Peru win Sudamérica C Women’s Sevens Title

Peru are the women’s Rugby Sevens champions of the South American C division. Las Tumis  backed-up from day one by remaining undefeated, thereby defeating all other countries. Those involved were Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicarágua, Panama, Peru and the host nation of El Salvador.

Played on Friday and Saturday, the Rugby Sevens event was played around the senior men’s South American C Championship which was won by Guatemala. The disappointment of Costa Rica was replicated in the women’s Sevens event as Las Guarias fell to Peru in the Cup Final.

Prior to facing Peru Las Guarias had achieved three solid victories. They started the day with  a 36-7 win over Panama and subsequently defeated El Salvador 22-5 and Guatemala 27-0. Finishing below Costa Roca in third was Panama who defeated El Salvador 12-10 in the Bronze (Plate) Final.

The Peruvians 12-5 win over Costa Rica followed up from a 26-0 win over El Salvador and earlier victories of 53-0 vs Nicarágua and 36-0 against Panama. It saw Los Tumis claiming not only the title but also a place in the 2016 South American Women’s Rugby Sevens tournament in Rio de Janeiro. The event will take place on March 6-7 as a test ahead of the Olympic Games.
