The Exeter side responded well and opened their own scoring, but back came Sidmouth with two similar tap-and-go tries to take a 15-5 lead.
However, once again the Saracens response was good and two more tries for them saw the sides into the break all square at 15-all.
Sidmouth began the second half well and quickly regained the lead with a brace of early tries.
