A 7-5 British comeback win after the American general Poor led a regiment of regulars in a series of bayonet charges that smashed the British centre. The grenadiers fell beating back Learned's advance but the British light infantry wiped the floor with American Militia. The British Provincial infantry supported by their generals held the centre and right while the Hessians and General Philips' command won the day.

Another play and another 7-5 British win. The initial British bayonet charge took out 3 American centre regiments and it looked an American disaster was in the offing. But a steady stream of shooting casualties brought the result back to 5-5 and the British centre was thinning. The British general played the Steal a March card to put the grenadiers, 2 Provincial and a regular regiment with generals in support in the face of the surviving American left wing regiments and these were crushed in the following turn. Learned's command was largely bogged down att eh rear so support was thin on the ground.
