Poor Card hits Baden corps this time, not the Austrians

Austrian cavalry unlucky to fail Opportunity Charge on enemy flank, and then lose melee. The battle could still go either way, but the advantage is now with the Bavrians

Austrian infantry continue to skirmish with village, but to no effect. They are on “Engage” orders and can not storm the village without “Attack” orders.

The Austrian hussars failed to charge enemy flank and then lost the melee and retired Shaken. It is likely that the Bavarian cavalry will Rout them next turn
