Heungkuk Life’s Chance to Win Back No. 1

He won, but he couldn’t hide his disappointment.

Heungkuk Life Insurance’s coach Marcello Avon terminal showed more disappointment than joy at the victory. Heungkuk Life Insurance won the match against IBK Industrial Bank of Korea in the fifth round of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League at Samsan Gymnasium in Incheon on the 15th, with a set score of 3 to 2 25-18 26-24 23-25 24-26 15-12.

Heungkuk Life Insurance, which secured two points from the victory, recorded 23 wins and six losses 64 points for the season, narrowing its gap with top-ranked Hyundai Engineering & Construction 21 wins, seven losses, 65 points. However, if it had won without going to the fifth set, it would have won 3. If it had secured this, it would have been able to rise to the first place in 61 days.

Heungkuk Life Insurance displayed very good performance in the early stages. Although Willow Johnson 191 cm failed to play due to ligament injury in his right knee, Kim Yeon-kyung 192 cm and Raina Tokoku 177 cm took charge of the attack and won two consecutive sets.

However, the team allowed IBK Industrial Bank of Korea to drop three or four sets later. In both sets, the team had to lead the game in full set with faltering concentration at the last minute. Although the team garnered victory after five sets, it did not meet the conditions for its No. 1 ranking.

“It’s a shame that I got a lot of mistakes after 20 points in the third and fourth sets,” Avon Danza said. “I should have gotten three points.” “I’m disappointed that I didn’t get three points.”

In the absence of Willow, a new foreign player, Avon Danja filled the spot with Kim Mi-yeon 177 centimeters. Early in the first set, Kim Mi-yeon’s side did not score a goal and wondered if Willow would feel empty, but later regained her sense of play. Notably, in the second set, she scored six points, the second-most in her team.

Coach Avon Danja also applauded Kim Mi-yeon’s performance. “It must have been difficult in terms of attack, not his position,” he said. “I think I was able to show more when I saw him play,” he said.

However, it is also true that fans are looking forward to Willow’s speedy return at the time of competition for the No. 1 ranking. “I hope he will get better soon and come back as soon as possible, but I think he will have to wait for at least two weeks.” 토토사이트
