Agamez’s struggle, that was all… Woori Card’s spring volleyball ended in vain

was the same as a year ago. There was no ‘revenge’. Woori Card also knelt down to KEPCO in the semi-playoff.

Woori Card, the 3rd place team in the regular league, won a set score of 1-3 (19-25, 18-25, 25-25-19-25, 18-25, 25-25) to KEPCO, the 4th place team in the regular league, in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League semi-playoff held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 22nd. 18, 22-25), and the playoff advance was frustrated. KEPCO, which won the Jangchung expedition, will play a playoff (2 out of 3 games) against Hyundai Capital, the second-place team in the regular league, from the 24th.

Woori Card, which was deprived of the atmosphere from the beginning of the game, recording 8 errors in the first set alone, solved the game with difficulty. It seemed to make up for the disappointment by bringing the 3rd set, but Riverman Agamez (registered name Agamez) was unable to break the momentum of KEPCO by fighting alone.

Woori Card and Agamez, which were pushed back from the beginning, were ‘not enough’ with a one-man show.

KEPCO overwhelmed the opponent with 1st set ‘Ssangpo’ Tais Leul Host (registered name Tais) and Seo Jae-deok at the fore. The two players scored 9 and 5 points respectively in the first set alone. In Woori Card, Agamez (9 points) and Na Gyeong-bok (5 points) fought hard, but each time they were caught in the wrong room.

The second set followed a similar flow. Agamez and Na Kyung-bok added 6 points and 3 points, respectively, but it was difficult to find another attack route. There was no scene where the flow was brought about by serving or blocking. As he couldn’t use his strength even once, he was driven to the brink of shutout defeat.

At least, Park Joon-hyeok and Lee Sang-hyun’s blocking at the beginning of the 3rd set succeeded in reversing the atmosphere. In 5-3, Song Hee-chae’s quick open and Agamez’s serve ace further widened the score gap. Starting with Agamez’s quick open at 12-10, he scored 4 points in a row to make up for the defeat in the previous two sets.

It was good even when I took a 4-1 lead in the fourth set. After that it was a problem. Seo Jae-deok’s quick open, Song Hee-chae’s Beom-sil, and Lim Seong-jin’s quick open allowed a tie. In 6-5, after Thais’ open attack, Na Kyung-bok lost the lead, followed by Shin Young-seok’s block.

In 21-22, even Agamez’s attack was blocked by Thais, and Woori Card’s chances of advancing to the playoffs became slimmer. In the end, the game ended with Lim Seong-jin scoring and Thais blocking at 22-23. As soon as the game was over, some players collapsed on the court, and Agamez blushed.

The same result as a year ago, there was no player to support Agamez

The player who scored the most points across both teams was Agamez (30 points). Even though the attack success rate (47.9%) was less than 50%, the attack share (51.6%) was over 50%, and it did its part. In the second half of the 4th set, he added 1 blocking and even achieved a triple crown (recording 3 or more each of back attack, blocking, and serve aces).

That was all. The performance of domestic players was not visible. Na Gyeong-bok (12 points), who scored double digits, cannot be said to have gone crazy with expectations. He didn’t shake the opponent with his serve, and he didn’t help the team with his height. 토토사이트

In the end, the sluggishness of domestic outside hitters who had to lead offense and defense with Na Kyung-bok was painful. Song Hee-chae (4 points), who started in the 1st to 4th sets, and Kim Ji-han (1 point), who was put in as a substitute, all performed poorly. In particular, Song Hee-chae failed to live up to the team’s expectations with a low attack success rate (25%).

Even a year ago, Woori Card faced KEPCO in the semi-playoff. Even then, the home team was Woori Card, which ranked third in the regular league. At the time, the first set was taken away after five deuce battles, and then the second set was taken. At that time, in addition to Leo Andrich (registered name Leo, 27 points), domestic players such as Na Gyeong-bok (18 points), Kim Jae-hui (14 points), and Song Hee-chae (10 points) were perhaps more powerful than this year.

Excluding the 2019-2020 season, where the season was not completed due to Corona 19, I experienced the spring volleyball stage for four consecutive seasons. However, it was far from winning this season as well. Even losing in the semi-playoffs for two consecutive seasons from last season is bound to be a big shock. During the off-season, it seems that a reorganization is needed.
