A costly second term set up the South Adelaide Women for a tough 15-point loss against Sturt at Wigan Oval on Saturday.

South Adelaide struggled to gain momentum during their ANZAC Round clash with the Double Blues. They were held goalless for 3 quarters of footy which resulted in their defeat, 2.1 (13) to 4.4 (28).

This result has seen the Panthers slip out of a finals position, with the side now sitting a game below the fourth-placed Redlegs with 2 matches to go; however, South has a healthier percentage.

On a positive note, Senna Gulden, from the UNSW ES Bulldogs, had a strong outing on her debut for the Panthers. Gulden finished with 8 clearances, 9 tackles, and an equal game-high total of 22 disposals.

From a first gamer to a Panther product, Gypsy Schirmer was also impressive as she finished with 22 disposals and 12 tackles. 

Heading into this match, South and Sturt were both fighting for their spots in the top 4. And this showed during the opening term as the two teams refused to give each other an inch. 

The only scores from the first quarter were 3 behinds, of which 2 came from the home side.

Then the game was broken wide open during the second term. But unfortunately, this advantage was not in the Panthers' favour.

The Double Blues booted 3 unanswered goals within the 20-minute term. This would end up being similar to the final losing margin.

A minute into the third term, Courtney Barry registered the Panthers' first goal of the day. Brooke Boileau followed up midway through the term with South’s second goal to cut the deficit to 9 points.

However, a goal by the home side during the closing stages of the third term sent the Panthers into the final break trailing by 15 points, 2.1 (13) to 4.4 (28).

The damage that the side had suffered during the second term proved too big of a hurdle to overcome. Both sides remained scoreless during the final term, which led to the Panthers' 15-point defeat.

Overall, it was a tough match for the Panthers, who were without their strong contributors of Campbell, Waterhouse, and Archbold. 

Yet they were bolstered by the return of Cheyenne Hammond from AFLW duties. She went on to have 22 disposals, 7 clearances and 6 tackles.

The South Adelaide Women will face off against Glenelg in a must-win clash at ACH Group Stadium on Sunday, 1 May, from 11:50am.

We're ready for 2022, are you?
