Immediately following their victory, Shepherd and Ford huddled. They knew what had to be done; reorganize quickly, then push forward and pinch left to make a flank assault on the German position that had 2nd Platoon pinned. The Platoon received no outside support or reinforcements; the only addition beyond normal was that all the Wpns Plt men servicing the .30 cal. MMG were out of action, so it was given to a couple riflemen in 2nd Squad's rifle team (2A) to man. Sgt Reyes was again angered by this; this meant he would essentially cease being a squad leader and simply be a weapons team leader.
2nd Plt is off table and is represented by one card that fires as a MMG each turn, occupying the attention of the German forces in the building, who must continue to concentrate fire at 2nd Plt.
Shepherd led his group forward and fired on 1AG, getting a kill and 3 shock. When 1AG failed its activation roll, the three survivors promptly surrendered (0 FM pts). The 50mm mortar crew heard the commotion, turned, and fired their rifles at the Lt/3A, to no effect. 1FG, on the top floor, did the same, getting only 1 shock, while the German HMG and 2nd Plt exchanged fire. The German Platoon Commander, on the 2nd floor, fired his pistol at 3A, to no effect. Ford led 2B in a sprint across the field towards the mortars, which continued to fire on 2nd Plt.
1st Platoon once again carried the day, with minimal casualties, though two squad leaders were hit. The company consolidated on this position, and set about reorganizing itself in preparation to begin moving east on the long march to Messina.
