The Australian pair of Lynsey Armitage and Karen Murphy have defeated the defiant Scottish team of Joyce Lindores and Kay Moran, to claim the Women's Pairs gold medal in Lawn Bowls.

The two sets were won by Australia 11-7 and 13-3, with the home team winning more ends.

Lindores spoke of their loss to Australia saying "We worked so hard up to here. When you go four shots down on a nine-end two-bowl game, it's hard to make it up. (At one stage) I thought I did well with a shot, but the Australian skip came and played an excellent bowl."

In a tense bronze medal play-off New Zealand's Khan sisters, Jan and Marina, overcame Suzanne Dingle and Gaynor Thomas of Jersey, 2-1.
