Scotland have denied Australia's men's para bowls pairs team Damien Delgado and Port Pirie's Chris Flavel more gold in Birmingham
For Flavel and Delgardo, the Scottish skipper Kevin Wallace's game was a challenge throughout final.
"The opposition skip Kevin is a class act," Flavel told bowls.com.au.
"When we had stuff there he got it. You don't mind getting out-bowled when it's that good.
"The first emotion was a bit disappointed not to get the gold, but you get this around your neck (silver medal) and it's pure joy. Pride and a sense of accomplishment for all the hard work we've put in."
Now fast friends, Flavel said the bonds between he and Delgado would be lasting.
"It's the start of a friendship, we're friends forever now, we're going to be bonded through this," he said.
The duo were in control at 4-2 on Tuesday as they attempted to emulate Ellen Ryan's historic Commonwealth Games gold 24 hours earlier at Leamington Spa's picturesque Victoria Park.
But Scotland produced two, three and two-shot ends in succession to jump ahead 10-4 and eventually win 16-7.
Flavel, a truss designer and a timber estimator, began his bowling career in 1994.
This year he was the overall team/para team champion at the 2022 Trans Tasman and in the past has won on the national stage.
He has had 58 international appearances and 168 caps.
