[Professional Volleyball] Woori Card, which does not waver despite the chaotic situation… The spring volleyball competition continues

Woori Card, which had not won for nearly a month, 메이저사이트 defeated Korean Air and escaped from a losing streak.

Woori Card won a complete victory with a set score of 3-0 (25-23, 28-26, 25-20) in a confrontation with Korean Air in the 5th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Men’s Division held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 17th. It was a tougher match than expected.

Woori Card (15 wins, 14 losses, 44 points), which tasted its first win since the match against OK Financial Group on the 22nd of last month, ended its 5-game losing streak and regained its 3rd place. KEPCO (13 wins, 15 losses, 42 points), which had no games, fell to 4th place. On the other hand, leading Korean Air (20 wins, 9 losses, 59 points), which failed to acquire points, had a ‘red flag’ turned on for the lead.

There were 2 sets of winners, and 1 set of unshakable Woori Cards

had mixed joys and sorrows with a slight difference. Woori Card, who tied the score with Song Hee-chae’s sub ace in 20-21, took the lead with Lincoln Williams’ (registered name Lincoln)’s back attacking offense. In 24-23, Na Kyung-bok, who scored with a fast break from C, overcame Korean Air’s pursuit and ended the first set.

The winner of this match was the 2nd set. Korean Air, which was dragged to 17-11, tried to reverse the atmosphere by putting Lim Dong-hyuk in place of Lincoln. Director Tommy Tilikhainen’s choice was right. In 18-13, he started the chase with 3 points in a row, and in 22-19, he scored 4 points, including 2 sub-aces by Jung Ji-seok.

When Korean Air, which overturned the game, reached the set point first, Woori Card made a deuce with the score of Riverman Agamez (registered name Agamez). And in 26-26, the scene in question came out. At the end of the rally, Agamez scored, but Jung Ji-seok injured his finger in the process.

After the ball hit the court, referee Nam Young-soo confirmed the injury and belatedly declared a replay. Woori Card players and coach Shin Young-cheol continued to protest strongly for a while about the score not being recognized, but the decision was not changed.

It was possible to be shaken by an incomprehensible decision, but Woori Card did not care and continued the game. Agamez’s back attack succeeded in reversing, and Song Hee-chae’s spy serve landed exquisitely in the corner of the court, ending the second set as it was.

In the 3rd set, the uptrend of Woori Card continued. Thanks to 3 points in a row at 14-11, they ran away by 6 points and kept the lead until the end. On the other hand, Korean Air also exerted their strength, such as Jeong Ji-seok, who had been replaced at the end of the second set, returned to the court, but the match ended with Lincoln’s rear attack mistake at 24-20. Agamez (21 points) is the player who scored the most points among both teams of

Woori Card, which has been able to continue spring volleyball hopes .

Before the game on the 17th, in the 5th round, the attack success rate (45%) was somewhat sluggish, with less than 50%, but he brushed off his regrets against Korean Air. On this day, Agamez’ attack success rate was 61.29%.

Na Gyeong-bok (13 points), who scored whenever it was important, and Song Hee-chae (9 points), who single-handedly caught 3 blocks, supported Agamez. In addition, Kim Wan-jong (7 points) and Lee Sang-hyun (5 points), each recording 3 blocks, contributed to the team’s victory. Both teams showed a big difference in the number of team blocks (9 for Woori Card and 2 for Korean Air).

Woori Card, who struggled to escape from the losing streak, took a breath. While meeting Hyundai Capital on the 21st (Round 5, Cheonan) and on the 24th (Round 6, Jangchung), it seems important to gain points in these two games to gain an advantage over KEPCO and OK Financial Group, which are competing for third place. .

On the other hand, Korean Air, which took a two-day break after ending its 4-game losing streak in the KB Insurance match on the 14th, was unable to use its strength due to lethargic performance. It was decisive that Lincoln (11 points) was sluggish, and Jung Ji-seok (16 points) could not laugh because of his mistakes (8 points) even though he scored the most points in the team.

Depending on the results of the KB Insurance-Hyundai Capital match to be held on the 18th, the gap between leading Korean Air and second-ranking Hyundai Capital may further narrow. This is a scenario that Korean Air does not want. It was the biggest crisis since Tillikainen took over.
