The Fight
Round 1: Charging Silchester knights are stopped by a flaming barracade before them and begin to retreat. Many a horse and man are roasted alive, but the village pyromaniac, Bernard, is crushed beneath Silchester hooves.
Round 2: Retreating Silchester knights are demolished by a cavalry charge from the rear led by Sir Pedivere and Sir Kendrick. The Silchester forces take 75% casualties, and those not killed are captured in the rout. Sir Finnian’s unpopular uncle is slain, but there are no other Salisbury casualties.

Historical Record

From the apocryphal Worcester Manuscript by Sir Thomas Malory:

Hold, yon Sir Knight, for I am still working on this.
