South Adelaide's Under-18s lost a nail-biting to North Adelaide at Prospect Oval on Saturday afternoon.

In Round 3 we played our second game at Prospect in three weeks, this time against North Adelaide losing another close game by under a goal.

We looked to have an unchanged line until our skipper Aaron Douglass had to pull out late, which gave an opportunity to Happy Valley big guy Ben Ryan.

We had a slow start, over-possessing the football. North put us under pressure and were far more direct, but missed some opportunities and we were lucky to kick out first on the siren at quarter time through Liam Hamilton.

To start the second quarter we came out strong, kicking the first three goals through Phoenix Spicer, Mitch Riddle and Liam Hamilton's second before again having another lapse in concentration.

In the last 10 minutes of the second North took control kicking four goals, while we hardly touched the footy

Halftime couldn't come quick enough and we went into the main break 16 points down with plenty of work to do.

The third started poorly and by the 10 minute mark North had kicked the first three goals of the quarter to take the lead out to 32 points.

However, we then started to play. We kicked the next four goals and started to gain some momentum. Eventually we went into the final change 6 points down, but I could see the players thought they were a chance.

James Grimley got an early one in the last quarter and then Matthew Reed kicked one to give us the lead. However, we were not able to make the most of some opportunities.

We traded goals before North kicked the final two of the game to win by five points.

Although we didn't get the points I am sure we will review, learn and move on quickly this week given our Round 4 match is this Wednesday night.

We take on the Redlegs at the Parade before having a few days off for Easter.

Round 4
South Adelaide @ Norwood
Coopers Stadium - Wednesday 17th of April at 7.40pm
