“Maybe even spring volleyball…” Coach’s change of scenery shakes up the standings
The Hyundai Capital Skywalkers extended their winning streak to five games.
Hyundai Capital won their fourth round match against the Samsung Fire Bluefox of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Men’s Division 3-1 (22-25, 25-23, 25-23, 25-18) at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on Sunday.
Hyundai Capital has won five straight games to improve its record to 9-13-1 and 31 points on the season. 온라인카지노 They moved up the standings from sixth to fourth.
The team has been on the rise since the firing of coach Choi Tae-woong last year. Acting head coach Jin Soon-ki said, “If Heo Soo-bong had changed his position to outside hitter in the offseason, I think he would have had the same skills as now. He started to improve in the third round against Woori Card. He needed about two and a half rounds. The timing was right, and Jeon Kwang-in didn’t perform well due to injury, but the plan worked, and Kim Myung-kwan fit in well, and the sum was right. Ahmed came back from the African Championships. I think the timing was right in the training process.”
The flow continued in the rivalry game. Ahmed led the way with 30 points and a 67.50 percent attack percentage, while Heo Su-bong and Jeon Kwang-in each scored 14 points with an attack percentage of over 60 percent. Choi Min-ho had 10 points, including four blocked shots, and Cha Young-seok had seven points, including three blocked shots, as he stopped Yosubani’s offense at key moments.
Hyundai Capital tasted victory over Samsung Fire in the V-Classic Match for the first time since March 2, 2023, when the teams met in the sixth round last season.
“We just tried to hold on and win,” Jin said after the match, “We’re working well together. We’ve also been talking more about what we want to do in the middle of the game, and I think that’s a positive thing.”
Hyundai Capital is seven points behind third-place Korean Air (12W9L, 38 points).
“I think the players feel the same way, and maybe we can have hope that we can go to spring volleyball if we try harder, and we’re moving towards the best case scenario that we haven’t dropped a point in five games. I think it was a game that gave us hope.”
There were 3,284 spectators at Chungmu Gymnasium on the day, surpassing the 3,267 who attended the game between Hyundai Capital and KEPCO on December 24 last year at Yoo Yoo Soon Gymnasium in Cheonan.
“I know the event was organized by the club, but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen youths come and join us. It was great to see the students waiting for us after the game, cheering us on, and high-fiving the players. I’m willing to work with them in any way to promote volleyball in the future.”
