Weekly round-up
ruskicanuk (Romano-British) has taken a firm grip on proceedings in Division A with 5 straight wins. The most likely challenger looks to be nyczar (Scots-Irish) who has 3 wins from 4 starts. Things are much closer in Division B where devoncop (Jewish Revolt) is top after finishing all his matches with 21 points. Morbio (Ptolemaic) needs a 4 pointer in his last match against Triarii (Kingdom of Soissons) to overtake him, but Geffalrus (Palmyran) and Cunningcairn (Indian) could still challenge for the top position if they can put together late winning runs. Two big wins for sunnyboy (Ostrogoth) against fellow promotion seekers cromlechi (Scots-Irish) and Trogilus (Dacian) in Division C has left him as clear favourite to win automatic promotion. cromlechi and Trogilus have yet to play each other in a match that will probably decide second place. General Shapur (Kingdom of Soissons) completed a whitewash in Division D this week with his ninth straight win and lydianed (Gepid) looks well-placed to finish second with 5 wins from 6 starts.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
ruskicanuk (Division A) 5 matches
devoncop (Division B) 7 matches and finished
Morbio (Division B) 6 matches
sunnyboy (Division C) 6 matches
General Shapur (Division D) 9 matches and finished

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 22 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 27 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 33 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 28 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are excellent match completion rates.

Player of the week
sunnyboy (Division C) with 2 wins against promotion rivals this week. :D

Weekly round-up
Snugglebunnies (Abbasid) is top of Division A after racing through 8 of his fixtures and achieving 5 wins. He is being pursued by ruskicanuk (Breton) and CheAhn Byzantine) at the moment. In Division B it is hard to see who is going to stop Sennacherib (Andalusian) who now has 6 wins and a draw from his 7 starts. Mathematically, SpeedyCM (Rus) is best placed to develop a challenge but he is likely to need to win his remaining 6 matches to challenge for the top position. Karvon (Bedouin) sits on top of Division C with 5 wins from 6 starts but deve (Dailami) is expected to make a strong challenge after winning his opening match.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches
Sennacherib (Division B) 7 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 13 out of 45 matches completed
Division B - 29 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 24 out of 45 matches completed :D

Division A is a bit slow, but Division B and C have excellent match completion rates.

Player of the week
Snugglebunnies (Division A) who has posted 3 wins and a draw this week. :D

Weekly round-up
Another 2 wins for Cunningcairn (Egyptian) keeps him on top of Division A. ianiow (of Arabia) suffered his first defeat this week, but he is likely to be one of the main challengers for the title along with pantherboy (Kyrenean Greek) who has won his first match. There is an exciting 3-way race for automatic promotion in Division B where devoncop (Arkanian) is narrowly ahead of deve (Achaemenid Persians) and desertedfox (Egyptians).

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Cunningcairn (Division A) 5 matches
desertedfox (Division B) 5 matches
deve (Division B) 4 matches
devoncop (Division B) 6 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 23 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 24 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates.

Player of the week
deve (Division B) with 2 wins this week. :D

Div C

Karvon - Arab (Bedouin) 300-636 AD (Sassanid Persian 350-476 AD allies) defeated edb1815 - Arab North Africa 1000-1160 AD (Byzantine 988-1041 AD allies) 61-44 for a score of 4-0.

The Bedouins met the North Africans along a road running thru a hilly desert farming district a long scrubby ridge ran down the middle of the field seperating two large farming hamlet, one on the extreme left and the other in about the middle of the Bedouin line. Our right featured another long ridge across the field. It was very rugged on our side and got gentler but more broken by small groves and scrubby patches. A small oasis was nestled in a bowl in the ridge a bit to our right. All-in-all, it was not a very favorable field for cavalry but it would have to do.

We deployed all our infantry on the right on the steep hill; our light foot on the lower slopes backed up by our Bedouin foot on the higher ground. Astride the road between this hill and the nearby farming hamlet we deployed one group of lancers supported by a pair of heavy horse archers. A similar group of horse deployed on the ridge between the two farming hamlets. Another group of lancers and our 2 elephants were placed behind the first farming hamlet as our reserve. A few light lancers were deployed in a screen on both wings.

The North Africans deployed a mixed collection of infantry across the central ridge. A large group of cavalry was deployed on their left and a smaller group of horse on their right. A few light foot screened the left and right supported by a couple of light horse. A few spearmen huddled at the rear as a reserve of sorts.

Our plan was to push our foot forward on our right thru the broken ground. Our right horse would swing out wide around the oasis while our reserve horse and elephants would press on in support of the infantry advance to deal with the opposing massed cavalry. Our left wing would try to work it's way around the enemy right.

Our left wing probe drove the opposing horse back, but failed to land a knockout punch and got tangled up and cut up with the survivors retiring back after a long bitter running fight.

Our right wing thrust was slowed by the broken ground, but our combination of elephants and lancers proved too much and we destroyed or scattered all of the enemy horse, then wheeled to deal with their infantry. Our outnumbered Bedouin foot formed a line in the groves and broken ground on the right ridge to delay the advancing North Africans while our lancers and elephants regrouped and swung around to take them in the flank and rear. Even though flanked, they fought on stoically and survived long enough for the elephants and lancers to envelope and break enough of the enemy foot to collapse their army's morale.
