Archant

Exe II 2, Isca III 2

A classic derby played at a high tempo with end to end play ended with last minute drama.

The early exchanges were even-steven, but Exe began to take a foothold in the game and went ahead thanks to a powerful strike by Karen Tinley.

Isca equalised shortly before half time.

The second half saw end to end play before Isca enjoyed a period of pressure that led to them edging ahead with just eight minutes to play.

The clock was ticking down inside the final minute when, with virtually the last touch of the game and with 8mins to go scored, despite the efforts of player-of-the-match Sian Williams. With all but last touch of the game Jem Brooker swept home to ensure even game on the pitch was reflected in the score line.
