IBK Industrial Bank defeated GS Caltex with a set score of 3-0 (25-18 25-19 25-17) in the second round of group B of the cup competition held at the Park Chung-hee Gymnasium in Gumi, Gyeongbuk on the 1st.

IBK Industrial Bank, which won the first game against Heungkuk Life on the 30th of last month with a set score of 3-0, won two consecutive shutout victories.

IBK Industrial Bank, which won the previous Heungkuk Life Insurance game with Hwang Min-kyung’s 17 points, gave Hwang Min-kyung a break before GS Caltex.

Hwang Min-kyung sat side by side with new teammate Kim Hee-jin, who is recovering from knee surgery in February, and watched the game.

Instead, Pyo Seung-joo (20 points) and Yuk Seo-yeong (18 points) bombed the GS Caltex court in pairs.

Pyo Seung-ju made fun of the GS Caltex middle blocker with an attack success rate of 56.67%, and there were only two attack rooms.

In addition, Kim Hyun-jung helped them with 9 points, including 3 sub-aces.

On this day, IBK Industrial Bank easily solved the game with a team attack success rate of 45.53% thanks to efficient attack distribution by setter Kim Ha-kyung.

Pyo Seung-joo scored 7 points in the first set and had an attack success rate of 83.33%, and Seo-yeong Yuk scored 8 points in the second set. IBK Industrial Bank easily won the first two sets.

In 19-14, he even hit his first serve ace in the game that day, ending his victory.

GS Caltex knelt down after repeated ineffective attacks with a 31.89% team attack success rate, despite Kang So-hui struggling with 12 points.

In the match held at the same place, Heungkuk Life Insurance showed off its skills to Supreme Chonburi, an invited team in the Thai League, and won with a set score of 3-0 (25-20 25-19 25-10).

Heungkuk Life Insurance, where ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung does not participate in this cup competition, put pressure on Supreme with outside hitter Jung Yun-joo’s strong blow.

Jung Yun-joo succeeded in a powerful attack before the front and the attack in the center, making Heungkuk Life coach Marcello Abondanza laugh.

With Jung Yun-ju recording the most points for both teams with 17 points, Kim Mi-yeon (15 points) and Park Hyeon-joo (13 points) formed a ‘triangle formation’ and stirred up the Supreme defense.

Heungkuk Life Insurance scored a whopping 11 serve points, and Supreme failed to score a single serve ace.

The team attack success rate was also 51%, overwhelming Supreme, who only had 32.92%.

Supreme, a prestigious club in the Thai league, who participated in this tournament as an overseas invited team, showed a sharp attack with 40-year-old veteran middle blocker Flumjit Singkau at the fore, even though many key players were missing.

Plumejit scored 11 points, the most on Supreme, including two blocked goals, but his juniors couldn’t keep up with him.

With the match that day, IBK Industrial Bank confirmed their advancement to the semifinals with a 2-game win, and Supreme (2 losses) was eliminated.

On the 3rd, IBK Industrial Bank challenges Supreme to win all 3 group league matches, and Heungkuk Life Insurance and GS Caltex, who won 1 win and 1 loss side by side, will face off for the one remaining ticket to the semifinals.
