The ‘hidden card’ finally revealed…the power of love, nine straight wins, and the lead in Mercury

“I played to the best of my ability.”

Hyundai E&C won its third round match against the Heungkuk Life Pink Spiders of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Women’s Division with a three-set victory (23-25, 25-23, 25-16, 25-20) at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on Tuesday.

Riding a nine-game winning streak, Hyundai E&C added three more points to its record and remained at the top of the standings with a 13-4 record and 40 points.

Hyundai head coach Kang Sung-hyung said, “There are variables. (Kim) Dae-in has the flu, so (Lee) Na-yeon or (Kim) Sarang will have to step up. The team we didn’t beat in the first and second rounds was 현금홀덤사이트 Heungkuk Life, so we prepared to beat them today (unfortunately). (Kim Dae-in) was quarantined for administrative reasons, but I think we should focus on the next game.”

The starting setter was Kim Sarang. Kang said, “Sarang is ready, and she’s been good in the last two matches. She doesn’t have a lot of speed or movement, but she’s stable. I think she can improve through this opportunity,” Kang said, adding, “It can be difficult to lead alone, so we will rotate her.”

Kim Sa-ra, a second-year player born in 2004, got her chance. She steadily led the team’s offense. The offense was evenly distributed, with Moma scoring 24 points, Yang Hyo-jin 15 points, and Wipawi 14 points. She also scored on her serve to help her team win.

After the match, Coach Kang said, “I thought it would be difficult, but I think she had a strong will to win, as well as a strong will to play. (Kim) Love was the first to come in and did a good job. It was meaningful that several players led the victory.”

Kang added: “I think it’s about the breathing, and Sarangi had a stable toss. Moma and Wifey (Yang) Hyo-jin were aggressive and wide and handled the ball well.” “I said before that I didn’t play a hidden card, but it was Sarang. She was stable in practice, and she played her role well without being nervous,” Kang said with a satisfied smile.

Kang continued, “She was also very aggressive on her serve. I felt confident from that part. My opponent didn’t make any deceptive tosses, but I did my best.” “There are still three more rounds to go, and there is a part of me that can’t change players in terms of breathing. If Sarang makes a stable toss, I think we can give her a chance.”

“Rather than trying to do well, I decided to take it easy and just do what I was doing,” Kim said, “I heard about it two days ago, and I was nervous the whole time. I talked about it even when I went in at the beginning, but as I played, I relaxed.”
