KGC Ginseng Corporation outside heater Go Eui-jeong did not miss the opportunity to start for the first time in four months. The remaining goal is the postseason with cherry blossoms.
KGC Ginseng Corporation won the 2022-2023 Dodram V League Women’s Round 6 match against Pepper Savings Bank at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 24th with a set score of 3-1 (25-17, 25-17. 20-25, 25-16). won KGC, which ran 5 consecutive wins in 1105 days, beat Korea Expressway Corporation by 1 point and rose to third place.
Coach Hee-jin Koh, ahead of the game, avoided answering questions about the selection of outside heaters. Then, Go Eui-jeong was put in the diagonal seat of Lee So-young. It has been four months since the Heungkuk Life Insurance match on October 19, 2022, the first round, that Go Eui-jung started as a starter.
Goh Eui-jung responded 100% to his director’s expectations. He succeeded in 7 out of 8 attacks in the first set. Pepper Savings Bank focused its serve on Go Eui-jung, who had a weak receive, but endured without any mistakes. Coach Go encouraged Ko Eui-jeong by replacing him with a player with strong defense. Go Eui-jung not only served well, but also mixed hits and hits, easing the burden on Elisabeth and So-young Lee. In the 4th set, he missed the start, but in the 1st and 2nd sets, he could not win easily if there was no Go Eui-jeong. 14 points, the second most after Elizabeth.
After the game, Ginseng Corp. players surrounded Go Eui-jeong and slapped her on the shoulder. During the broadcast interview, he was even baptized with water in congratulations. Go Eui-jung, who entered the interview room, laughed, saying, “I was so grateful to my colleagues. It’s been two years since I’ve been a distinguished player.” Go Eui-jeong said, “I have to win today to rise to third place, and I thought it was an important game because I was getting closer to spring volleyball. I’m happy to win. It feels good to overcome a difficult moment.”
In fact, until the day before, Go Eui-jeong’s heart was full of anxiety. He was picked as a starting player and trained on the A court, but the content was bad. Go Eui-jung said, “I was nervous when he told me that I was going to start during the practice game yesterday. I entered the A court and I was upset because it didn’t go as well as I wanted, but the coach encouraged me to prepare well. Thanks to my colleagues who helped me a lot on and off the court. It seems to have gone well,” he said.
The person who welcomed Go Eui-jung’s performance the most was director Go Hee-jin. Coach Goh said, “(Round 5) Eui Jeong-i showed a good performance while playing the away game in Gwangju. He was the player who trained the most when the national team players were absent during the off-season, but I was sorry that I couldn’t send him out as a starter. In fact, I cried a little during practice yesterday. .It didn’t go well. I was thrilled and happy that I overcame it today.” 메이저사이트
Setter Yeom Hye-seon tried to save Go Eui-jeong, who had been playing for the first time in a long time. Go Eui-jeong-eun said, “She talked a lot with Hye-seon. ‘You have to be more energetic. Don’t be intimidated.’ The opposing serve was, of course, focused on Go Eui-jung, but he held on well. Go Eui-jeong said, “The rally is over if you make a complete miss (giving a serve point), so the older sisters told me not to do that. They helped me a lot from the side.”
Ko Eui-jeong passed the 100-point mark (170 points) for the first time since his professional debut in the 2020-21 season, his third professional year. He leaped to become a semi-main player with powerful offense and strong serve. However, last year he only scored 102 points, and this year he only scored 62 points until the 5th round. However, as Lee So-young and Park Hye-min were recruited, the competition within the team became more intense and the opportunities decreased.
Go Eui-jung said, “Since there are many good players on our team (opportunities to go out have decreased). I have to do better and show a reliable image so that the coach gives me a chance, so I want to repay the trust from now on.”
The address of the KGC Ginseng Corporation gym is 71 Beonji Beonji, Daedeok-gu, Daejeon Metropolitan City. The whole area is full of cherry trees. However, players do not remember seeing cherry blossoms. It was because they failed to advance to the postseason and took a vacation earlier than other teams and left their accommodation. The wish of Go Eui-jeong, who has never played spring volleyball, is to see cherry blossoms in full bloom.
Go Eui-jeong said, “I have the strength to overcome when I am in a crisis situation. The game is important in the future, and this season seems to have come a little closer.” I want to,” he laughed.
