Hikkake. Kotoeko needed the desperate sidestep/yank that is the "arm-grabbing force out" to get a key win over Ichiyamamoto.
Match of the Day
Maegashira #1 East Takayasu versus Maegashira #5 West Nishikifuji
This was the key match on paper coming in, and the two delivered. Takayasu once again got the strong initial blast at the tachiai, but Nishikifuji wasn't overwhelmed. Nishikifuji managed to keep moving sideways instead of backwards and looked like he may pull out a throw or side thrust down. Takayasu was more than up for it, though, and kept going until he shoved him out to stay one win back.
