Until the beginning of this month, the possibility of IBK Industrial Bank of Korea entering spring volleyball was not high. In particular, in the 5th round, the gap widened as they suffered consecutive losses against competing teams, Korea Expressway Corporation and KGC Ginseng Corporation.
However, on the 11th, IBK Industrial Bank defeated Heungkuk Life Insurance, who was aiming for the lead, with a set score of 3-1 on the expedition and succeeded in rebounding. Then, it overpowered the rival team GS Caltex and inflated hopes for a leap in the rankings.
For IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, the upcoming 2nd place Hyundai E&C is the biggest challenge and opportunity. Against Hyundai E&C, we will play the last game of round 5 at home on the 22nd and the first game of round 6 in Suwon on the 25th.
Hyundai E&C, which had been leading throughout the season with 15 consecutive wins in the opening season, recently fell into sluggishness and gave way to Heungkuk Life Insurance.
Ivone Montaño was urgently transfused in place of Yasmin Bedart (registered name: Yasmin), a foreign player who left due to a back injury, but the replacement effect has not yet been shown. If you can get the maximum points against the faltering Hyundai E&C, it is not impossible to advance to the miraculous spring volleyball.
