South Adelaide Under-18s lock up a spot in September with a soild performace over the Roosters in Saturday's Sammy D Medal match. 

At the start of Round 17, South Adelaide. Glenelg and North Adelaide were all on 9 wins for the year with only percentage separating each team.

Two clubs will make finals and one will miss. It was the penultimate game for us as we returned to Flinders University Stadium to take on North Adelaide, who were one of the teams that we are fighting for a finals spot with, it was a must win game to say the least.

We had two forced changes to our side this week with Jason Horne missing due to injury and Liam Nye, who was unfortunately injured Thursday night at training.

Into the side came Lachlan Williams back from the reserves and Lachlan Bahnisch who played his first Under-18 game for South after preforming well in our under 17 program.

We lost the toss again and went against the breeze, we had the first couple of opportunities to score, but couldn't convert.

North kicked the first before Daniel Sladojevic kicked our first in the ninth minute. Over the remainder of the quarter, we had more inside 50's then North, but everytime they went forward, they seemed to score.

We went into quarter time one-point down which was a good result considering the wind.

In the second quarter we had the wind and played the game in our front half. We had multiple opportunities and again couldn't make the most of it.

We did sore two goals through Liam Hamilton and Arlo Draper.

The positive was our defence kept North to only one point to give us a 14-point lead at the main change.

Our third quarters have not been our best this season, so the challenge was there for us to extend our lead not let the opposition back in.

Most of the disposals were even for the quarter, we were on top in clearances but North started to get some run and handball receives.

We both had the same amount of scoring shots, North just converted better than we did.

Our half time lead was cut back to just eight points going into the last quarter.

The Breeze was the same in the last quarter, so we expected to come home strong.

The key was an early goal, Ben Ryan marked and goaled in under two minutes and the boys were up and about.

The quarter ended with Damon Freitag and Sladojevic both having a couple of shots on goal, kicking one each

It wasn't our prettiest win, but effective and for a short while we moved into second before West Adelaide won over Glenelg taking it back.

The annual Sammy D Medal was awarded to the player who displays the most Courage, Commitment, and Spirit throughout the game, much like Sam Davis

Captain Aaron Douglass was awarded the Sammy D Medal for the qualities that he showed in Saturdays game. 

Next week we are back to Elizabeth to face Central District in the last game of the minor round, we will need to continue our winning form to have some momentum heading into finals.

Congratulations to the Cardijn College and the South Adelaide players who won a Grand Final last Wednesday night.
