoted Eagles by just 7-0 at halftime and 14-0 after three quarters, but put the game out of reach when Shun Sugawara threw for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter in the season-opening game at Kawasaki Stadium. Although the Eagles, playing their first season in X1, could not generate any offense against the stiff Seagulls defense (82 total yards, including just 14 rushing),  the defense scored a moral victory by forcing Obic to punt four times.

Nojima Sagamihara Rise 19, All Mitsubishi Lions 0: Takashi Miyako scored on a 1-yard run in the second quarter and Shin Idezawa kicked four field goals as Nojima came away with a victory over All Mitsubishi at Kawasaki Stadium, but was left rueing its inability to score in the red zone. Quarterbacks Takahiro Kojima and Masato Kinoshita combined to complete 21 of 31 passes for 247 yards for the Rise, who had to settle for field goals three times after being stopped inside the 10-yard line. Newcomer Loka Kanonataa, out of San Diego University, had five tackles and one of two Rise interceptions in his Japan debut to help preserve the shutout.

IBM BigBlue 34, Meiji Yasuda Pirates 0: Tomokazu Sueyoshi ran for 108 yards and three touchdowns and Kevin Craft completed 14 of 22 passes for 215 yards and two TDs as IBM opened the season by crushing Meiji Yasuda before 6,321 at Tokyo Dome. Sueyoshi, who also caught five passes for 107 yards, scored on runs of 10, 6 and 70 yards, while Michihiro Ogawa caught both touchdown passes from Craft. Highly touted rookie defensive back Daisuke Hoso had one of IBM’s two interceptions and the defense held the Lions to just 5 yards rushing.

 

West Division

Panasonic Impulse 64, Elecom Kobe Finies 7: Rookie Shun Yokota debuted with one of the most productive games in league history, rushing for six touchdowns as Panasonic, looking to re-establish its dominance in the West, crushed Elecom at Kobe’s Oji Stadium. Five of Yokota’s scores were from inside the 8 as he finished with 90 yards on 15 carries. Veteran Tetsuo Takata completed 14 of 18 passes for 191 yards, including a touchdown to Shoma Endo, who had nine receptions for 135 yards. Elecom’s new quarterback Inoke Funaki, a former Hawaii University starter making his Japan debut at 30, went 10-for-22 for 122 yards with one TD and one interception.

As One Black Eagles 24, Nagoya Cyclones 7: Makoto Okuno passed for a touchdown and ran for two more to lead As One over Nagoya at Osaka’s Expo Flash Field. Okuno connected with Takashi Katsuyama on a 53-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, then scored on runs of 14 and 1 yards. Nagoya avoided a shutout when Takafumi Yamamoto threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Riichiro Shinjo midway through the fourth quarter.

Asahi Soft Drinks Challengers 49, Nishinomiya Bruins 0: Former NFL practice squad quarterback Tomotsuna Inoue began his X-League career by passing for one touchdown and rushing for two to lead Asahi Soft Drinks to a rout of Nishinomiya at Osaka’s Expo Flash Field. Inoue completed 10 of 17 passes for 101 yards, while Teruhiko Inage (5 carries for 126 yards) and rookie Yuki Shirakami (7 for 120, 1 TD) both broke long runs. Backup QB Masayoshi Hayashi passed for one touchdown and ran for another to account for the Challengers’ points in the second half.
