Sumo September Aki Basho 2013 Day 11

Sumo September Aki Basho 2013 Day 11

J9e     Daido (4-6)  vs J12w    Takanoyama (4-6)
Good win by Tak here. He did his usual side stepping routine and swung by Daido's belt. The leverage was too much and Daido went out. Tak needs to win 3 out of the next 4 to avoid a likely demotion to Maukshita.

J4e     Osunaarashi (8-2) vs J11w    Terunofuji (8-2)
Good match here. Osuna was highly aggressive and nailed Teru many times. However, he kind of got stuck after not being able to put the nail in the coffin and Teru hit a fabulous throw to put him down. A lot of people think Terunofuji is a star of the future and  he's only lost 3 matches or more 3 times since 2011.

M8e     Fujiazuma (2-8) vs M11w    Tochinowaka (5-5)
Toch got pushed back and was standing straight up to get an easy loss.

M13e    Endo (7-3) vs M6w     Kyokutenho (7-3)
Endo threw down Kyokutenho in  a quick one to get his kachikoshi winning record. His final record depends a lot on who he gets paired with in the final days, but 10 wins should be easily doable and 11 or 12 would be great.

O2e     Kotoshogiku (6-4) vs M3w     Chiyotairyu (3-7)
Chiyo slipped from the start and Koto came at him hard, making him slip more. Koto then threw him down for an easy win.
M3e     Takarafuji (1-9) vs O1w     Kakuryu (7-3)
Kak had his way with Takarafuji and Takara couldn't really do anything to him. He got slapped around and pushed around before going out.
O1e     Kisenosato (8-2) vs M4w     Kaisei (6-4)
We started off with a power tachi ai and from there, Kaisei never really got going. Kisen kept going towards the side and eventually won from a push from the side in an easy win.
S1w     Goeido (7-3) vs Y1w     Harumafuji (8-2)
 Harumafuji came at Goeido like an absolute animal. He was so aggressive and forceful here. Go didn't really know what to do and couldn't offer much before taking the loss. Good showing by Harumafuji here, but I just wish he would have done this earlier.
Y1e     Hakuho (9-1)  vs  S1e     Myogiryu (5-5)
Hakuho absolutely threw Myo hard to the ground to win this. Hak didn't have good footing here and Myo actually pushed him around quite a bit and looked good until he got tossed like a child.
