Moma’s attack brought them to serve and then they scored five straight points on Wipawi’s serve.

Hyundai E&C setter Kim Dain distributed the ball well to Jeong Ji-yoon, Yang Hyo-jin, and Moma, and the score increased to 20-18 after a block by Pepper Savings Bank’s Park Jung-ah.

At 22-20, Jeong Ji-yoon’s timed attack and an opponent error created set point, and Moma’s follow-up attack completed the comeback.

Pepper Savings Bank led by as many as 15 points, but lost the match due to a series of serving errors and lack of depth.

At 21-21, Moma and Yang Hyo-jin scored two points apiece to complete the 3-0 shutout win in straight sets.

Hyundai E&C became the first women’s program to surpass 5,000 team blocked shots (5,09).

The league’s bottom-ranked Pepper Savings Bank suffered its eighth loss of the season (2-2) as the match exposed its lack of depth.
