Gold medals for Scotland’s Scott McCowan and Stephen McGuire ensured their country topped the medal table when the two-day United Kingdom Boccia Championships came to a close in Antrim, Northern Ireland.
In the BC3 category, two-times Paralympian McCowan had finished second in his pool which meant he was pitted against younger brother Jamie in the semi-finals.
In a tight match, Scott won 4-3 and set up a meeting with England's Matt Berry, who had recently ssecured the silver medal at the Boccia England Cup in Sheffield in May.
However, even though Berry forced a tiebreak, it was the more experienced Scott McCowan who claimed gold.
It was Scotland against England again in both medal matches in the BC4 category.
Scotland’s McGuire beat England’s Louis Saunders 7-2 in the gold medal match, maintaining his 100 per cent record in these Championships.
The battle for bronze also went Scotland’s way, with Ross Munro beating Evie Edwards 6-3.
However, the standings were reversed in the BC1 category with reigning world and Paralympic champion David Smith in commanding form, winning his semi-final 11-0 against fellow Englishman Dan Bentley, a score which he repeated in the final against Scotland’s Reegan Stevenson.
In the all-England bronze medal match, it was Daniel Wain who came out on top, beating Dan Bentley 6-4.
However, Northern Ireland’s Claire Taggart got the biggest cheer from the home crowd when she beat England’s James Clowes 4-0 in the BC2 gold medal match.
The home crowd had also hoped Scott Cromie could bag a medal in the bronze medal match, but it was not to be as England’s Reshad Saraj triumphed 3-2.
Boccia UK performance director Helen Nicholls said: ”We have seen some outstanding boccia played and I’ve been really impressed with the performances and the attitudes of the players.
"Playing against world-ranked players has been a great experience for the pathway players and they have shown they are pushing hard to improve.
"With little more than a year to go to Tokyo, being tested on home soil is great for the World Class Programme athletes, too.
“The Championships were played in a great spirit so a huge thank you to the volunteers and Disability Sport Northern Ireland for all their hard work in making it such a success.”
