Frontale and Antlers progress to Emperor’s Cup semis

Kawasaki Frontale are into the semi-finals of the Emperor’s Cup after seeing off FC Tokyo 2-1 in Saturday’s quarter-final.

Yoshito Okubo fired in the opener in the 20th minute before Elsinho doubled the lead eight minutes later, rendering Sota Hirayama’s late goal little more than a consolation.

In the other clash at Kashima Stadium, Shuhei Akasaki netted the decisive goal to see Kashima Antlers emerge 1-0 victors over Sanfrecce Hiroshima, in a game between the last two J1 League champions.
