If they both win, the first place in the winning points will change.

On the 18th, Korea Expressway Corporation and Pepper Savings Bank meet in the 5th round women’s game of the ‘2022-23 season Dodram V-League’ held at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium.

The road construction’s current performance is 16 wins and 12 losses with 47 accumulated points. Surprisingly, it is a stable team that has not been greatly shaken by the ranking fight this season. Heungkuk Life Insurance (63 points, 21 wins and 7 losses) and Hyundai Engineering & Construction (62 points, 21 wins and 8 losses) have been fighting for the lead all along, and KGC Ginseng Corporation (43 points), GS Caltex (39 points), and IBK Industrial Bank (37 points) is a situation where they are fighting back and forth to occupy the last spot in spring volleyball with a not so large score gap. 

In particular, on the 14th, the previous game, the Korea Expressway Corporation strengthened the atmosphere by winning 3 points against Hyundai E&C. The successive power departures and breathing with the newly recruited Montaño were good at digging into the gaps against Hyundai E&C, which was not perfect.

Interestingly, there is nothing far ahead of Hyundai E&C in terms of indicators. The offensive score fell to 55-62, and the offense was 28-14, twice as much as Hyundai E&C. Other than that, the overall indicators such as sets, receives, and digs are rather poor.

At that time, Catbell scored 22 points (attack success rate 38.57%), Park Jung-ah scored 18 points, and Bae Yoo-na scored 10 points. 

However, with a 19-16 lead in the 4th set, middle blocker Jung Dae-young suffered an ankle injury and left the court. It’s not a serious injury, but it’s important not to overdo it as I’m in charge of the core of the midfield with Bae Yoo-na, and spring volleyball is right in front of me. 

Coach Jong-min Kim expressed that it was an unsatisfactory game, saying, “The content of the game is not good, and the setter’s choice went the opposite way several times in scoring chances.” 

However, Park Jung-ah’s recent performance has improved significantly, and she is showing a good attack success rate in the avant-garde. In the previous game, he scored 11 of 18 open attacks, achieving an attack success rate of 61.11%. Moon Jeong-won and Lim Myung-ok’s defense were also good. However, Bae Yoo-na had some ups and downs, so she occasionally wavered in the game. 

The record against Pepper Savings Bank, the 5th opposing team, is 3 wins and 1 loss. 

In terms of relative power, Expressway Corporation is far superior, but Pepper Savings Bank is called ‘spicy pepper’ after beating GS Caltex and Hyundai E&C in January and February. 

However, on the 15th, the previous game, he was defeated by Heungkuk Life Insurance with a set score of 0-3, revealing that he was undoubtedly weak against a strong team with no gaps. 

At that time, only Nia Reed scored 22 points (attack success rate 39.62%), but the domestic team did not exceed 5 points. Park Kyung-hyun scored 5 points, Choi Ga-eun 4 points, and Lee Han-bi 3 points. 토토사이트

Except for Nia Reed’s back attack with a 50% chance, the entire team did not perform well. However, it is necessary to consider that the available players are too thin. Also, considering that injured players are holding on to their shoulders or knees and fighting spirit, a decline in performance is inevitable.

Looking at the team indicators, blocking 3-5, serve 1-5, attack score 46-37, etc. were pushed out of the overall performance. There were also many remnants of the match room. Until the middle of the game, they rubbed their shoulders, and then gradually gave up momentum to the opponent. In an interview after the game, acting manager Lee Kyung-soo pointed out the defeat, saying, “I should have had a lot of effective blocking, but it didn’t work out, so I was dragged around by the setter.”

Lee Han-bi’s shoulder pain is also a concern. The blow is even greater because he has devoted himself to being in charge of the major axis of the Pepper Savings Bank attack. 

As long as he is not greedy for spring volleyball, the current goal is to complete the season safely while adjusting the condition of the players well. 

Meanwhile, Pepper Savings Bank announced preparations for the 23-24 season by appointing coach Aachen Kim (37) as a new command tower on the 17th. The rest of the season is led by this agency system.
