The power of the new Samsung Fire came from the fingertips of setter Noh Jae-wook. Samsung Fire extended its winning streak with a victory over Hyundai Capital.
Samsung Fire swept Hyundai Capital 3-0 (27-25, 25-21, 25-17) in straight sets in the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League at Yoo Yoo Soon Gymnasium in Cheonan on Sunday.
With the victory, the team moved to second place with a record of 2-1-1 and five points, especially after beating Hyundai Capital, which reached the championship final after last season’s overall winner Korean Air.
On the other hand, Hyundai Capital, which has lost three straight matches since the start of the tournament, failed to earn any points and remained in last place. Hyundai got off to a dismal start with a -9 set loss ratio without winning a set.
Samsung Fire was led by Yosubani’s 29 points, with Kim Jung-ho adding 10, Son Tae-hoon six, Park Sung-jin four, and Kim Jun-woo three. It was an even performance across the board. We had a 42-38 advantage in attack points and a 7-5 advantage in blocks. They were out-served 3-6, but had 10 fewer errors (14) than their opponents (24).
Hyundai Capital was led by Ahmed’s 20 points, but the rest of the team didn’t contribute. Overall, the team was in need of reorganization as the starting lineup and positions were shaky.토토사이트
Late in the first set, Samsung Fire went up 24-20. Hyundai Capital scored four straight points on Lee Si-woo’s serve to make it a 24-24 deuce. However, the set belonged to Samsung Fire. Yosubani’s attack gave Samsung Fire the set.
At 22-20 in the second set, Samsung Fire touched set point after Yosubani and Kim Jung-ho scored back-and-forth points, before Son Tae-hoon sealed the set with a kill.
The final three sets were off-balance early on. At 8-7, Samsung Chemical extended its lead to 10-7 with a service ace from Kim Jeong-ho, and a combination of kills from Park Sung-jin and Yosubani and an opponent error sealed the match at 18-12.
Samsung Fire will try to make it three in a row against OK Financial Group on Nov. 27. Hyundai Capital will meet KEPCO on the 26th.
