Who will be the true “master of reversals” who will win the V-League Women’s Champion Final (Best of 5) trophy?
Heungkuk Life Insurance and Korea Expressway Corporation will play the first leg of the women’s championship match of the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’ at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon at 7:00 pm on the 29th. Heungkuk Life Insurance, which showed its potential by making reverses in the regular league and playoffs (PO), respectively, aims for the top in 4 seasons and Expressway Corporation in 5 seasons. The confrontation between the two teams in the championship match is the first in four years since the 2018-2019 season, which ended with Heungkuk Life Insurance’s combined victory.
Even though Heungkuk Life Insurance spent most of this season in second place, it laughed at the highest place at the end of the regular season. Hyundai E&C, which was shaken by injuries and physical decline of key players such as Yasmin, pushed to second place and went straight to the championship match.
It is not that there was no crisis. Heungkuk Life Insurance had a hard time finding a new head coach after former manager Kwon Soon-chan left the team in early January for unknown reasons. However, coach Kim Dae-kyung took care of the team as acting manager, and the players were united around veterans such as Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hae-ran. Through the trade, the uneasy setter was also stabilized, pulling down Hyundai E&C and rising to the top.
Currently, Heungkuk Life’s power is stable. The detailed tactics of coach Marcello Abondanza, who took over at the end of the regular season, and the growth of backup players were harmonized. There are concerns about the condition of the main setter Lee Won-jeong, who suffered a hamstring injury, but the performance of backup Da-sol Kim is also not bad. 온라인카지노
The Korea Expressway Corporation finished the regular season in 3rd place, but in the PO, it defeated Hyundai E&C, which lost its strength, and advanced to the championship match. It is a will to shake off the regret of being blocked by Heungkuk Life Insurance four years ago and staying in second place in both the regular league and the championship match.
In the first half of the road construction, ace Park Jung-ah suffered from an injury and foreign player Katarina suffered ups and downs because she could not adapt to the V-League. Although they consistently maintained a top 3 position, they benefited from the sluggish performance of the mid-lower teams. Recruiting Catbell in place of Katarina in early January was a godsend. Catbell played in 18 games in the second half and scored an average of 20.89 points, taking the lead in advancing to the PO along with Park Jung-ah, who regained her condition.
He went through the PO and even erased the element of anxiety. There were concerns about the lack of experience of ‘professional 2nd year’ setter Lee Yoon-jung, but he played the best role in his first ‘spring volleyball’. In two PO games with Hyundai E&C, he showed off his unnecessity management ability.
