Through the previous game 1 and game 2, it came out that the difference in power between the two teams was large. However, Korea also needed an opportunity to turn around. Because you can’t helplessly lose in Korea.
To this end, Korea took the lead from the beginning of the game. Sophomores Kim Seo-yeon and Park Ji-soo showed their spirit and added energy to the team. Park Ji-soo scored the first goal of the game with a breakthrough goal, and Kim Seo-yeon gained strength from the outside. As a result, Korea took an 8-2 lead.
After that, Korea faced a crisis with 0-12 runs. The player who broke the flow was also a sophomore. Lee Na-ra broke the opponent’s flow by scoring consecutively from under the goal.
However, it was regrettable that a mistake was made at the end of the quarter and a 3-point shot was allowed. Although they were pushed back by 4 points, Korea’s sophomores did their part well enough to not be discouraged against Japan. Sophomores Lee Na-ra, Kim Seo-yeon and Park Ji-soo combined for 15 points, the total score of the team.
In the second quarter, even Oh Sein scored. He also made a 3-point shot and scored a breakthrough. I ran for a short time, but I scored 5 points and became a strength from the outside. In addition, he helped carry the ball and helped break through Japan’s pressure defense.
Although Korea gave off the atmosphere with a series of mistakes at the beginning of the second quarter, starting with Kwon Na-young’s goal in the second half, they started the chase. At the end of the quarter, Oh Sein’s successful 3-point shot was enough to raise the team spirit. The first half ended 29-36.
However, Korea’s propaganda ended there. Park Ji-soo and Lee Na-ra scored in the 3rd quarter, but the team scored only 10 points overall, tied to the opponent’s defense. On defense, he gave up an easy goal to his opponent after making an error. The score gap widened quickly. I did my best until the end, but the score gap continued to widen. lost the match like that.
Even though we lost all 3 games, there are some achievements. It is a valuable experience. Inara Lee, a sophomore, scored 10 points and became the highest scorer on the team. Oh Se-in also scored 8 points, and Kim Seo-yeon and Park Ji-soo also jointly scored 13 points. Even though we lost this time, we can look forward to the next tournament.

It was the first appearance of the players because there was no international competition for 4 years. However, I hope that this opportunity will help me learn and grow more. I will come out better prepared next time.”스포츠토토
