Scotland wins gold

GLASGOW - Scotland beat England in the Men's Fours Final to win Gold at Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre.

Alex Marshall of Scotland now has four Gold Commonwealth Games medals — winning the pairs at Manchester 2002 and Melbourne 2006, and the same event in Glasgow on Friday.

South Africa's Colleen Piketh and Tracy-Lee Botha won Gold in the Women's Pairs, defeating England's Natalie Melmore and Jamie-Lea Winch 20-17 after an extra end in the Gold medal match.

"We were a little bit nervous and anxious but we knew what we needed to do" says Tracy-Lee. "They started catching up and we had to recompose ourselves."

"It was extremely tense. Once that final bowl happened, the relief you feel, that's when the emotions came out."

Northern Ireland's Barbara Cameron and Mandy Cunningham won Bronze by defeating Jersey 15-14.

In table tennis Singapore claimed the gold medal in the men's doubles for the first time and swept the podium in the women's singles, but England mixed pairs have put a dent in Singapore's ambitions to stake a claim for all the golds available, as they set up an all-England mixed doubles final.

However, the city state's players still have a chance to win six out of seven possible golds, with Singapore qualifying for the men's singles and the women's doubles semi-finals.

Singapore laid claim to all three podium places when FENG Tianwei (SIN) beat YU Mengyu (SIN) 4-1 in the final, after LIN Ye (SIN) had taken Bronze earlier.

It's Singapore's fourth medal sweep since table tennis was admitted to the Commonwealth Games program in Manchester 2002.
