Canada Edges USA in Men NACRA 7s FInal
Sevens - USA Sevens Men


A long-range try from Sean Duke gave Canada a 26-19 victory to win the NACRA 7s Sunday.

The USA had all sorts of penalty trouble, and fell behind 19-7. But in the second half they scored two tries to tie the game. They looked to be ready to score the winner, as Luke Hume gathered a loose ball off the restart, but it was called back for a knock-on.

Penalties proved too much for the Eagles as they were penalized on their final possession to essentially end the game.

Maka Unufe left the game early when Luke Hume's forehead clashed with his cheekbone. Hume went on to score on the play, but Unufe was clearly badly hurt.

Both the USA and Canada qualify for the 2013 7s World Cup in Moscow in June.
