South Adelaide's Under-16s went down by 59 points to West Adelaide on Sunday morning at Flinders University Stadium.

After an even first quarter, our young Panthers couldn't keep up well drilled Bloods outfit and fell to a 8.2 (50) to 17.7 (109) defeat.

Like last week, the boys got off to a slow start, but we worked our way into the first quarter.

We were playing some direct footy into our attacking half with some deep entries and gave our forwards a good chance to score.

We kicked three goals for the quarter and went into the first break down only a point.

However, after quartertime things did not go to plan.

Credit to West Adelaide, they played some really good football. They were really clean moving the ball and broke from stoppage with good speed and spread and we failed to defend it well at all.

Our skill execution and decision making fell away after quartertime and we went away from our structures too much with our defensive stoppage positioning and not controlling the ball down back, playing on too much and kicking it down the line and into Westies hands.

This meant we also didn't give our forwards great opportunities to score.

Matty Roberts had a real crack for us in another standout performance, but it was a poor team performance that we will need to build on at training this week

Full credit though to West for playing a great game. Their accuracy in front of goals and ability to hurt us off of turnovers really put the game away.

I think we learned a valuable lesson in how we need to prepare and be ready to play.

We were perhaps 5% off our game at the first bounce and West were switched on and clean from the get go.

It is a good lesson for our young guys to learn that at this level you can't afford to go into a game anything less than 100% focused.

We look forward to another week on the training track developing this side and getting ready to play the Eagles on Sunday.
