The scenario involved roughly equal forces of brigade strength. The Bavarians allies of the French needed to take a village. The Russians need to stop them.
The following captions and descriptions of the game are my interpretation of what I saw and heard. All errors are my memory and a strong drive to stitch a story together.

The Bavarian plan was to avoid the artillery in the centre. Hold off the Russian cavalry and storm the village with all the infantry. It did not go well. The Russian cossacks managed to charge the Bavarian light horse in the flank and kept charging until they were run off the board. The Russians could then focus on the attack on the village and defeated the Bavarian assault.
