The First Spinner Cluster along with the Fifth Provisional Garrison Cluster attempted to counter. led by saKhan Kyle Vordermark the Widowmakers engaged the Wolves on the outskirts of the fortress. The conventional forces of the Fifth pushed the Wolves’ initial attacks back, to the surprise of Vordermark. As the Wolves started to retreat, a Star from the Eleventh ignored orders and broke through Spiderholm’s first gate is a suicidal assault. Seeing his own defenses cave in so easily, Vordermark retreated inside Spiderholm leaving the Fifth to face destruction, and the First to flee.
