Korea Expressway Corporation and Hyundai E&C go to the second round of the playoffs. The two teams will start the match on the 25th at 2pm at the Gimcheon Indoor Gymnasium.
The first game, which took place in Suwon on the 23rd, two days ago, ended with Korea Expressway Corporation’s 3-1 victory. If the road construction wins today, the series will end and we will head to the championship match. On the other hand, Hyundai E&C is at the edge of a cliff. We must win today and lead the series to Suwon Game 3 on the 27th. In the 16 previous V-League women’s playoffs so far, the winning team in the first game has all advanced to the championship match. Hyundai E&C needs a victory today to break the 100% chance and make an exception.
Game 1 was a boring 메이저사이트game. There was no tension. In the second half of the second set, Hyundai Engineering & Construction had a 24-21 lead, and only one scene was a close match when Korea Expressway Corporation pressed with a 1-point lead. Overall, it was a game that was focused on one side.
In the road construction, Catbell (29 points) was outstanding, and Park Jung-ah (17 points) also operated scoring power in elemental elements. Bae Yoo-na (13 points) was still active.
On the other hand, Hyundai E&C was disappointed with the performance of Montaño (20 points). It was a situation that needed more attacking power, but it was regrettable. The easy-to-hit balls scored points, but the limit was clear in the part where difficult balls were scored. All other domestic players stayed at 8 points. As Yang Hyo-jin and Jung Ji-yoon’s scoring route was blocked, Hyundai E&C was unable to use its strength.
Hyundai E&C had 28 rooms, and Road Corporation had 19. Both teams had a lot of mistakes, but Hyundai E&C’s connection mistakes were a pity.
It is true that the postseason focuses on winning and losing rather than performance. But it’s a pity that the basic performance doesn’t come out. This is also directly related to the physical problems of the players. As his stamina decreased significantly, so did his performance. As a result, the offensive decision was not accompanied, and in the end, as the rally became longer, there were many cases where it ended with a mistake.
What both teams need today is concentration. It is necessary to unravel the game in a super-intensive situation. In particular, Hyundai E&C has to bet on the first set.
The best scenario is for Jung Ji-yoon to endure the receive and show his ability to solve the attack. If Jeong Ji-yoon is blocked, the attack will inevitably be driven to Montaño.
The blocking wall of the road construction is the strongest in the league in terms of effective countermeasures, so it is not easy to break through. Also, the fact that setter Lee Yun-jeong has a wide range of defense in the first spot is a checkpoint. Im Myung-ok is holding out in the 5th seat.
In the end, Hyundai E&C should lead to a goal as Montaño and Jeong Ji-yoon’s attacks diverge from both sides. In the midst of this, Yang Hyo-jin and Lee Da-hyun’s side should mix the center score to win. In the end, receiving is a must for stability. We need to look carefully at this part today.
The road construction finished the season in a good flow, and won the first game of the playoffs. While the scoring power of the three attackers is still high, the form of setter Lee Yoon-jung is also on the rise. Both attack and blocking were not pushed back, and the flow was good because there were relatively few errors.
If the road construction in an advantageous position is looking at a bigger goal, it is very important to secure 3 days of rest and preparation time until the championship match with today’s victory.
Today’s game 2 is a confrontation between Expressway Corporation, who wants to finish the series with a win streak at home, and Hyundai E&C, who wants to lead the series with the 3rd game in Suwon.
Concentration will make the difference. The fact that it starts at 2 p.m. also seems to have an impact on performance. Expect a great match.
