The V-League, which opened on October 22 last year, ended its 4th round schedule on the 27th.
The V-League will hold an all-star game at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 29th, and the second half of the season will be held from the 31st.
The first half of the 1st to 4th rounds can be summarized as ‘the two-team system of Hyundai Engineering & Construction and Heungkuk Life Insurance in the women’s division’ and ‘Korean Air’s solo run in the men’s division’.
As both men and women are fighting for third place, fierce postseason competition is expected to continue until the end of the season.
In the first half of 24 games, Hyundai E&C won 20 wins (4 losses) and accumulated 57 points.
Looking at Hyundai E&C’s performance alone, it is at a level where it can play a ‘solo’.
Hyundai E&C also recorded a decent record of 6 wins and 4 losses in 10 matches where foreign striker Yasmin Bedart (registered name Yasmin) suffered from back pain.
However, Heungkuk Life Insurance pursued fiercely. Heungkuk Life Insurance ended the first half with 54 points (18 wins, 6 losses), narrowing the gap with Hyundai E&C to 3 points.
The timing of Yasmin’s return is expected to be the biggest variable in the lead fight.
The battle for third place is just as fierce as the battle for the lead.
Korea Expressway Corporation (38 points, 13 wins, 11 losses) won the final game of the first half, GS Caltex on the 27th, after a bloody battle of deuces in every set, and won with a set score of 3-1 to keep its 3rd place.
However, the gap with 4th place KGC Ginseng Corporation (35 points, 11 wins, 13 losses) and 5th place GS Caltex (33 points, 11 wins, 13 losses) is not large.
GS Caltex coach Cha Sang-hyun said, “The rankings will not be decided until the 5th round is over. It is a really fun composition for fans.”
In the V-League, if the difference between 3rd and 4th places is less than 3 points, a semi-playoff will be held.
In fact, Korea Expressway Corporation, KGC Ginseng Corporation, and GS Caltex, which have become difficult to pursue first and second place, plan to do their best in the second half to secure third place or narrow the gap with third place.
Korean Air, which is aiming for the combined championship for three consecutive seasons (1st place in the regular league and championship match), has 55 points (19 wins, 5 losses), beating 2nd place Hyundai Capital (46 points, 15 wins, 9 losses) by 9 points in the first half. Closed.
Considering the power of Korean Air, which has not suffered a single loss this season, it is quite a big gap.
In the men’s division, where the lead fight leans toward Korean Air, attention is drawn to the fight for third place.
3rd place Woori Card (38 points, 14 wins, 10 losses) and 4th place OK Financial Group (37 points, 12 wins, 12 losses) fought a fierce battle for third place at the end of the first half. 5th place KEPCO (32 points, 10 wins, 14 losses) is also struggling to rise to the mid-table.
