With this victory, Korean Air was the first in the league to reach 20 wins (8 losses) and record 59 points, widening the gap with second place Hyundai Capital (52 points, 17 wins and 10 losses) to 9 points.

In the women’s match held at the Suwon Gymnasium, the leader Hyundai E&C was caught by the third place Korea Expressway Corporation and fell into a three-game losing streak. On the 10th, Hyundai E&C, which was in danger of giving up the lead for the first time this season after losing to Pepper Savings Bank, the lowest in the league, managed to keep first place thanks to IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, which ranked 6th, holding Heungkuk Life Insurance in 2nd place on the 11th. However, the road construction also lost with a set score of 1-3 (25-21 21-25 20-25 20-25). Hyundai E&C, which stayed with 21 wins and 7 losses and 61 points, could not escape the pursuit of second place Heungkuk Life Insurance (60 points, 20 wins and 7 losses). If Heungkuk Life Insurance wins the Pepper Savings Bank match on the 15th, it will rise to first place.
Hyundai E&C committed 28 crimes and destroyed itself by ‘mishandling’, which is twice as many as the road construction, which only had 14.
Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s new foreign player Lee Vone Montaño scored 20 points, the highest in the team, but the attack success rate was low at 33.96%. As for the road construction, Catherine Bell scored 22 points and Park Jung-ah scored 18 points, and the two jointly scored 40 points.
The 3rd place road construction (47 points, 16 wins, 12 losses) widened the gap with the 4th place KGC Ginseng Corporation (41 points, 13 wins, 15 losses) and took a step closer to spring volleyball.
