Default Can guards do more than blades?

Watching "The Princess Knight" episode of Elena of Avalor, they find out Elena's mom had her wrist broken in a fencing bout by having the bell guard of the sword (not sure if foil or epee) smashed against it.

I figure this is Pummeling but can pulling with a sword at range C possibly do more damage than impaling at range 1? Both do thrust based damage.

IRL I can see how I could apply more force with a bell guard than the sword tip but maybe that is because it is a sport sword and not a real stabbing one. Not sure how much less damage they do.
