BETTA Team Selection: SANFLW Round 11 vs West Adelaide

South Adelaide face West Adelaide for a spot in the major round. 

After accounting for the Double Blues in convincing fashion last week, the Panther Women face West Adelaide is a huge clash at Flinders University Stadium. 

The Panthers have their destiny in their own hands, with a win locking in their fourth consecutive finals appearance, while West Adelaide are also playing for their season.

The scenario is this, the Panthers win and they play finals, if West win it would depend on how much by and it would also depend on the result between North Adelaide and Sturt.

A North win would mean it would come down to percentage between the Panthers and Roosters, should West Adelaide win.

While an upset win from Sturt would also be in the Panthers favour. 

Moving on from the what if, the Panthers name one confirmed change with Hannah Munyard being ruled out with a arm injury, while Tahlia Meyer, who played against the Eagles in round 7, comes in for her second game since the end of the St.Kilda season.

Last time the Panthers faced West Adelaide was in round 6 at Adelaide Oval, where the Bloods had their first win over South Adelaide since the Panthers joined in 2018. 

The huge game kicks off from midday on Saturday afternoon at Flinders University Stadium.

South Adelaide vs Eagles
Round 6 - Maughan Thiem Kia Oval - 8/05/21

South Adelaide 5.3 7.4 12.5 15.9 99
Woodville-West Torrens 2.3 8.6 11.10 13.13 91

Goals: Tarca 4, Gibbs, Schwarz 2, Fitt, Horne, O'Neill, Roberts, Rose, Skinner, Wilkinson
Best: O'Neill, Gibbs, Kappler, Broadbent, Tarca, Cailotto

Plenty of grit and determination was on display during South Adelaide's eight-point win over the reigning premiers at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval on Saturday.

The hotly contested match came down to the wire, but it was the Panthers who managed to break the deadlock during the final term before valiantly defending their lead to claim a hard-fought win, 15.9 (99) to 13.13 (91).

The last time the Panthers defeated the Eagles at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval was during Round 18, 2018. On that day, Victor Harbor product Nathan Krueger kicked three goals to help South get up by a goal. Fast forward to 2021, and it was the Encounter Bay product Jake Tarca who stepped up with four straight goals.

After suffering their first loss of the season the previous week, the Panthers had to face off against the Eagles at Eagles, with the small oval dimensions making it one of the hardest travels in the SANFL.

Yet South Adelaide started out as the livelier one of the two sides, but after several attempts the Panthers could only muster behinds. This was until Bryce Gibbs collected the ball from a throw-in and, with an outside of the boot snap, managed to kick the first of the day.

The home side replied with two quick goals, but the Panthers were able to respond after Mitch O'Neill managed to intercept an Eagles pass at half forward, before kicking truly from beyond the arc.

This was the lift the side needed, as the corresponding clearance saw South clear and hit up Liam Fitt, who celebrated his return from injury with a goal.

Turning back the clock once again was Joel Cross, who caught Stengle holding the ball before hitting up Jason Horne whose beautiful kick soared through for a goal to increase the Panthers lead to double digits.

In the dying stages of the opening term, the Panthers managed to rebound out of defence with blistering pace, and Eamon Wilkinson's dribbling pass across goal to Tarca, allowed him to quickly snap his first of many for the day.

Holding a 5.3 (33) to 2.3 (15) lead at the first break, the Panthers weren't able to build the buffer any further as former Central District pair, Troy Menzel and Dan Menzel, combined for five goals during the second term.

The Panthers found some relief from Matt Rose, whose captain contribution gave the side a much-needed goal midway through the term but the Eagles continued to threaten to break the game open.

A half-volley pass allowed Menzel to go back and drill a goal during the dying stages of the half, which handed the Panthers a 7.4 (46) to 8.6 (54) deficit at halftime.

Yet the side showed plenty of grit and strength after halftime as they begun to grind down the reigning premiers and it all started with a thumping goal from Gibbs.

