South Adelaide's Under-16s got their season off to a winning start against Sturt on Saturday.

Our young Panthers kicked away in the second term and eventually ran out 8.7 (55) to 4.5 (29) victors.

After playing 41 players in our only trial game the week prior we had to cut the squad back to just 22 players.

Some very tough decisions had to be made and obviously some boys will be left disappointed after being stiff to miss out.

On Saturday it was a perfect day for football with very little breeze.

Sturt got off to a fast start and really controlled the first quarter, but were unable to hurt us on the scoreboard.

We were not clean and made some very basic skill errors.

However, In the second we lifted our work rate and took control of the game. Our skills and ball use were much cleaner and we were able to hurt the opposition by converting four goals to none.

We went in at halftime in control of the game and with a comfortable five goal lead.

The third quarter was a real arm wrestle. Sturt came out with some real urgency and kept us goalless, but they were only able to score one goal themselves.

We started the last quarter with more intent and again controlled the quarter to run away with our first win of the season.

Our next challenge comes against West Adelaide with an early start 9am Sunday back at Flinders University Stadium.

Clay Sampson
U16 Head Coach
