Woori Card Agamez scored 21 points, 안전놀이터 the most of both teams, in a match against Korean Air in the 5th round of the Dodram 2022-23 V-League Men’s Division held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 17th, and scored a set score of 3-0 (25-23, 28-26, 25-20) led to victory.
The result was a 3-0 shutout victory for Woori Card, but it was not an easy victory when looking at the contents. As a veteran, Agamez, who has gone through all the pre-natal battles, corrected the faltering team by gaining strength at critical moments.
The first set was important for Woori Card, who had recently lost five matches in a row. However, the anti-aircraft was not an easy opponent. Agamez changed the mood of the team, which was trailing 16-19 in the first set. Woori Card gained momentum by thrillingly reversing Agamez’s consecutive serve aces in front.
In the second set, Agamez’s composure stood out. In the 26-26 deuce situation in the 2nd set, Agamez succeeded in attacking. However, a controversy arose when Jeong Ji-seok’s finger was injured while trying to block and a no-count was declared. Coach Shin Young-cheol and the players strongly protested, but it was not accepted, and the Woori Card players collapsed. It was a situation where the atmosphere could be overturned, but Agamez was not shaken. Unfortunately, Agamez, who lost the goal, immediately succeeded in a back attack and took the atmosphere. And Song Hee-chae’s open attack also took the 2nd set.
At the time of the decision controversy, Agamez also had a lot to say. But he didn’t protest and focused on the game. And he looked like a veteran giving his opinion to his assistant referee at the court change after winning the second set. If Agamez had been excited at the time of the decision controversy, the Woori Card players could have lost their rhythm. However, he calmly responded and prepared for the follow-up play.
Recently, Agamez had a problem with uneven performance due to his rapidly declining form. The difference between good days and bad days was too great. At the age of 39, he lacked a sense of rhythm from his prime. And he often touched his right elbow and looked in pain.
Until the day before the match, Agamez was unable to properly train because of his bad elbow. Fortunately, he was able to start as his condition improved before the game, but he was not in normal condition. However, based on his experience, he played his part at the critical moment and led the victory.
Agamez, who was struggling after the game, smiled as he was congratulated by his beloved daughter.
