Reporter Lee Jae-sang = Women’s professional volleyball KGC Ginseng Corporation, which is advancing toward spring volleyball with a 5-game winning streak, met the ‘natural enemy’ Korea Expressway Corporation at an important juncture. Only by breaking the losing streak from last season can they step on the postseason stage for the first time in six years since the 2016-17 season.
KGC will have an away game against Korea Expressway Corporation in the 2022-23 Dodram V-League Round 6 at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium at 7:00 pm on the 28th.
The recent trend is ahead of KGC. KGC, who won 5 consecutive wins for the first time in the season, rose to 3rd place with 16 wins and 15 losses (49 points), one point ahead of Road Construction (48 points, 16 wins and 14 losses), which played one less game. On the other hand, the road construction has recently been slowing down with two consecutive losses.
KGC, which has good momentum, confronts the road construction at an important juncture.
This season, KGC bowed its head whenever it encountered only road construction. He lost all 5 rounds until the 5th round and lost his pride. Including last season, they are losing 9 consecutive losses to the road construction.
After winning the set score 3-0 in the home game on October 23, 2021, the first confrontation of the 2021-22 season, they lost 9 games in a row. Every time KGC tried to hit the rise, the flow was cut off as it was caught in the road construction.
In the home game on the 31st of last month, KGC took a 23-20 lead in the first set, surrendered the set with a shocking come-from-behind defeat 23-25, and eventually bowed its head with a shutout loss.
KGC is pinning its hopes on middle blocker Jeong Ho-young, who has emerged as an ace this season with the recent performance of Elisabeth Ine Barga (registered name Elisabeth), a foreigner who is in good condition. As of the 27th, Elisabeth is ranked first in scoring (878 points), second in overall attack (43.32% attack success rate), and second in open (43.26%). 토토사이트
Jeong Ho-young, who suffered ups and downs due to injuries after joining KGC as the 1st overall pick in the 2019-20 season, has shown significant growth this season by ranking 2nd in quick attack, 6th in blocking, and 16th in scoring.
The biggest concern is how much Chung Ho-young will be able to play on an equal footing against Jung Dae-young and Bae Yoo-na, a veteran middle blocker duo who have gone through all sorts of battles.
The road construction company can also continue its winning streak against KGC only when the offensive power of Catherine Bell (registered name Catbell), which has been somewhat stagnant recently, revives.
Many volleyball fans are paying attention to whether KGC can break the jinx before the road construction and go up to a higher place. It is interesting to see if Koh Hee-jin, coach of the KGC, who is industrious, will be able to reap his first win against Korea Expressway Corporation manager Kim Jong-min.
