In Game 1 of the 2018/19 Korean women’s volleyball league (Dodram 2018-2019 V League) playoff finals, the top seed Hungkuk Life Pink Spiders defeated No.2 Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass, at home in Incheon, by a 3-1 (25-13, 10-25, 25-18, 26-24).


The Pink Spiders went ahead in the best-of-five playoff finals against Expressway and now have 50% chance of dethroning their rivals in the V League. This claim comes from a statistical data - in 14 playoffs that have been played so far in the Korean women’s league, a team that took the opening win has won the trophy seven times. Furthermore, from the 2010/11 season, seven out of eight teams that won the first leg have lifted the trophy.

The Pink Spiders were led today by the native player Lee Jae-Yeong who scored 23 points of which nine in the fourth set. Senegalese Fatou Diouck top-scored for Expressway with 33 points but her display was far from convincing - 50.8% excellent attack.

Game 2 is scheduled for March 23.

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
