KEPCO vs. Hyundai Capital in ‘Desperate physical battle’
Two days ago, on the 24th, the first leg of the 2022-2023 V-League men’s playoffs was held in Cheonan. The result was a 3-2 victory for Hyundai Capital.
The 148-minute bloody battle was recorded as the longest game in the men’s playoffs ever. The players coming out of the gym were in a different state from their normal struggles. I was exhausted.
After a day’s rest, the two teams meet again. This time, the match will be held at the Suwon Gymnasium. The game starts at 2:00 PM. If KEPCO wins today’s game, the series will continue to Game 3 on the 28th. Both teams head to Cheonan. If Hyundai Capital wins, the championship match against Korean Air will begin on the 30th.
Today’s match is a desperate physical battle. I think it will be a game where you can see the end of your mental strength. In the away team, Hyundai Capital, Oreoll scored 23 points, Moon Seong-min scored 18 points, and Heo Soo-bong 17 points in the first game. It was a game in which coach Choi Tae-woong’s selection card for Moon Seong-min, which he decided on the morning of the game, was right, and Oreol’s skill was shining. Hyundai Capital still has the Park Sang-ha card. There is a possibility that the hidden card will be taken out today. In this case, Heo Soo-bong will move to Apposite Spiker, but physical strength is the key. Heo Soo-bong also poured his stamina in the first match. It recovers relatively quickly, but it does not take long for the physical strength to be discharged once it has been lost. Early today’s start-up is more important than ever. I am also interested in the starting lineup of Hyundai Capital. This is the second checkpoint.
First of all, KEPCO, the home court, is at the edge of a cliff. It is a situation where we gave up a game that could have been caught. Seong-Jin Lim scored 22 points, and it was a game in which he emerged as the main player of the team. Seo Jae-deok (19 points) and Thais (17 points) supported the back. However, Tais was very weak and his knee condition was not good. As his movements slowed down, his offense and defense were completely different from his previous good times. This is the biggest checkpoint in today’s game. It was clear that Seo Jae-deok was also in a state of low physical strength. The interest is in how long KEPCO’s one-two punch will stay on the court today and how active it will be.
Today’s match is a physical fitness match. This is in line with the story that the direction of victory and defeat can change depending on the use of replacement cards. In the first game, Hyundai Capital played without any special replacement cards, except for setters Lee Hyeon-seung and Kim Myeong-gwan, and wing spikers Hong Dong-seon and Kim Seon-ho.
On the other hand, KEPCO had more replacements. The middle blocker position was changed from Jo Geun-ho to Park Chan-woong, and setter Kim Kwang-guk continued playing time. Park Cheol-woo also appeared on the court, and there was a wide range of replacements, including Gongjae Department and Koo Gyo-hyeok. I wonder what kind of management I will do today.안전놀이터
In such a big game, the timing of the video reading must also be chosen well. If you’re not sure, you might want to save it. In the 5th set of the first match, where Hyundai Capital led 12-10, the moment Hyundai Capital Oreol’s attack was successful, KEPCO’s bench tried to use video reading, but the opportunity was already blown. Oreoll’s attack was successful, but his left foot crossed the center line during the landing process. 13-10 and 12-11 is a huge difference in the match.
Also, the match referee must maintain his concentration until the end. Situations such as net touches, back attack fouls, position faults, and center line overs must be accurately pointed out. In this way, the fairness of winning and losing can be secured.
Today’s game is, after all, a mental battle. A team that smiles at the end of a desperate game is one team. Who will laugh in the confrontation of fate? The match starts at 2:00 PM at the Suwon Gymnasium. It is a game to look forward to.
