The High School All Americans U17s team were defeated Saturday by Wales U16s 45-16 at the Wellington International Festival.

The two teams traded penalty kicks early, but a yellow card to an HSAA player opened up an opportunity for Wales, and they entered halftime up 21-6.

Early in the second half Wales scored three quick tries to go up 45-9 with 12 minutes to go. But the Americans did clamp down their defense after that, and finished with a try.

USA play Belgium U17s on Monday, and England South U16s on April 5.
