As the match continues, Shiga is seen trying to make numerous blocks of Nekoma's attacks. At one point, he is unconsciously lured to one side of the court by Kenma which would allow the Nekoma attackers to be faced with a single blocker but he is quickly ordered to stay in place by Shiramine when he notices what Kenma is planning. Shiga would still try to help in blocking Kai and managed to get a one-touch but it still resulted in a point for Nekoma.

It's at this point that Shiramine would reveal that Kenma had somehow turned the tables on them by making them think that they were still in control of the game but really Kenma was manipulating things all along. For the rest of the match, Shiga continued to help his team as best as he could but Nekoma eventually claimed victory and Sarukawa Tech was removed from the tournament.
