The professional volleyball Dodram 2022-23 V-League regular league enters the second half after a short All-Star break. The V-League, which opened on October 22 last year and fought a bloody victory point battle until the 4th round, will cover the main character to go to spring volleyball through rounds 5 and 6, which will resume from the 31st.
The battle for rankings is hot in both men and women. In the women’s division, Hyundai Engineering & Construction and Heungkuk Life Insurance are competing for the lead. Hyundai E&C recorded 20 wins, 4 losses, and 57 points in 24 games, maintaining first place throughout the first half. In the third round, foreign striker Yasmin suffered from back pain and had a bad situation, but the native players stood firm and maintained the lead.
The pursuit of Heungkuk Life Insurance, led by ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung, is also fierce. Heungkuk Life Insurance recorded 54 points (18 wins, 6 losses), chasing leading Hyundai E&C by 3 points. In Hyundai E&C, the timing of Yasmin’s return from injury, and in Heungkuk Life Insurance’s absence of a coach, managing the team atmosphere is an important variable in the second half of the competition. 스포츠토토
More fierce than the competition for the lead is the fight for third place with the last ticket to advance to the postseason. While Korea Expressway Corporation is in third place with 13 wins, 11 losses and 38 points, the gap between KGC Ginseng Corporation (11 wins, 13 losses, 35 points) in 4th place and GS Caltex (11 wins, 13 losses, 33 points) in 5th place is not large. It is difficult to predict the ranking until the end.
Kim Jong-min, coach of the Korea Expressway Corporation, said, “The gap between the mid-ranking teams is not very wide, so each game is important.”
GS Caltex coach Sang-Hyun Cha said, “The rankings will not be decided until the end of the 5th round.”
In the V-League, if the difference between 3rd and 4th places is less than 3 points, a semi-playoff will be held. As such, it is important not to fall from the competition for third place until the very end, even if you do not finish at least in third place.
In the men’s division, the ‘absolute best’ Korean Air (19 wins, 5 losses, 55 points) continues to dominate, while the rest of the teams are fighting for rankings. In a situation where Hyundai Capital (15 wins, 9 losses, 46 points) is strong for 2nd place, the fight for 3rd place is a step in.
3rd place Woori Card (14 wins, 10 losses, 38 points), 4th place OK Financial Group (12 wins, 12 losses, 37 points), and 5th place KEPCO (10 wins, 14 losses, 32 points) are fighting fiercely for the 3rd place. .
Our card is worried about ups and downs in performance. Not too long ago, it overpowered Korean Air, but recently it was caught by Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which came last. Shin Young-chul, manager of Woori Card, said, “The ball is round. You always have to be humble and have a good rhythm.”
OK Financial Group is deeply hurt by the absence of apogee spiker Cho Jae-seong, who left the military due to corruption in the military service. Still, I have high expectations for Song Myeong-geun, the ‘local geopo’ who has returned from military service. Seok Jin-wook, head coach of OK Financial Group, said, “There is no major physical problem yet,” and pledged, “I will win more in the second half.”
