SENDAI, Japan (AP) — Brazilian Wilson scored a late winner on Saturday as Vegalta Sendai beat Kashiwa Reysol 2-1 for its first win of the J-League campaign.
Toshihiro Matsushita put Sendai ahead with a header early in the first half at Yurtec Stadium, but Leandro Domingues leveled for the visitors with a right-footed shot from 11 meters out shortly after the break.
Wilson sealed the win with a header four minutes from time as last season's runner-up improved to four points after three matches.

Marinos' defender Yuzo Kurihara opened the scoring in the final minute of the first half and Hiroki Yamada leveled for the visitors in first-half stoppage time.
Jubilo's South Korean midfielder Jung Woo-young was sent off in the 69th minute for a rough tackle on Marquinhos, drawing a straight red from referee Hiroyoshi Takayama.
Cerezo Osaka also stayed undefeated after a 1-0 win over FC Tokyo courtesy of a second-half goal by midfielder Hotaru Yamaguchi. Tokyo lost for the first time this season.
