Yato vs Tochinokuni
Yato slipped here but used his slip to leverage a throw to send Tochinokuni rolling off the dohyo.
Kasugasato vs Kainokura
Battle of the 3-0's here with Kasuga 2-0 all time over Kaino. False start to start here. Kasuga went down hard here.
Tomonofuji vs Kurenishiki
Weak tachi-ai here for Tomono to take a very easy win on the spiritless Kurenishiki. Tomonofuji goes to 1-3.
Isenohama vs Motokiyama
Sandanme action here with both at 1-2. Odd tie up here with both men going to their side with Motokiyama biting the dust to go to 1-3.
Tokiarashi vs Kirizakura
Battle of the 2-1's. Toki edged out this rough one as Kiri was hanging by a thread multiple times.
Oseumi vs Tamanotaka
More 2-1's here. This went near two minutes before Tama hiptossed Oseumi down. Oseumi wobbled alot but they stalemated mostly.
Shunba vs Nakazono
0-3's here. They met quick and Shunba let off making Nakazono dive face first into the dirt.
Rikishin vs Chiyohayate
2-1's in their first meeting. False start at first. Chiyo is very thin. Chiyo tried to use his speed but turned his back and got pushed out.
Koryuyama vs Chiyoshuho
2-1's here. False start to get us going, then another. Koryu won here.
Toofuji vs Akatsuki
Akatsuki is one of the few one character sumo names. Too is a big one. Both guys fought hard here until Too got tired out and got pushed out.
Saio vs Wakanofuji
1-2's here. Very nice defense by Wakano here to save himself and win.
Sd83w Kototsubasa (2-1) vs Sd80w Ryuozan (2-1)
Very quick one with Ryuozan slapping low on the stomach to win.
Sd79w Terunosato (0-3) vs Sd76w Kozan (0-3)
The singer is wearing out here as his voice is cracking. The crowd even laughed after his final note! Then they cheered him for trying. Gotta love sumo. Teru is a big boy and he dominated here just overpowering Kozan for the very quick push out.
Sd75e Takatenshu (1-2) vs Sd81e Kotohayato (1-2)
The singer got replaced here. Poor guy. Someone buy him a beer. Koto pulled down his opponent and he did a rough flop on the floor.
Sd73e Haruzakura (2-1) vs Sd77w Hokutotsuru (2-1)
Hokuto pushed too hard and got his momentum used his against him as he did a great dive forward. Hey, he tried.
Sd72e Gorikiyama (1-2) vs Sd74e Kiriarashi (1-2)
Ouch! Kiri did a nasty split in the efforts of putting down his opponent and failing. Not a fun way to lose.
Sd70e Yoshifuji (2-1) vs Sd71e Daishokai (2-1)
Strong tachi-ai with Yoshi getting hit hard and never recovering to take the loss.
Sd71w Azumasato (3-0) vs Sd66w Tokushuzan (3-0)
Great sumo by Azuma. He was getting overpowered and finally went to his side to use Toku's power and speed against him to get the W. Nice win.
Sd65e Aoimaru (2-1) vs Sd69e Tochikasuga (2-1)
Long one here with Aoimaru finally pushing Tochika off at around 1 minute.
Sd63e Suekawa (1-2) vs Sd65w Daishodo (1-2)
Quick one here with Dai getting the win.
Sd60e Miura (2-1) vs Sd63w Daishowaka (2-1)
Daishowaka is frickin' tall. Miura edged out a really gutsy win here as he was on the edge with one leg then switched his leg inside to toss Diashowaka. Even had a monoii(decision) here. Oops, after the decision they gave it to Daishowaka. Wish I had a replay on that as it was too close.
Sd62e Fujiarashi (1-2) vs Sd58w Koriyama (1-2)
False start by Kori to start here. Fuji got off balance going backwards and Kori pushed him down on his chest to win.
Sd62w Komanokuni (3-0) vs Sd56w Shinohara (3-0)
Shinohara fought very hard but Koma was just too fat and used to his size to win. Plus he landed on him for extra pain.
Sd57w Isshinryu (2-1) vs Sd54w Kawaraumi (2-1)
Too much power for Isshi as he ran himself out of the ring.
Sd55e Dangan (1-2) vs Sd52w Yotsugamine (1-2)
Both guys wobbled here before Yotsu pushed him hard out.
Sd57e Araumago (0-3) vs Sd51w Yuki (0-3)
Nice effort by both guys before Arau slipped out during a throw. Arau has some seriously ripped legs. The top half though, melty would be the word for it.
Sd49e Tsurunoumi (1-2) vs Sd51e Kasugamine (1-2)
Long one here with both guys breathing loudly with Kasuga taking it. Tsuru finally went for a move but just got pushed out.
Sd49w Sotenryu (2-1) vs Sd47w Fukunokuni (2-1)
Close one here with Fuku falling first.
Sd46w Kotodairyu (1-2) vs Sd44w Dewanosato (1-2)
Nice aggressive sumo here by Dewa as he pushed his man everywhere before pushing him out.
Sd45e Takakasuga (2-1) vs Sd42w Tochinobori (2-1
False start by Taka. Fun match with Taka trying to evade his opponent. But he got slapped and then pushed far out.
Sd41e Genkaiho (1-2) vs Sd44e Kasugashima (1-2)
Very close one here with Kasuga winning near the edge.
Sd39e Okoryu (2-1) vs Sd41w Shibahara (2-1)
Shiba eliminated himself here as he went for the throw and went too far down and fell.
Sd37e Owaka (1-2) vs Sd40e Ryusei (1-2)
Quick one here with Ryusei pushing straight ahead and pushing Owaka out.
Sd37w Fujinohana (2-1) vs Sd34w Takamiryu (2-1)
Taka got the win here with the push out
