Eagles to contest Plate at Atlanta 7s with defeat of England

ATLANTA, Ga. – Jessica Javelet recorded her first hat trick, and the Eagles’ second of Atlanta 7s, in a 19-5 win against England in the Plate Semifinal at Fifth Third Bank Stadium at Kennesaw State University Sunday.

The Eagles hemmed the visitors in their own end for most of the opening frame and opened the scoring in the third minute. Javelet received the ball near the middle of the field after Victoria Folayan and Kelly Griffin worked together to draw defenders on the left wing and raced into the try zone. Griffin kicked the conversion for the 7-0 lead.

Javelet’s second came two minutes later on a similar play, as the former field hockey player pumped her legs to reach the in-goal before anyone else on the pitch. Griffin nailed the tough-angled conversion for the Eagles, who found themselves up 14-0 after five minutes.

The Eagles had a momentary lapse a minute later, giving Amy Wilson-Hardy space at midfield to beat Lauren Doyle, who could not chase down the try-scorer. Emily Scott’s conversion went wide to keep the Eagles ahead, 14-5, at the half.

Javelet completed her hat trick in the ninth minute with a standout individual try, making her opposite number stutter at the Eagles’ 22 before burning her to the try zone to put the Eagles up 19-5.

The Eagles could have scored at least twice more, as substitute Amelia Villines intercepted a pass at midfield but could not beat her defender to the in-goal and Doyle lost the ball forward over the line instead of passing to her winger in the same attacking phase.

England failed to put together another strong attack in the second half and the Eagles celebrated their 19-5 victory at the final whistle, signaling their entry into the Plate Final. The Eagles will play Spain, who defeated Japan 24-0 in the other Plate Final, at 6:12 P.M. ET. The match-up is a rematch of the 2013 IRB Rugby World Cup Sevens Bronze Medal match in Moscow, Russia, last summer.
