I can’t stop her at all… Yelena scored 21 points and ‘zero errors’
Heungkuk Life Insurance won 2 consecutive victories in the championship match (3 wins in 5 matches) by operating the powerful ‘souble gun’ of Yelena and Kim Yeon-kyung.
Heungkuk Life Insurance beat Korea Expressway Corporation with a set score of 3-0 (25-18 25-15 25-21) in the second leg of the 2022-23 V-League Championship held at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium on the 31st. With this, Heungkuk Life Insurance succeeded in winning two consecutive championships, leaving only one step left to win. The probability of winning the team that won both the first and second games in the previous women’s championship was 100% (5 out of 5 times). In addition, 6,108 cloud spectators gathered at the stadium that day. This is Heungkuk Life Insurance’s 6th home game sold out, including the regular season.
The offensive power of the twins Yelena and Kim Yeon-kyung shone. Yelena scored 21 points and had an attack success rate of 59.4%, while Kim Yeon-kyung scored 18 points and had a success rate of 58.1%. Compared to Park Jung-ah (10 points) and Catbell (9 points), the highest scorers in the road construction, you can guess how one-sided the firepower of Heungkuk Life Insurance was. In particular, while Yelena scored 21 points, including 1 point for serve, 1 point for blocking, and 19 points for attack, she did not commit a single mistake and showed high scoring ability. 먹튀검증
The two teams will now play the third round of the championship on April 2 at the Gimcheon Gymnasium in North Gyeongsang Province, the home of the Korea Expressway Corporation. If Heungkuk Life Insurance wins only one more win in the future, it will lift the championship cup for the first time in four years since the 2018-19 season and for the 5th time in the club’s career. After finishing the regular league in first place this year, the club’s 4th combined championship (regular league first place, championship match victory) was also on the horizon.
On the other hand, Korea Expressway Corporation broke through the playoffs and lost its momentum to reach the championship match in 4 years. In particular, Park Jung-ah, Bae Yoo-na, and Jeon Sae-yan are in poor physical condition, such as playing the game wearing masks in the second game and cooling off with ice packs during breaks. However, as the 3rd and 4th games are held at home, the front lines must be reorganized to avenge the defeat in the 1st and 2nd games.
