GOLD COAST, Australia -- Harry Jones scored two tries as Canada advanced to the Bowl final at the Gold Coast Sevens with a 19-14 win over Scotland on Sunday.

John Moonlight had Canada's other try in the semifinal, while Connor Braid chipped in with two converts.

Canada next faces France in the final after also defeating Spain 29-5 earlier in the day.

Moonlight's try came one minute into the match, but Braid missed the ensuing convert.

Scotland replied with a try from Joe Nayacavou and a convert to take a 7-5 lead, but Jones and Braid hooked up to give Canada a 12-7 lead at halftime.

Scotland again went ahead with a try, this time from Andrew Turnbull, and a convert to open the second half.

But Jones and Braid once again scored and Canada's defence did the rest of the work to move into the final.
