2nd place Hyundai Capital (19 wins, 10 losses, 58 points), with 3 consecutive wins, earned valuable 3 points, narrowing the gap with leader Korean Air (20 wins, 9 losses, 59 points) to 1 point.

Hyundai Capital shook the opponent with a serve
Hyundai Capital pushed the opponent hard from the first set. In 10-10, he scored 4 points in a row, starting with the goal of Oreol Camejo (registered name Oreol). In the process, Heo Soo-bong used a strong serve and recorded 2 serve aces, shaking KB Insurance’s receive line.
Hyundai Capital, who stepped on the 20-point goal first, easily finished the first set with Jeon Kwang-in and Heo Soo-bong responsible for the remaining 5 points. KB Insurance could not play the game as desired from the beginning, with Andres Vijena (registered name Vijena) only scoring 5 points.
In the second set, Lee “Joker” Si-woo showed off his performance. He was substituted in 19-17 and recorded a serve ace, and in the subsequent serve, Jeon Kwang-in scored with a back attack. KB Insurance again caught up with a two-point lead, but Hyundai Capital, who shook off the chase with consecutive goals from Heo Soo-bong and Lee Hyun-seung, was able to secure one point.
KB Insurance, which was in danger of losing the shutout, also worked hard in the third set. After leading slightly until the second half of the 3rd set, the opponent’s pursuit tied the score, and eventually a deuce battle unfolded, but the 3rd set was finished with Park Jin-woo’s blocking and Lee Hyun-seung’s overnet error at 24-24.
Hyundai Capital, who wanted 3 points instead of 2 points, increased their concentration. In the end, the ‘serv’ was the best weapon. In the 4th set, 11-10, the gap began to widen with Viyena’s mistake following Heo Soo-bong’s strong serve ace. Here, Heo Soo-bong once again broke KB Insurance’s will to pursue with a sub ace. Hyundai Capital, which eventually reached the match point, ended the game with Jeon Kwang-in’s C fast attack at 24-18.
A ‘reversal victory’ scenario… Hyundai Capital facing a golden opportunity
On this day, Hyundai Capital had an advantage over KB Insurance in all records. Blocking (KB Insurance 6, Hyundai Capital 13) was more than twice as large, and serve (KB Insurance 1, Hyundai Capital 9) was more overwhelming. This is the reason why I was able to laugh even after recording 9 more crimes than KB Insurance (20).
Compared to KB Insurance, which struggled alone with Villena (29 points), Hyundai Capital joined forces with Heo Soo-bong (28 points) and Oreoll (23 points). In particular, Heo Soo-bong’s attack success rate reached a whopping 66.67%, and Oreol won the triple crown (3 or more each of back-end attack, sub ace, and blocking) for the first time in 7 years since the match against OK Savings Bank (now OK Financial Group) on March 22, 2016. to record) was achieved.
Even at the beginning of the season, it was pointed out that the presence of foreign players was not very prominent compared to other teams, but as time passed, Oreol showed a powerful attack with high RBIs. In this game, he used his strengths to lead his team to victory.
In addition, Jeon Gwang-in (11 points, 66.67% attack success rate) recorded the most digs (11) in the team, helping the team win not only in offense but also in defense. In addition, Choi Min-ho and Song Won-geun, who scored 7 points each including 3 blocks, also performed well.
After Korean Air was completely defeated in the Woori Card game on the 17th, Hyundai Capital took 3 points the next day, so now the ‘reverse win’ scenario is gradually becoming a reality. Even if only one point difference is maintained, it is possible to take the lead in the last confrontation of this season to be held at Incheon Gyeyang Gymnasium on the 5th of next month.
The team that ends the season in second place also gets a chance to play spring volleyball. However, the team that finishes the regular season in first place can physically and mentally play the championship game with more leisure. Attention is focusing on whether Hyundai Capital’s dream can come true.
