This match was similar to the previous group stage game, Teikō vs Kōen. The pressure of Teikō's policy fell onto the team's shoulders and their play was uneasy. They chose to rest their second-yeras early and play out the third-years. Nijimura and his teammates played it safe and won with an acceptable point difference.
