“We need to focus more on the process than the result,” says Cha on ‘two straight wins’
Cha focused on the process rather than the result. There are still more matches to play, so he didn’t lower his guard.
GS Caltex continued its winning streak with a 3-1 (25-22, 15-25, 25-22, 25-20) set victory over IBK in the first round of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League at Hwaseong Sports Complex Town on April 24.
Giselle Silva (real name Silva) scored 33 points and Kang So-hwi added 13 points to lead the team to victory. Coach Cha Sang-hyun said, “We’ve now played two games out of many. There are some things that are not satisfactory. We had a reception error that we shouldn’t have made, so I thought we should increase our focus in practice.” Rather than being satisfied, he saw areas for improvement.
The team lost the second set by a large margin, and even the set they won was in jeopardy when they faltered in the late 20s. “My reception was shaky,” Cha said. We need to be steady so that (Kim) Ji-won can play. She’s still young and can’t digest perfectly. I think we need to focus on the position of receiving the first ball from the beginning of the play.”
Silva, who scored 30 points in the previous match against Jeong Kwan-jang, clearly showed his performance as the main attacker. Coach Cha Sang-hyun said, “Our concentration was good after the 20th point. We made mistakes on bad balls, but I think he has all the skills that a main striker should have,” said Cha.
Despite the victory, the team was also wary of IBK. “IBK’s offense hasn’t been perfect yet, so I think we’ll have a tough game if we get in shape,” Cha said.토스카지노
Meanwhile, IBK has lost three straight games. Although Brittany Abecrombie (real name Abecrombie) scored 30 points and Pyo Seung-ju scored 13 points, the team’s breathing was unsteady, and the inability to score in crucial situations proved to be a setback.
Head coach Kim Ho-cheol said, “Overall, it was okay. However, in situations where important balls should go up, they didn’t go up and didn’t fit well, which became an anxiety factor when the setter came late,” he said. “I think if I can improve on these areas, I think I can overcome my handicap because I think I’m low in the middle,” she said.
Despite the loss, Kim Hee-jin returned to the court as a one-point blocker in this match. As for when Hee-jin will return, Kim Ho-cheol said, “I think she can probably start in the second round. She’s been practicing, but we’ll put her in when she feels confident. If something goes wrong, she will have to rehabilitate again. She can be used little by little now, but we still have to wait and see.” He left the room.
