‘A chronic problem?’ Receive that led KEPCO’s winning streak “Seo Jae-deok blocked it well”￼
After escaping from the losing streak, even receiving, which had been anxious throughout the season, showed a much better appearance.
KEPCO won a set score 3-0 (25-19, 25-13, 25-22) in a home game against OK Financial Group in the 4th round of the 2022-2023 Dodram V League men’s division held at Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 13th. After breaking the chain of 9 consecutive losses, he continued the upward trend of 2 consecutive wins.
In the last three matches in a row, they had a close match that led to a full set, but there seemed to be no physical problem. KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min said after the game, “I was worried about my physical strength, but maybe it was because we won the Woori Card match, and the players’ movements seemed light.”
Receiving, which was considered a chronic problem this season, was also stable. KEPCO is at the bottom of the team receiving (30.46%) this season. However, in the game that day, he played comfortably, recording a receiving efficiency of 35.71%, 12.27% higher than that of OK Financial Group (23.44%).
On this day, coach Kwon entrusted Seo Jae-deok, an outside hitter, with the role of receiving the opponent’s serve. He said, “When making the order, (Seo) prepared for Jae-deok to receive a strong serve,” and evaluated, “Jae-deok held up well.” On this day, Seo Jae-deok’s receiving efficiency was low at 27.27%, but he endured the opponent’s target well, such as making 5 decisive receives.
As the receive revived, the attack also exploded. KEPCO showed off superior firepower than OK Financial Group, such as attack (49 points – 42 points) and attack success rate (60.71% – 38.15%). Director Kwon praised him, saying, “As the receive went well, setter Ha Seung-woo was able to use the left and right sides well.” 온라인카지노
The performance of Thais, a foreign player, was also dazzling. The Thais scored 22 points, the most of both teams, and took the lead in winning streak with an attack success rate of 65.38%. Director Kwon said, “Tice is a player who always plays his role,” and he expressed anticipation, saying, “I hope he will do better in the future.”
It was a bitter defeat for Seok Jin-wook, head coach of OK Financial Group. After the game, he said, “The flow was good at the beginning of the game, but I couldn’t catch the first set and gave it up,” and blamed the loss on himself, saying, “My mistake in giving the flow while contemplating whether or not to take time in the middle.”
Then, he pointed out the defeat, saying, “The opponent was good at receiving, and we made a lot of mistakes.” Director Seok regretted, “Leo did well at the beginning of the light, but his success rate gradually declined and he struggled.”
Outside hitter Song Myeong-geun made a successful comeback in the previous game after being discharged, but in the game that day, he showed a lethargic figure with 4 points and an attack success rate of 25%. Coach Seok explained, “When the team atmosphere was bad, I sat down together. In particular, I was shaken by the opponent’s serve target.”
