South Adelaide were no match for the AFL laden Magpies; with a costly third quarter seeing the Panthers fall to a 28-point loss at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday.

The Panthers kept in contention for the first half; going into halftime with a slight 5.4 (34) to 6.5 (41) deficit.

However, Port Adelaide booted eight goals to the Panthers one during the third quarter to set up the 10.11 (71) to 15.9 (99) defeat.

The signs didn't look good early as the Magpies kicked the first two goals of the match.

However, the Panthers were able to steady thanks to a goal by Sam Overall (eight disposals, three tackles and four marks).

Not long later, Thomas Whittlesea (11 disposals, four tackles and three marks) kicked truly to send the Panthers into the first break tied at 2.2 (14) each.

Just three minutes into the second quarter; the Panthers kept the momentum going with a goal by Ben Heaslip (15 disposals, four tackles and five inside 50s).

But once again; Port Adelaide were able to kick back to back goals to stop the Panthers from creating any buffer over the visitors.

Reece Milson kicked his first senior SANFL goal midway through the quarter. Milson would go on to finish the match with 17 disposals, four marks and two clearances in a strong performance.

Port Adelaide would reply just two minutes later before Malcolm Karpany (22 disposals, four marks and seven clearances) could kick his first of the game.

Matt Rose was impressive during his 150th game; collecting 30 disposals, seven marks and nine tackles.

Motlop would kick his second goal of the game for Port Adelaide to send the Panthers into halftime with a narrow seven-point deficit.

Port Adelaide would continue with the same momentum in the third quarter; kicking three unanswered goals in the first six minutes of play.

Tyson Brown (19 disposals, three marks and four rebound 50s) and Joseph Haines (18 disposals, six marks and eight rebound 50s) were impressive down back and against quality opposition.

Joel Cross (24 disposals, seven marks and six inside 50s) managed to stem the flow with a goal midway through the quarter.

However, the Panthers would struggle to contain Port's AFL listed players as the Magpies went on to kick five unanswered goals to finish the quarter.

Motlop opened the fourth quarter with his fourth goal of the game; however, the Panthers refused to roll over.

Abe Davis (19 disposals, five marks and two clearances) opened his account with his first goal of the game. He would go on to kick another two straight goals late in the quarter.

On the back of Davis's three goals; Anthony Biemans (nine disposals, four tackles and two marks) kicked his first of the game but it was too late with the Panthers falling to a 10.11 (71) to 15.9 (99) defeat.

South Adelaide now face Central Districts at X Convenience Oval (Elizabeth) on Saturday, August 3 from 1:10pm.
