Mito played top university side and JFL member Ryutsu Keizai University at Twin Field yesterday afternoon, winning the match two goals to none. RKU played a full power side while Mito played a sub side mixed with some starters.
The matchup was held partly because one of the RKU forwards, 3rd year student Ryota Nakahama, switched over to a Mito uniform and joined the squad. It was his tryout to see if he might fit with the team under JFA summer play analysis, as several have done under Mito in recent years. He played well and submitted the assist for both goals.
Mito scored one goal in each half through forward Takasaki. It will be all that he can do until the Yokohama match on the 19th as his yellow card at Kusatsu will keep him out of the Gifu match on Saturday.
