South Adelaide Under-18s marked their first home game with a big win over the undefeated Eagles.

June 1st and we played our 1st home game for the year, however it was not going to be easy.

The Eagles had played seven, won seven, on top of the ladder, and had not looked like losing a game so far.

We had five changes to the team that lost against North in round 7. Hayden Kernahan (Cove) and Ben Ryan (Happy Valley) played their first Reserves game for South, Harry Spacie was out sick Shannon Jones injured at work and Jason Horne was out with State under 16's duties.

We welcomed back Damon Freitag, coming in from State under 18 commitments.

Matthew Coulthard was back from injury, Clinton Calyun played his first game for the Year and we brought up another two under 16's Dylan Brown & Talon Copley.

After a close game last week it was important we responded well and got off to a good start.

Thats what we did, within two minutes Lachlan Williams was rewarded for a good defensive effort by Beau McCreery and finished.

We traded goals with the Eagles and at the first break we held a 3 point lead dispite most of the stats being level. 

The second quarter was much the same as the first, both teams again trading blows as both teams kicked 4 goals a piece.

Our goals came through Jack Fitzgerald, Liam Hamilton, Liam Nye and Damon Freitag.

The third quarter was an arm wrestle for the first 8 minutes before we broke through with a goal thanks to Matthew Coulthard. 

We kicked the next 3 through Phoenix Spicer, Mitch Riddle and Eamon Wilkinson before the eagles kicked their first of the quarter.

We ended the quarter with another one to Damon Freitag and took a 24 point lead into three quarter time.

The Eagles are a good side and we knew they would come out strong after the break, so it was going to be important that we started well again to prevent them from gaining confidence and starting a run.

This is not something we've managed to do in previous games, but we did this week.

In the first 2 and a half minutes of the last quarter we managed to kick 2 goals through Eamon Wilkinson and Liam Hamilton to take our lead out to a game high 36 points.

Eagles kicked another 10 minutes in and at this point in previous games where we would allow a team to get a run on.

This week we showed more composure and grinded out the next 10 minutes until Damon Freitag marked and kicked his third with only 8 minutes left to play.

The Eagles managed to kick the last two goals of the game but it was all over.

It was a good team performance and with 10 goal kickers, and it's a good sign that we didn't rely on one or two players to get the job done.

It was a good day and we hope we can continue that form as we look forward to round 9 where we take on Norwood in our second home game.

Round 9
