The Inter-High match between Karasuno and Aoba Johsai continues. Karasuno has dragged the game into a third set and struggles to keep up the momentum. In a desperate move, Coach Ukai decides to bring out Tadashi Yamaguchi as a pinch server! Could this be the push Karasuno needs to keep the team's hope alive and beat Aoba Johsai?
