Sumo Natsu Basho 2013 Day 8

Sumo Natsu Basho 2013 Day 8

J8e     Tochinowaka (4-3) vs J14e    Chiyoo (4-3)
Tochino struggled a little but by the end, he got some pushes in and did a big push to win.

J10w    Takanoyama (5-2) vs  J7w     Tochihiryu (3-4)

Tochi threw tons of chest slaps and got Takanoyama out easy.

M5e     Shohozan (5-2)  vs M8e     Tokitenku (5-2)
Shohozan put forth a great effort here but Toki pushed him by the chin and he went out.

M1e     Myogiryu (4-3) vs S1w     Baruto (3-4)
There was no match. Baruto got injured the day before during the fall with Kisenosato and I guess has left the a tournament. This was a shame.

O2e     Kotoshogiku (5-2) vs M2w     Tochinoshin (0-7)

Koto got in close, hooked himself around Tochi and  moved him out. He's done the same technique for the whole basho, but it has worked.

K1w     Okinoumi (1-6) vs O1w     Kakuryu (7-0)
This went nearly 2 minutes before Kakuryu got a grip and started moving in a circle to swing Oki down.

O1e     Kisenosato (7-0) vs S1e     Goeido (5-2)
Kisen brought Goeido in close, gripped him and then easily pushed him out.

K1e     Tochiozan (2-5) vs O2w     Kotooshu (4-3)
Koto sidestepped Tochi and hooked his arm before pushing him out.
Y1e     Hakuho (7-0) vs M3w     Aran (3-4)
Neither man had much going on here until about 40 seconds in when Hakuho got a grip and pushed Aran out.

M4w     Toyonoshima (4-3) vs Y1w     Harumafuji (5-2)
Harumafuji was incredibly explosive and pushed Toyo by his chin to get a very easy win.
