The start of the second set also brought a lead in Pepper Savings Bank’s series of offenses. Park Kyung-hyeon and Lee Han-bi’s receive was stable, and Nia Reid added strength in the attack. GS Caltex was unable to launch the desired attack amid receiving anxiety. I took out Eunji Choi and turned Jiyoon Moon to an apogee, but it didn’t have much effect.
GS Caltex gave strength. From 9-15, the opponent’s consecutive mistakes, Kang So-hui’s quick open, and the opponent’s attack mistakes caught up to 5 points in a row and caught up to 14-15.

Then, Nia Reid and the opponent’s net touch made a tie. An unknown match continued even before each set.
