14th Day: YOKOZUNA STOPS HAKUHO TO LEVEL IT
The Emperor's Cup didn't permit Ozeki Hakuho to possess Haru-Basho title at Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium Saturday when Yokozuna Asashoryu beat Hakuho to level the result, two-loss in the 14th day of March Grand Sumo Tournament. At their first contact, Hakuho moved quickly to carry the Yokozuna to the edge of the dohyo ground but the Yokozuna, not allowing the Ozeki grab the mawashi belt, could made him kneel on the dohyo after changing the body.
Tomorrow, the Final day, the Yokozuna will meet Ozeki Chiyotaikai while Hakuho faces fellow Kotooshu. I expect that two-rikishi will win each and advence to extra match to win the Championship.
