Woori Card suffered the 14th loss (14 wins) of the season. Season 41 was made by adding one point to the full set match, but the difference between the points with KEPCO disappeared.
Woori Card’s concerns have grown as foreign player Riverman Agamez has struggled recently. Agamez only scored 8 points and had an attack success rate of 31.25% in the match against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance on the 3rd. Director Shin Young-cheol also worried, “It is true that the sense of rhythm is less than in his prime.”
The sluggish performance of Agamez also continued with KEPCO. In the first set, the score was 1-2, 1-3, and KEPCO’s middle blocker Shin Young-seok was blocked consecutively. The open attack attempted in 10-11 was also blocked by Seo Jae-deok.
Woori Card found a breakthrough with a central attack, strong serve, and blocking. Middle blocker Choi Seok-gi, who showed perfect harmony with setter Hwang Seung-bin at 4-6, scored a quick break, and domestic ace Na Gyeong-bok succeeded in sub-aces at 12-12 and 15-12. Woori Card, which overturned the inferiority at the beginning of the set, stepped on the 20-point high first with a new outside heater added to the score.
There was also a hump. In 23-21, Agamez’s spike, which had a chance to attack after a long time, was blocked by Lim Seong-jin. Agamez also committed offense in the next opportunity.
Our card eventually allowed a 24-24 tie. However, in this situation, Seo Jae-deok of KEPCO took the first set 26-24 thanks to a series of serve and back attack line-over mistakes. 바카라
Our card also struggled in the beginning of the 2nd set. Setter Hwang Seong-bin frequently tossed to other strikers, Na Gyeong-bok and Song Hee-chae, instead of Agamez, and KEPCO blockers saw through this pattern and joined two or three to defend effectively. Our card once allowed a lead of up to 6 points.
Our card changed the atmosphere again with a central attack and serve. Middle blocker Lee Sang-heon scored with a fast break in the 5-11, 7-13 situation, and Choi Seok-gi blocked Seo Jae-deok’s quick open attack in the 9-14. Agamez, who had been silent, successfully attacked in 11-14, and blocked Lim Seong-jin’s quick open in 12-14, leading Woori Card to pursue.
Woori Card, which changed the atmosphere, also strengthened the side attack power by introducing rookie outside hitter Kim Ji-han. After he scored a quick-opening goal in 19-20, he changed the atmosphere by succeeding in a spike serve in 20-20, and in 22-21, Agamez roared as he inserted a quick-opening spike into the opponent’s court at the perfect timing.
The second set was also decided by serve. Na Kyung-bok, who acted as a server in a close game situation, made a set point by serving as an ace across the end line. Woori Card, who seized the victory, took the right to attack from the continued defense, and Song Hee-chae finished and took two sets in a row.
However, the potential of KEPCO, which has been on the rise recently, was not formidable. We gave away all 3 and 4 sets of our cards. The sluggish Agamez was replaced with Han Tae-jun in the second half of the 3rd set, and the 4th set also started from the bench. Even in the 5th set, opponent foreign player Thais Dull Host led the fight with fierce force in the early stages, but Agamez withdrew to the bench at 0-4. In the end, Woori Card gave away 5 sets (score 8-15) helplessly.
On this day, Woori Card domestic striker Song Hee-chae tied the record for the most points scored in an individual game (22 points), but could not laugh at his team’s defeat. Woori Card On December 10, 2021, after the KB loss insurance, it lost 5 years in a row again in 2 years and 2 months. After the game, coach Shin Young-chul did not hide his frustration. I didn’t blame Agamez’s skills or condition. He just sent a message to show responsibility. Our card is in the biggest crisis this season.
