Betta Teams: SANFL Round 17 - South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
 

South Adelaide name four additions to the squad for Sunday's crucial match against the reigning Premiers. 

Coming off the back of a strong win over the Dogs a fortnight ago, the Panthers will be looking to keep their faint finals chance alive.

Needing to win both remaing games and have some favourable results go their way, South have recalled four players into the extended squad of 25, that will be cut to 21 by the start of Sundays game. 

Mark Noble is named back into the side after being a late withdrawal against Centrals due to a Hamstring complaint. 

Jesse McKinnon, Cam McGree, and Luke Bogle join Noble in the 25-man squad. 

The Panthers last two home matches of the 2019 SANFL Statewide Super League season hold extra significance as club stalwart Brad Crabb announced on Wednesday evening that he will be retiring at the end of the 2019 season.

The boys are back in action at Flinders University Stadium with the reserves kicking off the Sunday Roast at 11:30am followed by the League at 2:10pm.

Brad Crabb calls time on SANFL Career

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 15 August 2019
Brad Crabb calls time on SANFL Career

South Adelaide stalwart Brad Crabb announces that he will hang up the boots at the end of the 2019 SANFL Season. 

On Wednesday evening, 200-gamer Brad Crabb announced to the football club and players that he will be retiring from SANFL football at seasons end. 

Crabb made his way over to South Adelaide in 2003, as a fresh faced youngster from the Kangaroo Island Football League side - Western Districts.

Affectionately known as the 'King of KI', Crabb has played over 200 games for the Panthers since making his debut in Round 20, 2007 against Central District. 

"Crabby has been an outstanding servant for the South Adelaide Football Club." said Panthers CEO, Neill Sharpe.

"He has all the values of a person that you want around a footy club, he is fiercely loyal, a leader and all round great person". 

Sharpe noted that Crabb's journey through the junior ranks has seen him develop as a footballer and leader. 

"As time goes on, it is becoming more and more rare to have a someone play 200 plus league games, and the fact that Brad reached that milestone this year is something he should be proud of" said Sharpe.

"His peers have certainly acknowledged his commitment to the Club by nominating him to be Club Captain from 2015-2017."

In 2016, Crabb was awarded Life Membership thanks to his outstanding service to the football club. 

"Crabby's work and dedication to the South Adelaide Football Club has been nothing short of outstanding" said Senior Coach Jarrad Wright. 

"He has, and continues to be a great leader on and off the field, and his personality is what helps make the place what it is"

"Whatever the stereotypical outline of what a club man is, Crabby fits that mold to the tee"

"He always prepares himself in a professional way, and loves a challenge"

"A few weeks ago, we told him that he would be standing [Charlie] Dixon, Crabby licked his lips and prepared himself to get the job done."

In Round 3 vs Glenelg, Crabb became the 16th player to play 200 games or more for the Panthers.

The South Adelaide Football Club would like to thank Brad for his service to the club and wishes him, Alice and Maggie all the best for the next stage of their life.

South Adelaide @ Central District
Round 16 - X Convenience Oval - 03/08/19

South Adelaide 3.5  8.7  11.9  16.13  109
Central District 1.0  3.0 4.1 4.1 25


Goals: Sladojevic 6, Hamilton 4, Riddle 2, Oliver, Ryan, Kraemer, Birt
Best: Kraemer, Sladojevic, Clifton, Nye, Hamilton, Flett

South Adelaide Under-18s make it five in a row as they record an 84-point win over Centrals on Saturday evening.  

This week we traveled to X Convenience Oval out at Elizabeth, it's a long way and never easy to win there even though Central under 18's have not had a great season.

We played after the League's 5-goal win, which was a good opportunity for our players to see the first part of their game while we prepared to play.

We had two forced changes to our side this week with Beau McCreery missing due to injury, and Sam Hindes who, unfortunately had shoulder surgery this week which will mean he will miss the remainder of the season.

This gave an opportunity for Harry Spacie to come back in from injury and Isaac Birt (Strathalbyn Football Club) who is another debutant from our 2019 Under-16 squad.

