South Adelaide's Under-16s have held strong to record a two-goal win over Central District at Prospect Oval on Saturday afternoon.

After falling to the Eagles after the siren the week before it was always going to be interesting to see how the group responded.

In trying conditions we ventured to North Adelaide to take on Central District at a neutral ground. They were coming in losing all three previous games and were hungry for a win.

To the players credit we got off to a good start and controlled the quarter kicking with a 3-4 breeze, our pressure was high and we forced Centrals into making mistakes.

Our ball movement and control was excellent. We also managed to hurt the opposition on the scoreboard kicking five goals to one.

In the second we dropped our intensity, lost our way and allowed the opposition some easy entries inside 50 and in doing so we allowed some easy goals and let them back into the game.

At the main break we lead by four points.

It was going to be an important third quarter, kicking with the breeze. Once again we showed great composure and control and moved the ball well to kick 3.4 to just two behinds.

Heading into the last quarter and kicking into the breeze it was going to be important we did not go too defensive and we had to be able to kick goals.

Fortunately, we were able to slot one against the wind and only allow Centrals to kick 2.3.

The boys showed great character to bounce back from the disappointment of last week. Now we tackle Glenelg in what will be another great challenge.
