“I was very proud of the team, not only for the win, but in the manner in which we won,” said coach Julie McCoy. “In the past, the US Team tended to lead early in games, only to let the lead go under pressure. This time, in both the semi and the final, the team allowed our opponents to score first, then rallied with 12, then 26 unanswered points for the win. That is a good sign, demonstrating the team’s maturity early in our international 7s season.”
