Goeido Keeps This Interesting


Goeido sacrificed his left shoulder to pull off the impressive win over a stunned Hakuho. Kaisei had lost earlier in another close match with Aoiyama so a Hakuho win would have brought him much closer to his 7th straight yusho. Instead, Goeido’s kubinage ensures more drama tomorrow. Hakuho faces a desperate Kotoshogiku who needs two wins to avoid being kadoban in July. Kaisei will face a pumped up Goeido, who’ll be anxious to get his kachi-koshi, tomorrow.

Following Hakuho and Kaisei are six wrestlers led by Kisenosato and Terunofuji as Harumafuji dropped another one to Myogiryu. Takayasu, Ikioi, Okinoumi, and Yoshikaze round out the 9-3 wrestlers. WIth Terunofuji facing Takayasu tomorrow, we’re guaranteed to have at least one 10-3 rikishi.

Endo got his fourth win, ensuring he’ll stay in the makuuchi in July. I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t take the last three days of this tournament off. Amuru faces Fujiazuma tomorrow, so he might have a better chance at finally getting his first kachi-koshi in the top division.
