The defense of Korea Expressway Corporation, which Im Myung-ok and Moon Jeong-won are holding on to, was solid.
Korea Expressway Corporation won with a set score of 3-1 (25-16, 28-26, 29-27, 25-19) against IBK Industrial Bank in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Round 5 held at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium on the 4th. did.
Korea Expressway Corporation showed great success with Catherine Bell (registered name Catbell) scoring 29 points, Park Jung-ah 23 points, and Bae Yuna 12 points.
The attackers showed a good look, but there are two players who silently played their part behind the scenes and led the team to victory. Lim Myung-ok and Moon Jeong-won are the main characters.
The two players received 65 of the 82 receives recorded by the Korea Expressway Corporation (Myeong-Ok Lim, 24, Jung-Won Moon, 41). Among them, Im Myung-ok succeeded in receiving 23 times, and Moon Jeong-won did not record a single error and showed a stable appearance.
In terms of receiving efficiency, Moon Jeong-won recorded 56.1% and Im Myung-ok 45.83%, making them the two players who perfectly played the role of the starting point of the attack.
Lim Myung-ok and Moon Jeong-won tried 32 times and 21 times, respectively, in the dig, and showed an amazing performance, succeeding 29 times and 18 times, respectively. Thanks to the two players running their bodies throughout the game and saving the ball, Korea Expressway Corporation won four consecutive victories.
Lim Myung-ok, who we met after the game, said, “When I met IBK Industrial Bank, I thought I could play a difficult game because I had a weak image. Still, he thought of taking advantage of the home game, and because he received a lot of support, he was able to win with strength.”
Moon Jeong-won also expressed his joy, saying, “I thought we were playing difficult matches every game, but it feels good to get 3 points.”
Korea Expressway Corporation, which scored 44 points with the victory on the day, widened the gap with 4th place KGC Ginseng Corporation (35 points) by 9 points, putting it in an advantageous position to advance to spring volleyball. In response, Im Myung-ok said, “I know that no one expected us to go to spring volleyball at the beginning of the season. It feels good to break that expectation. Right now we are on a 4-game winning streak, and we got 3 points in all 4 games. I don’t think that allowed me to climb to an advantageous position.”
The two players are showing how they are holding hands before Korea Expressway Corporation serves. When Lim Myung-ok said, “Even when we first won, we always held hands,” Moon Jeong-won said, “It can be explained in words, but when we hold hands in a really strange way, it feels like we are connected.”
Then, when the two players were asked the secret to defense, a heartwarming scene was created in which they exchanged compliments. First, Im Myung-ok said, “I think it’s true that you have to have confidence, but you also have to have some innate qualities. However, Jung Won-i started receiving late, but when I see him doing so well, he seems to be born. Sometimes I want to rest, but my sister goes out to exercise. She sees and learns a lot from the side,” he replied.
Lim Myung-ok (61.83%) and Moon Jeong-won (55.56%), who are in charge of Korea Expressway Corporation’s receive, are ranked first and second in receiving efficiency in the league. There was also sacrifice for each other to show such a good record. “The two of us talk a lot when we usually play. Myung-ok Lim said, “If I’m not feeling well, I ask Won-won to help me a little, and if Jung-won is not feeling well, I ask him to help me.”
Moon Jeong-won, who is currently focusing on defense with Im Myung-ok, is an apposite spiker for the team. As he is a striker, he might want to take a higher attack share. “I have a desire to take more attack share. But now, Catbell, (Park) Jung-ah, and middle blockers are scoring a lot in offense. I think it’s a situation where you have to play defense. In particular, at important moments, we need to be more helpful in defense,” he said.
It is Korea Expressway Corporation that has only 10 games left in the 2022-2023 regular season. Im Myung-ok said, “Most of our team are experienced players. If we go to the playoffs, we think we have a lot of potential and our goal is to go to the playoffs.”
Moon Jeong-won continued, “My goal was to go to the playoffs, but now my goal is to play in the championship game. In the beginning, I thought it was difficult, but after playing a few games recently, I thought I could be greedy enough,” he said, clenching his fists.
Let’s see if Korea Expressway Corporation, which recently won four consecutive victories against Hyundai E&C, GS Caltex, KGC Ginseng Corporation, and IBK Industrial Bank, can fulfill the wishes of the two players. 안전놀이터
