Reporter Seongdae Moon = The ranking competition of professional volleyball, which is heading towards the end of the season, is falling into the fog. The joys and sorrows were mixed depending on the results of the last 6-7 games.
Korean Air (20 wins, 9 losses, 59 points) in the men’s division has maintained first place since the beginning of the season with stable air defense coordination. However, as their power has recently faltered, they have allowed Hyundai Capital (19-10, 58 points) to pursue the second place.
Korean Air and Hyundai Capital have virtually confirmed their advance to the postseason. However, in order to go directly to the championship match, they need the first place title in the regular league.
Korean Air suffered 2 wins and 6 losses in the last 8 games. The cause of the sluggishness is the mistake. In the last 8 games, he recorded an average of 30 errors, so there were frequent cases of self-destruction. As the organizational power collapses, the attack power is shaken and it is necessary to reorganize.
Hyundai Capital is on the verge of taking the top spot while Korean Air is slowing down. In the last 6 games, including 3 wins in a row, they recorded 5 wins and 1 loss. If the current atmosphere is maintained, it is possible to rank first in the regular league.
At Hyundai Capital, Oreol and Heo Soo-bong lead the team. Oreoll also exhibits a high level of blocking ability. The defense led by Park Kyung-min and Yeo Oh-hyun is the best in the league.
Korean Air and Hyundai Capital are aiming for first place in the regular season for the 6th time in their career.
3rd place Woori Card (15 wins 14 losses 44 points), 4th place KEPCO (14 wins 16 losses 44 points), and 5th place OK Financial Group (14 wins 15 losses 41 points) are fighting a fierce battle for third place. .
In particular, the rapid progress of Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) stands out. KEPCO showed an unstable appearance, such as suffering 9 consecutive losses from the beginning to the middle of the season.
In the women’s division, Heungkuk Life Insurance (22 wins, 7 losses, 66 points) surpassed Hyundai Engineering & Construction (21 wins, 8 losses, 62 points) and rose to first place.
Heungkuk Life Insurance posted a good record of 6 wins and 2 losses in the last 8 games, with the height of Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena at the forefront. Considering the recent atmosphere, there is a high possibility of 1st place in the regular league for the 6th time in his career. 스포츠토토
Heungkuk Life Insurance’s biggest strength is that it has Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena, who are showing performance without ups and downs throughout the season.
On the other hand, Hyundai E&C is suffering from 1 win and 6 losses, including 4 losses in a row. While Yasmin was absent, the offensive power weakened, and even Kim Yeon-gyeon, a libero, left the team due to an ankle injury. Substitute foreign player Montaño participated in 3 games and only had 30% attack power, leaving a disappointment.
Hyundai E&C may find it difficult to regain first place without the ‘awakening’ of foreign players.
Korea Expressway Corporation (16 wins, 13 losses, 48 points) is in third place. However, KGC Ginseng Corporation (14 wins, 15 losses, 43 points) is aiming for the third place with the best foreign player, Elisabeth.
Ginseng Corporation has been spurting recently with a record of 6 wins and 2 losses.
If the difference between the 3rd and 4th place teams is less than 3 points, the semi-playoff will also be held, so the road construction and ginseng construction are expected to bet on life and death in the last 7 games. If you get caught by the lower rank teams, there may be fatal results.
