Koroki's late goal lifts Kashima

KASHIMA, Ibaraki Pref. (AP) Shinzo Koroki scored in the final minute Sunday to lead defending J. League champions Kashima Antlers to a 2-1 win over Sanfrecce Hiroshima.

Masashi Motoyama gave Kashima a 1-0 lead with a long-range right-foot shot in the 15th minute but Bulgarian defender Ilian Stoyanov tied the game with a penalty on the hour mark.

In other matches, Davi scored a pair of goals to lead Nagoya Grampus to a 3-1 win over Shimizu S-Pulse.

Davi opened the scoring in the 25th minute and Keiji Yoshimura doubled the lead in the 76th from a pass from Yoshizumi Ogawa.

Shinji Okazaki pulled one back for Shimizu before Davi settled the matter from the penalty spot with his fourth of the season.

Elsewhere, Lee Jung Soo and Diego scored in either half as Kyoto Sanga upset Gamba Osaka 2-1.

JEF United and Kawasaki Frontale played to a 1-1 draw.
