In a situation where the serve was not working, even the main gun Leo was sluggish.
OK Financial Group lost with a set score of 0 to 3 (20-25, 20-25, 20-25) in a home game against Hyundai Capital in the 4th round of the Dodram V-League Men’s Division in the 2022-2023 season held at Sangnoksu Gymnasium in Ansan, Gyeonggi-do on the 26th. In the last game of the 4th round, he lost by shutout and fell into a two-game losing streak.
Coach Seok emphasized serving before the game, but only two goals were scored that day. He said, “The serve was so bad, and the opponent’s receiving was good,” and “I felt like I had a chance in the third set, but I was caught in the wrong room.”
The main gun Leo was lethargic with 6 points and an attack success rate of 23.08%. It was not like the top scorer (614 points) this season. Director Seok expressed his frustration, saying, “Leo seems to be unable to use his strength. I think I will have to find a way.”
Cha Ji-hwan, who changed his position from an outside heater to an apositive spiker, did his part with 15 points and an attack success rate of 46.88%. Regarding Cha Ji-hwan, coach Seok said, “I think he did well because he is a player with good attack power.”
To reverse the atmosphere, complementing the sub is the top priority. Coach Seok emphasized, “I feel pushed behind in the game after 20 points because of the serve and receive.”
From the 5th round, setter Lee Min-gyu, who has completed military service, joins the team. Coach Seok said, “(with Lee Min-kyu) we will try to increase Leo’s offensive power,” and “we will prepare to increase Leo’s offensive power in set plays.” 안전놀이터
