Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers prevailed in a marathon Game 1 of the 2017-2018 Korean men’s volleyball championship Dodram Variety League best-of-five playoff finals against Incheon Korean Air Jumbos.

 

The top-seed Skywalkers won a five-setter, partially 28-26, 23-25, 26-24, 15-25, 18-16, at home against No.3 Jumbos in the opening game of the 2017-2018 V-League playoff finals that lasted as much as two hours and 19 minutes.

The Greek international Andreas Fragkos topped the defending champions with 28 points, while Slovenian Mitja Gasparini scored 29 points (4 aces, 3 kill blocks) and Jung Ji-Seok made 4 kill blocks for the Jumbos.

The Skywalkers and the Jumbos played against each other six times in the regular season and they are tied - 3-3. This is the second season in a row these meet in the playoff finals. Last season, Skywalkers won the series by a 3-2. Today’s game seems to be the introduction to something similar…

ITALIAN CUP M: Perugia retain the trophy after being down 2-0, Lube’s another fail in the final…

Leon is currently the best outside hitter in the world.
Modena is in trouble with Christenson's injury, they desperately need 1st class outside hitter, that is their weakest spot.
Lube has 'too many stars' syndrome coupled with the psychological issue of losing 7 finals in the row.
Trentino and Perugia are the best and their games are decided by what kind of day they have on the court but either team can win. Reply
