Ko Hee-jin’s surprise card Kim Se-in flew, Jeong Kwan-jang also laughed

Jeonggwanjang’s desire to go all the way worked.

Jeong Kwan-jang defeated Heungkuk Life Insurance with a set score of 3-1 (25-19 25-23 20-25 25-15) in the second round home game of the “Dodram 2023-2024 V-League” held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 24th. The two teams, each with one win, will play their final match for the championship match on the 26th.

Foreign duo Jia (30 points, attack success rate 47.46%) and Mega (25 points, attack success rate 48%) of Jeonggwanjang collaborated on 55 points, and Kim Se-in, a short 172cm outside heater (left) helped with 9 points. In Heungkuk Life Insurance, Kim Yeon-koung struggled hard with 22 points (50% attack success rate), but there was a limit. The hope of the head coach of Heungkuk Life Insurance (Italy), Marcello Avondan, who said, “I want to save my physical strength and go to the championship match while my performance has improved,” was also dampened.

Jeong Kwan-jang was hit hard due to missing two key players. Captain Lee So-young who is absent due to ankle injury as well as middle blocker Jung Ho-young who injured his left knee in the first game were also absent. Kim Se-in and veteran Han Song-yi were substituted for the position.

In fact, the “Kim Se-in Card” was a bit unexpected. The focus was on Park Hye-min, who has a lot of experience. The chief of staff Jeonggwanchaek took advantage of this. “Heungkuk Life Insurance would have expected Park Hye-min to play. I want to see how the other team responds,” said Ko Hee-jin, head coach of Jeonggwanchaek.

Kim has stable defense and good serve and receive, but the key is offense. “Without Lee So-young,” Jeong Kwan-jang’s one-two punch is Jia and Mega. Limited attack route leads to easy response from the opponent. Koh expected Kim’s low and fast attack, which penetrates one block easily.

The strategy was effective. After Kim’s quick-open attack was successful in the first set 12-12, Jeong quickly accumulated scores. In the second set, Jeong led 12-8, before losing the tie instantly. However, the balance was broken again at 12-12. Mega and Park Eun-jin’s consecutive open attacks, and Kim’s quick-open attacks widened the gap.
Heungkuk Life Insurances bench got busy. At the 15-18 match, players from the warm-up zone were called for operation time. Despite this, the home team did not allow upsetting. Kim made a match point by using an open attack that deprived Heungkuk Life Insurances Lee Ju-ah of blocking timing.

Heungkuk Life succeeded in counterattacking in the third set. Raina stood out. After blocking the opponent’s attack at 20-18, he succeeded in consecutive open attacks.

However, Jeong still managed to win the game. Kim Se-in served a spike in the fourth set to make it 9-4. As his momentum increased significantly, Jeong was unstoppable and eventually pushed the PO to the third round.
