This is the second sold-out case at Suwon Gymnasium this season. Previously, Hyundai Engineering & Construction wrote the first sold-out case of the season in a confrontation with Heungkuk Life Insurance in the third round on December 29 last year.
It was a head-to-head match for 먹튀검증first and second place, with both team commanders emphasizing the importance. Heungkuk Life Insurance acting coach Kim Dae-kyung said before the game, “It is an important game for the players. Let’s have a great game,’ he said. “I’m nervous,” said Hyundai Engineering & Construction coach Kang Seong-hyung. I also feel sorry for the players (for playing the game without foreign players). Fans also visited the stadium a lot, and there will be a lot of pressure, but as it is a good situation, I hope we can have a good match.”
On this day, while Hyundai E&C played the game without foreign players, Heungkuk Life Insurance players stood on the court in a different look than before. Heungkuk Life Insurance won a shutout victory in an away game with KGC Ginseng Corporation on the 3rd, and the tactical change that placed Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena on the diagonal was effective. Until then, I had been using these two people all the time.
In order not to confuse the players with tactics, Acting Kim maintained the tactics he had been using since former coach Kwon Soon-chan and focused on rectifying the team atmosphere, but he tried to change from the Ginseng Construction match to maximize attack power. Acting Kim explained, “We will play aggressively with Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena on the opposite side.”
Heungkuk Life Insurance played a tight game against Hyundai E&C in the first and second sets, but Kim Yeon-kyung (22 points, 38.89% attack success rate) and Yelena (20 points, 48.72%) exploded again and won the victory. Like the ‘preview championship match’, the close match continued from the first set, but it was the performance and concentration of these twin guns that decided the game.
Heungkuk Life Insurance reached the set point with Kim Mi-yeon’s two consecutive goals in the first set 22-21, and then took the initiative in the early stages with Hwang Yeon-joo’s offense of Hyundai Engineering & Construction. In the second set, which was followed by two deuces, Kim Yeon-kyung’s two consecutive scores at 25-25 grabbed the victory even more strongly. Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena’s attacks became sharper with each set, and Heungkuk Life Insurance gained momentum and completed a shutout victory.
