The women’s professional volleyball team Heungkuk Life tested their strengths against a Japanese team in an exhibition match.
Heungkuk Life lost an exhibition match against JT Marvels in Nishinomiya City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, with a set score of 1 to 2 on Saturday. With four weeks to go before the start of the season, Heungkuk Life fielded a veteran duo of Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-ji.
Kim led the offense with a team-high 18 points, followed by Kim Mi-yeon with 12 points. Kim Soo-ji, who played for the first time in this training camp, warmed up with five points. 메이저사이트
However, the opponent was not at full strength in the exhibition game. The JT Marvels had two male coaches in the game due to a lack of players due to national team call-ups.
Heungkuk Life coach Marcello Abondanza was pleased with the performance of Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-ji after the game. “It’s been a while since they’ve played together, but they have a lot of experience, good technique and mental strength, so I think they’ll have a good impact on the younger players,” Abondanza said.
“We’re going to focus on getting our setters and attackers in sync, such as their height and speed, and we’re going to train like a real team to see how stable they can be in all areas, including blocking, attacking, and receiving,” he explained. Heungkuk Life will play one more practice match with JT on the 19th before returning home on the 20th.
