Canada, Moleschi, win Hong Kong sevens

Kayla Moleschi and Canada's Women's Sevens Team will compete in Guangzhou, China, at this weekend's Women's Sevens World Series.

After capturing its second consecutive Hong Kong Invitational Sevens Championship Friday, Canada’s Women’s Sevens Team and Williams Lake’s Kayla Moleschi will now move on to Guangzhou, China, for this weekend’s Women’s Sevens World Series stop.

Team Canada electrified a near-sold-out Hong Kong Stadium Friday by defeating France, 24-0, to capture the title.

The women’s sevens team opened with a 19-5 win over Hong Kong Thursday, before continuing its dominance with a 33-0 shutout win over Kazakhstan later in the evening, with Moleschi scoring a try in the winning effort.

In game three Canada blanked Japan, 38-0, before moving on to capture its third shutout of the tournament the following day against France.

Team captain Jen Kish scored first for Canada under the posts after taking an offload from Moleschi.
