Korean Air’s men’s volleyball team, which was missing a number of key players due to early-season injuries, used “gum in place of teeth” for its second straight win .Korean Air completed a ‘shutout’ 3-0 (25-22 25-22 25-19) victory over visiting KEPCO in the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Men’s Division at Suwon Gymnasium on the 2nd.This is Korean Air’s first back-to-back wins of the season, following a 3-2 victory over KB Insurance on the 28th of last month. With three wins, two losses and 10 points, Korean Air moved into sole possession of third place, pushing OK Financial Group to fourth.
Korean Air was without the “duo” of Jeong Ji-seok and Goo Seung-seok due to injury, and even main man Lincoln Williams (real name Lincoln) was out of the line-up on this day due to a bad knee. With Lincoln only used briefly as a one-point server, Korean Air was virtually without a foreign player, but Im Dong-hyuk, Lee Jun and Jeong Jung-yong filled the void admirably .Im Dong-hyuk led the offence with a team-high 20 points and a 67.86% attack success rate.
Lee Jun, who joined the team in 2021, was particularly impressive, scoring a game-high 16 points and pulling down six blocks on his own. Jung Jung-yong, who formed a “triangle formation” with Lim Dong-hyuk and Lee Jun, added 13 points, including three service aces. Korean Air more than doubled KEPCO’s (13) blocked shots on the day (5), dominating their opponents in the height department.
KEPCO made several attempts to break out of the losing streak, including switching to an apogee spiker to ease the receiving burden on Thais Lesser Host (real name Thais). However, Tais was subpar, scoring just 16 points on a 44.12 토토사이트 per cent attack percentage.
