South Adelaide suffered a heartbreaking end to season 2015 after having a berth in the Finals snatched from their grasp in the final round of the minor season, falling by seven points to Central District.
Despite coming home with a wet sail in the fourth quarter the Panthers could not overcome the damage applied by the Bulldogs through the first three quarters of play.
Centrals burst out of the blocks and extended their lead at each of the first three breaks and took a five goal advantage into the final term. South Adelaide found some momentum late in the fourth, kicking six goals for the term, but left their run too late.
The loss meant the Bulldogs joined the Panthers with a 9-8-1 record for the season and allowed them to leapfrog South for fifth place on percentage.
Brede Seccull was the standout for South, gathering 23 disposals and seven clearances and performing well in the absence of Jake Veide as an inside-defensive midfielder throughout the day.
Daniel Bass was again outstanding in the ruck. A workhorse at the stoppages, Bass got his hand to 45 hit-outs and had six clearances of his own to go with 16 possessions.
Sam Overall was the Panthers most dangerous forward, kicking four goals, while Brad Crabb and Matt Rose were again steadying heads in defence and Emmanuel Irra fought hard all day to break the lines and spark some run.
