The name ‘Lim Seong-jin’ praised by both the director and the ace.
It bloomed in the third year season.
Professional volleyball KEPCO succeeded in advancing to PO by winning a set score 3-1 in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Men’s Semi-Playoff (Jun PO) against Woori Card held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 22nd안전놀이터.
With a thrilling away victory, he pierced the single game. Last season, we defeated Woori Card, which we encountered in the semi-PO single-legged confrontation. Create a pleasant match and go to the top round.
There were also many other harvests. Several players performed well. At the start, there was Tais Deul Host (registered name Thais), who showed off his power, and Seo Jae-deok, who shone in offense and defense. In the midst of the two’s achievements, KEPCO led the atmosphere even though it was an expedition with a score of 2-0.
Here, the main character who decorated the finale appeared. It is Lim Seong-jin, a ‘young blood’ who inherited the baton of his seniors. It appeared like a comet in a crisis where one set was taken away by Woori Card’s great counterattack. He scored 6 points and had a 75% attack success rate in only the 4th set. In particular, his pipe attack, which created a match point in the second half of the tense set, was enough to evoke admiration. It was a nutritious performance that made up for the presence of Seo Jae-deok, who was tired of intense defense.
Lim Seong-jin said, “I didn’t want to go to the final set, so he felt he had to end it here. He only wanted to win, and (lower) Seung-woo hyung gave me the ball well,” he said, looking back at the 4th set. “In the beginning, Jaedeok hyung and Tais took a lot of share, so I could see their stamina dropping. Since I didn’t hit the ball a lot, it worked well for me to feel a sense of responsibility to hit at least one more.”
Director Kwon Young-min, the winner, was equally happy to see his pupil’s performance. Coach Kwon said, “Sung-Jin will grow further with this game. When you perform like this in a tough game, you gain confidence. He will do better in PO,” he smiles.
Seo Jae-deok, who walked the court together, laughed and said, “He has a good-looking face, but he is also good at volleyball.” The director evaluates (Sung-jin) as timid, but today I didn’t see any of that.” Then, he continued to pour out praises, saying, “In the 4th set, I was rather leaning on Sungjin.”
KEPCO, which created a harmony of age and youth, is heading to Cheonan, where Hyundai Capital, which ranks second, is waiting. KEPCO’s challenge to step on the pedals to advance to the championship match, which has never been stepped on, begins on the 24th.
