Scotland set a new national record for Commonwealth Games gold medals after Alex Marshall and Paul Foster won the lawn bowls men's pairs.
The victory means that Scotland have 12 golds, surpassing the tally from Melbourne in 2006.
The hosts are just one medal away from matching their best haul of 33.
Northern Ireland won their second medal of the Games by winning silver in the men's triples bowls final. They lost 19-10 to South Africa.
Team skip, Neil Booth, will retire from his international career in triples after taking the silver medal.
In squash, England's Laura Massaro lost out to Malaysia's Nicol David in the women's singles and had to settle for silver. David made it back-to-back Commonwealth gold medals as she produced a superb performance to win 12-10 11-2 11-5.
In the men's event it was an all-England final with Nick Matthew coming out on top as he beat James Willstrop to take the gold.
It was the first day of the decathlon and in the men's 100m Australia's Jake Stein had two false starts, meaning he is disqualified from the event. Although there are ten events in the decathlon it is unlikely that he will be able to come back and win the gold after this setback.
England's Caroline Povey secured the bronze in the Trap women shooting event. She beat Natalie Rooney, from New Zealand, in a shoot-off after the match ended in a tie.
