Escape from crisis. GS Caltex took last place and escaped from a losing streak.
GS Caltex won with a set score of 3-0 (25-14, 25-22, 25-16) in the 5th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 season V-League Women’s Division Pepper Savings Bank held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 5th. GS Caltex, which had recently been on a three-game losing streak, added three points by winning a shutout against Pepper Savings Bank, which was the start of the losing streak. With a season record of 12 wins, 14 losses and 36 points, it overtook KGC Ginseng Corporation and rose to fourth place.
I was in a difficult situation recently as I fell into a losing streak. Director Cha Sang-hyun is known to have been under a lot of stress lately. In particular, it was rather burdensome to meet the opponent Pepper Savings Bank, who suffered a shocking come-from-behind defeat in the 4th round. It could be seen that the atmosphere of GS Caltex, which is losing streak even though the opponent is at the bottom, is down that much.
After the match, coach Sang-Hyun Cha sighed with relief, saying, “The overall atmosphere was a lot off. Had we had bad results until today, it could have been more difficult, but we got over the hurdle with difficulty.”
“I also played the game in a bad state. While under stress, I thought that I was having such a hard time, but the players would also have a hard time. I thought about this and that for about two days, and I felt sorry for the players because I seemed to have scolded them for saying something I hated so much. Director Cha said, “I think I was looking too far ahead. I decided to do it while reading as much as possible. I also expressed my apologies to the players.” It is also a regret for the pressure the coach himself received due to the team’s performance this season. 메이저놀이터
GS Caltex now meets with Korea Expressway Corporation and KGC Ginseng Corporation in turn. These are the 3rd and 5th most important teams in the ranking jump toward spring volleyball. Manager Cha Sang-hyun emphasized, “The first thing is to raise the mood. I think we should give a break. If we miss these two games in the 5th round, the future prospects are not good. We have to throw the last game.”
