The fierce battle for first place in the professional volleyball women’s division is expected to continue this week.
As of February 13, Hyundai Engineering & Construction (21 wins, 6 losses, 61 points) and Heungkuk Life Insurance (20 wins, 7 losses, 60 points) are fighting with a difference of one point.
Hyundai E&C built a leading system by winning 15 consecutive wins in the opening season. However, foreign player Yasmin continued to miss due to a back injury in mid-December last year, allowing Heungkuk Life Insurance to pursue.
To make matters worse, Libero Kim Yeon-gyeon recently suffered an ankle injury and is unable to play. Hwang Min-kyung, an outside hitter, also has a bad back.
Hyundai E&C hurriedly recruited Montaño, who is playing in the Turkish league, as a substitute to strengthen its strength.
However, Hyundai E&C was caught by the lowest-ranking Pepper Savings Bank on the 10th. Montaño only scored 13 points in the game he came out to adapt to the V-League, and his attack success rate was only 37.5%.
Now, Hyundai E&C needs to concentrate on every game.
On the 14th, Hyundai E&C will escape from a losing streak against Korea Expressway Corporation at the home court, Suwon Gymnasium. This is the time when Montaño and Yang Hyo-jin, the center of his team, need to be promoted. If Hyundai E&C cannot change the atmosphere, it may be difficult to win first place.
Road construction is not an easy opponent. Expressway Corporation has a strong offensive power, and has defeated Hyundai E&C in the 4th round confrontation. 온라인바카라
On the 17th, Hyundai E&C will face off against KGC Ginseng Corporation, led by Elisabeth, the best foreign player in the league.
