South Korea's women's handball team has reached the final as it seeks a third straight Asian Games title.

South Korea won the Asian Games women's handball semifinal against China 30-23 on Wednesday at the Zhejiang Gongsang University Sports Center in Hangzhou, China. The final will be held on Friday at 6 p.m. at the same venue.

South Korea hasn't lost to China in women's handball in nearly 20 years. The last time was a one-point loss (25-26) in the semifinals of the 2004 Hiroshima Asian Championships. Prior to this match, South Korea had a significant lead in the all-time series against China with 34 wins, three draws and two losses.

South Korea and China compete in the women's handball semifinal match during the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Zhejiang Gongsang University Sports Center on March 3 in Hangzhou, China. South Korea advanced to the final.

But on China's home turf, South Korea struggled early in the match. The 3,000-plus Chinese fans in the stadium kept chanting "chayo" (加油) to cheer on their team, and the Chinese players, encouraged by the one-sided support from the crowd, pressured the Koreans with their fast-paced handball, scoring on fast breaks after eating goals. At the end of the first half, Korea led by one point, 15-14.

In the second half, Korea's guanrok shined. Two minutes into the second half, China scored a goal to tie the score at 15-15, but Korea scored 13 unanswered goals over the next 20 minutes, holding China to four, to extend their lead to nine points (28-19). The Chinese players, who had played non-stop in the first half, seemed to have lost their stamina and their footwork became heavier, and the Korean players skillfully penetrated the gaps left by the Chinese players.

Ryu Eun-hee (33), who plays in the Hungarian Győrli, considered the highest level of handball in Europe, scored a team-high seven points, followed by captain Lee Im-kyung (32) with six and Kang Kyung-min (27) with five.

South Korea has won seven of the eight titles since women's handball became an Asian Games event in 1990 in Beijing. Their only 'no gold' came at Guangzhou in 2010, when they finished with a bronze medal. 카지노사이트존
