Bryan finishes 16th

SWIMMING: Ireland's Chris Bryan finished 16th overall at the LEN European Open Water Championships in Berlin, Germany.

Swimmers racing in the 10km completed four 2.5km circuits at the 'Regattastrecke Grünau' with Bryan positioned well throughout among the 39 contenders.

The Clareman came through the first circuit in 23rd place, just 19 seconds behind the leader, Hungarian Gergely Gyurta.

Gyurta led again for the next circuit with Bryan moving up to 16th at the halfway mark. At the 9km mark a group of 19 swimmers, which included Bryan, broke away.

It was Dutchman Ferry Weertman who won out in the end completing the 10km in 1 hour 49 minutes and 56 seconds, Bryan was just 17 seconds behind in 1:50.13.

Victory for Irish U17s

CRICKET: Ireland's U17s secured a last-gasp win against Scotland to clinch the European Challenge Series at Eglinton with just a ball to spare.

Chasing a total of 138 for 7, Ireland were in a dominant position at 106 for 1 after 14 overs thanks to fine innings by Sonny Cott (55), Lorcan Tucker (26), and William McClintock (20).

However, leg-spinner Harris Aslam (3-19) induced panic in the Irish middle order, reducing them to 116 for 5 with just two overs remaining.

Jack Tector and Adam Dennison hit sixes in the penultimate over to reduce the equation to seven from the final over. Dennison and Tector proved equal to the task as they found the gaps to seal the win with a ball to spare.
