The third set was the deciding factor. Although we fell behind by 5 points, we caught up one point at a time and won the set. The changes made in 7-12, such as removing Ponpoon and inserting Kim Ha-kyung, were successful. 스포츠토토
After the game, Coach Kim said, “Ponpoon’s toss was too shaky in the beginning. Because accuracy was poor, we brought in Ha-kyung Kim, and it worked out well. Ha-kyung’s toss has accuracy and speed. “He had a sense of stability because he had been working with the players for a long time.”
He said, “Winning or losing depended on who made fewer mistakes. Both teams are not in normal physical condition. It was a situation where if you let your guard down even a little or missed one or two things, your score would increase. Several player substitutions were made. “Every player who entered did well,” he said.
Middle blocker Lim Hye-rim scored a personal high of 10 points. Coach Kim said, “He is a hard-working player. While sending Su-ji Kim, he saw the potential in Heungkuk Life Insurance and brought him in as a compensation player. He is a player with potential. “I think he will show a much better side in the future,” he said with a smile.
Abercrombie’s open attack was also highly decisive. Coach Kim said, “Abercrombie was physically weak in the second set. I felt like I had a cold. I think that if we attack boldly like we did today, it will be easier for the rest of the players. He is a good player and a player we need on our team. “It is frustrating because he is a player who guides the tee well even when the ball is bad, but as an outsider, I hope he will give more energy to the players,” he said.
