As soon as Korean Air won the 1st and 2nd sets, it already secured 1 point and went directly to the championship match regardless of the results of the remaining 3 games including that day.

With a strong serve, the KB Insurance receiving efficiency was tied at 26.32%, and the game was easily solved.

At 13-12, Kwak Seung-seok put in a quick open, and Han and Jung Ji-seok scored blocking points to widen the score gap.

After giving up two points, Lincoln Williams (registered name Lincoln)’s back attack, Cho Jae-young’s two consecutive blockings, and the opponent’s error tied up and ran away 21-14.

The home team, KB Insurance먹튀검증, struggled in the second set as if they couldn’t give their home to someone else’s party, but it was not enough.

In 22-20, Korean Air accumulated set points as KB Insurance Andres Viyena (registered name Viyena)’s serve Beomsil and Kwak Seung-seok’s serve ace crossed.

KB Insurance pursued at the last minute with Korean people’s quick attack and opponent’s mistake, but Jung Ji-seok finished the set with a time lag attack.

It was the moment that confirmed the first place in the men’s regular league for three consecutive years.

I could have been careless in my excitement, but Korean Air took it to the third set.

At 22-21, which continued the seesaw game, Lincoln put in a back attack and Jung Ji-seok blocked the opponent’s rain or attack and reached the match point.

Then, KB Insurance Hwang Kyung-min’s attack left the court and the game ended.

It is the second three-game losing streak in the men’s division after Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance (2011-2012 season – 2014-2015 season).
