The USA's medal chase is over in the Women's Olympic Rugby event in Tokyo.
The Eagles lost 21-12 to Great Britain, staking GB to a 21-0 lead thanks to two tries from Jasmine Joyce and another from captain Abbie Brown—Holly Atchison converted all three.
The USA Women ended pool play 3-0 after coming back to beat Australia 14-12 in a game where they didn't look at all like they would be able to win that game.
The USA is 2-0 in the Women’s Olympic Rugby event, and once again they spent a large proportion of the game on defense.
