Then at the 17-minute mark, Shonan Bellmare found an equaliser on the back of a great counter-attack as their forward line burst ahead after winning the ball. Here Shuti Machino found a perfect pass with a looping header and smashed the ball into the bottom corner to level the score.
Shonan Bellmare double their lead in the next six minutes with Takuya Wada’s amazing own goal but then conceded an equaliser thanks to another Koki Ogawa strike.
