The Germans set up a small two grenadier platoon and 10-1-1 leader and the 75mm ATG on the two hex 40m hill in the northeast. The rest of the force was put in Corntesi. The Russians decided to clear this hill and use the ridge to cover the advance on the town. But they took too much time clearing the defenders who either would not break or immediately rallied. On Turn 7 they broke the hill defense and moved on to the town but a good deal of their infantry was demoralized from German artillery and mortars. This is also the turn the German reinforcement arrived with the grenadiers going to Corntesi and tanks attacking into the Russian on the East edge. This counterattack killed all the SU-85s but at a cost of two steps of panthers. The Russians got their armor right up to the town but had a tough time breaking the Germans as there were two leaders there with 2 morale aid factor. The Russians did get into one hex of the town but this was counterattacked immediately. The game ended in a Decisive German victory.
