The United States lost to Australia 34-0 in Cup Semi-finals at the Sao Paolo 7s. Australia dominated the game from the onset and never allowed the Eagles a chance to get into the game.

The Eagles dropped the opening kickoff forward, ominous foreshadowing for the rest of the match. The teams traded possession for the first four minutes until Amy Turner barged over for the first try of the match. The Aussies added a score a minute later and Shannon Parry dotted down right before halftime for a 17-0 lead.

Australia opened the scoring moments into the second half after turning over the Eagles at a ruck. Charlotte Caslick took the ball quickly away from the breakdown into space to extend the lead to 24-0.

Australia continued to probe in Eagle territory but a turnover momentarily prevented the Aussies from hitting the try zone once again. Australia did, however, strip the Eagles and Turner sprinted in for her second of the match. Australia added one more try to seal the match.

The Eagles will play for 3rd place at 4:16 PM EST.
