Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong understood the hearts of the bowed players.
Hyundai Capital lost to Korean Air at Incheon Gyeyang Gymnasium on the 1st with a set score of 0-3 (20-25 22-25 22-25) in the second leg of the men’s championship match of the ‘2022-23 Dodram V-League’.
They were driven to the edge of the cliff with two consecutive losses in the best-of-five match. The probability of winning the first and second rounds of the men’s championship match was ‘100%’. In other words, the winning probability of the losing team in the first and second games is ‘0%’. But I can’t give up like this. Hyundai Capital must win tomorrow (3rd) at home Cheonan and lead the match to the 5th game.
Following the last game, the difference in attack power between the two teams in Gyeonggi-do was felt on this day. In Korean Air, Lincoln scored 24 points, Kwak Seung-seok 11 points, and Jeong Ji-seok 9 points, all of the strikers playing an active role. In Hyundai Capital, Heo Soo-bong struggled with 16 points, but the mercenary Oreol, who had to explode, scored 6 points and the attack success rate was sluggish with 25.32%. The difference in attack score was 53-38, and Hyundai Capital did not even have a serve score. The absence of a key outside heater Jeon Kwang-in was even more disappointing.
It was regrettable that Heo Soo-bong made a mistake in the last 3 sets, which were the most tense of the day. In the 22-22 match, the game ended with Heo Soo-bong’s consecutive offenses.
Heo Soo-bong blamed himself and shed tears. However, coach Choi Tae-woong covered up Ace’s mistake. “Heo Soo-bong is an ace. He can make mistakes like that. It’s greed to tell him to do better. I hope his crisis management skills will grow,” he encouraged.
Regarding the other players, he showed a positive attitude, saying, “The young players held up well and I felt that they were growing.” 스포츠토토
The mercenary Oreol, who showed the most regretful performance by only scoring 6 points (attack success rate of 15%), also counted the feelings. Director Choi Tae-woong said, “There are physical problems, but it seems that it is uncomfortable to change positions and attack. If there are many veterans, the connection would be smooth, but this point was lacking.”
Hyundai Capital, driven to the edge of a cliff, will play the third game. It is a disadvantageous situation, but returning to Cheonan, home, is a great strength. Coach Tae-Woong Choi said, “Anyway, there are many fans in Cheonan. I will receive the power of support. I will not sit down like this.”