From here, it was a shootout between the two sides, with Skinner adding his first of the day, but not before the Poole was able to reply for the Eagles.

The Panthers desperately needed a goal to help break the deadlock, and they found their answer in the form of the 17-year-old debutant from Langhorne Creek, Matty Roberts. His quick-thinking snap while being amongst a pack of opponents was a momentum swinger, as Tarca followed up minutes later to hand the Panthers back-to-back goals for the first time since the first term.

While they were potent on the offensive end, the Panthers backline continued to flex their muscle, with Matthew Broadbent along with the 100 gamer Ben Haren, helping to stop the Eagles from replying with a late goal.

After some valiant defending, the 31-minute quarter came to an end handing the Panthers a 12.5 (77) to 11.10 (76) lead at the final break.

A harsh free during the final term allowed the Eagles to take the lead. The Panthers were able to stay composed and not panic, and it paid off as Nic Schwarz kicked a thumping goal to retake the lead for the blue and white.

Showing their endurance, South Adelaide continued to put forward pressure on the Eagles. Then, after juggling the ball, Wilkinson was able to slap it onto his boot for a much-needed goal to give South some breathing space.

Minutes later, Schwarz squandered a shot at goal, but was able to regain possession only seconds later and this time he quickly kicked truly to increase the lead to 15 points.

With fourteen minutes left to play, the Panthers managed to hold the Eagles to just one goal allowing the blue and white to hold on and claim an impressive 15.9 (99) to 13.13 (91) win.

In a game with many contributors, it was hard to pick any standouts, yet O'Neill certainly made himself known with 22 touches and 8 tackles, while Gibbs finished with 21 disposals, 11 tackles and two goals. Broadbent also showed what the Panthers missed last week, as he collected a game-high 28 touches and 7 marks.

The Panthers will enjoy a well-earned weekend off before returning home for the game of the season so far. As South Adelaide will clash with Glenelg on Sunday, 23 May, from 2:10pm.

Daily Grind Women's Match Report

South Adelaide vs Sturt
Round 10 - Prospect Oval - 8/05/2021

South Adelaide 2.3 5.6 7.6 9.6 60
Sturt 1.0 1.0 1.0 2.1 13

Goals: Hickey 3, Hooper, Campbell 2, Flanagan-Sjoberg, Kirk
Best: Campbell, McKinnon, Whiteley, Hickey, Smith, Kirk

A strong four-quarter display results in South Adelaide's biggest win of the season as they defeat Sturt by 47 points at Prospect Oval on Saturday.

It was a game of firsts for the Panthers, with the side playing at Prospect Oval for the first time and celebrating Jaslynne Smith's half century making her the first Panther to reach the milestone.

And they celebrated this milestone in style, with the Panthers averaging at least two goals a quarter while on their way to an impressive, 9.6 (60) to 2.1 (13) win.

With finals on the line, the Panthers pushed for the opening goal but within the first two opening minutes but could only muster two behinds.

Yet this forward pressure eventually paid off, with the side forcing a turnover which allowed Sophia Flanagan-Sjoberg to go back and, mirroring her efforts from last week, drill a difficult shot from the boundary.

From the next centre bounce, the Double Blues were able to clear and record their first inside 50 of the match; but nothing came of this as Tiffany Copley took a strong overhead mark to intercept.

From her interception, the Panthers were able to rebound and eventually, they managed to hit up the Jordann Hickey, who continued to embrace her new colours with her first major of the day.

The Double Blues pushed for their first of the day midway through the term, but Gypsy Schirmer's pace was able to ease some of the pressure as she burst through the centre of the ground with a run and carry.

Eventually the heroics of the backline came to an end, as Alex Ballard was able to kick the Double Blues first of the match after eleven minutes of play.

