The 4th set of the 4th game of the women’s volleyball championship, where Korea Expressway Corporation was dragged 8-12 to Heungkuk Life Insurance.
The set score was leading 2-1, so Kim Jong-min, coach of Korea Expressway Corporation, called Park Jung-ah, the main gun, to the bench in consideration of the 5th set match. In 15-19, foreign player Catherine Bell (registered name Catbell) was also removed.
However, when the score difference was maintained at 16-20 even in the absence of two wing strikers, coach Kim had a feeling of ‘just in case’.
It was thanks to veteran middle blockers Jeong Dae-young and Bae Yuna and replacement striker Jeon Sae-yan who did not give up and fought on an equal footing with Heungkuk Life Insurance.
In the end, coach Kim reintroduced Park Jung-ah and Catbell. And overturned 25-23, ending Game 4.
Coach Kim, who we met after the game, recalled, “Honestly온라인카지노, I gave up. I didn’t want to put in Park Jung-ah if the score gap widened further.” .
Park Jung-ah felt the same way.
“Honestly, I didn’t know how to catch it,” said Park Jung-ah, “before the fifth set, I thought (the coach) decided that it was better to run a little on the court than to sit on the bench.”
However, his victory factor was that he looked far into the 5th set and was not impatient. Doing my best for each ball without being aware of the score difference led to a dramatic reversal.
Park Jung-ah and Catbell scored a decisive goal in the 18-22 match, where they exchanged 2 points each after being replaced.
After Catbell had a successful back attack, Park Jung-ah put in a sharp diagonal attack.
Park Jung-ah, who succeeded in a diagonal attack, trudged toward the bench and gave a high-five with the coaching staff.
Actually, it was not the intended ceremony. Park Jung-ah said, “I almost fell, but he gave me a high five because he was on the bench.”
In 23-23, which made a tie thanks to Bae Yoo-na’s second consecutive opening, Catbell’s irregular attack shone.
She poked a loophole in Heungkuk Life Insurance with her left spike to create a match point, and then put a straight attack on the same course with her right hand.
Catbell, who burst into tears after the game, recalled, “I had no choice but to score points no matter what kind of ball came up and what kind of pitch it was.”
She said, “There is no place where my fingers, knees, and back do not hurt.”
Manager Kim Jong-min praised the fighting spirit of the players, saying, “We have come to this situation because the players worked hard. There is nothing more to say.”
Now, the final game of the championship match will be held on the 6th at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon, the home of Heungkuk Life Insurance.
Park Jung-ah, who confessed that she felt intimidated in front of Heungkuk Life Insurance fans filling the stadium, showed confidence, saying, “If I laugh and have fun like now, I won’t be discouraged even if I go to Incheon.”
