GS Caltex caught Hyundai E&C in 686 days. The protagonist of the victory was ace Kang So-hui.
GS Caltex won the home game against Hyundai E&C in the 4th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 20th with a set score of 3-2. As a result of this day, it ran 3 consecutive wins and rose to 3rd place, overtaking Korea Expressway Corporation. Season 11 wins 11 losses (33 points).
Kang So-hui was responsible for 25 points (48.89% attack success rate), the most in the team, including 3 blocks. It was the performance that led to the victory of Hyundai Construction in 686 days after March 5, 2021.
Kang So-hui said after the game, “Hyundai E&C is really hard to beat. When we meet Hyundai E&C, there are many cases where we can’t do our thing and stop it. Today, Yasmin and Moma were all out, so I made a different tactic, but it feels like I managed to win by using dragons.”
Why did GS Caltex become smaller after meeting only Hyundai E&C for nearly two years? Kang So-hui said, “Hyundai E&C has high blocking and is solid. There is no gap. In addition, the defense is also good from behind, so it is really difficult for the striker to score.” It is more difficult than other teams because the striker has to break through it with strength. But I got through it well today,” he said, smiling brightly. 메이저놀이터
In this match, there was a variable that foreign ace Moma left due to a left knee injury during the 4th set. Moma is scheduled to undergo a hospital checkup on the 21st. However, for Kang So-hui, this was rather an opportunity. He said, “I thought that I should hit all of Moma’s share. I was excited because I like hitting a lot. That’s how I came to life.” He smiled.
GS Caltex, which suffered ups and downs at the beginning of the season, is regaining its prestige in the top 3 with an upward trend of 6 wins and 2 losses in the last 8 games. Regarding this, Kang So-hui said, “From the second half of the third round, the coach promised me that if I won the game, I would give me a day off unconditionally. So it seems we are going up. I have to go to the director and ask him to take a day off tomorrow,” and left the interview in a good mood.
