The goal of Hyundai Capital, which made a bold experiment at the end of the season, is the top of the V-League. Can it block the runway of Korean Air, which is leading the way?
Hyundai Capital won a set score 3-1 in the 5th round home game of the men’s division of the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’ against OK Financial Group held at Cheonan Yu Gwan-soon Gymnasium on the 1st. By winning two consecutive matches against OK Financial Group, the shock of two consecutive losses during the Lunar New Year holidays was washed away. With 16 wins and 9 losses and 49 points, they regained the momentum to pursue the lead.
In the two-game series against OK Financial Group, Hyundai Capital was different from usual. In an away game against OK Financial Group on the 26th of last month, Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong placed Heo Soo-bong in the middle blocker (center) position, which was left empty due to Park Sang-ha’s finger fascia injury, while placing Hong Dong-seon in the apogee spiker (right) position. . Let’s shut out OK Financial Group with firepower that exceeds expectations, and even though Park Sang-ha returned, he put forward the same starting lineup on the 1st. 온라인카지노
At the end of the season when focusing on what you are good at is not enough, the reason why Hyundai Capital came up with a surprise tactic is to stand at the top of the V-League. The gap with the leading Korean Air is quite wide, and it is absolutely inferior with 4 losses in this season. For a reversal, you need to pick up a different weapon than before. Director Choi explained, “The reason I’m watching the current system a little longer is because I’m in the process of going in a better direction.”
The core of the ‘Heo Soo-bong-Hong Dong-seon’ shift is to strengthen attack power through switching. Change positions from time to time according to position rotation. Middle blockers, who are usually left behind, are replaced with liberos, but Hong Dong-seon is missing in Hyundai Capital’s irregular tactics. At this time, Heo Soo-bong moves from middle blocker to apposite spiker and focuses on the attack. Coach Choi said, “It worked well on the offensive side. He was delighted, saying, “In the last two games, the firepower came out beyond what I envisioned.”
The fact that Heo Soo-bong’s offensive power has recently revived is also the background that Choi was able to make a bold choice. Compared to the first round (average of 14 points) and the second round (average of 15.8 points), the average score in rounds 3 and 4 increased to 17.5 points. He quickly adapted to his new position and scored 20 points against OK Financial Group on the 1st. Heo Soo-bong said, “It is fun to play in various positions. He is confident wherever he is,” he said. “We did not let go of our dream of being number one in the regular league. If you do your best in every game, chances will come.”
