Flinders University Stadium - 23/03/19

South Adelaide 4.3 4.3 7.7 10.12 72
Eagles 3.0 4.3 10.7 13.10 88

South Adelaide's League could not keep pace with a free flowing Eagles outfit in their final trial game at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

A goalless second quarter and sluggish third term proved costly for Jarrad Wright's men, as they fell to a 10.12 (72) to 13.10 (88) defeat at the hands on Woodville-West Torrens.

The Panthers started well, controlling the play to take a nine point lead into the first break in play.

Ben Haren got his side off the mark with an accurate set shot from a pin point Abe Davis pass, before Davis soon got himself on the goal kickers list as he hammered home a long distance free kick.

The returning Nic Schwarz and co-captain Joel Cross also added majors scores for the term thanks to a clever snap in traffic and dead-eye set shot respectively.

However, after their fast start South stumbled in the second term and failed to fire a score.

Turnovers between the 50s, and in particular some poor forward entries allowed the Eagles to punish the hosts on the counter attack with their swift ball movement.

Fortunately, some in accuracy in front of goals and a goal saving Matt Rose fist on the goal line kept the scores tied at the major break.

The Eagles again controlled the third term. They capitalised on some poor skill errors and were providing their forwards with better service attacking the goal face.

Thankfully, Nick Liddle kept his side in the game with a strong mark and goal, before Darnell Tucker crumbed neatly to put his name on the scorecard.

Tom Whittlesea added his first with a long range effort against his old side, but it would be Woodville that held a three goal lead as the teams turned for home.

The game opened up in the final term and the Panthers ball skills returned to the classier level seen in the first term.

Tall defender Alex Cailotto was pushed forward and looked dangerous taking some contested marks early in the piece. His kicking was wayward though and he managed only 1.2 from his three attempts on goal.

Liddle and Whittlesea doubled their goal tallies and all of a sudden South were within a kick.

However, the Eagles swooped on the counter again to settle their nerves and secure a hard-fought win.

The Panthers get the season proper underway this Saturday, March 30 from 1.10pm against Central District at Flinders University Stadium.

Their game is bookended by the Reserves (10:30am) and Senior Women (3:45pm), both also against the Bulldogs.
