Women’s professional volleyball Korea Expressway Corporation beat IBK Industrial Bank of Korea and ran for 9 consecutive wins.

The Road Corporation won 3-2 after a full set match against IBK Industrial Bank of Korea in a visiting match held today at Hwaseong Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do.

Road Corporation gave up the first two sets due to IBK’s strong defensive organization, but after that, they swept three sets and continued their nine-game winning streak.

The 9-game winning streak is the longest winning streak tie for a team by the Korea Highway Corporation.

2nd place Road Corporation recorded 13 wins and 4 losses and 36 points, narrowing the gap with leader Hyundai E&C (48 points).

Kelsey Payne (registered name: Kelsey) of the Road Corporation led both teams to a comeback victory with 38 points, the most for both teams.

6th place IBK Industrial Bank of Korea has lost 4 consecutive losses.

Although he could not break the chain of losing streak, after Kim Ho-cheol took over as manager, he received unstinting applause from home fans for his fierce defense and radically changed concentration.

Unlike the foreign player, Santana was almost absent, and Kim Hee-jin scored 32 points, the most in a single game this season, but could not prevent a comeback defeat.

Coach Ho-cheol Kim, who took charge of the women’s team for the first time, delayed his debut victory again until next time, but raised the expectations of the next game by drawing out the struggles of the players.

In the men’s match at Uijeongbu Gymnasium, OK Financial Group overcame the bad news of Leo’s injury and achieved an exhilarating full-set victory over KB Insurance.

OK Financial Group defeated KB Insurance 3-2.

OK Financial Group maintained fourth place with 10 wins and 7 losses and 25 points.

KB Sonbo, who added 1 point despite the defeat, was 9-8, with 30 points and the same points as leader Korean Air, but fell behind in the number of wins and stayed in second place.

Leo suffered a left ankle injury when he stepped on the foot of KB Sonbo Keita Noumori while landing after attempting a blocking in a 4 set 2-0 situation.

Eventually, Leo was replaced.

Before the injury, Leo flew with 26 points and an attacking success rate of 64.86%.

OK Financial Group could not overcome Leo’s void in the 4th set and gave up the set, but in the 5th set, the Korean players united and won the victory.
