Full Injury List
A strong four-quarter display sees South Adelaide tighten their grip on second spot following a 19-point win against the Tigers at ACH Group Stadium on Sunday.
With second spot on the line, a superb second term performance by the Panthers in which they held the Tigers scoreless, helped set up the valuable 6.4 (40) to 3.3 (21) victory.
Playing Glenelg for the second time in three weeks, the Tigers came at the visitors hard within the opening minutes of the match but South's defence, which was spearheaded by Lisa Whiteley, managed to repel the Tigers' attempts.
Their continued holdout was eventually rewarded as the Panthers managed to get the first goal of the match, courtesy of Hannah Munyard.
Glenelg continued to attack in an attempt to cut South's early lead and came close scoring several times but were repelled thanks to the combined efforts of Whiteley, Lucy Northcott, and Jaslynne Smith.
But the anti-density rule would prove to be South Adelaide's early downfall, as it allowed Glenelg to even the scores with their first goal of the match.
The Panthers were able to steady thanks to a soaring pack mark by Indy Tahau, but still the scores remained locked at 1.1 (7) apiece at the first break.
It did not take long for the Panthers to have their first shot on goal after the first break, with a diving mark by Teah Charlton allowing her a clear shot at goal within the opening minute, but she just missed to the far side.
What followed was a midfield battle between the two sides, as the play fell to stoppage after stoppage.
