Yep, you're correct. +1 for extending the discussion to collective nouns, which seems to be the confusion here.

comment A subset of our services were/was? Grammar
Two of those plural matches are "A total of 56% of the teenagers in the subset were girls" and "Four of the 10 items on the frustration subset were implicated". In both these cases, subset is singular. Only one of those matches could be read as having a plural form of subset, "The largest subset are counties with large numbers of racial or ethnic populations".
