Ireland topped 200 as they chalked up their first win of the T20 tri-series with a 46-run victory over Scotland in the Netherlands.
Gary Wilson's men lost twice to hosts Netherlands last week but picked up their maiden two points after posting 205-5 and then limiting Scotland to 159-5 in reply.
Scotland were roughly up with the rate at 82-1 in the ninth over but when George Munsey (41 off 24) swept George Dockrell (2-15) to square leg, their charged faded, with Kyle Coetzer's men only able to muster five boundaries in the final 10 overs.
Andrew Balbirnie (74 off 40) and Paul Stirling (51 off 29) smashed 21 fours between them - Stirling smashing three in a row off spinner Mark Watt in the first over - as Ireland scored over 200 for the fourth time in Twenty20 internationals.
Skipper Wilson also struck 58 from 38 balls as Scotland seamer Alasdair Evans was taken for 51 runs from his four overs.
Scotland will get a chance at revenge when they face Ireland again at the same venue on Sunday, before heading off to Amstelveen for two fixtures against Holland next week.
