On a steamy hot day at the MacCready field, The Tuscarora captured the second girls Indian event of the 2015 season:  Iroquois Nations Rolas.

The “oldest game known to man (or woman)” is played on a soccer-like pitch, with the players trying to propel three rolas into the opponents base.

The tribes are divided into two groups, younger campers and older, and this made all the difference to the winning tribe.  “Our younger kids were really, really, really good,” exclaimed Tuscarora sachem Cara F.  “We also had good defense, which a lot of the other teams didn’t.  That was our plan from the start– to split evenly between offense and defense.”

Regarding the competition, “no one thing stood out,” according to Seneca assistant Sachem Hayley G., “but everyone was really competitive.”

Following the winners were the Cayuga in second, the Mohawk and Seneca tied for third, with the Onondaga fifth.  The boys campers, who will hold their boat carnival Sunday afternoon, will play roles later this summer.  (See full Indian Games results HERE)
