The Hyundai Steel 2023 WK League, which celebrated its 14th anniversary this year, is chaos itself. Teams that were sluggish in the early stages are on the rise as if they were sluggish, and the leaderboard is fluctuating with one game.
As of now, nearly half of the season has passed, there is no single lead or absolute first place. As a result of the 11th round on the 16th, the leading position has changed again. Until the 10th round, Hwacheon KSPO was in first place, but Suwon FC Women succeeded in recapturing the lead they had lost.
Suwon FC, which suffered two consecutive defeats against Mungyeong Sangmu and Incheon Hyundai Steel, won 7 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in 11 games, 23 points, beating Hwacheon KSPO (22 points) by 2 points.
Hwacheon KSPO was caught in the heels of Incheon Hyundai Steel, which was on the rise. In the 27th minute of the first half, Jeong Seol-bin of Incheon Hyundai Steel scored the first goal, and in the 30th minute of the second half, Natsuki Yoshimi’s own goal resulted in a 1-2 loss. Meanwhile, Suwon FC defeated Changnyeong WFC 2-1. Mahia and Yeo Min-ji laughed while operating the continuous cannon.
The rise of Incheon Hyundai Steel, which is trying to win an unprecedented 11 consecutive wins, is also fierce. Although they went through the humiliation of losing streak at the beginning of the season and fell to 5th place, they are aiming for a leap to the upper ranks while running 4 consecutive victories before they know it.
You can’t be careless in a single game. The gap between 1st place Suwon FC and 4th place Gyeongju Hansuwon (17 points) is 6 points. So far, the teams that have risen to the top spot at least once are Incheon Hyundai Steel, which briefly took the lead at the opening, Suwon FC and Hwacheon KSPO. It is a league flow that will not be strange even if the leading position changes at any time.
It’s time to pay attention to the goal difference in the narrow victory point interval. In the WK League, if the points are tied, the rankings are decided in the order of ▲ goal difference ▲ winner-to-win ▲ most points ▲ most wins ▲ lottery.
Suwon FC is 2 goals ahead of Hwacheon KSPO (12) with a goal difference of 14. Managing goals is just as important as winning points. Minimizing real points can also be one of the methods.
The regular league is played in 21 rounds until the end of August. After that, playoffs for second and third place in the regular league will be held in November, and the winner of the playoff will meet the first-place team in the regular league in the championship match 안전놀이터.
