102 Arita Castle (1517) Phase 2
Arita Castle 1517
Phase 2 Matauchi River
Takeda Motoshige, learning of the fate of Motonao, marched to the Matauchi River and found Motonari and his allies on the opposite bank. Although outnumbered, Motonari decided to attack and sent half his men across the river while a small force moved to outank the Takeda position. The Takeda army quickly pushed the soldiers of Mori back to the river.
Motoshige, seeing the Mori army retreating, wishing to make his victory complete, rode forward to the river, but was struck by an arrow and killed. The Tekeda army broke, leaving Motonari the victor and paving the way for the rise of the Mori clan.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
