In the professional volleyball women’s division, Heungkuk Life Insurance has an important battle to compete for the lead despite the recent measles change of the command tower. Following the resignation of coach Kwon Soon-chan, Kim Ki-jung, the appointed head coach of Sunseon Girls’ High School, declined the position of the new head coach and decided to spend the rest of the season as acting head coach Dae-gyeong Kim. 스포츠토토
Heungkuk Life Insurance will play a home game against Hyundai E&C in the 4th round of the 2022-2023 Dodram V League Women’s Division at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 11th. It is a confrontation between the 1st and 2nd place that will determine the championship this season.
Currently, the difference between the two teams is 4 points. If Heungkuk Life Insurance, which is running second in the regular league (47 points), wins 3 points on this day, it will closely follow Hyundai Engineering & Construction (51 points) in first place by one point.
For Heungkuk Life Insurance, it is a must-win game to win the regular league. However, it is doubtful whether he will be able to play a normal game in the recent turbulent atmosphere. It is in a situation where it is being criticized for a series of incidents, such as the dismissal of former coach Kwon Soon-chan.
Heungkuk Life Insurance made an incomprehensible decision to suddenly sack former manager Kwon Soon-chan, who led the team to second place in the first half of this season, on the 2nd. In response, some argued that former coach Kwon was hardened for refusing to intervene in the appointment of players from the top of the club.
On the 6th, Sunseon Girls’ High School coach Kim Ki-joong, who was appointed as the successor command tower, felt burdened by the current situation and declined the position. Coach Kim said on the 10th, “I am burdened by the current situation that can cause various misunderstandings.”
In the end, Heungkuk Life Insurance decided to spend the rest of the season under the acting manager system of coach Dae-kyung Kim. Coach Kim, who took over as acting manager for the first time at the IBK Industrial Bank match on the 8th, 스포츠토토 suddenly had to shoulder the heavy burden of leading the team.
Heungkuk Life Insurance belatedly issued an apology after announcing the news of coach Kim’s death. While acknowledging the involvement of the top line, he said, “From now on, we will thoroughly block the club’s involvement in game management and fully respect the manager’s inherent authority.”
Even in this cluttered situation, Heungkuk Life Insurance continued its upward trend of four consecutive wins. On the 8th, in the IBK Industrial Bank match, Kim Yeon-kyung, the ‘Volleyball Empress’, and Kim Na-hee, the starting middle blocker, overcame the bad news that they missed due to poor physical condition and harvested 3 points. In the meantime, he is aiming for a lead chase and 5 consecutive wins by winning against Hyundai Engineering & Construction.
Hyundai E&C was in a crisis different from Heungkuk Life Insurance. Yasmin, the main player, has been absent from the team due to a herniated disc and has been absent for the sixth game. For the time being, it is unclear whether he will return, and he has to endure with domestic players.
Apposite Spiker Hwang Yeon-joo brilliantly fills Yasmin’s void. Since Yasmin’s departure, he has been posting double-digit scores in every game he has started, and his contribution to defense is also high.
However, Hyundai Engineering & Construction lost with a set score of 1 to 3 in a head-to-head match against Heungkuk Life Insurance on the 29th of last month without Yasmin. In this game, we want to escape the chase at the same time as revenge.
