Norwood vs South Adelaide
Semi Final 2 - Coopers Stadium - 10/05/19

South Adelaide 2.1 4.2 4.2 5.4 34
Norwood 0.2 1.2 3.3 3.3 21


Goals: Charlton 2, Kirk, Copley, Page
Best: Campbell, Gore, Copley, Tahau, Wright, Charlton
Injuries: Nill

South Adelaide's senior women have booked a place in the 2019 SANFL StateWide Super Women's League Grand Final after an impressive start against Norwood on a frosty Friday night at the Parade. 

The Panthers 5.4 (34) to 3.3 (21) victory was built on the back of a strong opening term and hard-fought final quarter.

The side was without leading goal scorer Madison Bennett but were able to find plenty of options up forward, kicking four goals to Norwood's one in the first half.

However, the girls had to withstand a third quarter fight back by Norwood to which the Panthers fought back hard to counter, earning themselves a spot in the Grand Final.

In a game between the top two best performers from the home and away season, it was the Panthers who started the better side.

The first goal of the game came in just the first minute of play following a clever toe poke by Teah Charlton (eight disposals and six tackles). She then followed up five minutes later with a strong over head mark to give the Panthers their second goal in just the first six minutes of the match.

Nicole Campbell was influential in the midfield all game, gathering a total of six tackles, fifteen disposals, three clearances and a team high four marks.

Also impressive in the centre of the ground was Nikki Gore who totalled fifteen disposals, eight tackles and five clearances.

South Adelaide continued to push in the second quarter, helped by the run and carry out wide by Hannah Munyard (thirteen disposals and two marks).

Tamara Page kicked truly from 30m out to give South their third while a strong overhead mark by Jess Kirk put the lead up to four goals with thirteen minutes gone in the second quarter.

With only two minutes left, Matilda Zander managed to kick Norwood's first of the game, giving South a 4.2 (26) to 1.2 (8) lead at the main break.

 

With a Grand Final spot up for grabs, the game broke into a tight battle in the third quarter, with the two sides combining for 120 tackles for the game.

Norwood threatened to take the lead with repeated inside 50s, but the Panthers backline held firm despite the immense pressure.

Sarah Wright worked extremely hard with fourteen disposals, three tackles and four rebound 50s to help disrupt several of Norwood's plays.

Meanwhile, Czenya Cavouras continued to apply her signature pressure with a game high eight tackles.

However, back to back goals by Norwood's Kate Fenton cut the lead to just five points heading into the final break.

South Adelaide continued to fight hard in the fourth quarter with contributions and key moments coming from all around the ground.

Montana McKinnon continued her impressive year in the ruck with thirteen hit outs and allowed South to get the first look at the ball with the side winning 20 clearances to Norwood's 18.

Meanwhile, young gun Indy Tahau continually crashed the packs and showed her explosive pace to provide South with four inside 50s.

With the game on the line and only ten minutes left to play, Tiffany Copley stepped up to kick her first ever SANFLW goal and the only goal for the quarter.

Despite the Panthers leading by thirteen points there was still work to be done to insure Souths place in the Grand Final.

Cheyenne Hammond (eight disposals and three rebound 50s) used her tremendous speed to stop an almost certain goal.

Meanwhile Elke Jarvis (five disposals) and Sam Pratt (five tackles) made several strong tackles and defensive plays to counter Norwood's efforts.

The girls managed to fight it out to the end against quality opposition, with the siren sounding to give the Panthers a 5.4 (34) to 3.3 (21) win and a ticket to the 2019 SANFLW Grand Final.

South Adelaide will now enjoy a two-week break and will face the winner of Norwood v North in the 2019 SANFL StateWide Super Women's League Grand Final on Sunday, May 26 at ACH Group Stadium (Glenelg).

Vale Len Atkins OAM

Posted by South Adelaide Football Club on 8 May 2019
Vale Len Atkins OAM

The South Adelaide Football Club is saddened to learn of the recent passing of former player and coach Len Atkins OAM.

In his earlier years, Len played for Semaphore Centrals (1953-55) and in 1955 was selected in the State SAAFL side that played Victoria at Alberton Oval on June 13th.

In that game, he ran off the bench just after halftime and kicked a goal within a minute.

In 1956 he played for South Australia in the AAFC Carnival in Hobart and kicked goals in every game.

Eventually he was recruited to South Adelaide and played 30 games for the Panthers between 1957-59, kicking 23 goals.

In the 1960-61, Len moved to the Northern Territory and took on the role of captain/coach of Waratahs Football Club in NTFL competition. In this time, he was also top goalkicker with the club (20).

During this time, Len made one of his most significant contributions to South Adelaide in recommending a young athletic ruckman from the Tiwi Islands named David Kantilla to the club.

Post playing career, Len accepted the role of coaching South Adelaide's second eighteen, leading them to a Preliminary Final in each of his years at the helm (1967-68), while also serving as an assistant coach to Peter Darley in 1968.

In 1969 he left South Adelaide to coach McLaren Vale in the Southern Football League.

Len also enjoyed a successful squash career.

He was named a five-time National Age Squash Champion - Under 45 (1980/81/82) and Under 50 (1984/86) - and became a Life Member of the SA Squash Association, Squash Australia.

The thoughts of South Adelaide are with Len's family, friends, teammates and all that remember him fondly on and off the football field.

Jarrad Wright extends contract with South Adelaide

Jarrad Wright extends contract with South Adelaide

South Adelaide is pleased to reveal senior coach Jarrad Wright has put pen to paper on a contract extension that will keep him at the club through the end of 2020.

Since taking on the role of senior coach at the end of 2017, Wright has guided the Panthers to 14 wins, nine losses and two draws and importantly led his side back into the Finals in his first season at the helm.

South currently sit inside the top five in search of their first consecutive Finals appearances since the 1991-92 seasons.

Wright's coaching acumen has also been recognized externally, with his inclusion to the coaching panel that will direct the SANFL's State Team against the WAFL this Sunday in Perth.

South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer, Neill Sharpe said the Club was confident of the direction it was heading under Wright's leadership.

"We are very pleased to have Jarrad extend his stay in Noarlunga for a further season," said Sharpe.

"His influence on our football program in his short time with the Club is evident and we believe our playing group is in great hands with Jarrad as our senior coach.

"We look forward to the rest of 2019 and 2020 with Jarrad at the helm and hopefully a period of sustained success that the South Adelaide Football Club deserves."

Wright declared he was excited for what lies ahead for the Panthers current playing group.

"I am very thankful for the opportunity to coach at South Adelaide and excited for what the future holds for the remainder of this year and then moving into 2020," said Wright.

"We have a developing list which will provide us the solid foundation for continued success moving into the future.

"However, the challenge and focus always remains on winning games and finals.

"I believe we are on the right path to achieve this."

Prior to being appointed as senior coach at South Adelaide, Wright underwent an extensive coaching apprenticeship that included stints as an assistant coach at both Woodville-West Torrens and South Adelaide, guiding the Eagles Reserves to back-to-back premierships and taking control of his own program at Henley Sharks and leading them to a premiership in the SAAFL.

Also a talented player, Wright was drafted by the Brisbane Lions with pick 35 of the 2001 AFL National Draft, after leading South Australia's Under-18s, and spent two years on their list through their premiership successes of the early 2000s under the tutelage of the great Leigh Matthews.

Wright's playing career also included over 100 Senior State League games with South Adelaide, Woodville-West Torrens (SANFL) and the Brisbane Lions (QAFL) and an Under-17s premiership with the Eagles.
