A century stand between Ryan Hunter and Aaron Doyle inspired Ireland U17s to an impressive eight-wicket win chasing 150 against Scotland in the first T20 of the day at Upritchard Park. Hunter top-scored with an unbeaten 69 from 55 balls (6 fours, 2 sixes), while Doyle muscled 4 sixes and 3 fours in a hard-hit 52 in just 34 balls. The Irish were able to coast to the win with 15 balls to spare despite two wickets for Logan Briggs. Scottish opener Jamie Dunk impressed with 53 (4 fours, 3 sixes), while Bahadar Esakhiel hit 5 fours and 2 sixes in his unbeaten 44 as 53 runs came in the last four overs to propel them to 149 for 6. Carson McCullough took 3 for 17, while Merrion’s Daniel Forkin (2-24) was again in the wickets, as Jeremy Bray and Andre Botha’s squad took a 2-0 series lead.

Upritchard Park, Bangor, 16 August.
 Scotland 159/7 (20 overs; U Ahmad 56, J Dunk 41; L Thomson 3-39)
 Ireland 153/7 (20 overs; R Hunter 43, G Roulston 29, A Doyle 22; L Briggs 2-25, J Hobman 2-27)
The Ireland U17 Squad
Revenge for the Scots who defended 159 to claim a 6 run victory in the second T20 of the day. Jamie Dunk in the runs again for Scotland as he added 74 with Uzair Ahmad for the second wicket. Luke Thomson the most successful of the Irish bowlers claiming three wickets while there was one each for Carson McCullough, Eoin Birch and Daniel Forkin. The Irish reply got off to a solid start, Ryan Hunter and Gavin Roulston added 48 and when Roulston fell Aaron Doyle and Hunter took the score to 91 in the twelfth over, ahead of the Scots at the same point. A flurry of wickets knocked the Irish back and only some late hitting from Eoin Birch (16*) and Luke Thomson (15) took the home side to within one hit of a second win on the day but it was not to be.
Ireland beat Scotland by 109 runs (DLS)
Upritchard Park, Bangor, 15 August.
 Ireland 252/6 (47 overs; G Roulston 92*, R Hunter 37, A McGeehan 29, H Dyer 29, E Birch 19*; A Hegde 3-28)
 Scotland 150 (35 overs; J Dunk 31, R McIntyre 20; C McCullough 3-19, D Forkin 3-28)
Gavin Roulston scored 92 not out for Ireland (Johnny Parker)
A big win for Ireland who were asked to bat first by the Scots. Gavin Roulston likely denied a century by the overs reduction due to a rain interruption. Slow Left Armer Daniel Forkin's three wickets stifled the Scottish reply and Carson McCullough's introduction late in the game produced another three. More action from the two sides at the same venue tomorrow when there are two T20s scheduled, the first starting at 10.30.
