SK, which had a 100% chance of advancing to the championship match by winning both the first and second away matches, defeated LG in the third match held at home and advanced to the championship match with three consecutive victories.메이저놀이터

Coach Jeon said, “The score difference widened in the first half, so I urged the players not to be vigilant. I thought the opponent would have a chance and said to keep our play. But it was difficult because the opponent was good at cutting and subtracting attacks.”

He added, “It was fortunate that we didn’t allow a reversal. It was a difficult win, but it’s good that it ended 3-0.”

SK, which once led by more than 20 points, was caught up to 1 point in LG’s fierce pursuit in the 3rd quarter.

However, he kept his lead without a reversal and won a thrilling victory. In particular, his skillfulness shined in the scene where he evaded the opponent’s defense with 20 seconds left at the end of the fourth quarter.

Coach Jeon said, “I was only given the position and the players played on their own. LG’s team had only one foul, so I was very anxious. If I was taken away, I could give a quick attack. But they skillfully defended it.”

He emphasized, “The schedule was really difficult from the 5th round. I went to the EASL (East Asia Super League) and the 6th round was also difficult, but I can only say that the part that continues the winning streak is amazing. Today, I really praised it a lot.”

SK, who came first to the championship, competes for the championship with Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and the winner of Goyang Carrot.

Coach Jeon said, “I don’t know which team will come up, but when Ginseng Corporation comes, we lose power. There are a lot of crazy players, so we have to come out, and we have to follow luck.”

He also laughed, saying, “I think it’s great just to go up to the championship match because Choi Jun-yong and Ahn Young-jun were omitted from last year’s winning members. Carrot is ‘impressive carrot’, but our team players are not easy.”

Lastly, regarding the opposing team, coach Jo Sang-hyun, he said, “I changed the form of defense in all three games. It is amazing to change all of them in a short time. It is possible to train a lot during the off-season.” It’s like a director who does it,” he highly praised.
