South Adelaide's Under-18s have officially been crowned minor premiers after a solid 71-point victory over North Adelaide at Footy Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Under-18s finished the minor round with a solid win against North Adelaide at Footy Park on Saturday.

It was a fantastic opportunity for our lads to get to play at such an iconic footy venue on a first class playing surface.

The day had all four Under-18s games for the round played at the same venue, which was a fantastic initiative by the SANFL.

The game was played at high speeds early in the first quarter and that seemed to help out guys get some good ball movement out of our back half to score.

The second quarter evened up with North lifting their offence and stoppage work.

The guys addressed some areas to fine tune at halftime and came out firing in the third quarter with our guys kicking five goals to one.

The final quarter tested our guys early with North taking some clean ball out of the centre square contests to score.

Our guys showed maturity to correct stoppage work in the quarter and get the game back on our terms for the last half of the final quarter.

Our players have been fantastic all year and deserve to finish on top of the ladder.

But, they are all very committed and footy focused for the pending finals.

For those that would like to come and watch us play, our Qualifying Final against Woodville-West Torrens will be played at 2:10pm this Saturday at Footy Park.

South Adelaide enjoyed a bittersweet win in the final game of the minor round, knocking off Adelaide in a nail-biting four-point finish, but failing to qualify for the Finals.

The Panthers needed a win over an AFL-powered Adelaide side to give themselves a chance at extending their season and put their best foot forward riding a six-goal surge to start the final term to register a 13.8 (86) to 12.10 (82) victory.

However, South entered Round 18 in seventh position on the ladder and needed a pair of other results to fall in their favour to jump to fifth.

Fifth-placed Glenelg played their part, stumbling to cellar dwellers West. However, top-of-the-table Eagles refused to play ball and fell to Central District at home and allowed the Bulldogs to snatch a Finals berth on percentage.

Before the game both sides stood proudly behind a banner to take the White Ribbon oath against domestic violence. South Adelaide has been proudly partnered with White Ribbon since 2013 and in 2017 the White Ribbon logo has had pride of place on the Panthers guernseys.

On the field, fast starts have not been the Panthers forte in 2017. In Round 18 this seemed to again be the case as Adelaide's Ben Davis goalled for the away side within 60 seconds.

However, South steadily worked their way back into the contest and a goal from the elder Davis, Ben's older brother Abe, had the Panthers on the board minutes later.

An impressive finish on the run from Joel Cross and a coolly slotted set shot from Nic Schwarz in his 50th game sent South into the first change with a 10-point lead.

The second quarter belonged to the opposition and both sides headed into the long break tied at 26 apiece. If not for some wayward kicking Adelaide may have pushed out to a handy lead.

After announcing his retirement come the end of the season and without a SANFL Finals position secured and the AFL line up fairly settled there was a chance that the game with the Panthers may be the last time Adelaide legend Scott Thompson represented the Crows on the field.

Come the third quarter, Thompson's 308 games of AFL experience began to shine through.

To open the term Thompson roved a high ball on the 50m line and snapped home a miraculous goal from the boundary line in front of the Jimmy Deane's Grandstand.

Moments later he won a centre clearance that lead to a second Ben Davis goal, before hammering home his own second major from one step outside 50.

In the blink of an eye Adelaide had seized control of the play around stoppage and were making their dominance felt on the scoreboard.

However, the Panthers did not roll over.

Goals to Brede Seccull and Matt Raitt balanced out a pair from Crows Development Player Lachlan Murphy.

Soon after Alex "Regg" Moyle crashed a pack, whirled, twirled and snapped home a memorable first SANFL goal, but a late goal deep into stoppage time to AFL-listed big man Paul Hunter stretched Adelaide's advantage back to 14 at the final change.

Fortunately, the Panthers shot out of the blocks in the final term, kicking six unanswered goals to break open the contest.

To their credit, the Crows fought back with three late goals of their own.

However, it would be too little too late as South held on for a memorable four-point victory.

Triple Knuckey Cup winner Joel Cross made another claim for his fourth Charlie putting on an impressive show against the Crows. It wasn't as statistically as impressive as some of his other performances throughout the year (20 touches and two goals), but each possession was lethally effective in willing his team over the line.

Not to be outdone, Nick Liddle also put another foot forward towards a fourth Best & Fairest gong, racking up a team-high 23 touches and five tackles, while joint 2016 winner Brede Seccull was another game breaker with his three goals from 15 possessions.

The Panthers backline stood up all day, with Jordan Taylor and Joseph Haines marshalling the airways and cutting off numerous forward ventures from the Crows, while at the other end of the ground Abe Davis continued to improve at South's primary forward, kicking two goals and crashing packs all afternoon to take 10 marks.

Betta Teams: Round 18 - South Adelaide vs Adelaide

It's a Do-Or-Die Clash with the Crows

For South Adelaide the equation is simple. Only a win against Adelaide at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday afternoon will give the Panthers a chance at playing finals footy in 2017.

South also need some other Round 18 SANFL Macca's League results to fall their way - Glenelg must lose to West Adelaide and the Eagles must beat the Bulldogs - but it all starts with banking the points in Noarlunga.

The Panthers will make at least three changes to the team that fell to Sturt in Round 17, with Tom Fields pulled from the lineup with a calf complaint and Tarak Redigolo and Alex Cailotto omitted from the side.

