A very good match but rough for Mito fans. Kusatsu's drawing goal came in the 88th minute by Nakamura, who played for years for Mito until this season.
If Mito defeats Tochigi next month, Mito wins the North Kanto Derby. If it is a draw, Mito can still win if Kusatsu later beats Tochigi or draws at 1-1 or 0-0. If Tochigi wins they win it all.
Statistics are fun!
