Eagles score seven tries in shutout defeat of China at Atlanta 7s

ATLANTA, Ga. – Victoria Folayan led the Women’s Eagles Sevens with three first-half tries in a 41-0 defeat of China in the final Pool A match at Atlanta 7s Saturday.

It took 90 seconds for the pacey winger to get started. Folayan took a couple of steps and was too fast for the China defense, opening the scoring with a try. Less than two minutes later she did it again, this time faking a run to the inside to burn her opposite number on the wing. Folayan ran almost the entire length of the pitch and Christy Ringgenberg converted for a 12-0 Eagles lead after four minutes.

Amelia Villines, in her first start of Atlanta 7s, jumped a slow China pass in attacking territory and nearly extended the lead before the ball was recovered. Jessica Javelet picked up the ball during the next possession and weaved her way under the sticks to bring the score to 19-0 after Ringgenberg’s conversion.

After the first-half whistle had gone, Kelly Griffin picked up the ball from the ruck and gave it to Folayan, who completed her hat trick with her third try of the half. The Eagles went into the break with a 24-0 lead.

In the 10th minute, Villines again saw an opportunity to jump the play and picked off a pass to run into the try zone untouched for the try. Ringgenberg kicked her third conversion for a 31-0 lead, a score line of which the Eagles have been on the opposite end during Atlanta 7s.

Javelet combined with Rebekah Siebach and Villines a minute later in a great team play, with Villines laying out to keep the ball alive and feeding Javelet for the Eagles’ sixth try. After the final whistle, Siebach was rewarded for her stout defensive play and the assist on the previous try with a try of her own, bringing the final score to 41-0.

The Eagles finish third in Pool A and will face Canada in the Cup Quarterfinal at 12:00 P.M. ET Sunday. Watch all of Atlanta 7s’ second day live on Universal Sports and be sure to follow @USARugby on Twitter for live match updates.
