South Adelaide's Under-18s knocked off West Adelaide to the tune of 32 points at City Mazda Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday we played our sixth away game in a row.

This time against West Adelaide at City Mazda Stadium (Richmond Oval) in our first standalone game, following the Under-16s season coming to an end last week.

We made seven changes to the team that lost to Sturt in Round 5.

We welcomed back our captain Aaron Douglass, Daniel Sladojevic, Damon Freitag and Beau McCreery re-joined us from State Under-18 commitments.

Hayden Kernahan played his first game for the club and we brought up two Under-16s in Jason Horne and Arlo Draper.

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

Fortunately, we did just that. Under three minutes into the game, Mitch Riddle was front and centre to a contested ball in our forward 50, took the ball cleanly and finished for a goal.

Unfortunately, the fast start ended there, as West Adelaide kicked the next four goals.

Daniel Sladojevic pulled one back for us, but West kicked another to finish the quarter 22 points up.

However, we dominated the second quarter.

Although the disposals were similar, we had over twice the inside 50 entries and Sladojevic made the most of his opportunities kicking 3.1.

Freitag, Horne and Connor Sampson all kicked singles and overall we kicked six goals to a single behind and went into the main break now 16 points up.

After halftime it felt like we controlled the third quarter, but didn't manage to convert our chances. We kicked 1.7 points to 2.1, which kept West in the game and meant we still had some work to do.

The Bloods kicked the first goal of the last quarter to cut our lead to 11 points.

However, we kicked the next three. Riddle added a pair and Sampson another in the space of three minutes to give us some breathing space.

West kicked the next before Phoenix Spicer kicked his first just before the siren to give us a 32-point win.

It was a good day and we hope we continue that form as we move forward.

This weekend there is a State Game bye before we play yet another away game against North Adelaide. Our second against the Roosters at Prospect Oval and third in total at the venue.

At least there will be a strong contingent of Panthers supporters, as our game is the first of a triple header with League and Reserves matches following us.
