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.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
