Miller Pata and Linline Matauatu were in complete control at Coolangatta Beach, winning in straight sets 21-14 21-10.

After playing together on the Beach Volleyball World Tour, in the Pacific Games and at World Championships, Linline Matauatu said they didn't feel any added pressure with a medal on the line.

"We've been around the world for a long time," she said.

"We missed the Olympics so for Commonwealth Games we do a lot of training to get any medal we get."

Coach Shannon Zunker said the duo executed the game-plan perfectly.
