Hojo Ujiyasu (15,000?) vs. Satomi Yoshihiro (10,000)

Satomi Yoshihiro at first did well in this battle, capturing Konodai and forcing the Hojo to retreat. Ujiyasu, however, ordered his men to attack Konodai again, and caught the Satomi by surprise. Many Satomi were killed and Yoshihiro was forced to flee. Following this battle, the Satomi were greatly weakened, though they continued to resist the Hojo for over a decade.
