Lim Dong-hyuk blocked Villena’s attack and Korean Air, which ran away with a 20-14, 6-point lead, approached victory without providing an excuse for pursuit.
The last one was decorated with a reverse electrode that reversed the 7-point difference. Korean Air was in a position to worry about the 5th set with 5-12. However, as Jeong Ji-seok and Lincoln scored one after another, the gap was gradually erased.
Korean Air, who caught up to 24-23, took the game to deuce with Lincoln’s open attack after the defense.
Korean Air took the match point with Vijena’s offense at 24-24. Kim Min-jae blocked Viyena’s attack to end the match.
KB Insurance ended its three-game winning streak as Villena scored 29 points, the most among both teams, but the rest of the players failed to contribute.
Usually, at the end of the V-League season, the lower ranks are often humiliated. This is because it becomes a focus target for teams aiming to advance to the postseason. In the bloody ranking competition, if you fail to accumulate victory points against the lower ranks, the probability of failure is bound to be high.
But this season is different. The game is shaken by the rebellion of the lower ranks. In particular, the rebound of Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which is at the bottom of the men’s division, is strong. It is no longer a ‘victory vending machine’. Rather, it attracts attention as a casting boat that holds the fate of ‘Spring Volleyball’.
Samsung Fire & Marine has recently won 4 consecutive wins. Won the last match of round 4 and all three matches of round 5. Starting with two consecutive victories against Woori Card, he caught leading Korean Air, followed by a shutout victory over OK Financial Group, which was busy on the way. In particular, it was impressive to show off a strong back-and-forth in the full-set Korean Air match. It was completely different from the beginning of the season when it was weak to hold on.
The stabilization of each position is a factor in the uptrend. In particular, setter Lee Ho-gun and striker’s breathing improved. Not only foreign player Ikbairi, but also left striker Kim Jeong-ho, who was acquired in a trade during the season, is reliable. On top of that, rookie Kim Jun-woo occupies a spot as a middle blocker (center), and libero Lee Sang-wook’s receiving and defense are solid. As organizational skills were established, the sticky volleyball that Samsung Fire & Marine Manager Kim Sang-woo aimed for became possible.
Samsung Fire & Marine will challenge for a 5-game winning streak at home on the 15th. The opponent is the 2nd place Hyundai Capital. Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance is the only opponent that has not been surpassed this season. Out of 4 losses, they won only 2 sets. This is the reason why Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, whose pride has been damaged, is crying out for victory. 바카라
