South Adelaide Under-18s fell to West Adelaide in challenging conditions at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday. 

June 29th and we played at our home deck on a very rainy Saturday morning. We were coming up against fourth placed West Adelaide. We knew we were going to have a battle all day, as the conditions were extremely wet.

This week we had 3 changes to the team that lost against Glenelg in round 10. We welcomed back Zachary Dumesny, Marcus Lippett and Matthew Coulthard.

As we ran out it was evident that the oval was very wet and the ball was going to be slippery all game.

After a loss the week before, it was important that we responded with a good start to the game to keep finals in close reach.

However, we did not get off to the start we wanted and the scores in the first quarter showed.

There was a glimpse of good play which landed us our first goal of the game from a very good set shot by Mitch Riddle kicking into the wind.

The second quarter saw us play with the wind behind us.

We had more of the ball going forward which resulted in repeat inside 50s, but we did not capitalise on the opportunities.

Talon Copley managed to toe one in off the ground, but that was one of the rare opportunities that was taken in front of goal.

The Bloods kicked 7 points into the wind, which increased the margin to 9 points at the main break.

As we ran out for the start of the third quarter the rain really started to come down and the wind was picking up.

The conditions were not going to get any easier.

West Adelaide kicked two goals in the third term to stretch their lead out to 20 points at the three-quarter time break.

We were going into the last quarter with belief because in previous weeks we have shown that we can produce a big enough score to win a game.

It started well with Tyler Oliver scoring a goal within the first minute and a half of the quarter.

We dominated this quarter with majority of the footy being played in South's forward half and 50, but had trouble scoring goals as 3 more behinds were scored.

It was a very congested final term with lots of players around the ball, and plenty of ball ups around the ground which ended in an 11-point loss.

It wasn't the outcome that we desired as it puts us 2 games out of the 4. We look to gain some form and momentum for next week against Sturt.

This is a must win game to keep our final hopes alive.
