A dominant second half performance by South Adelaide's U17s set up the 34-point victory over Norwood at Thebarton Oval on Tuesday night.

Similar to the previous week; South Adelaide allowed the opposition to kick the first two goals of the match. However, the Panthers responded and managed to hold Norwood scoreless in the second half.

"We started off slow, but once the nerves died down and the girls settled into the game, we really started to play our brand of football and got the game back onto our terms" U17s head coach Ryan Skouburg said.

"Very happy with how we're progressing as a team, I think we took big strides in the way we want to move the ball and held structure well. Once again proud of the way the girls responded when tested early" he said.

The signs didn't look good early; as Norwood booted two goals in the first four minutes.

It wasn't until the eleventh minute mark that the quick-thinking Jasmin McIntosh kicked the ball off the ground to get the Panthers first goal of the game.

Heading into the first break trailing by four points; the stand outs in the first quarter was the eventual best on ground Emogen Johnson as well as Stellar Remphrey and All-Australian Teah Charlton.

"After the first quarter everyone kicked up a couple of gears; and the communication and defensive pressure was great" Emogen Johnson said.

Coming out after the first break; Johnson continued her impressive performance; setting up Rayne Rivalland who kicked casually from the pocket to get the Panthers first of second quarter after just three minutes of play.

Happy Valley product Callie Wilson showed her class in the second while Chelsea Kennedy displayed her great pace after missing the previous round.

The Panthers had plenty of the football in the second quarter but failed to make the most of it.

It wasn't until Johnson set up Mcintosh for her second of the game in the dying stages of the quarter that the Panthers began to make a buffer over their opponents.

Heading into the main break with a slight 3.7 (25) to 3.0 (18) lead; the Panthers had plenty of work to do to ensure their victory.

And it was Brooklyn Kraft who answered the call; taking a strong mark before kicking truly to put the Panthers lead up to double digits.

Then Johnson continued her stand out performance by kicking one of the goals of the night.

After creating immense forward pressure, she dived onto the loose ball and somehow, she was able to get up and get a boot to it despite having a numerous number of opponents around her.

Heading into the final break with a 5.8 (38) to 3.0 (18); the Panthers had begun to work brilliantly at both ends of the ground.

Coming out after the final break; Willunga product Lauren Clifton showed her class down back. Also impressive was Christies Beach product Gypsy Schirmer whose actions saw her receive fourth best for the match.

Meanwhile, McLaren's Tahlia Buethke continued her impressive display as she continually got into the thick of the action. Her stand out performance was the best of hers in the blue and white and saw her be named second best for the game.

Late in the final quarter, Rivalland kicked truly from the pocket to get her second goal of the game.

Not long after; Johnson showed her forward pressure again and scooped up the loose ball before running into an open goal to get her second goal of the game.

The siren sounded not long after to give the Panthers the 3.0 (18) to 7.10 (52) win.

The Under-15s and Under-17s Girls take on the Eagles in the final match of the Statewide Super Talent Shield next Tuesday night (September 10) at Alberton Oval (U15 - 5:30pm, U17 - 7:00pm).
