South Adelaide's Under-16s booked their spot in the Finals with a hard-fought win over Norwood at the Parade on Wednesday evening.

We travelled to Norwood on a Wednesday night to face the Redlegs. A time slot not many of our players would played at before!

Playing the last game of the minor rounds, it was one we had to win to secure our place in the Finals.

The game was very well posed throughout the first quarter, with both sides having plenty of opportunities to score.

We gained control in the back half of the term and managed to capitalise on the scoreboard and in at the first break with a handy lead kicking slight breeze.

In the second, Norwood had total control and some very undisciplined defending in our back half enabled them multiple opportunities on goal. Fortunately for us they did not hurt us on the scoreboard.

We needed a response after halftime to keep our season alive. To the players credit they did just that and managed to come into three quarter time a goal to the good.

With seasons on the line for both club, and us playing a man down after Zaine Norman-Brown hurt his wrist, our young Panthers showed enormous courage to win the game and secure a Finals berth in 10 days time.
