Once ahead, Warriors began to play some of their best football of the season. Man of the Match Dev Nair, who demonstrated the benefits of the team centre forward running into the danger zone time and time again, finally got the goal his supreme efforts deserved, to give Warriors a 2-0 interval lead.

The second half saw several changes; Charley Turley creating lots of problems for the CS defence and late on Charles Joy was denied by the woodwork. Despite the quality of the opposition the Sidmouth boys closed out the game 2-0 winners.
