On one end of the list, Sir Elysk de Ford, an average knight faces the lady knight and he has his lance in hand, prepared for the joust. The blunted lance is lifted in a salute to his opponent before he lowers it and tucks it against himself so that he can aim better. As soon as the go is given by the marshal, he spurs his horse on, lance aimed towards Letha.

Letha lifts her chin in respectful acknowledgement of Sir Elysk, but as her own face guard is coming down, the plain faced woman's lips lift in a wolfish snarl, the evidence of her ferocity as she spurs her own mount forward. The lists echo with the thunder of hooves as Letha lifts to the tilt, the sound of Ian calling out in encouragement a thin sound in her ears as she focuses the blunted end of her lance at her foe.

And the end strikes true as the two meet dead center. Elysk finds himself the recipient of a blunted lance to his shoulder, just over his shield. He tries to hold on, he does, but to no avail. He feels the lance pushing him off and backwards from the horse, tumbling to the ground in a painful heap. He makes his way to his feet, wobbles a little, then salutes again to mark he is fine before hobbling off to the side.

The effort of slamming the end of her lance is powered by her sharp, "Ha!" at the second of impact. Letha's conscious of the fact that Elysk has taken a fall, and once she's at the end of the railing, turns her horse around to affirm that he is well. Lifting her helm, she gves him a nod, dismounts, and offers him a salute of respect before offering her bow to the crowd. The Spearmaiden of Stapleford is victorious.