With just thirty seconds left till halftime, the Double Blues rebounded out of defence and managed to go end to end, but Renee Moon was able to corral her opponent till the siren sounded to hand the Panthers a promising 2.3 (15) to 1.0 (6) lead at the first break.

Within the first minute of the second term, Teah Charlton was able to clear the ball and hit up Jorja Hooper, who went back and drilled her first of the day.

From here, the Panthers really begun to take control of the match.

Hickey kicked truly with her second goal of the game. Then, after an intercept mark at half forward by Lisa Whiteley, Hooper was able to follow suit with her second goal of the quarter.

The Hooper-Hickey duo helped the Panthers to a 5.6 (36) to 1.0 (6) lead at halftime, and while there was still a half left to play there were plenty of positives for the Panthers.

For one, they were winning the inside 50s count 14 to 6, which also meant the side had scored 78 per cent of the time they went forward. Likewise, the last time the Panthers met the Double Blues, the side only scored 25 for the match meaning their halftime was already better.

Coming out after the main break, it was Nicole Campbell who got things going for the Panthers as she kicked truly while on the run.

Continuing her streak of strong second-half performances, Tahlita Buethke continued to provide ball-movement around the stoppages and Sturt must've been aware of this as a late hit on Buethke allowed South with a down the ground free, which Hickey made them pay for with a great goal.

As the great weather begun to subside and clouds took its place the Panthers, who held a seven-goal lead at the final chance, came home during the final term with wind at their backs.

And it was Campbell who made the most of this, as she kicked a thumping goal to help the side reply to Sturt's goal which was the Double Blues first goal in 49 minutes of play.

After going 49 minutes without having a goal kicked against them, the Panthers backline didn't let this goal ruin their strong efforts, with Smith showing what 50 games of experience looks like with several interceptions.

At the offensive end, Jess Kirk was able to read the ball beautifully and take a diving mark, which she finished perfectly with a strong goal that stretched the final margin to 9.6 (60) to 2.1 (13).

The match was arguably the Panthers best of the season, as the side had even contributors across the board. Yet special mentions must go to Cheyenne Hammond, who finished with 16 touches and 4 tackles, and Montana McKinnon who wracked up 31 hit-outs.

South Adelaide will look to keep this winning form when they face off against West Adelaide for the final minor season game. Which will take place at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, 15 May, from 12:00pm.

MRS Property Reserves Match Report

South Adelaide vs Eagles
Round 6 - Maughan Thiem Kia Oval - 8/05/21

South Adelaide 3.1 5.3 5.5 7.5 47
Woodville-West Torrens 2.1 5.4 8.7 12.9 81

Goals: Nobes 3, Bogle 2, Freitag, McKinnon
Best: Bogle, Turner, Sawford, McCreery, Elsworthy, Douglass

It was a tale of two halves, and it was a costly second half that saw South Adelaide Reserves suffer a 34-point loss against the Eagles at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval on Saturday.

Four weeks is a long time in football; and the Panthers proved that to an extent. Facing off against the Eagles at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval for the second time in a month, the Panthers looked a drastically different side.

After a fast start the Panthers entered the main break trailing by just one point. This was a far cry from their Round Three clash against the Eagles which saw that halftime deficit sit at 50 points.

However, the Panthers weren't able to keep the pressure up as the home side wrestled the game away from South Adelaide before kicking away to win, 7.5 (47) to 12.9 (81).

Fraser Turner made his presence felt after returning to the Reserves, with the Tassie product collecting 34 disposals and 11 marks. Also impressive was Ben Sawford, who finished with 31 disposals and 10 clearances.

Coming into the game off the back of their first win this season, the Panthers looked lively early as Daniel Nobes, Jesse McKinnon and Damon Freitag combined for three goals within the opening thirteen minutes.

Nobes would continue to be dangerous, with the Christies Beach product booting two more majors during the second term which was the Panthers only goals for the second term.

