In the showdown between traditional schools, Shizuoka Gakuen defeated Higashi Fujieda 2-0 and grabbed the national ticket for the first time since the national championship in 2019. (Misaki Hirose) A group of highly individual talents has evolved into a cohesive and organized group. After losing 0-4 to powerhouse Aomori Yamada (Aomori) in the summer national high school inter-high school semi-finals, they worked to strengthen their defense. GK captain Kentaro Ikushima (3rd year) recalled, "I was overwhelmed by Aomori Yamada's defense. Today, we decided to play that defense together." In the final, midfielders such as Genrigo (same) and Shuya Kikuchi (same), who have decided to join J1 Tokushima, blocked Higashi Fujieda's attacks with their dedicated defense. The amount of exercise was enough to make Osamu Kawaguchi say, "I think the players ran the most in their football career." It was a few months ago that he began to strengthen his defense in earnest. The maturity of the team has more room to grow than it did two years ago. Raise the level of defense one more step and aim for the national championship for the first time in two years. ▽Finals Shizuoka Gakuen 2 0-0 0 Fujieda Higashi 2-0 ▽Scorers [Shizu] Ito, Furukawa
