KEPCO climbed to 4th place with 4 consecutive wins.
KEPCO won with a set score of 3 to 1 메이저놀이터 in the 5th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Men’s Division Hyundai Capital held at the Suwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 5th. . KEPCO earned 3 points while winning 4 consecutive wins, 12-14 losses, 38 points, beating OK Financial Group (12-14 losses, 37 points) and placed 4th.
I gave up the first set, but from the second set, the offense and defense came back to life perfectly. In the blocking fight, they lost 4-17, but scored when needed. In particular, Libero Jang Ji-won created a counterattack opportunity while enduring Hyundai Capital’s strong attack. On this day, KEPCO’s Thais stood at the center of the attack with 27 points, and Seo Jae-deok and Shin Young-seok combined 28 points. Lim Seong-jin also contributed to the firepower with 9 points.
After the game, KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min said, “There was too much difference in blocking in the first set. However, after that, it seems that I gained the power to follow as I reduced my mistakes. I gained the power to follow even if I lost by 2 points by 3 points. I hope that Ji-won’s psychological difficulties will be resolved.”
On this day, he expressed his apologies to Park Chul-woo, who made a surprise trip to the center. Director Kwon said, “(Park) Cheol-woo, I asked him what it would be like to change to center through an interview. He had blocking ability. It’s been about 2 weeks since he practiced at center, but today he went in for the first time.” Director Kwon continued, “I think I’ll have to practice a lot of quick attacks,” and laughed, “It wasn’t bad to follow the blocking. It feels good to win.
I was also very grateful to Jang Ji-won, who showed ‘Super Digg’ everywhere. Director Kwon said, “We brought (Ha) Seung-woo and (Chang) Ji-won into the trade for our own sake. If I made a receive miss after 20 points, I felt guilty. I couldn’t overcome it, so I consulted psychologically. I’m trying to.
While jumping into the middle of a fierce ranking battle, coach Kwon said, “All teams’ performance is good. I will do my best in each game until the end.”
