KGC Ginseng Corporation director Ko Hee-jin sighed deeply after losing to Heungkuk Life Insurance on the 11th.
KGC Ginseng Corporation (53 points, 18 wins, 17 losses) failed to gain points that day and stayed in 4th place, behind Korea Expressway Corporation (54 points, 18 wins, 16 losses).
If Korea Expressway Corporation gets 6 points in the remaining two games, it will be impossible for Ginseng Corporation to advance to the semi-playoffs (junior PO).
In the V-League, a semi-PO is held between the two teams only when the difference in points between the 3rd and 4th teams is 3 or less.
In addition, the situation is even more difficult because the last opponent waiting for Ginseng Corporation is also second place Hyundai E&C.
After the game at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon, coach Koh said, “There is one game left (until the end of the regular season), but we all know that advancing to the postseason is difficult.” same,” he said.
In particular, the regret was inevitable because it was Ginseng Corporation, which raised the possibility of ‘spring volleyball’ by running 6 consecutive wins at the end of the season.
Coach Go said, “I told the players, ‘We have to overcome a game like today to go to the postseason and become champions. We have to admit that we didn’t do well and prepare again.'”
On the other hand, Heungkuk Life Insurance coach Marcello Abondanza breathed a sigh of relief.

As for the place of victory, he gave up the lead in the early and mid-half, and then picked the 3rd set where he succeeded in reversing.
Heungkuk Life Insurance, which was trailing by up to four points, balanced 15-15 with the triangular formation of Yelena Mrazenovich (registered name Yelena), Kim Mi-yeon, and Kim Yeon-kyung.
Afterwards, he showed his last-minute concentration in 19-19, took a three-point lead, and stepped on the 25-point plateau first.
Coach Abondanza recalled, “I think I lost my concentration in the serve and blocking in the third set,” and “I was able to solve the game well because I tried to focus as much as possible on the attack.”
Regarding Lee Won-jung, the main setter who played an active role after overcoming a hamstring injury, he praised, “I showed good results compared to taking a break for about 5 days and participating in training once.”
