“If (Park) Jin-woo plays an active role from the first set, won’t it be easy to solve the game?” said Seungjang with a smile.
KB Insurance played a match against Woori Card in the 5th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League men’s division held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 31st. Although they gave up the first and second sets, KB Insurance showed concentration 먹튀검증 in the second half and finally won with a set score of 3-2 (23-25, 20-25, 34-32, 25-21, 15-10).
For KB Insurance, Andres Villena (registered name Villena) scored 43 points. Hwang Kyung-min and Han Seong-jeong gained 14 points and 10 points, respectively, and found vitality in the attack. Park Jin-Woo’s 9 blocks also played a big role. On the other hand, for Woori Card, Riverman Agamez (registered name Agamez) scored 31 points, including 5 blocks, Kim Ji-han 19 points, and Na Gyeong-bok 16 points.
“Thank you for not giving up until the end. In the beginning, our card did very well. It was difficult, but in the second half, the opponent was also shaken, so we took a chance and won.”
The five-set match continues from the last game. KB Insurance was not eligible for the All-Star break. After a four-day break, the head coach was worried about his stamina to resume the game. “I try to give myself a lot of rest,” he said. He let me rest after the last game, and this game is the same.” When I told him that KB Insurance had the most rest, Director Hu immediately said, “That’s right. Rest is important to us,” making everyone laugh.
However, KB Insurance had a strong ‘slow starter’ feeling. They couldn’t show their momentum in the first and second sets. Amid Villena’s great success, domestic players lacked support. In the first and second sets, Hwang Gyeong-min scored 6 points and Han Seong-jeong scored only 2 points. In response, coach Hu In-jeong said, “At the beginning of the game, (Hwang) Taek-eui runs the game in his own color. It’s so fast. That’s why (Hwang) Kyung-min and (Han) Seong-jeong feel a little overwhelmed. I had to adjust while playing, and in the second half, I raised the height well, so the attack came back to life,” he recalled the game.
However, even in the happy victory, there were dizzying moments. Jung Min-soo was unable to play due to an injury in the third set. Director Hu said, “(Jeong) Min-soo says it’s okay. It’s not serious, but it needs a checkup because it’s the area that was operated on,” he said, expressing his concern. There was Kim Do-hoon, who kept the coat alone in the midst of a crisis. He nodded his head and said, “Ten thousand points. He endured well and thank you for playing his role well.”
It was not easy to play 5 sets in a row. But in the end, we won and we have to keep this momentum going. Coach Hu In-jeong said, “The fact that both games went through the 5th set means that I have skills and the ability to lead the game. I gained confidence in this game, so I will try to win as many victories as possible in the remaining games. If you do your best, the results will follow,” he showed confidence.
The ‘game changer’ in this match was Park Jin-woo. He ended the long 32-32 deuce situation with his own blocking. It was even more meaningful because the 1st and 2nd sets were quiet. The chief laughed and said, “(Park) Jin-woo did really well. If he comes out in the 1st and 2nd sets, he seems to be able to solve the game easily.” However, he couldn’t hide his smile at his performance.
Coach Shin Young-chul, who lost, couldn’t help but smile. He said, “I had good momentum in the beginning, but I gave it up in the second half. I brought the first and second sets well, but (Hwang) Seung-bin was shaken from the third set. Even the middle blocker couldn’t keep up with the opponent.”
He continued, “When I was training, I pointed out the parts that I was not good at. If you don’t show what you trained for, there is no way to win other than the opponent’s mistakes. You must not do what you should not do,” he said, giving a harsh evaluation.
It is our card that showed the potential to lead to 5 sets in two consecutive matches, but the finish was not good. Let’s reduce the ups and downs of the set and hope that their strengths continue.