Young utility Alex Moyle has been recalled for his second senior game and named in a forward pocket, while Nic Schwarz also returns to the side after being a late scratching against the Double Blues with a thigh injury. The latter will line up for his 50 SANFL Macca's League game.

At the other end of the ground, Jordan Taylor returns to the Panthers backlines, while young defenders Jesse McKinnon (Victor Harbor - GSFL) and Robert Irra (OSB/Lonsdale - SFL) could be in line to make their senior debuts after being named on an extended bench.

McKinnon, the son of West Adelaide premiership player Robbie McKinnon, has played 16 Reserves games in his first year with the seniors after progressing through the Panthers junior programs.

Meanwhile, Irra is the younger brother of former Panther and current Power rookie Emmanuel Irra and has spent the past three games with the Reserves after beginning the year with the Under-18s.

If this doesn't get you excited for Round 18...nothing will!


With no Reserves game on beforehand, the day's curtain raiser will be held between ladder-leading SFL U15 sides Flagstaff Hill and Reynella, with action kicking off from 11:45am.

Earlier in the day the Panthers Under-18s will be in action at Footy Park from 10:30am against North Adelaide in their final match of the minor rounds.

Meanwhile, the Club's top-of-the-table Under-18s will simultaneously be in action at Hickinbotham Oval from 11:25am against the Double Blues.

Round 18 is also Member Appreciation Round, with the Panthers offering some great rewards to their loyal supporters - click here for more information.

South Adelaide's finals hopes hinge on the final round after falling to a 30-point defeat at the hands of an in form Sturt at Peter Motley Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers remain in sixth place on the SANFL Macca's League ladder and just a game behind Glenelg after the Tigers fell to North Adelaide in Round 17.

To clinch a finals berth in the 11th hour, South Adelaide now must defeat Adelaide at Hickinbotham Oval and hope West Adelaide can knock off Glenelg in the final game of the minor round.

Despite trailing at quarter time, the Panthers dominated play in the final three terms, recording a 102-point turnaround to set up a resounding 21.15 (141) to 9.4 (58) win that moves them within one win of fifth-placed Glenelg.

At Peter Motley Oval the Double Blues stamped their authority on the game thanks to a six-goal haul from spearhead Kory Beard and a miserly defence lead by Fraser Evans.

Sturt, who have won 12 of their last 13 games, capitalised on several early Panthers turnovers to register the first three major scores of the afternoon before Jake Veide could pull one back for the visitors.

Dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross held his side together thanks to trademark workrate and endeavor around the contest, racking up 12 first quarter possessions and kicking off the second quarter with a goal in the opening minutes.

However, the hosts came home with a wet sail, kicking four unanswered goals to close the half and headed into the major break with a 37-point advantage.

The Double Blues continued to look dangerous through Beard, as the former Magpie added his third for the afternoon within three minutes.

A brilliant effort from Adam Gulden, intercepting an opposition kick and linking up to slot one from 50 gave the Panthers a lift, but soon after Beard slotted his forth and Jake Sutcliffe added another.

However, the Panthers showed some life late in the third term, kicking three straight goals in the final eight minutes, as big men Codey Ellison and 100-gamer Daniel Bass hit the scoreboard and Cross doubled his tally.

Brede Seccull almost added a fourth in his first game back from a finger injury, but skimmed the woodwork with his set shot after the siren.

Both sides broke even in the final term, kicking 3.3 a piece, with Matt Rose adding a pair for the visitors and Seccull kicking true in the closing stages.

Triple Knuckey Cup winner Joel Cross was remarkable, gathering a game-high 40 possessions (27 of them contested) and adding 11 clearances, seven inside 50s and two goals for good measure.

Adam Gulden (20 possessions, four inside 50s, a goal and three goal assists) also worked hard, shuttle running the width all afternoon and providing his usual classy link up play coming out of defence.

Meanwhile, Matt Rose battled hard all afternoon, gathering 21 touches and slotting a pair of goals in the process.

The home side enjoyed a more even spread of contributors, with Kory Beard's six goals the standout performance.

The Panthers now face a do-or-die clash with Adelaide at Hickinbotham Oval from 2:10pm this Saturday, August 26, with a win giving them the chance to leapfrog into the five.

Best: J. Taylor, Moyle, Millman, Aurrichio, Irra, Tyllis

South Adelaide's Reserves season has unfortunately come to an end after falling to a 24-point defeat at the hands of Sturt at Peter Motley Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The loss sees the Panthers relegated to sixth position, a game-and-a-half back from fifth and with no games remaining to close the gap.

South enjoyed the lead at halftime, but were unable to slow a storming Double Blues outfit that outscored them 2.5 to 8.3 in the second half.

Best for the visitors was Jordan Taylor, who finished the afternoon with 30 touches and 13 marks.

The youthful quartet of Alex Moyle (24 touches and five inside 50s), Ben Millman (15 possessions and 10 marks), Under-18s squad member Robert Irra (18 disposals and five tackles) and Joseph Tyllis (19 touches and a goal) were all key contributors.

Meanwhile, big American ruckman Alex Aurrichio was again an imposing force around the stoppages, getting his hand to 44 hit outs (compared to Sturts 23 as a team) and laying six tackles.
