Sumo January Hatsu Basho Day 11
Sd42e Orora (1-4) vs Sd49e Tsurunoumi (1-4)
Orora wins again! 2-4 baby! He looked like he was out and was ready to give up but he countered, turned his oppponent around and put him out!
Ms32e Sakigake (4-1) vs Ms38e Osunaarashi (4-1)
Osuna took the loss here. He was super aggressive, but his opponent held his ground and he slipped down to lose. Rough loss here.
J5e Takanoyama (5-5) vs J10w Akiseyama (5-5)
Akiseyama is a big boy and may have the floppiest chest in sumo. He was too big for Takanoyama and put him outside with ease.
J1e Jokoryu (7-3) vs J2w Sagatsukasa (6-4)
Good back and forth effort by both guys here with action all over the place. Sagat accidently stepped out in the heat of the battle and lost here.
M9e Tokitenku (6-4) vs M15e Tochinowaka (8-2)
Toki won here after an even battle. Tochino just couldn't compete strength wise and the leverage wasn't on his side.
M7e Takayasu (8-2) vs M14e Shotenro (7-3)
Taka got the win here using Shotenro's momentum against him
M6e Tochinoshin (7-3) vs M14w Takarafuji (8-2)
Pure strength with by Tochi to get the win. He simply lifted Fuji out for the win in no time.
Myogiryu vs Baruto
Nice show of force by Baruto to this time in no time at all. Didn't hurt that he got an extra push in to send his opponent flying as Baruto needs to win every match now to get back to Ozeki. Can he do it?
O1e Kisenosato (8-2) vs M3w Kaisei (4-6)
Kaisei almost had it! He had Kisen by the edge, but Kisen disengaged and sidestepped for the win. Smart win for Kisen.
O2e Kotooshu (6-4) vs Y1w Harumafuji (10-0)
Sad loss for Kotooshu today. He literally slipped on a banana peel, falling straight on his butt for the loss. That's how you embarass yourself.
Y1e Hakuho (9-1) vs O2w Kotoshogiku (6-4)
Koto fought hard and had Hakuho slipping way back before Hakuho put in a nice stance and drove Koto out. Fun match.

8-3: Kakuryu, Tochinoshin, Takarafuji, Jokoryu and Tochinowaka