With just a point separating the bottom-placed Panthers from the second placed Eagles, it looked as if it was an upset in the making. But this wasn't to be, as the home side kicked three unanswered goals during the third term.

The Panthers wouldn't respond until the final term when Luke Bogle kicked two goals in just three minutes, but from here it was all the Eagles.

After such a promising start, the Eagles managed to kick seven goals during the second half to the Panthers two.

South Adelaide Reserves will look to bounce back after the bye, when they face off against Glenelg at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday, 23 May, from 11:30am.

South Adelaide vs West Adelaide
Round 6 - Flinders University Stadium - 8/05/2021

South Adelaide 2.1 4.1 7.4 8.5 53
West Adelaide 2.2 6.4 7.4 8.6 54

Goals: Hoeck 2, Birt, Cockshell, Delean, Draper, Hicks, Rogers
Best: Verrall, Mitton, Draper, Hayes, Birt, Brown

An evenly matched contest at Flinders University Stadium sees South Adelaide Under-18s fall agonisingly short of West Adelaide by one point on Saturday.

The Panthers were able to match it with the second-placed Bloods throughout the day, with Westies twenty-one-point lead midway through the second term being the biggest lead of the day.

As suspected, the evenly matched contest came down to the wire but unfortunately, it wasn't in the Panthers favour as they fell to the smallest of margins, 8.5 (53) to 8.6 (54).

With just sixty seconds left on the clock and with the scores tied, West Adelaide managed to get the ball deep within their forward line but the Panthers were able to desperately clear without conceding a score.

This was only momentarily, as the Bloods intercepted and, with just twenty seconds left, were able to score a behind to take the lead.

With time well against the Panthers, they pushed for one last game-winning goal and to their credit they managed to get the ball to within their forward half but this is as far as they got as the siren sounded.

In any close game, it is easy to dissect the final few minutes to see how it was lost. But footy is played over four quarters, and there were many small moments throughout the day that ultimately saw the Panthers fall just one point shy. 

As for positives, the Panthers were able to fightback and even the scores at three quarter time after facing a halftime deficit of fifteen points.

Finishing with 27 disposals and a goal, Isaac Birt was also one of the standouts for the Panthers, as was Arlo Draper who finished with 27 touches and 9 clearances. 

Hugo Hoeck also made his presence felt on the scoreboard as he added two goals to his tally.

South Adelaide Under-18s will now have a weekend off to recover and reflect, then they will look to bounce back when they face off against Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday, 22 May, from 11:30am.

BETTA Teams Selection: Round 6 @ Eagles

The Panthers name another debutant while a key defender notches up 100 SANFL games.

Coming off an extremely disappointing performance against the Redlegs last Friday night, the Panthers will make a number of changes to the side that will face the Eagles.

Key defender and former Magpie, Ben Haren will notch up his 100th SANFL game, having played 14 for Port Adelaide in 2013-2014 before coming across to the Panthers in 2015. 

In 2012 Haren was rookied listed by the Sydney Swans, however injury would keep him sidelined meaning he would see no AFL action. 

Haren credited former Panthers coach Brad Gotch and CEO Neill Sharpe as the key reasons he decided to move to Flinders University Stadium, along with key connections with captain Matt Rose and Nic Schwarz.

Announced to the playing group last night, Panther Junior and Langhorne Creek product Matt Roberts would be making his League debut against the Eagles on Saturday.

Roberts joins fellow 17-year old Jason Horne as the only two under agers in the league team.

Roberts had another solid performance at Under-18 level on Saturday where he took out the Under-18 SANFL MVP thanks to game high 34 disposals, 3 goals and 9 tackles.

Joining Roberts coming into the league squad is son of a gun Jaidan KapplerJesse McKinnon and the man mountain Daniel Nobes

Meanwhile for the Reserves, they will be looking to keep up the momentum having taken the points over star studded Norwood reserves outfit on Friday night. 

Once again the reserves will name a relatively settled line up going into this week's game against the Eagles. 

