Heungkuk Life Insurance lost with a set score of 스포츠토토 in the home game against KGC Ginseng Corporation in the 4th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division held at Samsan Gymnasium in Incheon on the 25th.
Heungkuk Life Insurance struggled with KGC’s solid receive from the first set, and it was difficult to gain an advantage. Out of the box, he was caught off guard as he was unable to cope with the opponent’s quick attack using KGC middle blocker Jeong Ho-young.
After giving up the 1st and 2nd sets, he took a sigh for a while by winning the 3rd set, but collapsed as he could not cope with KGC’s quick attack again in the 4th set. Setter Kim Da-sol and the main striker’s breathing were often exposed, showing a performance that left many regrets.
Heungkuk Life Insurance maintained its second place with a season record of 18 wins and 6 losses and 54 points, 3 points behind Hyundai Engineering & Construction (57 points). The plan to get rid of the points gap and meet the Olympic break completely went awry.
In the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounds of this season, he showed absolute strength by winning all confrontations with KGC, but collapsed in vain against the opponent who strengthened his receive and had a quick attack strategy.
Heungkuk Life Insurance’s acting manager Kim Dae-kyung said after the game, “Everyone was aware that it was an important game, but I regret not being able to take responsibility for the victory.” It was a defeat that we couldn’t stop.”
He also admitted defeat cleanly, saying, “In order not to burden the players, it was only one game during the season, so let’s do well, but it didn’t work out well.”
However, since the opponent for the first match of the 5th round on the 3rd after the All-Star break is KGC, he is in a position to take revenge. Acting Kim added, “Since the next game is also KGC, I will prepare well to win.”
