1st place, but 3 consecutive losses Hyundai Engineering & Construction coach Emotional Hyung “It’s a pity to judge the situation with 20 points ahead”
Hyundai E&C, which has been positioned as the ‘first round’ in the women’s V-League since last season, is slowing down. Hyundai E&C lost with a set score of 1-3 in the 2022-23 Dodram V League Korea Expressway Corporation (hereinafter referred to as Expressway Corporation) home game held at Suwon Gymnasium on the 14th.
Hyundai E&C suffered three consecutive losses for the first time since the opening of this season due to a loss against the road construction. On the 10th, he suffered his first consecutive loss of the season by losing an away game (2-3 loss) against Peser Savings Bank, but he could not break the losing streak at home that day.
Hyundai E&C got off to a good start with the road construction. Brought 1 set first. However, they lost in a come-from-behind game by losing sets 2-4.
It was regrettable for Hyundai E&C that Yasmin (USA), who played the role of the main gun, and Kim Yeon-gyeon, the main libero, were missing. In addition, Hwang Min-kyung, who is serving as a housekeeper in the outside heater position, also missed two games in a row.
He went to the match without Cha · Po. Montaño (Colombia), who replaced Yang Hyo-jin and Yasmin as the main middle blocker, gave strength. However, defeat could not be prevented. It is an unfamiliar situation for the team and the players.
In an interview with the reporters who visited the site after the road construction match, Hyundai Engineering & Construction manager Kang Seong-hyeong said, “The first set went well, but the opponent’s defense improved from the second set, so the game went difficult.”
Coach Kang said of Montaño, who played the second game after joining the team, “I think I still need more time to adapt.”
Montaño scored 20 points, the most on the team that day. I caught 2 blocks and the attack success rate was 33.9%. The offense recorded 8. In the match against Pepper Savings Bank on the 10th, which was the V-League debut, he recorded 13 points, an attack success rate of 37.5%, and 6 offenses.
Director Kang also mentioned the decision made during the third set that day. On 19-19, Yang Hyo-jin attempted an open attack, and Park Jung-ah, a highway construction worker, attempted a block.
However, Hyundai E&C players and coach Kang claim that Park Jung-ah committed double contact in the process. After the rally was over (highway construction took a 20-19 lead due to Park Jung-ah’s successful attack), Yang Hyo-jin, who played the role of captain that day, protested to the referee, and Kang also appealed from the bench. 토토사이트
Hyundai E&C was unable to request a review by using all of the video review opportunities in the set. Coach Kang said, “The last Heungkuk Life Insurance match (February 8) was the same, but the decision that came out in a situation where the score exceeded 20 points is regrettable,” and said, “Because the flow can be cut off.”
The situation Kang talked about was a deuce situation in the second set. Libero Kim Yeon-gyeon was injured while trying to defend. He fell again trying to get up on the court and did not get back up until the end of the rally.
Kim Yeon-gyeon was assisted by the team trainer and left the court and could not play again in the game that day. Usually, in this case, the main referee blows a whistle and stops the rally in order to protect the player (in case of an injured player). The rally will be a no count.
However, the rally did not stop when Kim Yeon-gyeon was injured. Kim Yeon-gyeon suffered a ligament rupture in her ankle and is currently wearing a cast. Coach Kang had protested against the situation in which the rally was not stopped at the time.
Road construction manager Kim Jong-min, who became the winner of the game that day, also talked about the decision. Manager Kim said, “I’m not saying anything because the game is over, but I don’t understand the reading from Catbell’s (USA) attack.”
Again, this is from the 3rd set. Catbell made a push attack and Hyundai E&C tried to block it, but the antenna got hit by the ball and bent. The referee requested a video review, and as a result of the review, simultaneous contact was declared. No points were given to either Hyundai E&C or Korea Expressway Corporation, and it became a no-count (replay).
Director Kim added, “I’m not sure why the reading was done through simultaneous contact.” Earlier, on the 8th, there was a similar situation in the men’s Korean Air and Samsung Firefighting match held at Gyeyang Gymnasium in Incheon.
The ball hit by Lim Dong-hyuk of Korean Air hit the antenna, and the referee requested a video review of the situation. As a result of the reading, simultaneous contact was made and the rally was not counted. On the 17th, Hyundai E&C will start again to escape from a losing streak against KGC Ginseng Corporation at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon. On the 18th, the next day, the Korea Expressway Corporation greets Pepper Savings Bank at the Gimcheon Gymnasium, and challenges for two consecutive wins.
