England produced a stunning comeback to claim Commonwealth bronze in the Para-sport T6/T7/T8 open triples after defeating Scotland 16-12 after an extra end at Kelvingrove

After a nip and tuck opening to the match, Scotland led 12-8 and were holding two-shot mid-way through the 14th end.

But England recovered to take the match to a deciding end and when Paul Brown sent the jack long, Scotland were unable to respond as their final bowl landed in the ditch.

The trio of Bob Love, David Fisher and Brown claim England's third bowling medal while Scotland's team of Billy Allan, Michael Simpson and Kevin Wallace will be left to wonder what if after leading for much of the contest.

After defeats to New Zealand and South Africa respectively in the semi-final, Scotland and England renewed their rivalry in lawn bowls at Kelvingrove with a bronze medal on the line.

After exchanges two shots each on the opening two ends, Scotland took a grip of the match, gaining three shots in three successive ends as England struggled to deal with the conditions amid a brief downpour.

England did reignite their challenge with a two on end six but were soon 7-5 behind as the hosts slipped back into their stride with Simpson's drawing proving crucial.

Though England did come within one, Wallace found the perfect length in the ninth end to re-establish their two-shot lead.

Despite halving the deficit, Scotland pulled out their lead to four with four ends remaining as Wallace pushed some shot England deliveries.

Brown did produce the perfect draw to keep England in contention at the next end but the lead was four again with skipper Wallace landing shot right on the jack.

Scotland could smell bronze with two ends left as they lied two-shot, but Brown produced the perfect draw to reduce the lead ahead of the 15th and final end.

A final end looked in the offing as England put themselves second shot, and despite Wallace delivering the ideal take-out, Brown thrust his trio back into the contest with the perfectly weighted bowl to set up a deciding end.

The 16th end saw Love landed right on the jack before Simpson produced the take-out to leave his team holding shot with four bowls to come. However, Brown played a superbly weighted delivery to send the jack long and helped secure the bronze by four shots in a thrilling climax.
