GLASGOW -- Canadas mens rugby sevens team arrived in Glasgow with its hopes pinned on a medal. Brady Skjei Jersey . But the Canadians proved no match for a Scottish team that had the heart of the host country -- and the some-45,000 delirious screaming fans at Ibrox Stadium -- behind it. Canada dropped a 21-5 decision to Scotland on Saturday at the Commonwealth Games in a dramatic battle it needed to win to be in the mix for the medals. "It always is a factor if its your home team, isnt it?" coach Kieran Crowley said. "You always see that the home team in a tournament like this does massively well. "Massive disappointment. We came here with the objective to get a medal. Now we have to recover, obviously be very disappointed, but come morning, weve got to focus on finishing ninth now." Connor Braid scored the lone try for Canada, which had lost 39-0 to defending champion New Zealand in its opener then bounced back to run roughshod over Barbados 68-5, setting up the must-win game against the Scots. "Proud of all the guys," said an emotional John Moonlight, Canadas captain. "No matter what happens, that last game I think we put it out there. The score didnt go our way. A lot of things didnt go our way. "I guess we have to wait four years for another chance. It hurts. You dont forget stuff like this and (Sunday) were going to come out with three wins, 100 per cent." Canada, which can finish no better than ninth, will play Trinidad and Tobago in the bowl quarter-final Sunday. Lee Jones, Richie Vernon and Mark Bennett scored for Scotland in front of a raucous crowd at Ibrox Stadium -- normally home to Rangers F.C. New Zealand had already clinched top spot in Pool A -- arguably the toughest pool in the tournament with three of the worlds core teams in Canada, the Scots and themselves -- with their victory over Canada and a 17-14 win over Scotland. The Canadians knew they were in for a stiff test against the Scots in the rowdy jam-packed Ibrox Stadium. The noise was deafening when the two teams walked onto the pitch to ACDCs "Thunderstruck." They clapped and stomped their feet and broke into spontaneous chants of "Scot-land!" They booed when a call went Canadas way. "Its tough but its cool, its something you can thrive off of for sure," Braid said of the crowd. "We beat them at home in Glasgow in May, and that was a really good feeling so we were just hunting for that the whole way through. "It came down to a couple missed tackles, but the boys really put it out there against a really strong Scottish team." Canada and Scotland are familiar foes, the Canadians edging the Scots in the semifinals of the IRB World Sevens World Series stop in Glasgow earlier this season. Canada went on to make history by reaching the final for the first time, only to be trounced 54-7 by New Zealand. Still, the Canadians finished a best-ever sixth on the series, while Scotland was 12th. Trailing 7-0 Saturday, Braid muscled his way across the try line with 1:14 left in the first. But a minute later Vernon scored on a long run down the middle, and Scotland had Canada pinned in its own half for most of the rest of the game. "There was still plenty of time left," Braid said of the halftime score. "Weve come back from bigger deficits before so I dont think we were too worried. But time was just against us. They were pretty good at the breakdown again. Our tackling percentage was a lot better, but still, individual tackles needs to improve." Canada took the field as the sun was setting after an eight-hour break between games -- something the team wasnt pleased about. Crowley said the team "went through the channels to put complaints in about it," to no avail. The Canadians arrived at Ibrox shortly after 7 a.m. to begin warming up for New Zealand and remained there all day, napping on mattresses and playing board games -- Settlers of Catan was the game of choice -- in a huge tent set up behind the stadium. They werent using the long day as an excuse though. "(Scotland) had to play two other games in the same time period that we were resting, so its tit-for-tat really," Braid said. "It was interesting. The boys got a good nap in, and thats just the way it happens. Sometimes you play at 8 (a.m.) and youre up at 5:30 in the morning. Sometimes you play at 9:30 at night with an eight-hour gap. The show must go on." In Canadas win against Barbados, John Moonlight, Mike Scholtz and Ciaran Hearn scored two tries apiece, while Braid, Nathan Hirayama, Harry Jones and Justin Douglas each scored one. Hirayama was good on all six conversions and Braid booted three. They were no match for the mighty New Zealand All-Blacks in their opener. The bigger and faster All-Blacks thoroughly dominated the Canadians, swatting away their tackle attempts like they were brushing away pesky flies. "Our own defence and penalties let us down," Braid said after the loss. "We had systems in place but we fell apart when it came time." Rugby sevens will make its Olympic debut in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, and if Saturdays action was any indication, the sport will be a massive hit. More than 185,000 sevens tickets have been sold, including a sellout on Sunday. The game, featuring seven players aside and two seven-minute halves, is played at a breakneck pace, keeping fans captivated. Saturday at Ibrox, they cheered almost as lustily for teams such as Barbados and Uganda as they did for their own Scots. After Barbados 59-0 rout by New Zealand, the crowd gave the losing team a standing ovation. They cheered on Uganda when that country scored three tries in the final two minutes to beat Sri Lanka. The Uganda players ran towards the crowd with delight after the game. New Zealand meanwhile, is gunning for its fifth gold medal in rugby sevens, having won the title all four times the sport has been in the Games. The All-Blacks will play Kenya -- second in Pool B -- in the quarter-finals. South Africa won Pool B and will face Scotland in the quarters. Pool C winner Samoa faces England, and Australia, winners of Pool D, meet Wales.

The 43-year old Dane fought back from a double bogey on the first hole by making six straight birdies from the 11th and then adding another one at the last for a 5-under 67. His 15-under total of 201 put him five shots clear of Luke Donald at the European Tours flagship event at Wentworth. Donald, a two-time former BMW PGA winner, birdied his closing two holes for a 68. Irelands Shane Lowry shared the overnight lead with Bjorn but shot a 73 to sit another shot back in third. Rory McIlroy was in a tie for fourth after a 69, seven shots behind Bjorn. Bjorn is competing in the event for the 17th time, but publicly disagreed with changes to the famed Surrey course in 2010 and skipped the event the following year. He returned in in 2012 to finish 37th and then further down the board in 40th place last year. "Im starting to warm to this place," Bjorrn said. Paul Carey Jersey. "But after the double at the first it was just a question of trying to hang in and trying to get the best out of it and just see if you can roll in a few putts here and there. That happened, and probably a bit in excess on the back nine." A win would earn Bjorn one of the biggest prize cheques of his career US$1.059 million, and would also cement his place in Septembers European Ryder Cup team and a first appearance in 12 years since being a member of the victorious 2002 team. The start of play was delayed by three hours because of a rain-soaked course that saw a lot of players struggle early. McIlroy also had a double bogey on the first hole, before recovering with five birdies the rest of the way. And the double major winner hasnt given up hope of catching Bjorn. "Ive had big leads and let them slip, and come from behind and won, so theres a lot of ways to win," McIlroy said. "There is still 18 holes of golf to go, but Im going to need something very special."
