Friday night fun for the Under-18's while the Under-16's struggled under lights.

After getting back on the winners list last week, the Under-18’s looked to continue their winning form against Norwood on a Friday night under lights.

Norwood were quick out of the blocks securing the first major of the night which was returned by Cohen Shortridge halfway through the first. The play then fell into a patch of contested football allowing Oliver Goss and Ayden Duke get involved racking up 11 and nine tackles respectively. Norwood managed to find themselves a goal before Shortridge could secure his second.

Holding only a two-point lead over the Redlegs, the Panthers knew they needed to take it to the next level in the second quarter. Tom Wheaton kicked the first two goals of the second, followed by a goal-for-goal pattern with Duke and Jay Chapman getting involved.

Wheaton and Phoenix Hargrave showed off their talents to find the ball, finishing on 32 and 21 disposals respectively. While Ryan Borlace and Sebastian Oliver would show off their skills registering 31 and 26 hit outs respectively and tackling machine Oliver Goss finished on a match-high of 11 tackles. 

The Panthers put their foot down in the third term, registering three majors from Hargrave, Shortridge and Wheaton to Norwood’s single goal.

Heading into the final quarter, the Panthers had a four goal lead with Blake Rodrigues,Jaxon Hams and Dakota Sterzl contributing majors to the winning score. Meanwhile, Ryan Pearsons was strong down back throughout the match finishing with a game high of 6 marks.

The Under-18’s now have a few weeks off before taking on Woodville West Torrens on Saturday July 1st at 1:15pm.

Match Replay


After a tough few weeks for the Under-16’s, they hoped to find some form against Norwood under lights.

The first quarter didn’t go the way of the Panthers, only managing one major score from Noah Kliems Carlaw to Norwood’s four. The second quarter saw the boys switch gear, creating some pressure around the ball and finding themselves in front of goal. Before the main break, Jacob McGarry kicked three and Patrick Carman registered his first of the match.

Down by only two goals and with momentum on their side, the Panthers looked to take the game on with Hudson Voigt kicking the first of the third quarter. However, this would be the only goal for the term against Norwood’s three.

Jacob Renshaw and Thomas Simpson were busy around the ball registering 15 disposals each and combing for 20 tackles and 14 clearances. Lewis Bird was strong in the ruck collecting 40 hit outs and five tackles.  

Heading into the final quarter with a four goal deficit, the Panthers looked to close it through two goals kicked by Jett Reid. Unfortunately, this was not enough to overcome the Redlegs.

The Under-16’s will welcome a few weeks off and look to bounce back when they play Woodville West Torrens on Saturday July 1st at 11:00am.
