Day 14 results and day 15 pairings

Recommended Posts

Ozeki Kaio had his second strong bout in a row and won against Yokozuna Asashoryu with very strong uwatenage. Ozeki Chiyotaikai passed up earlier with a clear loss against Musoyama on the BIG opportunity to stay in the yusho race and force a playoff. Musoyama still has a lot to fight for tomorrow against Kaio as a loss will mean demotion to Sekiwake for him. Tochiazuma avoided this fate already with a win against Miyabiyama and will stay Ozeki for at least two more basho.

Akinoshima lost to Iwakiyama after a real fight with yoritaoshi and is make-koshi now as the Maku-jiri rikishi which bodes not well for his fate. His only chance is to get a big break from the banzuke gyoji, which isn't entirely out of reach since Takanotsuru, Takanowaka and Shimotori should get demoted already and only Kasuganishiki, Tochisakae and Tamakasuga are good for promotion, possibly Kakizoe with a win tomorrow. But it's unlikely.

In Juryo Tamakasuga passed up on a really big opportunity to win the yusho outright as he had Futeno on the brink of defeat at least twice. But Futeno refused to lose and snatched away the win securing kachi-koshi. Now Tamakasuga has to win one out of possibly two tomorrow against Kakizoe to get the yusho. Tochisakae won in his first real bout after coming back, but his win against Ushiomaru looked more like Aikido. Komahikari got his demotion loss today while Kaito fought good against Kotonomine and has to win tomorrow in as real a Makushita-Juryo exchange bout against Kotoiwakuni as is possible.

*crosses fingers* Man tonight is the night for Dejima, Please let it happen. Something tells me Kaio will blow it tonight, Musoyama will keep his Ozeki status or Asashoryu will beat him in a playoff. Ofcourse it all could be irrelevant if the Ypkozuna does what he is supposed to and beat Chiyotaikai.

J8w    Wakakosho (6-8)    okuridashi    J1w    Oginishiki (3-5-6)

Congrats to Wakakosho for continuing his now 16-basho streak of always getting between 6 and 8 wins...I'd say he's the embodiment of "perennial Juryo" these days. (Blinking...)
