Is it a burden or an opportunity?
On the 8th, a confrontation between IBK Industrial Bank and Heungkuk Life Insurance will be held in the 4th round women’s match of the ‘2022-23 season Dodram V-League’ held at the Hwaseong Indoor Gymnasium.
Currently, IBK is in 6th place in the league with 22 points and 7 wins and 12 losses. In fact, it is in last place except for Pepper Savings Bank, which has just begun to play down the line. However, there is no need to be so frustrated.
Excluding 1st place Hyundai Engineering & Construction (48 points) and 2nd place Heungkuk Life Insurance (44 points), the difference between 3rd place Korea Expressway Corporation (29 points) and 6th place is not very large, with a difference of 2 to 3 points. The ranking fluctuates every time a game is played. Unless the bottom team loses two or more games in a row, or the third place team suddenly goes on the winning streak, there is a possibility that the rankings will be overturned at any time.
However, IBK’s current power does not seem to be very stable. Industrial Bank of Korea played against Hyundai E&C on both the 1st and 4th, the previous game.
On the 4th, the previous game, Santana scored 11 points (attack success rate 33.33%), Kim Hee-jin scored 9 points, and Pyo Seung-joo scored 6 points. And in the earlier one-day game, Santana added 14 points, Pyo Seung-ju 13 points, and Kim Su-ji added 8 points.
Excluding foreign players currently active in the V-League, Pyo Seung-joo ranked second in Korea in scoring (9th overall, cumulative 271 points), following Kim Yeon-kyung. When the score that should come out of the apositive spiker is blocked in the middle, you have to rely on the ability of the voter.
Kim Hee-jin started to stand on the court in the early and middle of the league, but there are ups and downs in many games. When he’s doing well he’s good, but when he’s not scoring, he’s all the way down. In particular, when meeting the strong teams Hyundai E&C and Heungkuk Life Insurance, scores rarely come out. Kim Hee-jin’s goal should be solved to make the atmosphere more favorable.
He has to put as much effort into defense as he does offense, but the situation is difficult. On the 1st, even the captain and main libero Shin Yeon-kyung, who had been firmly behind IBK, was injured and a red flag was turned on for the defense. Shin Yeon-kyung is expected to play again in the second half of the season after being diagnosed with ligament damage on the inside of his knee and ankle. Choi Soo-bin and Kim Soo-bin are alternately appointed, but the situation is difficult.
Manager Kim, who was a famous setter, is putting special effort into stabilizing his setter. He has been sending out Kim Ha-gyeong as the starting pitcher and is constantly feeding experience points to rookie Kim Yun-woo. 토토
There are quite a lot of things on the shoulders of veteran Kim Su-ji and Pyo Seung-ju. However, in this Heungkuk Life match, a tough fight is expected because Shin Yeon-kyung, who will receive the ball from Kim Yeon-kyung, is absent.
The point to aim for is that the current atmosphere of Heungkuk Life Insurance is quite far away, and it is only two days off before entering the game.
However, Heungkuk Life Insurance cannot be vigilant because it is a strong team that won even in difficult situations.
Heungkuk Life Insurance won a set score 3-2 against GS Caltex, the ‘natural enemy’, on the 5th, the previous game.
The team atmosphere was very confused due to the coach dismissal controversy, and Kim Yeon-kyung was not in good shape before the game. However, from the second half of the game, they attacked and managed to win after a full set of bloody battles.
At that time, Yelena scored 36 points (attack success rate 50.77%), Kim Yeon-kyung scored 22 points, and Kim Mi-yeon scored 11 points. If the defense is shaken, it is difficult to block Yelena’s back attack.
Middle blocker Kim Na-hee underwent surgery to remove a polyp and announced a two-week absence, but Byun Ji-soo, who was put in as a substitute, scored well in the clutch situation. Lee Joo-a, who always plays a big role as an atmosphere maker, scored 3 points in a quick attack. Kim Yeon-kyung scored 4 points in blocking, and Yelena recorded 7 effective blocks.
This day is also the debut match for new manager Kim Ki-joong. The key is for the team to show the same performance as before without being psychologically disturbed.
The match between the two teams will be played at 2 p.m.
