CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — Fiji capitalized on mistake after mistake by the United States to win the Cape Town World Rugby Sevens 29-15 on Sunday, sending the Americans to a second straight defeat in a final at the start of the season.

Fiji had already scored four tries to go 22-0 up before the U.S. could respond and the Fijians clinched their first title in South Africa since 2005.
