South Adelaide's Under-16s claimed a 29-point victory over North Adelaide at Prospect Oval on Saturday afternoon.

Coming off our best win of the season, a 72-point victory over Glenelg at the bay, it was going to be important that the players remained focused and head into our game against the Roosters expecting the same result.

We got off to a slow start and were not clean with our skills and ball movement in the first 10 minutes, which allowed North some scoring opportunities.

Eventually we settled and gained control of the match as we started to impact the scoreboard.

In the second quarter we again worked our way on top with some really clean ball movement. This term we also had a much better impact on the scoreboard and went into halftime with a handy five-goal lead.

After the main break, we came out of the blocks really slow. To North's credit, they lifted their work rate and intensity and managed to win the quarter.

The final stanza was a very scrappy affair, but we managed to win the quarter and run away with a comfortable 29-point win.

We now face a short turnaround as we head to the Parade to face Norwood this Wednesday night.

The Redlegs are travelling well this season, sitting just below us on the ladder in third and having won their previous three games. 

This will be a great challenge for our boys in our final game before finals!