Issac is our seventh Under-16 who has played Under-18 football this year which, will be great experience moving forward.

We looked strong from the first bounce this week, it only took three and a half minutes for Daniel Sladojevic to kick his first.

Central then took the ball forward, marked and got a 25m penalty to kick there first a couple of minutes later.

Sladojevic kicked his second, with the boys setting up a couple of set shot opportunities which we didn't convert, before Daniel kicked his third for the game.

We went into quarter time 17-points up and in control.

In the second quarter, we had twice as many inside 50s than Centrals, and were able to capitalise by kicking five goals to two goals.

Although we were 37-points up at the main break, we missed some chances that we should have taken, and it felt like Centrals were still in the game.

Our third quarters have not been the best this season, so the challenge was there for us to extend our lead not let the opposition back in.

We did a good job to grind out the quarter and move to 50-points up at three-quarter time, thanks to Liam Hamilton kicking two and Nick Kraemer one for the quarter.

In the last quarter, we had a goal to reach 100-points and the boys took on the challenge.

Sladojevic kicked the first of the quarter and his sixth for the game.

Hamilton kicked the next and his fourth for the game and we had total control.

We had twice as many disposals for the quarter, and our backline was ruthless in defence not letting Centrals score.

We kicked another 3 goals through Ben Ryan, Mitch Riddle, and first gamer Isaac Birt to go past the 100-point mark

We have some work to do on our goal kicking in the next couple of weeks after kicking 16 goals 13 points.

An 84-point win was a great result, again the team looked close and performed well for most of the day.

Only two games to go and we now sit 3rd on the ladder (only by percentage).

We now have a week off before we play North who are 4th, and a win there would guarantee finals.

MRS Property League Match Report

South Adelaide @ Central District
Round 16 - X Convenience Oval - 03/08/19

South Adelaide 5.1 8.3 9.8 11.13 79
Central District  1.2 1.4 6.5 7.7 49


Goals: Fitt, Overall, Davis, Whittlesea 2, Cross, Milsom, Heaslip
Best: Cross, Liddle, Brown, Karpany, Haines, Davis
Injuries: Noble (Hamstring)
Attendance: 1544

South Adelaide stay in the hunt with a strong five-goal win over Central Districts at X Convenience Oval on Saturday.

An outstanding first-half display by the Panthers helped set up the victory; with the visitors booting eight first-half goals while holding the Bulldogs to just one.

However, an inaccurate third term by the Panthers nearly cost them the match as their lead was halved heading into the final quarter.

Luckily, South Adelaide was able to regroup and come out with a 11.13 (79) to 7.7 (49) win to join the winners list for the first time since round 11.

It was Central District who opened the scoring with a goal at the seventh-minute mark of the first quarter.

Having struggled over the previous month, South Adelaide struck back in a spectacular fashion with eight unanswered goals.

It began with Ben Heaslip (19 disposals, three marks, and five tackles) when he kicked truly at the tenth-minute mark.

Just two minutes later, Sam Overall (12 disposals and three marks) handed the Panthers the lead with his first goal of the game.

The Panthers then cleared the ball out of the centre and handed it straight to Liam Fitt (12 disposals, four marks, and four tackles) whose deadly accuracy gave the Panthers their third goal in as many minutes.

The Panthers went on to continue their dominance in the midfield; finishing with 42 clearances to Central's 30 which helped them gather 48 inside 50s to the Bulldogs 29.

Abe Davis then joined the growing list of goalkickers with his first of the day; he went on to continue his run of strong performances; gathering 24 disposals, six marks and five inside 50s.

Also continuing their run of impressive performances was Joel Cross; who would go on to collect 31 disposals, nine marks, six tackles, and four clearances before the game would end.

Cross also joined the goalkickers late in the first quarter; sending the Panthers into the first break with a 5.1 (31) to 1.2 (8) lead following what was arguably their best and most accurate opening quarter this season.

Also busy around the ground was Ben Haren (19 disposals, three marks, and five tackles) and Hayden Sampson (20 disposals, three marks, and six tackles).

