It was heartbreak for Omar Hayward and Steve Wilson, but a joyful moment for Yushae DeSilva Andrade on Day Two of the Boccia event going on in the Parapan Games in Lima Peru.

In the third game DeSilva Andrade picked up a 1 – 0 win and then closed out the match winning the final game 2 – 0.

Game two Hayward would pick up a 1 – 0 win to take the lead 2 – 1, but in Game Three Moraes picked up a 2 – 0 win to take a 3 – 2 lead into the final round, thayt he would win 1 – 0 to claim the victory 4 - 2.
Unfortunately for Wilson he found himself up against Duban Cely from Columbia who is ranked in the top ten in the World, going down 9 – 1. Wilson was not his sharp self and Cely took full advantage of that hitting jack after jack.
Wilson won the first round 1-0, but from there Cely would win 4-0, 4-0, 1-0 to claim the win.
