Heungkuk Life Insurance, a women’s professional volleyball team, did not miss the opportunity to come again and rose to the top of the league.
Heungkuk Life Insurance won the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Pepper Savings Bank home game held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 15th with a set score of 3-0 (25-17 25-18 25-19).
Heungkuk Life Insurance (63 points, 21 wins, 7 losses), which added 3 points, surpassed Hyundai Engineering & Construction (61 points, 21 wins, 7 losses) and rose to the top of the league.
Excluding the early season when the number of cumulative games was small, it is the first leading position since the opening.
On the 10th, when Hyundai Engineering & Construction lost to the lowest ranked Pepper Savings Bank and an opportunity for a reversal came, Heungkuk Life Insurance also lost to IBK Industrial Bank, ranked 6th, and could not save the chance.
However, as Hyundai E&C lost to the 3rd place Korea Expressway Corporation the day before, a second opportunity came, and this time Heungkuk Life Insurance did not miss it.
On the other hand, Pepper Savings Bank could not continue the rebellion of the underdog (weak team) that captured Hyundai E&C.
Also, Kim Yeon-kyung opened the door and led the team.
In the first set, 4-3, Kim Yeon-kyung landed a diagonal attack and pulled out a blockout with a strong spike.
After that, she was responsible for receiving and then attacking, scoring three consecutive points.
In Pepper Savings Bank, Nia Reid struggled with 7 points, but failed to manage the team room (8-5) and could not revive the embers of the pursuit.
In 11-14, Park Kyung-hyun and Lee Han-bi delayed handling the ball and conceded points in vain.
The second set seemed to be a close match.
Nia Reid’s firepower continued, and the vacancy of Kim Mi-yeon, who was absent from Heungkuk Life Insurance due to a knee injury, was revealed.
However, Pepper Savings Bank’s receive line began to collapse after 12-12, and it could not continue its momentum.
Pepper Savings Bank once again showed its back in the third set, but Kim Yeon-kyung saved the team.
Kim Yeon-kyung widened the score by scoring three consecutive points at 13-13, and maintained the lead with a quick open score when pursued at 16-15. 온라인바카라
On this day, Heungkuk Life Insurance twins Kim Yeon-kyung (19 points) and Yelena Mrazenovic (registered name Yelena, 16 points) did their part, and Joo-ah Lee (10 points) played an active part in the center.
At Pepper Savings Bank, Nia Reid (22 points) struggled, but was not helped by her colleagues.
In the men’s match held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon, second-place Hyundai Capital beat Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which placed second, with a set score of 3-1 (20-25 25-23 21-25 19-25).
Hyundai Capital (55 points, 18 wins, 10 losses), who took 3 points, closely followed the lead Korean Air (59 points, 20 wins, 8 losses).
On the other hand, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance (27 points, 9 wins, 19 losses), which recently won 4 consecutive wins by defeating strong teams in a row, lost momentum.
In Hyundai Capital, the triangular formation of Oreol Cameho (registered name Oreol, 23 points) and Heo Soo-bong and Jeon Kwang-in (each 19 points) were active.
