I'm not sure if you are comparing the right value.
The "Net victory point award" is the value from VP awards and penalties of both sides, i.e. in this scenario, the VP penalty from calling reinforcements.
Instead, the result of the games shall be determined by Victory level, which
"is determined by
summing the Friendly Held Objectives value,
minus the Enemy Held Objectives value, plus
the Enemy Loss Penalty, minus the Friendly
Loss Penalty, plus the Net Victory Point
-- Game manual, pp.102
Nevertheless, my net victory point award is -2.
Seems that I've won this.
You're absolutely right. Thanks for posting.
