New Zealand are just one victory away from securing America's Cup glory after winning Races Seven and Eight on Sunday to take a 6-1 lead.
Oracle Team USA finally put themselves on the board on Saturday to ensure they trailed by three and ensure the action would go on until at least Monday.
But Emirate's Team New Zealand - who started on a negative point because Oracle were victors in the qualifiers - reasserted their dominance in Bermuda.
Peter Burling, who at 26 would become the youngest helmsman to lift sailing's grandest prize, and his New Zealand team won Race Seven by 12 seconds.
And it was an even more commanding victory in the second of Sunday's races, with New Zealand coming home 30 seconds in front to move onto match point.

Team USA now require a repeat of their 2013 heroics when, led by Ben Ainslie, they overturned an 8-1 deficit against the same opponents.
