They'll have these moments to remember; USA Women upset New Zealand 19-12 and move into the Cup final to play either Canada or Australia for the gold medal in the Sydney Sevens.

The prolific scoring duo of Captain Kelter and Tapper added three more tries to their tournament tally, which, at one point mounted a 19-0 lead by the Eagles. Kelter's second try came from a crafty pass from Carlyle.

The defense again was superb, keeping the Black Ferns, Dubai tournament winners - ranked highest in this season's standings - to two tries late in the second half.

From an opening loss to Russia, the USA have demonstrated they can play against any opponent, extending their win streak to four games.

So, it's one more match to play for the gold medal. This team has done the USA proud.
