Han Su-ji (35, GS Caltex)’s iron wall blocking and Lee So-young (29, KGC Ginseng Corporation)’s hustle play shone in the ‘Monday Night Match’, which lasted for 2 hours and 22 minutes.
GS Caltex beat Ginseng Corporation on the 9th at Jangchung Gymnasium with a set score of 3-2 in the 4th round home game of the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’ women’s division. GS Caltex (9-11, 28 points), who won the home game in 32 days, was able to widen the gap with Ginseng Corporation (8-12, 26 points) to 2 points.
It was a fierce battle with a deuce situation in 3 sets. Opposite Spiker (Light), MoMA (GS Caltex) and Elisabeth (Ginseng Corporation) scored 29 and 39 points, respectively, but there were separate protagonists who made a great match. Middle blocker (Center) Han Su-ji performed an impregnable block blocking the opponent’s ace’s attack, and outside hitter (Left) Lee So-young delighted the fans with her devoted defense. 메이저놀이터
Captain Han Su-ji is an indispensable presence at GS Caltex, where the middle blocker lineup is weak and there are many young players. On this day, he scored a total of 11 points, including 8 blocked points, the most for an individual in a single game. In particular, she blocked the opponent’s main gun Elisabeth’s attacks 5 times. It was a performance down to the first place in blocking this season (total 63, 7.88 per set). After the game, he said, “I wasn’t greedy for blocking,” and “I didn’t catch it well in the last confrontation, but I tried to figure out what was wrong while watching the video. He was trying to get the motions and the timing right.”
In Ginseng Corporation, Lee So-young’s defense shone. He posted 15 points while also making the most digs (24) and receives (16) on the team. In particular, at the end of the second set, the hustle play of going back and forth to the left and right ends of the court to clear the opponent’s attack stood out. Without his defense, the game would have likely ended in a one-sided victory for GS Caltex. Han Su-ji praised her, saying, “When I saw So-young throw herself and dig, I thought, ‘I’m still far away.’”
