Park Eun-jin and Jung Ho-young also dominated the center with 15 points (3 blocks, 1 serve) and 10 points (4 blocks, 1 serve), respectively.
Despite the victory, head coach Ko Hee-jin was disappointed. She was disappointed with her first set performance. They lost the first set 14-25.
“We won, but we lacked a lot of things. We need to train more. We always talked about it, but the players forgot to do their warm-ups. I thought it had changed, but it’s a shame. In the end, it’s all about concentration.”
After calling the second timeout of the first set, he told his players, “You guys go out there and play.
“They were nervous and couldn’t find their feet,” Ko said. I knew that if we lost our rhythm, it would be like the first game, and there was no game plan at that point,” Ko said.
“We gave up eight points in the first set to Park Eun-seo, and our players didn’t even realize it. It’s a lot of tension, and it’s my job as a coach to mediate that,” he added.
