Latest Date from column, if another column contains certain data


I have 2 columns: first column is a multi-select with multiple, the second column are all dates.

I want to pull the latest date by each of the items available in the multi-select

I figure its some combination of If, Large, and contains. but I'm at a loss on how to nest them together
