Scotland conceded tries to Regan Ware, Joe Ravouvou and Trael Joass before fighting back to trail 17-14.
Tone Ng Shiu made the result with a try near the hooter.
Sione Molia bagged a double in the 36-14 romp against Wales before it was Ware’s turn to secure a brace in their 21-14 defeat of the dangerous US side.
