‘Triangle formation’ 72 points runaway Heungkuk Life Insurance laughed first
On the 29th, Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon, where the 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Championship Match (5 matches, 3 wins) between Heungkuk Life Insurance and Expressway Corporation was held. Before the game, Kim Jong-min, head coach of the road construction, picked ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung (pictured) as the player to be most wary of, saying, “Kim Yeon-kyung in the regular league and the championship game will definitely be different players.” I will put forward as an apposite spiker and play in front of Kim Yeon-kyung, who will appear as an outside heater, to block it.”
Director Kim’s ‘Kim Yeon-kyung blockade’ was a success. Kim Yeon-kyung had only 23.53% of her attack success rate in her 1st and 2nd sets amid fierce checks. Although she scored 7 points, including 2 blocks and 1 serve, she was clearly far from her usual Kim Yeon-kyung.
However, Heungkuk Life Insurance was not the only Kim Yeon-kyung. Apposite spiker Yelena and Kim Yeon-kyung’s outside heater partner Kim Mi-yeon exploded together, making up for the sluggishness of ‘Bread Sister’. Yelena scored 10 points and 20 points in the first and second sets, respectively. Her attack success rate reached 54.55%. Kim Mi-yeon also steadfastly endured the baptism of purposeful hits by the road construction servers, adding 10 points (attack success rate 40.91%) like Altoran. Thanks to the performance of the two players, Heungkuk Life Insurance, who brought the first set to the end of the deuce battle, won the second set with a whopping 13 point difference.
Kim Yeon-kyung did not just take a free ride on victory. Although Heungkuk Life Insurance gave away 3 sets, Kim Yeon-kyung adjusted the offense by raising 8 points, the most in the team. As she survived until Kim Yeon-kyung, it became more difficult for her to unravel her game as a road construction worker. Kim Yeon-kyung scored 11 points in the 4th set alone, raising her final scorecard of the game that day to 26 points and an attack success rate of 45.10%. She was a record worthy of the nickname ‘Volleyball Empress’.메이저사이트
Heungkuk Life Insurance, which exploded with the triangular formation of Kim Yeon-kyung, Yelena (32 points), and Kim Mi-yeon (14 points), defeated the road construction 3-1 (27-25 25-12 23-25 25-18). Of the 16 women’s championships held in history, the winning team in the first leg has lifted the championship trophy 9 times, with a probability of only 56.25%. Even the road construction, which was sluggish with a success rate of only 26.62%, still has room to counterattack. However, in the last 10 women’s championships, the team that won the first leg won nine.
After the game, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I expected it to be difficult today, and it didn’t work out well in the beginning, but I’m glad I was able to finish it with a victory.”
