LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- Heavyweights New Zealand and Fiji will meet in the semifinals of the USA Sevens rugby tournament after southern hemisphere teams dominated Saturday's second day of the three-day event.

New Zealand beat Canada 17-0, and Fiji edged the host United States 21-19.

Sunday's other semifinal will be between South Africa, which breezed past Wales 26-0, and Samoa, which defeated Scotland 12-5.

England and Kenya, finalists in the previous round of the competition in New Zealand, were relegated to the second-tier Bowl competition after poor results in Friday's pool play.
