DeSilva-Andrade & Hayward Conclude in Montreal
The Montreal World Boccia Cup concluded for Para Olympian Yushae DeSilva-Andrade and Omar Hayward.

Hayward bounced back brilliantly upsetting world number 8 Eduardo Sanchez from Mexico 3 - 2. After a heavy defeat in his 1st match, Hayward showed great fight and a much-improved performance. Unfortunately due to a poorer point differential than his opponents, he did not progress to the finals.

DeSilva-Andrade played Yuriko Fujii (world number 10) from Japan. DeSilva-Andrade had a tough start to the match with her opponent going ahead by 6 points, however, she also showed great fight to reduce the deficit but she was unable to close the gap by the end of the match. DeSilva-Andrade narrowly missed out on progressing also due to point difference.

Despite the disappointment of not progressing to the finals, there were plenty of positives to take away including the fact both players won games against highly ranked players.

Hayward and DeSilva-Andrade will next be competing in the Povoa de Varzim World Boccia Cup in Portugal from July 8th - 12th.
