High­land tug sees new champ

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

The cham­pi­onship round of the 12th an­nual High­land Reg­i­ments Tug-of-War at the Glen­garry High­land Games was a re­peat of the year pre­vi­ous, featuring the Cameron High­landers (of Ot­tawa) and the Toronto Scot­tish.

And just like in 2017, the Toronto Scot­tish took the first of three pulls, with Cameron pre­vail­ing in round two to tie.

In the third pull, Scot­tish tri­umphed to up­set the Camerons, the six­time de­fend­ing cham­pion.

The event this year fea­tured six teams, with the Camerons and Scot­tish tied atop the round-robin stand­ings.

In the con­so­la­tion fi­nal, the Brockville Ri­fles won on two straight pulls, to take third place over­all.

The High­landers Tug-of-War Chal­lenge Cup was de­signed specif­i­cally for units of the Cana­dian Armed Forces Pri­mary Re­serve.
