I actually want Eri to lose any head-to-head confrontations with Yakumo, since her chances of getting together with Harima increase every time she loses. Every time Eri loses, Kobayashi builds up sympathy for her character, and the more sympathy readers have Eri, the less likely it is School Rumble can have a happy ending without Eri getting Harima.
