Women’s professional volleyball Korea Expressway Corporation lost all of the league’s first place Hyundai E&C and second place Heungkuk Life until the second round. They are in third place in the league with 7 wins and 5 losses in the season and 21 points, but their competitiveness was weak to jump to the top.
Korea Expressway Corporation will play the first match of the 3rd round against Heungkuk Life Insurance in the 2022-23 Dodram V League at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 13th. If you win 3 points, you can narrow the difference with Heungkuk Life Insurance to 6 points, but if you lose, you have to deal with IBK Industrial Bank (21st), which has recently been on the rise with a broken momentum.
Korea Expressway Corporation coach Kim Jong-min, who kept the top rank until the 2nd round, said, “The performance level of the concept before the opening is not coming out, but the results do not seem to be bad. Overall, the performance of other teams does not seem to have improved. I don’t know,” he said. He continued, “First of all, you have to beat the top teams to go up. I’m telling the players, ‘Let’s go all-in in this game without thinking about what’s next’.”
Korea Expressway Corporation has the highest average age among the seven teams. The experience of veteran players is a strength of the team, but there is a variable called stamina. Director Kim Jong-min is well aware of this part and is putting more effort into it.안전놀이터
