Raffa bowlers Stefan Farrugia and David Farrugia claimed their first medal in the 2017 San Marino GSSE when they placed second in the doubles competition.

The Maltese duo enjoyed a perfect start to the tournament when recording identical back-to-back 12-5 wins over Montenegro and Liechtenstein.

However, their hopes of going on to win the overall winners were jolted by San Marino as the tournament hosts coasted to a 12-5 victory.

Stefan Farrugia and David Farrugia quickly recovered their poised as they whitewashed Luxembourg 12-0 to finish second in the five-team competition.

San Marino took golds with a perfect record while Liechtenstein settled for bronze.
