The Knights of St John hold the rearguard, the frankish foot and bowmen hold the flank, and the Richard Lionheart attacked Saladins with a sally of his knights, Sal al Ed Dins forces were routed.

or did you mean Tiberias or Teresias where Baldouin th Lepper King a boy forced Saladins forces in a flight he could not even organice a retreat.

Another example were Romans who got defeated by mounted archers(Crassus vs Parthians)
and crassus got memoriced as a general who plundered, the Parthians didnīt broke the legions with their archers or their cataphracts, the fool offered battle without water on a place only a fool would offer a battle.
