Park Ki-ho, who won the round of 32 at the Welcome Savings Bank Wellbank PBA-LPBA Championship, held at KINTEX PBA Stadium in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province on the 9th, defeated Cygner with a set score of 3:0 with two “finishing high runs” against Cygner.
Park Ki-ho, who connected the first pitch of the first set with four points, allowed seven points to Cygner in the third inning and was dragged to 5-10, but won the first set by finishing with a “high run 10” score to end the opportunity he got in the fifth inning. He then won the second set with a high run of 10 points in the fourth inning, when he was leading 5-4 slightly.
In the third set, Park Ki-ho also finished the game with a 15-3, 3-all victory by filling 15 points with high run 9 points in the third inning, when he was leading 6:3.
Park scored 45 points in just 12 innings on the day, posting a game average of 3.750, far surpassing the previous record of 2.842 set by Cygner in the round of 128. At the same time, he set a record of the third place in the PBA set system. He also raised the possibility of winning the “well-bang-top ranking” (prize money of 4 million won), which is given to players who have the highest average score in a game in every competition.
Park Ki-ho debuted as a challenge tour (third part) in the 2021-22 season and lifted the trophy in four tournaments, and was promoted to the first part of the tour in one season. Although he did not have any significant performance in the first season of promotion, he has been noted for his outstanding performance in the fourth tour (SY Championship) this season.
At the time, he made a huge splash by overpowering candidates including Kang Dong-gung (SK Rent-a-Car), Zan Cha Park (Turkeyye, Blue One Resort) and Lee Sang-dae (Welcome Savings Bank). His day job as a plasterer and waterproofing agent at construction sites also drew attention. Park Ki-ho, who made another splash at the championship, will meet Lee Sang-dae in the round of 16.
In the PBA round of 32 strongest teams, Kang Jung-hwi (SK Rent-a-Car), Lim Sung-kyun (High1 Resort), Kim Byung-ho (Hana Card), and Kang Min-gu (Blue One Resort) made it to the round of 16, which led to strong domestic players. Among those who made it to the round of 16, Javier Palazon (Spain, Huons) was the only foreign player.
Overseas players including Birol Wimazu (Turkiye, Welcome Savings Bank), Yusuke Mori (Japan), and Adnan Wixel (Turkiye) were eliminated. Kim Byung-sup, who defeated Cho Jae-ho (NH Nonghyup Card) the previous day, Jeon In-hyuk and Choi Sung-won (Huons) also suffered a setback.
Meanwhile, in the LPBA quarterfinal match held on the same day, Kim Bo-mi (NH Nonghyup Card) defeated “Danggu Empress” Kim Ga-young (Hana Card) in a set score of 3:1 after a full set. Kim Bo-mi, who has reached the semifinals for the 10th time in her career, is aiming for her first professional victory.
“Well-Bang Queen” Lim Jung-sook, who lifted the trophy in four of the five Well-Bang Championship competitions held since the inauguration of the professional league, advanced to the semifinals by beating Baek Min-ju (Crown Haitai) of the same team 3-0. Lim Jung-sook will try to win the most LPBA championships (six times) in which Kim Ga-young and Throne Fabi compete.
In addition, “Cambodian Express” Slong Piavi defeated Jang Hye-ri 3 to 0 to advance to the semifinals after six tournaments. Slong, who is competing with Kim Ga-young for the most LPBA wins with six wins, is aiming for the lone top place (seven wins) in this tournament. Kim defeated Natsumi Higashiuchi (Welcome Savings Bank), a Japanese powerhouse, to advance to the semifinals for the second time in four years since the first season (2019-20 season). The semifinal match between Kim Bo-mi and Lim Jung-sook, and Srong Piavi and Kim Kyung-ja was held.
