SAINT-NOM-LA-BRETECHE, France -- Continental Europe put an end to a 13-year drought by defeating Britain and Ireland 15-13 in the Seve Trophy on Sunday.

Francesco Molinari beat Chris Wood 3 and 2 in the last singles match to give Continental Europe the winning point.

Continental Europe won the trophy in the inaugural contest in 2000 before losing the next six meetings.

Both teams were tied 9-9 at the end of play Saturday and were still level 12-12 after the first six singles matches on Sunday.
