Middle blockers Lee Sang-hyeon and Kim Wan-jong recorded 3 blocks each, taking the lead in gaining a 9-2 advantage in the height fight.
A fierce seesaw game took place from the first set, befitting a match between the two teams, which had been tight against each other with 2 wins and 2 losses in their 4 matches this season.
When Korean Air took a 3-point lead with Jeong Ji-seok’s consecutive goals, Woori Card succeeded in scoring consecutively during Agamez’s serve, returning the game to the starting point.
In a tight 22-22 situation, Song Hee-chae’s performance gave Woori Card a chance to win. Song Hee-chae launched a diagonal attack to evade the two-man blocking, and then hit a sub ace to lead to a set point.
Woori Card gave up 1 point due to a sub mistake, but Na Kyung-bok finished the first set with a quick open.
Woori Card, which succeeded in overpowering the baseline, continued the atmosphere. Our card, which created a gap from the beginning of the second set, ran away from 14-11 to 17-11 at once.
Lincoln Williams (registered name Lincoln) blocked Kim Wan-jong, and after the defense, Agamez’s attacks continued to score.
Korean Air tried to change by replacing Yoo Kwang-woo and Lincoln with Han Sun-seon and Lim Dong-hyuk. And as this strategy hit, I followed it step by step and made 22-22.
Woori Card gave Korean Air a set point as Song Hee-chae’s attack went off the court, but Agamez scored and drove it to deuce.
In the situation of 26-26, a controversial scene came out. Korean Air’s Jung Ji-seok collapsed due to an injury in which his little finger was bent during the blocking process.
The volleyball rules state, ‘If a serious accident occurs while the ball is in play, the referee will immediately stop the game and allow medical staff to enter the court. Then the rally begins next’.
When Jeong Ji-seok collapsed on the court and complained of pain, the line referee waved a flag and informed the head and assistant referees of his injury. However, the game continued, and it was only after the ball was dead after Agamez’s attack that a replay was declared.
From Woori Card’s point of view, they lost a chance to score, and Korean Air had no choice but to feel the frustration of waiting for the rally to end in a situation where they needed quick treatment. 카지노사이트
