Sumo Nagoya Basho 2013 Day 8

Sumo Nagoya Basho 2013 Day 8

J12e    Tochihiryu (2-5) vs  J13w    Endo (6-1)

Endo was aggressive and got an easy force out to win this.
J6e     Sotairyu (2-5) vs   J11w    Takanoyama (1-6)
 Sotairyu was a little off balance and Tak got around him to push him out.
J4e     Kagamio (5-2)  vs   J9w     Osunaarashi (4-3)

Osuna knocked Kaga with a good thrust and Kaga went forward, so Osuna threw him down.
J7e     Asahisho (4-3)  vs    J3w     Tochinowaka (5-2)

Asa surprised Tochino with some nice shots and had him rocking, but Tochino got back to normal and was able to power him out. Tochino is 2 away from his KK and should be in the 1st division next tournament.
O2e     Kakuryu (5-2)  vs   K1e     Shohozan (2-5)
Kak sidestepped Sho, had him reeling, nailed some shots and then sent him flying forward in the other direction.
S1w     Goeido (2-5)  vs   O1w     Kotoshogiku (5-2)

Go put up a good fight and almost had Koto out with a throw but Koto recovered and swung him down hard.
O1e     Kisenosato (4-3) vs  M4e     Kyokutenho (3-4)

Kisen had a strong bearhug in and Kyoku was mostly a long for the ride before going down.
K1w     Tokitenku (1-6)   vs    O2w     Kotooshu (6-1)
Koto had Toki on the side and Toki went for a leg sweep but failed and went down.
Y1e     Hakuho (7-0)   vs   M3w     Aminishiki (2-5)

Ami kinda froze on the tachi ai and waited for Hakuho. Hakuho came hard and Aminishiki had him side stepped and on the edge. Hakuho did a great spin move on the edge and took him out for a great win. Hakuho gets his kachikoshi, being the first wrestler to do so.
M3e     Chiyotairyu (5-2)  vs   Y1w     Harumafuji (6-1)

Chiyo steamrolled Harumafuji and got a mostly easy win as Harumafuji seemed not all there. Harumafuji now probably can't win the tournament.
