South Adelaide's Under-18s are still undefeated in 2017 after claiming a 20.20 (140) to 4.6 (30) win over Glenleg at Football Park on Saturday morning.

The Under-18s traveled to Footy Park on Saturday for our Round 8 clash with the Bays. The game was held after the Under-18 State Team training session, so our guys were keen to put on a good show and continue their good form from the week before against Sturt.

As expected Glenelg played a tall forward line and had a height advantage over our back six, but it was in the midfield where our guys were able to get on top of the Tigers and we were able to move the ball forward from the contest first.

We didn't convert our scoring opportunities very well in the first quarter, kicking 2.6, but we were able to keep the ball in our front half most of the time. We were also able to hold Glenelg to a single behind and took a 17-point lead into the first change.

In the second quarter we stretched the lead to 43 points thanks to a better conversion rate in front of goal, while we continued to hold the Bays goalless.

At halftime, the line coaches and players discussed some focus areas for the second half. The Glenelg team challenged us at times in the third quarter, but our backs really stood up in their one on one contests and were not only able to win these clashes, but also set up many scoring opportunities from our back half.

The mids continued to win the ball first and use it well going into the forward 50, while the forwards worked their patterns well and gave the ball carrier many options in attack. They also applied great pressure on the opposition when we lost possession in our front 50.

It was pleasing to see the players hold their focus and remain consistent in their approach to each contest even when being well in front on the scoreboard.

The leaders did a great job in managing the mindset of the whole team and should be recognised for this.

We now move on and prepare ourselves for our biggest battle so far this year against the Eagles at home this Sunday.
