“It’s okay to lose if you get this kind of grade.”
This is what the men’s professional volleyball coach Kwon Young-min and KEPCO (Korea Electric Power Corp.) and foreign player Tyce Dull Host (registered name: Tyce) said in unison after winning 3-0 against OK Financial Group on the 14th. The team, which suffered from sluggishness throughout the first round, looked energized when it won a complete victory for the first time in a long time.
KEPCO seems to have set the stage for a rebound in this game. On the 18th, the team won a complete victory with a set score of 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 25-14, 30-28) against Korean Air, the second-ranked team in the league. It recorded its first shutout of the season against OK Financial Group and its first two-game winning streak against Korean Air.
Korean Air’s main gun Jung Ji-seok fell out due to a back injury, but Shin Sung and Jeong Han-yong filled the seats and kept their top positions. It was never easy for KEPCO to win a complete victory over Korean Air.
Thailand, Seo Jae-deok, and Lim Sung-jin triangular teams, who each scored double-digit points in the match against OK Financial Group, also performed well in the match against Korean Air. Thailand scored 29 points, while Lim Sung-jin and Seo Jae-deok scored 15 and 11, respectively. Veteran middle blocker (center) Shin Young-seok scored a total of 13 points, including six blocks.
Tyce, Seo Jae-deok, and Lim Sung-jin, who were in charge of side attacks, all showed more than 50% successful attack rates. It meant that not only was the player in good condition, but he also worked well with setter Ha Seung-woo.
Kwon Young-min, head coach of KEPCO, expressed his expectation that “Ha Seung-woo will have more options and his offense will improve” after winning the OK Financial Group match, where Seo Jae-deok and Lim Sung-jin survived. It was proved in the next game, the strong opponent Korean Air.
KEPCO has the best domestic player roster among the seven teams. At the beginning of this season, he suffered from external factors such as rumors of a sale of the club as well as a lack of condition. I’m finally finding myself and shaking up the competition in the men’s team in the V League 안전놀이터
