The USA is into the Cup semfinals after their 20-0 victory over Tunisia. The Eagles are done for the day and will resume play tomorrow inside Hong Kong Stadium.

The Eagles made a lot of changes to the starting lineup that faced Spain. Cristina Mastrangelo replaced Amy Daniels at prop, Irene Gardner came in for Katie Dowty at scrumhalf, Beth Black took over the flyhalf position for Kimber Rozier and Vix Folayan started at wing for Vanesha McGee.

Gardner got the scoring started with an unconverted before hooker Deven Owsiany scored the first of her two tries. Jane Paar came on in the second half to end the game at 20-0.

The Eagles will likely face Australia in tomorrow's semifinal. It will be a huge test for the USA, considering Australia defeated the Eagles 22-5 in Dubai for third.
