Overview

With the pressure of Aoba Johsai at match point, Sugawara is sent into the game. With the plan of trying to keep one of Aoba Johsai's players in check, Karasuno hopes to turn the score around.

Plot

With Aoba Johsai still at match point, Sugawara is sent into the game.

Waiting for the set to begin, Kageyama notices Hinata's focused expression. Kageyama realizes that Hinata gets this expression in the later part of their matches and wonders where such concentration comes from; all the while Tanaka believes that Kageyama is trying to pick a fight with Hinata.

Nervous at the thought of his serve failing, Sugawara takes aim and delivers his serve. The ball heads straight to Iwaizumi and forces the ace to make the first touch after Watari debated with himself if he or Iwaizumi should make the receive.

With Iwaizumi contained, Hinata spots Kyōtani coming from behind Kindaichi. Kageyama jumps to block Kyōtani and Hinata quickly joins in the block, bumping into Kageyama in the process but successfully stopping Kyōtani's attack and bringing the score to a deuce. Though Kageyama is in pain from Hinata bumping into him, Karasuno happily celebrates the block.

Sugawara serves again and Iwaizumi is once more targeted and kept from attacking. The tactic does not go unnoticed by the Aoba Johsai team. Hanamaki spikes but the ball clips the top of the net, going over the blockers. Sugawara dives forward and is able to make the save. Oikawa feels assured by this as Sugawara and Kageyama will not be able to switch positions.

With Karasuno's spikers rushing forward, the Aoba Johsai players assure themselves that if they cannot block the ball they can try to get a one-touch. To everyone's surprise, Kageyama pulls off a setter dump and brings Karasuno to match point.
