Heungkuk Life Insurance has entered a new supervision system. From the first match, internal competition was fierce.
Heungkuk Life Insurance won with a set score of 3- (25-19, 25-17, 28-26) in the last match of the 5th round against Korea Expressway Corporation (Highway Corporation) in the 2022-23 Dodram V League Women’s Division held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 23rd. Reaped. He recorded the 23rd win (7th loss) of the season and accumulated 69 points. The difference between Hyundai E&C (62 points) and second place widened to 7 points.
On this day, Heungkuk Life Insurance played its first game under the guidance of new coach Marcello Abondanza. Heungkuk Life Insurance, which sacked coach Kwon Soon-chan in early January, has since digested 11 games as an agency system. They fought hard with 8 wins and 3 losses, and rose to the top spot alone. However, in order to prepare for the 6th round and the postseason (PS), where the concentration of the game changes, the agency system had to be ended. In the end, they recruited director Abondanza, a master of the European stage. He is also a leader who worked with Kim Yeon-kyung when he was playing for Fenerbahce.
Head coach Abondanza said before the game, “(I will make a lot of changes) so that the players do not cause confusion.” Standing on the court wearing a Heungkuk Life training suit, he encouraged the players with a fighting spirit throughout.
There are players who have a sense of crisis just by changing the manager. These are players who have not yet established themselves. In Heungkuk Life Insurance, Lee Won-jeong and Kim Da-sol are the main setters, and Kim Da-eun and Kim Mi-yeon are competing for the third striker position.
The striker who started in the first set was Kim Da-eun. When he scored three points, Kim Mi-yeon, who came out at the end of the first set, also showed dynamic movements and contributed to the ‘scoring battle’.
Setter Lee Won-jeong received applause for her fighting spirit in the beginning of the second set. On 5-9, Kim Mi-yeon digged the opponent Park Jung-ah’s quick open, and he, who was in the front line, kicked the ball off the court, which was about to land in an empty position. Kim Yeon-kyung passed the ball over the net.
Lee Won-jeong, who had fallen on the court, immediately stood up and headed in front of the net with agile movements. Kim Yeon-kyung was worried about a collision, so she slid hard enough to look back, but Lee Won-jung focused on the game right away. He then went to the front of the right net and attempted to block Park Jung-ah’s attack. Although he conceded a goal, Won-Jung Lee’s movement during these few seconds was very impressive.
In the middle of the struggling 3rd set, coach Abondanza changed the flow of the game by replacing the field commander with Kim Da-sol. Other players such as Kim Chae-yeon and Park Soo-yeon also used it.
After the game, coach Abondanza said, “It was impressive that he did not give up when he gave up the lead in the third set.” Next, Kim Da-eun’s performance was worse than the GS Caltex match on the 19th, but Kim Mi-yeon, who started the second set, was evaluated as showing good performance. He even praised veteran libero Kim Hae-ran for his fighting spirit.
Abondanza’s contract runs until the 2024-25 season. There is a possibility of Kim Yeon-kyung’s retirement. It is Heungkuk Life Insurance that must also promote the team’s rebuilding. Often, when a foreign leader is recruited, a ‘zero base’ evaluation is made. It can be a motivation for Heungkuk Life Insurance players. 카지노사이트
