On the east flank, the Rebel Jager had not only arrested the Pandours' advance through the woods, but had driven them back out again. This was however, more than balanced by silencing of the Rechburg guns. So heavy were their looses that the survivors had to abandon have the ordnance as they made of to the rear.
Having edged the Rebels, barring the Chateau garrison, off the Chateau Ridge, and forced the enemy army within a restricted perimeter; the Rechburg guns having been put out of action, the Imperialist stood ready all along the line to begin the decisive assault. The Archduke felt certain that right now the fate of Ulrichstein lay teetering in the balance...
At this point he game was adjourned. Neither of us realised it would be three weeks before we could resume and conclude the action. So far the Rebel Alliance right flank and right-centre had been forced back, and the Rechburg guns put out of action. But all this had come at a price, Imperial and Electoral losses so far having been the heavier overall.
