South Adelaide's Under-18s have claimed a 20-point victory over Norwood at the Parade on Wednesday night.

In Round 4 we played our fourth game in a row at an away venue. This time against Norwood at the Parade, grinding out a 20-point win!

This week we made two changes to the team that lost to North by less than a kick last weekend.

Matthew Coulthard came out due to injury, which opened the door for Wade Sweetman from Encounter Bay to play his first game, while Sam Hindes made way for our captain Aaron Douglass to come back in after a week out with illness.

With a short turn around in between games, and this week Playing Norwood at Norwood which is always hard, we needed to prepare well and make sure we had a good start. 

The Redlegs came out firing and kicked the first goal a minute into the game and signs were not good.

To the credit of our players, we steadied quickly and kicked the next four goals, with James Grimley and Mitch Riddle kicking one each and Liam Hamilton kicking two.

We went into the first break with an 18-point lead.

In the second quarter, Norwood controlled the football more and had 20 more disposals and 10 more uncontested marks.

Both teams had the same amount of scoring shots, but we made more of our opportunities in front of goal and extended or lead to 23 points at halftime.

The third quarter was a real arm wrestle and neither team could break free. It took Norwood until halfway through the quarter to kick their first and it took until Grimley kicked his second at the 23-minute mark before we could get one of our own.

Tyler Oliver and Lachlan Williams started to show some form through the midfield.

The last quarter was a worry. In other games we have let teams kick multiple goals in short periods.

The challenge for us was could we control the tempo of the game when Norwood wanted to play quick.

Norwood again kicked the first and looked to have momentum, but we countered with Beau McCreery kicking his first of the night.

The Redlegs kicked their second for the quarter and then missed some other opportunities before Riddle kicked his third for the night 12 minutes in to push our buffer to 21 points.

With eight minutes to go Norwood kicked their third for the quarter, which cut our lead to 13 points and the game was well and truly still alive.

Douglass, Oliver and Hamilton showed some great composure with the ball to soak up time off the clock.

When Hamilton kicked his third the game was out of reach for Norwood.

I was very proud of the players and the way the grinded out a win. They have learned from the past couple of games and got the job done.

Now we have a few days off for Easter, before getting ready to play away game number five against Sturt at Unley in a triple header prior the Reserves and League game.