The action kicks off from 11:30am Saturday morning with the Reserves followed by the League at 2:10pm.

BETTA Team Selection: SANFLW Round 10 vs Sturt

South Adelaide look to take another step to locking in finals with a significant milestone. 

The Panther women accounted for the ladder leading Redlegs last week in one of the better performances in 2021. 

With the addition of AFL talent, the Panthers will once again be looking to stay on the winners list as the race for the top 4 heats up. 

The Panthers would need to win against the Double Blues, Norwood to beat Centrals and North to beat West to lock in finals with a game to go. 

This would see the Panthers go 3 points clear of Centrals and West, who the Panthers face next week. 

Two weeks ago, the first two players in SANFLW history North's Leah Tynan and Norwood's Leah Cutting registering their 50th league match. 

The Panthers very own Jaslynne Smith will be the first Panther to join the SANFLW 50 club, with the ever reliable defender set to make her 50th start. 

Smith played 4 games for West Adelaide in 2017 before making the move to the Panthers when the league expanded to six teams in 2018. 

The quiet achiever notes the 2018 and 2019 Premierships as two highlights of her career to date.

Meanwhile, Jorja HooperLucy Northcott and Caitlin Ross all come into the squad of 24 that will face Sturt. 

The action kicks off from 10:30am on Saturday morning at Prospect Oval.

South Adelaide @ Norwood
Round 9 - Coopers Stadium - 1/05/2021

South Adelaide 0.1 2.2 3.2 4.3 27
Norwood 0.4 0.4 1.7 2.9 21

Goals: Buchanan, Charlton, Flanagan-Sjoberg, Hickey
Best: Charlton, Whiteley, Buethke, Hickey, Campbell, Smith

South Adelaide keeps their finals dream alive with a one goal win over the ladder leading Redlegs at Coopers Stadium on Saturday.

Needing to win to stay in finals contention, the Panthers managed to end Norwood's seven game winning streak with a hard-fought 4.3 (27) to 2.9 (21) victory.

Returning to the Panthers from AFLW duties, Teah Charlton led the way for the blue and white with 29 disposals and 6 clearances. Meanwhile, Panther debutant Jordann Hickey celebrated her first game with 9 touches and a goal.

With plenty on the line, the reinforced Panthers outfit struggled to get much momentum during the opening term as the ball spent majority of the quarter in Norwood's forward half. In total, the ball stayed inside the Redleg's forward half for the opening six minutes, but they would only amass four behinds for the term.

The Panthers, who had limited looks up forward, managed to strike with a behind of their ownand as they came storming into their forward 50 looking for the first goal of the match, they were beaten by the siren.

Trailing by three points at the first change, the second term was Panthers turn to attackand after several close calls, Charlton was able to shrug a would-be tackler and kick truly on the run for the first major of the match.

Just two minutes later, the Panthers were able to force another turnover up forward, and this time Sophia Flanagan-Sjoberg was able to collect it and goal from deep in the pocket.

With the first two majors of the match coming in style, the Panthers entered the main break with a promising 2.2 (14) to 0.4 (4) lead. 

Despite holding the lead, the Panthers were trailing the inside 50 count, 13 to 15. But Jaslynne Smith, Lisa Whiteley and Gypsy Schirmer helped minimise the damage throughout the day as the three combined for 11 rebound 50s. 

South Adelaide continued where they had left off during the third term, with Nicole Campbell hitting up Hickeywhose strong mark allowed her to go back and drill her first goal in the blue and white.

Norwood would not respond with their first goal of the day until the eleventh minute mark of the third term, but despite being their first goal after 45 minutes of play, it cut the lead to just eight points.

Taking a 3.2 (20) to 1.7 (13) lead into the final break, the Panthers still had some work to do in order to shut out the top placed Redlegs.

