A costly second half saw the Panthers fall to a crushing 45-point defeat to Norwood at Coopers Stadium on Saturday.

The Panthers started strong, going into quarter time with a 3.6 (24) to 2.2 (14) lead.

However, South Adelaide managed just four more goals for the rest of the game while the home side kicked another 13 goals to hand the Panthers a 7.16 (58) to 15.13 (103) defeat.

Inaccuracy also didn't help the Panthers chances; finishing the game with a 30% scoring accuracy.

The first goal for the Panthers came through Thomas Whittlesea (nine disposals and five tackles) after just three minutes of play.

However, the Panthers wouldn't score another goal until Joel Cross (14 disposals, four tackles, and two clearances) kicked truly at the 23rd-minute mark.

Matt Rose was busy with 27 disposals, seven marks, and eight tackles while fellow defender Joe Haines continues his streak of good performances with 20 disposals, two marks, and eight rebound 50s.

Mark Noble (14 disposals and three clearances) would follow up not long after to give the panthers two quick goals to end the first quarter.

Coming out after the first break it was Ben Heaslip (18 disposals, six marks, and four tackles) who struck first.

However, Norwood would take control of the game with the next four goals to finish the quarter; sending the Panthers into the major break facing a 4.7 (31) to 7.5 (47) deficit.

South Adelaide's lack of a true ruckman showed; finishing the game with 27 hit-outs to Norwood's 54.

The Panthers managed to hold the home side to just one goal in the third; however, the Panthers inaccuracy meant they weren't able to make the most out of their momentum.

Cross managed to kick his second of the game at the seventh-minute mark and that would be the last goal for the visitors until Liam Fitt (11 disposals and five tackles) kicked truly at the eighteenth-minute mark.

Abe Davis continued his run of strong performances; finishing the match with 32 disposals, four marks, and five tackles as well as seven clearances.

Coming out after the final break and only trailing by seven points; things went drastically wrong for the Panthers as they managed just one goal through Fitt's second of the game, to Norwood's seven in the final term.

Norwood created many more chances than the visitors; finishing with 60 inside 50s to the Panthers 35.

Reece Milsom on debut finished with 11 disposals, two clearances and four tackles.

South Adelaide now sit sixth on the ladder game behind fifth spot but with greater percentage.

With the race for final spots becoming even tighter.

Be sure to get to Flinders University Stadium on Sunday to support the boys as they face bitter rival Port Adelaide on Sunday, July 28 from 2:10pm.
