South Adelaide's Under-18s are top of the ladder after our first win this weekend, an outstanding 107-point win over Central District in Round 1.

In average conditions this week, we travelled to neutral ground at Prospect Oval to play Central District.

We have a new-look team this year with eight players playing their first game for South in the Under-18 competition.

Going into the wind in the first quarter we had a good start, kicking the first two goals.

We did let Centrals back into the game with some mistakes, but finished the quarter strongly with Sam Hindes and Liam Hamilton kicking their first goal for us.

After holding an 11-point lead at the first change we started the second well going with the wind.

We Kicked our first for the quarter 38 seconds in from another first gamer Beau McCreery, who ended with three for the quarter.

Connor Sampson also kicked two for the quarter, but it was the impressive work from our mids Marcus Lippett, Nick Kraemer, Max Clifton and our backs Aaron Douglass and Zac Dumesny that kept the ball in our front half that was good to watch.

We restricted Centrals to one point and went into the main break with a 54-point lead.   

I think we dominated our third quarter with most of it being played in our front half, but it didn't show on the scoreboard as we only kicked three goals and Centrals kicked two of their own.

We won the quarter by five points with Matthew Coulthard on the wing and Lachlan Williams in the ruck starting to show some good signs.

We came out strong in the last quarter. It was the best I have seen these boys play.

We Kicked 8.1 the Bulldogs solitary behind.

McCreery kicked another three goals in the quarter to make it six for the game with another five players kicking goals.

We again kept the ball in our front half, but the most impressive thing was our tackling, which had not been that great over the trial period.

It was a great effort to win by 107 points and the players should be proud of the way they presented themselves in the first game of the year.

There is a long way to go and the challenge will be to continue to show up to every game with the same mindset and effort.

This week we travel down the road to the Bay to play Glenelg, who won their first game against Norwood over the weekend.
