J-League champions Nagoya win first match

Reigning J-League champions Nagoya Grampus finally got off the mark with a 2-0 win over Kawasaki Frontale on Saturday.

Veteran striker Keiji Tamada put a brace past Kawasaki goalkeeper Rikihiro Sugiyama, scoring in the 33rd and 82nd minutes to lift Nagoya to their first win of the fledgling season.

The reigning champions are now 10th with four points, having drawn with Yokohama F Marinos and fallen at Urawa Red Diamonds.

Elsewhere, Jubilo Iwata and Sanfrecce Hiroshima maintained their unbeaten starts with a 1-1 draw at the Yamaha Stadium.

Japan international Tadanari Lee put Hiroshima ahead from the penalty spot in the 68th minute, but five minutes later Iwata striker Hidetaka Kanazono found the net to level the match.

Hiroshima lie fifth in the standings with five points after three games, the same tally accrued by Iwata back in seventh.
