Heungkuk Life Insurance won a 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 28-26) shutout victory in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Round 5 home game against Korea Expressway Corporation held at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium on the 23rd at 7pm. .
The debut game of director Marcello Abondanza (53), who filled the vacancy of the head coach that lasted for over a month, drew a lot of attention. Attention was focused on the leadership that the ‘world class’ masters who entered the V-League would show.
The key was Heungkuk Life Insurance’s rotation problem. How the team utilizes the “twin towers” of Yelena Mrazenovic (registered name Yelena) and Kim Yeon-kyung has been a hot potato throughout the season. There was a debate over whether or not to aim for maximum attack by arranging the two diagonally to make them unconditionally split into front and back positions. Coach Kwon Soon-chan, who used to use the two side by side, left the team last month, to the extent that the club’s leadership intervened in the selection of players.
Coach Abondanza moved Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena one space in the first set. It’s not as much as the diagonal arrangement that leaves two squares apart, but it reduces the frequency of both standing in the back compared to going side by side. It is also the rotation that former acting manager Kim Dae-gyeong brought out from the second set against GS Caltex.
The result was successful. Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena scored 7 points side by side to take the lead. Kim Yeon-kyung combined 5 points and 2 sub-aces from the avant-garde. Lee Joo-ah also blocked the opponent’s attack with 3 blocks in the center, completing Abondanza’s first victory set in the V-League.
Coach Abondanza continued the second set without change. Heungkuk Life Insurance, who was excited, had a comfortable gap of 12-7 from the beginning as Yelena and Kim Yeon-kyung scored evenly. Heungkuk Life Insurance, who ran away by 8 points while stepping on the 20-point high, took one set in succession without any problems and left only one step to victory.
The 3rd set, which was played with an unchanging rotation, was pulled by the power of the road construction. Heungkuk Life’s counterattack began little by little at 13-17, 4 points inferior. After increasing the defensive concentration and narrowing the gap, Yelena’s back attack tied the score 21-21. The close match continued until three deuces. It was Heungkuk Life Insurance who showed their backing here. Yelena sealed the match with a match point followed by a spike that ended the victory. 바카라사이트
This is the successful debut of director Abondanza. There was no problem with the symbiosis of Yelena and Kim Yeon-kyung in the first rotation he took out. Yelena scored 24 points (41.30% success rate), and Kim Yeon-kyung showed an even distribution with 18 points (45.45%). In the easy scoring production of Ssangpo, the use of other attacking options such as Lee Joo-ah and Kim Mi-yeon was also combined. The first sketch drawn by director Abondanza in V-League was a perfect happy ending.
