In the second half, West Exe put pressure on goalie Oran Bramble, but a determined Adey made it 3-0. West Exe scored from a throw in and got a second. Time was running out, but defender Thomas Burhop sent a flying ball from midfield over the goalie head and in.Westexe made their third goal in the dying seconds, ending the game a 4-3 victory to Sidmouth U11 Raiders.
