Takarafuji lost to Takayasu in the head-to-head bout to stay in the lead. The senior sanyaku leadership contingent all won but Goeido lost to Shodai who picks up his kachi-koshi with four days left. Hakuho picked up a yorikiri win over Kaisei while Harumafuji’s quick throw of Ichinojo was an anti-climactic end to the day. I blinked and missed it. He didn’t even do his half-henka and still sent the monster rolling.
