As night fell on June 13-14, the Argentines of the 7th Infantry Regiment knew that they would be tested again. B Company had fought valiantly on Mount Longdon, but it had not been enough. Now the rest of the regiment held Wireless Ridge with a company from 3rd Infantry Regiment in support. In addition to the infantry, two platoons of dismounted troopers from 10th Reconnaissance Squadron were positioned along Moody Brook where they had been calling in fire on Mount Longdon.

2nd Para, the victors of Goose Green, were tasked with taking the Ridge. They used overwhelming firepower to push the quickly disheartening men of the 7th Regiment backwards. However, when D Company approached their second objective of the night, Blueberry Pie, the dismounted troopers from 10th Recon counterattacked. The recon troops were supported by their mortar platoon, while the British paratroopers had a troop of the Blues and Royals attached. This led to the only, and very brief, battle between opposing armored forces.
