“I can’t believe it! It’s a dream come true. Mom! We won,” cried Suwon’s star player So Go-gi. “We couldn’t have done it without our fans.”

“Jeonju Bibimbap made a strong showing and progressed to the finals for the first time ever, only to suffer a heartbreaking defeat.

“We did our best and put up our top game, but Suwon posed a tough challenge. There’s always next year,” said Jeonju coach Go Chu-jang.

The final score was Suwon Galbi 16 and Jeonju Bibimbap 13.
