The action in the fort was filled with hand-to-hand combat. British regulars and highlanders were able to scale the formidable walls, but they met with fierce resistance once inside. The highlanders' grenadier company lost 50% of its strength in the bitter fighting. Despite staggering casualties, at game's end it seemed that the British had the edge.

The deciding factor in the game came down to who could eliminate more of their opponent's forces. The British held a very slight edge in this department and that was the difference in the game. The King's soldiers eked out a victory by the slimmest of margins.
