They usually cheer for each other, but an invisible war of nerves unfolded.
On the afternoon of the 27th, the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League’ match between GS Caltex and Korea Expressway Corporation was held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul.
From the first set, both teams were tight. During GS Caltex MoMA’s attack in the first set, which was leading 24-22, coach Cha Sang-hyun requested a video review of Catbell’s touch on the net. As a result of the reading, it was recognized as a no-touch, and the difference was 24-23 by 1 point.
During GS Caltex’s Kang So-hui’s attack, Nam Young-soo, the referee, gave a sign acknowledging the score.
Coach Sang-hyun Cha quickly moved to the opposite court. However, the road construction manager Kim Jong-min asked the referee and assistant referee to read the blocker touch. In the meantime, he was also seen blocking director Cha Sang-hyun, who moved to the front of him for a court change, with his body.
It was a signal that coach Kim Jong-min sent to coach Sang-hyun Cha, his friend of the same age, that the game was not over yet.
As a result of the video review, the blocker no-touch reading came out and became a deuce, and coach Sang-hyun Cha returned to the GS Caltex court with an embarrassed expression while alternately looking at the referee and assistant referee again.
In the first set, GS Caltex laughed at the end of the deuce. After returning from injury, MoMa scored 7 points and Yoo Seo-yeon scored 5 points.
In the second set, the road construction worked hard. Catbell and Park Jung-ah each scored 7 points, making the match the starting point.
Korea Expressway Corporation won the 3rd set after a deuce, and in the last 4th set, after a fierce match up to 33-31, Expressway Corporation defeated GS Caltex and won 2 consecutive victories.

Highway Corporation won against GS Caltex with a set score of 3-1 (24-26, 27-25, 28-26, 33-31). Catbell scored 30 points and Park Jung-ah scored 29 points, leading the team to victory.
After the game, GS Caltex coach Sang-Hyun Cha expressed his regret, saying, “If we had gone to the 5th set, we would have changed the game time, but coach Jong-Min Kim is not aware of it.”
