Quezada features late as Chiba settles for draw against Sendai in WE.League


Quinley Quezada and the rest of Chiba Ladies team are yet to taste victory in the 2021-2022 WE.League after battling to a 1-1 stalemate against Sendai, Saturday afternoon, at the Yurtec Stadium Sendai in front of 1,071 spectators in Miyagi, Japan.

The result puts JEF United Chiba at ninth place with two points in the standings after four matches played so far this season.

The 24-year-old was brought on by manager Shinji Sarusawa at the 90+1 minute in place of Miho Kanagawa as the Chiba-based side was holding out for a valuable away draw.

“We made the players aware of what they couldn’t do to get up and the pressure from the opponent’s front line. I was able to be patient, but I think it was a waste to concede the first goal,” read a translated version of Sarusawa’s post-game comments.

MyNavi Sendai drew first blood at the 19th minute thanks to Miku Yakata’s strike. However, midfielder Natsuki Kishikawa was able to find an equalizer for JEF United just before the halftime break at the 39th minute.

“However, as for today’s game, I said, ‘Let’s play football aggressively,” added Sarusawa. “It was a big (improvement) to put pressure from the front line and show us the way we attacked by taking the ball. I think it was great that we got one point even though we didn’t get three points.”

Another away fixture beckons for Quezada and JEF United as they take on AC Nagano Parceiro Ladies, which is currently at fifth place on the league table with 5 points, next Saturday at the Minami Nagano Sports Park Stadium in Nagana, Japan. Kickoff is 12:00 NN Manila time.
