South Adelaide's Under-16s put in strong team performance to knock off Glenelg by 72 points at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

This week we came up against a very good Glenelg side on their home deck. So we new it was going to be a great challenge for our group.

The focus throughout the week was on our pressure on the opposition when they had the ball.

We got off to a fast start. Our pressure was up and it looked like the players came in with the right mindset and were ready to play.

Our control and ball movement was excellent and our defenders killed the ball in the air.


We put on some scoreboard pressure with eight scoring shots to two and took a 21-point lead into the first break.

The second quarter was similar and the players maintained the pressure and ball control we needed.

Again we controlled the scoreboard with seven scoring shots to one and headed in at halftime with a handy 37-point lead.

The second half was all the same.

We continued to control the footy in our forward half, winning the inside 50 count 51-28 and outweighing the shots on goal 31 to nine.

If not for some inaccuracy we could have won by much more.

Overall we were very happy with a great team performance from the boys.

This weekend we travel to Prospect Oval to face a North Adelaide side that is just percentage below us on the ladder in what should be another great challenge for our players.
