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…

BRA M: Both foreigners leave Cruzeiro – Sander goes to Russia, Le Roux’s destination unknown

Uriarte is coming to Sada and Otavio too, so they will need probably a new libero and a very good player to replace Sander, Sergio is 40 years old and Sada tried Thiago Brendle but he will be on Sesc next year, so theres a one place for a foreigner player Reply

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

'If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer'. Not only Leal, ALL the reception of lube is terrible. just close your eyes and serve that will be an ace or will be B or C pass. Balaso for me is the real problem, because both Leal and juantorena arent reception especialists, they have a strong attack but they lack in reception. Because of that, you NEED to have a good reception from your libero and balaso simply has one of the worses receptions on libero that i saw. a libero having so many C passes from easy serves or committing mistakes on reception destroy a team, imagine a team that already has a very bad reception like juantorena and leal Reply
