Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and KEPCO

Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and Korea Electric Power Corporation Missed Out on Spring Volleyball, “It’s a Shame the Player Base is Thin”

In men’s professional volleyball, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and Korea Electric Power Corporation all cited ‘thin player base’ as the reason they lost their backs at the end of the regular season.

Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance (5th place in the league) (48 points, 18 wins, 16 losses) and 6th place KEPCO (47 points, 16 wins, 18 losses) will not advance to the postseason regardless of the match held at Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 13th.

Even if both teams win the remaining two games of the regular season,

they will not be able to narrow the gap with the third-place team to within 3 points. 온라인카지노

Currently, 3rd place is OK Financial Group (57 points, 20 wins, 15 losses),

and 4th place is Hyundai Capital (53 points, 17 wins, 18 losses).

In the V-League, a semi-playoff (quasi-PO) single-game match takes place only when the point difference between 3rd and 4th place is 3 or less.

If Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance wins all of its remaining two games,

it can catch up with OK Financial Group by 3 points, but unfortunately,

OK Financial Group’s final opponent is Hyundai Capital, currently ranked 4th,

so Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance cannot escape 5th place.

This season, competition for rankings was fiercer than ever before,

so both Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and Korea Electric Power Corporation are bound to have deep regrets.

In fact, at the end of the 5th round, KEPCO was in 3rd place (47 points, 16 wins, 14 losses),

and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance was in 5th place (44 points, 17 wins, 13 losses) and could aim for semi-PO.

However, KEPCO suffered 4 consecutive losses and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance suffered 3 losses (1 win), missing out on a ticket to spring volleyball.

Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance coach Kim Sang-woo diagnosed,

“It was a situation where we had no choice but to lack the backbone,” and reflected,

“It was not easy to hold out until the end due to the player base and height,

but the training we had in the early part of the season turned out well.”

He said, “It’s disappointing that my performance dropped after the third round.

Kim Jun-woo’s injury also bothers me,” he said.

KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min also expressed regret, saying, “Top-ranked teams have something that warm-up zone players can do as substitutes,” and added, “(In the 6th round), the offense dropped, so the game was over.

“It didn’t go well,” he said.

He added, “The mood was down because we couldn’t play spring volleyball, but I told the players to do their best as it was the last home game.”