Coming out after the first break, Davis booted his second goal in the second minute of the second quarter to continue the Panthers momentum.

Nick Liddle followed up just four minutes later with his first goal of the match.

Liddle was busy all game; finishing with 27 disposals, four marks, four tackles, and five clearances.

19-year-old Eamon Wilkinson, who spent 2018 injured with an ACL, capped off his remarkable comeback story with 12 disposals, three marks, and three inside 50s on debut.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel Irra celebrated his fiftieth game for South Adelaide with 16 disposals, seven marks, and four tackles.

The game broke down into more of a struggle in the second quarter; with both teams combining to finish with 150 tackles.

Overall's second goal late in the second quarter; sent the Panthers into halftime with an 8.3 (51) to 1.4 (10) lead.

Central District opened the scoring in the second half with their first goal since the seventh-minute mark of the first quarter.

What followed was reminiscent of the infamous third quarter fade out; as the home side booted another four unanswered goals to cut Souths lead to just 15 points.

With Roy Laird's men seemingly ready to mount an outstanding comeback, Fitt was able to steady the side with his second goal of the game at the twenty-fourth-minute mark to send the Panthers into the final break with a 9.8 (62) to 6.5 (41) lead.

Thomas Whittlesea (15 disposals, three marks, and three tackles) would join the goalkickers with his first of the match, just two minutes into the final quarter.

Centrals were able to reply with a goal of their own; however, Whittlesea's second goal all but sealed the 11.13 (79) to 7.7 (49) win.

The win was built on the back of strong and key performances coming from all around the ground.

Joseph Haines finished with 21 disposals, ten marks, five tackles and seven rebound 50s.

Meanwhile, Malcolm Karpany collected 22 disposals, seven tackles and ten clearances.

With South Adelaide's final chances still alive; they now face North Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday, August 18 from 2:10pm.

The South Adelaide Reserves continue their run of success with another come from behind win; this time against Central Districts at X Convenience Oval on Saturday.

In a similar fashion to the win over Glenelg last week, the Panthers booted five goals to the Bulldogs one in the final quarter to set up the narrow 12.7 (79) to 13.6 (84) victory.

The Panthers started the better out of the two sides, however, a costly second quarter saw them trail by four goals at halftime.

The win keeps the South Adelaide Reserves chances of making finals alive; as they currently sit just one win out with two matches left to play.

The first goal of the game came through Luke Bogle who would go on to collect 26 disposals, seven marks, ten tackles, and five clearances by the time the game had ended.

What followed was a first-quarter shoot out between the two sides.

However, three goals by Tarik Illingworth (13 disposals and six marks) which included two goals in two minutes; sent the Panthers into the first break with a 4.2 (26) to 3.1 (19) lead.

Coming out after the first break, Central District kicked three goals in ten minutes before the Panthers could steady through a goal by Jesse McKinnon.

McKinnon would go on to collect 27 disposals, four tackles and nine clearances in an impressive display.

However, the home side managed to kick another three unanswered goals in the last seven minutes of the quarter; giving the Panthers a four-goal deficit at the main break.

With plenty of work to do in the third quarter; the game broke into a struggle with the first goal of the second half coming by the Bulldogs at the eleventh-minute mark.

McKinnon was able to respond with his second and Joshua Rosman (15 disposals and seven marks) followed with his first of the game.

Sam Whitbread (19 disposals, six marks, and four tackles) managed to kick his first goal of the game as well; however, a late goal by the Bulldogs put the deficit to two goals at the last break.

Illingworth booted his fourth goal of the game to start the last quarter before Cam McGree (12 disposals and 22 hit outs) joined the long list of goalkickers.

Bogle kicked his second goal of the game. Then two goals in two minutes by Kyle Emery (18 disposals, eight marks, and seven tackles) gave the Panthers a valuable two-goal buffer.

A late goal by the Bulldogs saw the lead drop to single digits with a minute of play left; however, the Panthers were able to hold on and keep their final dreams alive.

The South Adelaide Reserves now face North Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday, August 18 from 11:30am.
