The Fights

Round 1, Fight 1 Onslaught Armour Geddon

Onslaught had the much faster start but its flipper had no effect.  Armour Geddon's arm got stuck on the arena wall, but it managed to escape.  It could not use its arm and drove very close to the pit and got stuck.  Matilda freed it but Onslaught pushed it fully in.
Winner: Onslaught
-
Round 1, Fight 2 Crusher Beast of Bodmin

The Beast of Bodmin had a faster start but Crusher trapped it and used its crusher, slicing through the Beast of Bodmin's armour.  This happened twice until the Beast of Bodmin attacked the side of Crusher, and broke one of Crusher's tracks.
Winner: Beast of Bodmin
-
Round 1, Fight 3 Vercingetorix Terrorpin

The robots dodged each other at the start, until Vercingetorix got under Terrorpin.   Sgt. Bash helped Terrorpin off.  Terrorpin's weapon was too high to have any effect, and it drove into Matilda's CPZ and was attacked.  Terrorpin then pushed Vercingetorix into Shunt's CPZ, whose axe had no effect.  Terrorpin then pushed Vercingetorix into the pit before driving in itself.
Winner: Terrorpin
-
Round 1, Fight 4 Invertabrat The Witch

There was a fast start to this fight, but the robots just pushed each other around.   Invertabrat tried to use its flipper but with no success.  The Witch was immobilised, but even so the flipper had no effect.
Winner: Invertabrat
-
Round 2, Fight 1 Invertabrat Terrorpin

At the start of this battle Invertabrat could not use its flipper because Terrorpin had no ground clearance.  The robots became stuck together, and had to be separated by the house robots.  Terrorpin raised its shell and escaped after Invertabrat got under it.  Invertabrat then became trapped in Dead Metal's CPZ.  Dead Metal attacked it with its circular saw before reversing into the pit!  The robots drove until the judge's decision.
Winner: Invertabrat
-
Round 2, Fight 2 Onslaught Beast of Bodmin

This fight had a fast start - the robots dodged each other.  Onslaught lifted the Beast of Bodmin twice but could not flip it on either attempt.  The Beast of Bodmin could not use its circular saw, but Onslaught was immobilised after it drove up the Beast of Bodmin's ramp.  The Beast of Bodmin then winked at the audience.
Winner: Beast of Bodmin
-
Round 3 Invertabrat Beast of Bodmin

The robots drove into each other, but could not use their weapons.   Invertabrat lifted the Beast of Bodmin but could not flip it (it tried twice).   The Beast of Bodmin then pushed Invertabrat into Matilda's CPZ.  Invertabrat drove up the Beast of Bodmin before it was attacked by Matilda and Dead Metal.  The Beast of Bodmin then attacked Invertabrat, while Matilda lost one of her tusks!  The house robots attacked Invertabrat again, and it was decided that Invertabrat was immobilised.
Winner: Beast of Bodmin
