South Adelaide's Under-18s have officially been crowned minor premiers after a solid 71-point victory over North Adelaide at Footy Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Under-18s finished the minor round with a solid win against North Adelaide at Footy Park on Saturday.
It was a fantastic opportunity for our lads to get to play at such an iconic footy venue on a first class playing surface.
The day had all four Under-18s games for the round played at the same venue, which was a fantastic initiative by the SANFL.
The game was played at high speeds early in the first quarter and that seemed to help out guys get some good ball movement out of our back half to score.
The second quarter evened up with North lifting their offence and stoppage work.
The guys addressed some areas to fine tune at halftime and came out firing in the third quarter with our guys kicking five goals to one.
The final quarter tested our guys early with North taking some clean ball out of the centre square contests to score.
Our guys showed maturity to correct stoppage work in the quarter and get the game back on our terms for the last half of the final quarter.
Our players have been fantastic all year and deserve to finish on top of the ladder.
But, they are all very committed and footy focused for the pending finals.
For those that would like to come and watch us play, our Qualifying Final against Woodville-West Torrens will be played at 2:10pm this Saturday at Footy Park.
