Canada opens World Rugby Sevens Series with 38-7 win over Brazil at home field
Canada's women's rugby sevens team opened its weekend action Saturday with a 38-7 win over Brazil on home field at Westhills Stadium.
Charity Williams of Toronto scored two tries, while captain Ghislaine Landry of Toronto, Kayla Moleschi of Williams Lake, B.C., Emma Chown of Aurora, Ont., and Karen Paquin of Quebec City each scored tries.
Canada came into this weekend's action as the hottest team in the World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, winning the series stop in Japan last month and looking to earn a berth in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Canada led 12-7 at the half but dominated Brazil in the second half with four unanswered tries.