After a tense opening few minutes, the Panthers managed to chip the ball through Norwood's numbers and they finished the play perfectly by hitting up Lauren Buchannan who was dead in front of goal.

Buchannan's goal, much like hers during Round Seven, proved to be the game-winner; but that didn't stop Norwood from threatening to fight back.

Norwood responded with a goal of their own just three minutes later, cutting the Panthers' lead back to seven points.

The home side then continued to pepper the goals, and just as they seemed to have kicked the goal to bring the scores levelSmith dived across just in time to touch the ball, inches from the line.

After some relentless defending, the Panthers were able to finally rebound the ball out of danger and score a much needed behind with just a minute left to play.

The following sixty seconds were extremely tense, but with Norwood breaking the anti-density rule it allowed the Panthers to regain possession which they held long enough to safely see out the 4.3 (27) to 2.9 (21) win.

Mirroring the 2019 season when the Panthers brought Norwood's eight game winning streak to an end, this win saw the Panthers bring to an end their seven-game unbeaten streak.

South Adelaide will now look to continue this winning form when they face off against Sturt at Prospect Oval on Saturday, 8 May, from 10:30am.

Round 5 - Coopers Stadium - 30/04/21

South Adelaide 1.5 4.7 7.10 7.11 53
Norwood 1.4 2.7 3.9 5.12 42

Goals: Nobes 4, McCreery, Megins, Whitbread,
Best: Sawford, Douglass, Juckers, Kappler, Coleman, Nobes

South Adelaide Reserves claim their first win of 2021 after defeating Norwood by eleven points at Coopers Stadium on Friday night.

The Panthers faced off against the Redlegs for the second time in five weeks, except this time the side came out with a much different result.

Playing under the lights of Coopers Stadium, the Panthers built a strong lead midway through the match and they never looked back, winning 7.11 (53) to 5.12 (42).

Ben Sawford was impressive for the Panthers, finishing with 25 touches and 11 clearances, while cult-figure Daniel Nobes made his presence felt with four goals.

Coming into the match on the back of four losses, things looked worrying for the visitors as Norwood opened the scoring early into the first term.

It wouldn't be until midway through quarter that the Panthers were able to respond, after a clever ruck tap by Bailey Griffiths allowed South with a decent look inside 50 which was ultimately capitalised on by Nobes.

While the Panthers seemed strong on the offense end, they remained steadfast in defence with Aaron Douglass collecting 7 marks and 6 rebound 50s.

Leading by just a point at the first change, the Panthers begun to build momentum during the second term something that they have lacked during the previous clashes this season.

And with the tall tandem of Ollie Megins and Griffiths in the middle, the Panthers wracked up the hit-outs, 56 to 31.

Jake McCreery opened the scoring for Panthers during the second, while two more goals from Nobes handed the Panthers a promising 4.7 (31) to 2.7 (19) lead at halftime.

Norwood threatened to score early into the third term, yet the Panthers defence were able to rebound and turn it into a goal at the other end courtesy of Sam Whitbread.

Minutes later the Panthers' forward pressure forced a turnover which gave Nobes another look up-forwardand he made them pay with his fourth of the night.

Norwood once again came at the Panthers, but an intercept by Zac Dumesny allowed the Panthers to prevent a late Leggies fightback.

In the dying minutes, Megins plucked the ball out of the air and went back to drill his first ever goal for the Panthers, a goal which would also prove to be crucial at the end of the match.

Leading 7.10 (52) to 5.12 (42), the Panthers were on track to claim their first win of the 2021 season but still had to hold off the fast-finishing Redlegs who kicked two unanswered goals during the final term.

With just elven points separating the two sides, the ball spent several minutes deep in Norwood's forward line but the Panthers were able to claim a hard-fought win, 7.11 (53) to 5.12 (42).

The South Adelaide Reserves will now face the Eagles for the second time in a month, with the Panthers travelling to Maughan Thiem Kia Oval on Saturday, May 8, from 11:30am.
