Hyundai E&C, which had won 5 consecutive wins before planting in the new year, lost again to GS Caltex on the 20th and Korea Expressway Corporation on the 24th, losing again. With this, Hyundai E&C recorded 20 wins, 4 losses and 57 points. 안전놀이터
It is painful that foreign striker Yasmin has been sidelined due to back surgery since the end of last year. Domestic players endured without Yasmin, but in the process of losing 2 consecutive times, the limits of physical strength were exposed, and the number of offenses increased rapidly.
In the meantime, Heungkuk Life Insurance, second in the league, followed up to the bottom of the chin. Heungkuk Life Insurance accumulated victory points by uniting around Kim Yeon-kyung, the volleyball empress, despite experiencing internal troubles due to the hardship of manager Kwon Soon-chan. Heungkuk Life Insurance is recording 18 wins, 5 losses and 54 points. It is three points behind Hyundai E&C.
Heungkuk Life Insurance will meet Ginseng Corporation on the 25th at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium, its home stadium. Although Ginseng Corporation is 5th in the league, it is winning two consecutive games with side striker Elisabeth, main axis Lee So-young, and rookie middle blocker Jeong Ho-young.
If Heungkuk Life Insurance defeats Ginseng Corporation and gains 3 points, the difference between Hyundai E&C and points disappears. Even if you win after a close match in full set, you can chase up to 1 point difference by adding 2 points.In this case, the 5th round, which starts next month, is expected to become more intense. In particular, the confrontation between Hyundai E&C and Heungkuk Life Insurance, which will be held on the 7th of next month, is expected to be a watershed in the regular league championship competition. For Hyundai E&C, the timing of Yasmin’s return, and for Heungkuk Life Insurance, whether and when to appoint a new coach can be a variable.
