Reporter Park Dae-ro = Men’s professional volleyball KEPCO fell into a 9-game losing streak. Concerns are raised about whether he is suffering from a jinx as he repeatedly loses unfortunately after a full-set battle.

KEPCO lost after a full set match in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Men’s Samsung Firefighting away game held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 5th.

KEPCO, which was in the midst of 8 consecutive losses, tried to escape from the losing streak by sacrificing the lowest-ranking Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, but failed to achieve its goal.

Even in the beginning, it seemed like they could break out of the losing streak. In the 3rd set, where one set was exchanged, KEPCO created excitement with Seo Jae-deok and Shin Young-seok’s consecutive blocking, and took the set by 10 points amid continuous blocking baptism. 토토

Although they gave up 4 sets, KEPCO had the last 5 sets left. The seesaw game continued until the middle of the 5th set, but KEPCO collapsed at the last minute. In 8-9, Thais served as a substitute, and Shin Young-seok and Lim Seong-jin continued to serve. Then KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min urged the players, showing an exasperated reaction, saying, “It’s the same today,” during the operation time.

KEPCO chased after 13-14, but in the end, Kim Jeong-ho of Samsung Fire & Marine Co. attacked from behind and knelt down.

As coach Kwon said, KEPCO repeatedly lost due to a lack of support even after pushing the opponent to the 5th set.

KEPCO has lost 9 games in a row since the Woori Card match in December of last year, of which 4 games were close to half of the full set. Against Woori Card, both were full set losses. KEPCO also pushed league leader Korean Air to the 5th set, but collapsed in the 5th set without a doubt.

KEPCO’s 9 consecutive losses is the record for the most consecutive losses in the men’s division this season. Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which lost KEPCO on a 9-game losing streak this time, escaped on December 20 last year after winning a 7-game losing streak. Coincidentally, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance was the opponent to escape the losing streak.

In order for KEPCO to escape from a losing streak, it must solve the problem of lack of back heart. It is expected that the losing streak could be prolonged if the incident of collapsing on its own at an important moment is repeated.
