Avispa draw at Roasso in typhoon-delayed match

The MEIJI YASUDA J2 League Round 33 match between Roasso Kumamoto and Avispa Fukuoka ended 1-1 on Monday after it was postponed by the typhoon.

Won Du-Jae put the visitors into the lead at Egao Kenko Stadium in the 69th minute, but Roasso responded just four minutes later when Shintaro Shimada equalised from the penalty spot.

The match finished in the draw, extending Avispa’s winless streak to six matches and officially dropping out of second place and an automatic promotion spot for the first time since Round 17.

The last unplayed fixture of the round, between Ehime FC and Kyoto Sanga, is yet to be rescheduled.
