Reporter Park Dae-ro = Women’s professional volleyball Korea Expressway Corporation is on a winning streak after replacing foreign strikers. With evaluations that the replacement was made at the right time, attention is focusing on how far the road construction will be able to improve its performance and ranking.
The road construction won a complete victory 3-0 (25-21 25-20 26-24) in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Pepper match held at Pepper Stadium in Gwangju on the 12th.
Although there was a hurdle, there was a new foreign player, Catbell, in the road construction. Catbell became the team’s top scorer that day, posting 22 points, including 3 back attacks and 2 blocking. There were only 7 crimes, and the attack success rate was 43.28%.
Catbell also led the victory by scoring 20 points, including 3 blocking, in the KGC Ginseng Corporation match on the 6th, the first match after joining.
As the winning streak continues, this foreign player replacement seems to be evaluated as a success.
Katarina, who was released on the 4th, stayed at the bottom of the V-League foreign players in various offensive indicators. Due to the ups and downs of Katarina’s performance, the road construction often collapsed at the decisive moment. 카지노사이트
It is presumed that the Korea Expressway Corporation made the decision to release Katarina after the defeat against the weakest Pepper Savings Bank on December 31 last year. The Korea Expressway Corporation predicted that it would win easily against Pepper Savings Bank, which suffered 17 consecutive losses after the opening of the season, but suffered a blow.
Katarina only scored 15 points while Pepper foreign player Nia Reid scored a personal record of 38 points. Nia Reid landed 17 successful rear attacks while Katarina only hit 1. Moreover, Katarina did not catch a single block, and her attack success rate was only 36%.
In the end, Kim Jong-min, director of road construction, released Katarina and brought in Catbell, and the result is evaluated as a success so far.
With Catbell joining, Expressway Corporation can expect synergy with existing members such as Bae Yoo-na, Park Jung-ah, Jeong Dae-young, Lim Im-ok, Jeon Sae-yan, and Moon Jeong-won.
Road Corporation, which is on a three-game winning streak, is currently in third place with 32 points. There is a gap between 1st place Hyundai Engineering & Construction (53 points) and 2nd place Heungkuk Life Insurance (48 points), but if you work well with Catbell, you are expected to be able to try to reverse in the playoffs and championship finals at the end of the season.
