‘Defending Champion’ Wellbang, 3 consecutive seasons of Team League Champion + Integrated 1st place New history!

Another stroke was drawn in the history of the PBA Team League.

On the 14th, in the 4th game on the last day of the 6th round of the ‘Welcome Savings Bank PBA Team League 2022-23’ held at Sono Calm Goyang, Welcome Savings Bank defeated Blue One Resort with a set score of 4-0.

At the same time, he finished the regular season in a splendid way with a report card of first place in the overall league and direct access to the championship match. Captain Frederic Cudron was named MVP of the second season.

Although Blue One Resort lost, SK Rent-A-Car and NH Nonghyup Card, which tied for second place the previous day, lost in the remaining games, automatically advancing to the postseason. 

Welcome Savings Bank, which boasted the dignity of first place in the regular league for three consecutive seasons, took first place in the combined pre- and post-season leagues early this season as well, and advanced directly to the postseason and the championship match. In the previous season (2021-22 season), the PBA Team League postseason lifted the championship cup. 

In the end, with both teams looking forward to February, the last game of the regular league has become a ‘warm-up’. 

Welcome Savings Bank, as expected from the first round, won the match from the first set. In the men’s doubles with Seo Hyun-min in the first set, We Marz scored consecutively and succeeded in overtaking the team 11-7. Afterwards, Kim Ye-eun and Oh Soo-jeong won the second set 9-3 while Seo Han-sol and Kim Min-young faltered on empty hits. 

Han Ji-seung took the climax of the 3rd set. With 11 high runs exploding, it was a great game to defeat Zapata, who ran side by side with 9 high runs, with a difference of 1 point. 

Han Ji-seung is showing great growth to the point of recording a 75% win rate alone by playing in the 5th and 7th sets this season.  메이저놀이터

Kudron, who took over the momentum, joined hands with ‘Little Kudron’ Kim Ye-eun in a mixed match and defeated Kang Min-goo and Throng 9-6, resulting in a complete shutout victory. 

Now that all games have been completed, Welcome Savings Bank ranks first in the regular league with a total of 27 wins and 15 losses, Blue One Resort ranks second with a record of 23 wins and 19 losses, and NH Nonghyup Card also ranks third with a record of 23 wins and 19 losses, but is pushed out of the opponent record.

Welcome Savings Bank Frederic Coudron, who visited the interview room after winning the match, said, “I am happy to finish the regular league well.” I am happy that the championship has been confirmed,” he said with a sense of relief.

He continued, “Because the postseason is also a new competition, I will forget all the games that have been played so far and start a new game with a new mindset.”

The PBA Team League, which has completed six rounds of campaigns, will hold the postseason from February 17th to 23rd.
