“Leo is our team’s ace….”
OK Financial Group lost with a set score of 0 to 3 (21-25, 19-25, 15-25) in the third round match against KEPCO in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Men's Division held at Sangnoksu Gymnasium in Ansan on the 21st. OK Financial Group fell into a 5-game losing streak and recorded a season record of 8 wins, 9 losses, and 22 points.
Everything went wrong when Leo couldn't use his strength. On this day, Leo only scored a total of 2 points, including 1 serve, in the first set. He dropped out at the start of the second set, and came out with a deep loss in the third set, but failed to score a point.
On this day, OK Financial Group's Song Hee-chae scored 10 points and had an attack success rate of 42.86%, while Shin Ho-jin and Cha Ji-hwan each scored 14 points.
It was not easy for OK Financial Group to win as KEPCO had even performances from Tice (17 points), Seo Jae-deok (12 points), and Lim Seong-jin (10 points).
After the game, Ogino Massage OK Financial Group coach said, "There was little blocking, but I think there were some good digs and attack connections. We had a hard time as the opponent showed various combinations after receiving."
Regarding the part where Leo was removed, he explained, "The scoring and attack success rate decreased. Although the opponent is concentrating on Leo, we added a signal team to do a quick combination."
Coach Ogino continued, "I expect Leo to succeed when the team is important. There are times when I leave it to Leo when the team is down. We are preparing various combinations. This is a team with few fast breaks, so it can be a burden on Leo. . Last season, Leo had a high possession rate. If that happens, I think there is a risk of injury. He is our team’s ace, so I expect success from Leo.”
Coach Ogino said, "There was a situation where we had no choice but to add Park Tae-sung in today's game. I thought we should focus on Kwak Myeong-woo and Lee Min-gyu, but we had no choice but to add a third player. Park Tae-sung is working hard, but he has no choice but to complete combinations and side outs. “I need something,” he said.
OK Financial Group will meet with Korean Air in Incheon on the 25th. Coach Ogino said, "I will try to take on a challenging attitude. It is a set sport, so I will try to play a game where I can get one more point. Although we lost today unfortunately, I think we were able to become one mentally. I don't know how the setter will recover, but the side “I’ve increased my out rate and my blocking has dropped, but I think I need to dig while doing it,” he said.
