Although he slipped once with the opportunity to take the lead, he reconfirmed the elements that he had to keep in mind for the rest of the season.
Heungkuk Life Insurance eliminated the difference between the first and second places with a shutout victory in the home game against first place Hyundai E&C on the 7th. Hyundai E&C also lost an away game against Pepper Savings Bank on the 10th, increasing the possibility of a change in the lead. For Heungkuk Life Insurance, the home game against IBK Industrial Bank on the 11th was a golden opportunity. 안전놀이터
Heunggeuk Life Insurance was very strong against IBK this season. It was a win until the 4th round. No points were ever conceded. Heungkuk Life Insurance was well aware that the more opportunities there were, the more carefully and thoroughly prepared it was, but on this day, the game could not be played as intended. In the end, they lost to IBK by a set score of 1-3.
It was a bout that clearly revealed what Heungkuk Life Insurance needed to supplement. Heungkuk Life Insurance players are also well aware that stable game operation is possible only when goals are scored frequently on the serve and there are few errors. Kim Yeon-kyung also said, “The game works well when the serve goes in well.” Heungkuk Life Insurance Supervisor Kim Dae-gyeong intended to shake IBK’s receiving line with a serve, but the target Pyo Seung-ju held up better than expected with a receiving efficiency of 36.11%. The bigger problem was inside. Contrary to the serve score that was only one, the number of serves reached seven.
The attacking development of the setters was also not smooth. Heungkuk Life Insurance increased Lee Won-jung’s participation when the attack pattern of the existing setter Kim Da-sol was read by the opponent. As a result, Kim Yeon-kyung and setter’s breathing improved, resulting in a change in attack share. However, in the match against Industrial Bank of Korea, Lee Won-jung and Kim Da-sol split their participation, but were blocked by Industrial Bank of Korea blockers every time. On this day, Heungkuk Life Insurance only had 4 blocks, while Industrial Bank of Korea flew with 15.
Heungkuk Life Insurance players had to endure the aftermath of the sudden dismissal of former manager Kwon Soon-chan by the club on the 2nd of last month. Nevertheless, it did not lose its competitiveness in the lead fight. It is the result of the remaining staff and players working together.
Until recently, Kim Dae-haeng kept the formation he used as former manager Kwon for a while to avoid tactical confusion for his players. But he wasn’t just stuck with maintaining tactics. By the time the opponent read the numbers, he began to find answers through various attempts, including adding tactical changes. It is typical that he dispersed the attack share that was biased to Yelena by placing Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena, who were used together every time, on a diagonal. I wonder if acting manager Kim will be able to find a trick again this time.
