Pepper Savings Bank escaped a long 13-game losing streak at home. At the center was Park Kyung-hyun.
Pepper Savings Bank, led by Acting Manager Lee Kyung-soo, held a set score 3-1 (24-26, 26-24, 25-23, 24-26, 26-24, 25-23, 25-23) and succeeded in escaping from 4 consecutive losses and 13 home losses in a row.
On this day, Nia Reed and Lee Han-bi’s performances were also brilliant, but this player’s performance was also indispensable. It was Park Kyung-hyun, who came out as an outside heater.
Park Kyung-hyun, who joined as a founding member of Pepper Savings Bank last season and played as the main outside hitter. He played an active role until the beginning of this season, but from the second half of the second round, he was pushed by Park Eun-seo and stayed in the warm-up zone for a long time. He started 10 consecutive games in the opening game, but started only two games after that, excluding the game on the day.
However, Pepper Savings Bank has not been able to accompany the team recently as Park Eun-seo suffered an injury to the left ankle ligament. In addition to the last KGC Ginseng Corporation exhibition, it was excluded from the Gyeonggi-do entry on this day.
Pepper Savings Bank was in a swamp of 4 straight losses and 13 home losses before the match, so they needed a win more than ever. To make matters worse, Park Kyung-hyun, who had to play both offense and defense, had a heavy burden on his shoulders as starter Libero Oh Ji-young could not play that day due to the agreement reached during the trade. 메이저놀이터

Acting coach Lee Kyung-soo said, “Kyung-hyeon did well today. If Kyunghyun had a lot of trouble, he would have played a difficult game. He held up well in receiving, so I think he won today,” he raised his thumbs up.
Park Kyung-hyun also said, “I am so happy to win during the Lunar New Year holiday. I am happy to present victory to the fans,” he laughed.
Park Kyung-hyun, who has had more crying days than laughing days, but on this day, he laughed to his heart’s content. After the game, he had the best day since his debut, having an interview with the host broadcaster and an interview with a distinguished player.
