Coach Shin Young-cheol, middle blocker Lee Sang-hyun, and setter Han Tae-joon were absent from the previous game, and outside heaters Kim Ji-han and Kim Dong-min, who were diagnosed with Corona 19, were removed from power in the match today. Anyone could see that Hyundai Capital had an advantage in terms of power, but the result was the exact opposite.
Woori Card, awakened from the 2nd set, changed the flow
Woori Card prepared for the game in the absence of the main players. Also, most of the players stepped on the court with masks on. Even though it was difficult to use a wide range of players and even the head coach was away, he did not want to defeat the home fans.
In the first set, the game did not go as our card wished. The score, which was 5-3 with Hyundai Capital’s 5 consecutive goals, widened to 10-3 at once. In 16-7, Heo Soo-bong’s 3 consecutive serve aces exploded. Hyundai Capital achieved 5 sub-aces (2 Choi Min-ho and 3 Heo Soo-bong) in the first set alone.
However, the atmosphere changed from the second set. Riverman Agamez (registered name Agamez) began to revive, such as making a sub ace in 13-13. In addition, Na Kyung-bok and Song Hee-chae also improved their condition and made up for the defeat in the first set.
The winner of the match was the 3rd set. In 24-24, Agamez’s back attack followed by substitute Jung Sung-kyu’s serve goal put an end to the tight battle. Jung Sung-gyu, who played the role of a ‘scene stealer’, heated up the Jangchung Gymnasium with 3,273 spectators.
Woori Card, which secured 1 point, maintained its upward trend until the 4th set. At the beginning of the 4th set, Hyundai Capital put Oreo Cameho (registered name Oreool) and Jeon Kwang-in into the warm-up zone, but it did not work. Eventually, at 24-16, Heo Soo-bong’s back attack went off the line and the game ended as it was.
The number of sub-aces in our card, which continues to hope for spring volleyball with fans,
was 3 more in Hyundai Capital (9). However, Woori Card (8) recorded 1 more blocking than the ‘high team’ Hyundai Capital (7), preventing the opponent from taking advantage. Song Hee-chae alone recorded 3 blocks.
The player who scored the most points across both teams was Agamez (25 points), with an attack success rate of 56.76%. Na Gyeong-bok (14 points) and Song Hee-chae (11 points), who contributed to the team’s victory with double-digit scores, and Kim Wan-jong (7 points), who played as the main middle blocker for two consecutive games, also did their part.
On the other hand, Hyundai Capital, which had not let go of hope due to Heo Soo-bong’s (21 points) struggle, suffered an unexpected blow. In particular, unlike the first set, which overpowered the opponent in the serve, after the second set, Hyundai Capital’s receive line was greatly shaken.
Woori Card, which played against Korean Air on the 14th (3217 players) and Hyundai Capital on the 19th (3273 players) under the system of acting manager Kim Jae-hyeon, recorded consecutive wins without a manager. In particular, the support of the home fans was hot. Two games in a row broke the record for the highest number of spectators this season, and the 1st to 3rd highest spectator games (3rd place was Woori Card-Samsung Firefighting on December 17 last year, 3112) are all Woori Card home games.
Coach Shin Young-cheol, who tested positive for Corona 19 on the 13th, can take the baton from the next game as planned. While Woori Card, which is taking a break for two days on the 20th and 21st, clashes with the 3rd place OK Financial Group at home on the 22nd, attention is focusing on whether it will succeed in recapturing the 3rd place with fans. 바카라사이트
