South Adelaide's Under-18s fell just short of a Grand Final berth on Saturday afternoon, falling to Woodville-West Torrens by three points in their Qualifying Final at Football Park.

Our Under-18s played for a spot in the Grand Final on Saturday against a strong Eagles team.

Unfortunately our guys came up three points short in what was a very high quality game, succumbing to a 13.9 (87) to 14.6 (90) defeat. 

The first quarter saw both teams test each other out by using some fast play from the back half to score, with scores locked even at 4.2 each at the first break.

In the second quarter our guys had early field territory and some shots at goal but were unable to finish the work.

The Eagles controlled the last half of the quarter and went into halftime with a six point advantage.

After halftime both teams were at the contest again with many big hits and strong attacks on the ball.

We were able to be more efficient in front of goals this quarter with three straight goals.

Unfortunately we allowed the Eagles to score 3.1 to go to the final break seven points up.

The last quarter saw both teams score freely like in the first quarter and we were able to work our way into the lead half way into the quarter.

But to the Eagles credit they kept coming and managed to get their noses in front just before the final siren sounded.

Our guys were brave all day and unlucky not to have direct passage into the Grand Final.

We will now do all we can to get our minds back on the job at hand this Friday night in the Preliminary Final against Sturt.

Thanks to all the parents, friends and senior staff and players who came out to support our players.

Hope to see you all at Footy Park again this Friday night. Our clash with the Double Blues gets underway at 6:40pm.

Under 18s Coach
