Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass entered the playoff finals in the Korean women’s volleyball league (Dodram 2018-2019 V League) for the second consecutive season.

 

The second seed Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass bounced back from 0-2 against No.3 GS Caltex Seoul Kixx in a decisive Game 3 of the playoff semifinals in V League – 3-2 (19-25, 21-25, 25-16, 25-14, 15-11). The fact that all three games ended with a tie-break show how difficult this semifinal matchup was.

GS Caltex bravely held today knowing the fact that their best scorer Aliona Martiniuc was once again unable to play. The Moldovan opposite sustained a knee injury prior to Game 2. Prospect outside hitter Kang So-Hwi took the role of the leader for GS Caltex, scoring 27 points. Senegalese Fatou Diouck highlighted for Expressway with 26 points, waving her ex-club on departure from the playoffs.

In the finals, Expressway will face top seed Hungkuk Life Pink Spiders. The last time these two met for the championship title was 13 years ago. The series will start on March 21.

CEV awards unprecedented prize money for 2019 Champions League winners

Re: @Youshen
Probably because the final consisted of only two teams, so a dream team wouldn't really be representative of the champions league and a bit unnecessary, but that's just my opinion :) Reply
