Hyundai E&C, led by head coach Kang Seong-hyung, has built a solid solo system by running in the lead throughout the season. The domestic lineup, including foreign player Yasmin, Yang Hyo-jin, Hwang Min-kyung, and Jeong Ji-yoon, is also ‘over the top’. But lately, the air current is changing little by little.
Hyundai E&C is in first place with 메이저사이트 19 wins and 5 losses (57 points) until the 4th round. It is only 3 points ahead of Heungkuk Life Insurance (54 points, 18 wins and 6 losses) in second place. There are still 5-6 rounds left, so no one knows who will compete to win. Heungkuk Life Insurance has not been able to appoint a new coach after manager Kwon Soon-chan was sacked, but the team is overcoming it with a solid team.
Hyundai E&C, in particular, is slowly feeling the void of Yasmin, the core of the attack. Yasmin missed 10 games with a back injury. In 10 games without Yasmin, Hyundai E&C recorded 6 wins and 4 losses, achieving a win rate of more than 50%. However, they suffered two losses in a row along the way. Considering that Hyundai E&C had only one loss before Yasmin was eliminated, the two losses in a row are a big blow.
Hyundai E&C lost consecutively to KGC Ginseng Corporation and Heungkuk Life Insurance in the third round, but the last round of the fourth round also ended with a losing streak. In particular, on the 24th, against Korea Expressway Corporation, he suffered a shutout loss. Veteran Hwang Yeon-joo held up well and Hwang Min-kyung actively participated in scoring and shared it, but it is slowly facing the limit. Director Kang also expressed concern, saying, “I’m worried about the physical aspect.”
The good news is that we are entering the All-Star break. There was a break of about a week. Hyundai E&C will start the 5th round in earnest, starting with the GS Caltex match on the 2nd of next month. Coach Kang set the 5th round as Yasmin’s comeback point. The key is when and at what point Yasmin returns. Attention is focusing on whether Hyundai E&C’s dominance system can continue.
