Suwon Hyundai E&C, the “King of Unrelated”, who has been leading the way for 100 days in the women’s division of the professional volleyball’Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’, faced the biggest crisis of the season.
As of the 8th, when the 5th round is in progress, Hyundai Engineering & Construction allowed a tie with Incheon Heungkuk Life Insurance, who gave them their first shutout loss of the season the previous day, with 21 wins and 5 losses and 60 points, but managed to keep the lead in the number of wins. After the start of the season, the women’s division’s most consecutive wins tie-in 15 consecutive victories at a speed, but the lead is unstable due to unexpected bad news.
Hyundai E&C, which boasted the strongest power with great firepower and height, began to show signs of cracking as foreign striker Yasmin Bedardt broke away from power due to a herniated disc surgery at the end of the third round. Daejeon KGC (2-3) and Heungkuk Life Insurance (1-3) suffered the first consecutive loss of the season.
Until this point, there was a lot of points earned, and second place Heungkuk Life Insurance had some time to spare. Moreover, despite Yasmin’s absence, his eldest sister Hwang Yeon-joo, Yang Hyo-jin, Jeong Ji-yoon, Hwang Min-kyung and others performed beyond expectations and kept the lead.
However, Hyundai E&C, which regained its strength and won 5 consecutive wins, lost to Seoul GS Caltex (2-3) and Gimcheon Korea Expressway Corporation (1-3) at the end of the 4th round, recording its second consecutive loss of the season. To make matters worse, the sense of crisis began to materialize when Yasmin, who was expected to return from the 5th round, did not recover.
As a result, the club eventually gave up on Yasmin and took an emergency blood transfusion with Ivone Montaño (188 cm), a former Colombian national team member. Montaño, who entered Korea on the 5th, had to sit in the crowd at the Heungkuk Life Insurance match on the 7th to watch his team’s complete defeat due to problems such as issuance of an international transfer agreement (ITC) and registration procedures. 메이저놀이터
It is now up to Montaño whether Hyundai E&C, which is in crisis, will be the leader and become the champion. This is because the domestic players are tired from continuing the forced march without Yasmin, and the struggling team has to be saved from crisis due to the lack of a solver at the decisive moment.
Prior to the Heungkuk Life match, Montaño said, “I feel burdened by joining the leading team in the middle. It’s a problem I have to overcome. I will adapt quickly to the team and be of help,” he said. “The V-League has good defense, so I will discuss with the coaching staff how to play the game.”
Hyundai E&C set the record for the most consecutive victories (15 consecutive victories) in the V-League women’s division last season and a new record for points in one season (82 points, 28 wins and 3 losses), but the post-season was not held due to Corona 19 at the end of the league, so they did not have the championship trophy and did not have the ‘regular’ I only got the title of ‘League 1’. The players who have been thinking about the regret of ‘unrelated’ are thirsty for the championship with Suseong, who ranks first in the regular league.
