I faced an opportunity to rise to the top. Women’s professional volleyball Heungkuk Life Insurance will play a home game against IBK Industrial Bank (hereinafter referred to as Industrial Bank of Korea) in the 2022-23 season Dodram V League at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium on the 11th.
If Heungkuk Life Insurance wins against Industrial Bank of Korea on this day, it will beat Hyundai E&C and finally take first place. Hyundai E&C lost 2-3 at the end of a close match to a full set in an away game against Pepper Savings Bank held at Yeomju Gymnasium in Gwangju the previous day (10th).
Hyundai E&C maintained first place, but only got 1 point in hand, and it became 21 wins, 6 losses, and 61 points. If the second place Heungkuk Life Insurance (20 wins, 6 losses, 60 points) does not lose to IBK, the first place will change. Even if Heungkuk Life Insurance beats IBK 3-2, it beats Hyundai E&C because it gets 2 points. 안전놀이터
If Hongkuk Life Insurance loses to Industrial Bank of Korea after a close match in full sets, the points will be the same in Hyangdae Construction. However, they are ahead in sets. However, at this time, Hyundai Engineering & Construction maintains the first place because it leads by one in the number of wins.
Heungkuk Life Insurance’s acting manager Kim Dae-gyeong said, “I can’t think of the previous games and all the remaining games in vain,” at a meeting with reporters who visited the scene ahead of the IBK match. The coaching staff and support staff all know it well.”
Acting Kim said, “I think IBK will put Kim Su-ji and Kim Hee-jin in front to check Kim Yeon-kyung’s attack.” He said to pay more attention.”
He added, “I played Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s game the day before.” There is one more thing that Acting President Kim emphasized in the IBK exhibition.
It is blocking. Acting Kim said, “I think blocking must be followed in order to save the opportunity to score consecutively.” There is a reason he mentioned blocking.
Heungkuk Life Insurance is inferior to IBK in team blocking. In this category, Industrial Bank of Korea recorded 246 blocks per 10 days (an average of 2.485 per set) and is ranked 4th. On the other hand, Heungkuk Life Insurance is 6th with 203 blocks (average 2.030 per set).
Of course, Acting Kim did not simply emphasize the number of successes in blocking. Effective blocking, which can lead to an attack, is also important.
IBK ranks first in effective blocking with 776. Heungkuk Life Insurance is fifth with 697. On the other hand, Acting Kim appointed Lee Won-jung, not Kim Da-sol, as the starting setter that day.
Acting Kim has been sending Lee Won-jung to the court first since the 5th round. In the two games prior to the 5th round, Lee Won-jeong started and Kim Da-sol played as a backup. However, Heungkuk Life Insurance felt difficulties at the start of the first set with Industrial Bank of Korea on this day. The score gap widened from the beginning of the set.
IBK had Kim Hee-jin, Pyo Seung-ju, Choi Jeong-min, and Santana (Puerto Rico) playing evenly, while Heungkuk Life Insurance had a hard time unraveling the attack, with Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena (Bosnia) tied to one point each until the second half of the set. IBK won the set by winning 20-9 in the second half of the set. In the end, IBK took the first set 25-12.
