Scottsdale clawed their way back from a three-quarter-time deficit to claim a 2.5 (17) to 2.3 (15) victory over Bridgenorth.
Unable to be separated at the quarter and half-time intervals in the low-scoring affair, the Parrots kicked two majors to the Eagles' one to go into the final break a goal to the good.
But last year's grand finalists were not to be counted out of the contest, restricting Bridgenorth to a solitary point in the last as they added 1.3 to their tally and took home the win.
Rebecca Irwin and Danielle Walters found the big sticks for the Magpies as Alex Hall, Keeley Lester and Walters led the way while Charley Freeman-Finn kicked a major for the third consecutive week, this time being joined by Courtney Sharman.
