A big match for first place… Heungkuk Life Insurance pursues Hyundai E&C by one game
Professional volleyball women’s Heungkuk Life Insurance caught up with Hyundai Engineering & Construction by one game. As a result, a big match was held on the 7th for the first place.
Heungkuk Life Insurance won a complete victory 3-0 스포츠토토 (25-23 29-27 25-22) in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s KGC Ginseng Corporation away game held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 3rd.
Heungkuk Life Insurance, second in the league, chased Hyundai Engineering & Construction (60 points) in first place with 19 wins and 6 losses and 57 points by 3 points.
This gave Heungkuk Life Insurance another opportunity to catch up with Hyundai E&C.
In fact, Heungkuk Life Insurance could have pulled down Hyundai Engineering & Construction last month and rise to the top of the league, but failed. If Hyundai E&C fell into a 2-game losing streak in the absence of foreign player Yasmin’s injury and Heungkuk Life Insurance beat Ginseng Corporation on the 25th of last month, the difference in points could have disappeared. However, Heungkuk Life Insurance was caught by the Ginseng Corporation.
In the meantime, Hyundai E&C, which reorganized its battle lines, defeated GS Caltex on the 2nd and ran away again. Then Heungkuk Life Insurance also took revenge on Ginseng Corporation that day and caught up again with a 3-point lead.
In the midst of this, the two teams meet again like fate on the 7th. The venue is Suwon Gymnasium, the home stadium of Hyundai E&C. In terms of opponents this season, Hyundai E&C leads with 3 wins and 1 loss.
If Hyundai E&C wins, it can widen the difference by up to 6 points, further increasing the chances of going straight to the championship match. On the other hand, if Heungkuk Life Insurance wins, the difference in points will disappear and the 1st and 2nd places may change depending on the set gains and losses.
The attention of volleyball fans is expected to be focused on what results Hyundai Engineering & Construction, who lost Yasmin, and Heungkuk Life Insurance, who lost their manager, will come up with on the 7th.
