The final quarter saw the Sidmouth girls find a higher tempo. Turley made the initial break and followed up with some great ripping of the ball from Exeter to put some spirit back in the side. Following her example was Daisy Grove who started fighting for the ball at the ruck and Amy Scott, Annabelle Bird, Ellie Wood and Jess Perry started pulling down opponents.

Immy Bagwell, Martha Goodall, Esme Bagwell and Lucy Tanner supported and ran well with the ball offloading in the tackle.
