There were tough times for the South Adelaide Reserves as they lost by 58 points against North Adelaide at Prospect Oval on Saturday.

The Panther Reserves ANZAC clash saw them face off against the Roosters for the second time in 3 weeks but, due to a drastically different side, the result was much different.

After losing by 3 points in their previous clash, an undermanned Panthers outfit couldn’t match it with the Roosters who handed them a bitter defeat, 6.6 (42) to 14.16 (100).

Isaac Birt led the way with a team-high total of 22 disposals, and an equal game-high total of 8 marks. Meanwhile, Kurt Abbott, the Redtail recruit, kicked 2 goals for the blue and white.

It was a tough start to a tough day for the Panthers.

Kim Kantilla gave some promise early into the match with a chase-down tackle at half-back, while Cooper Rogers (19 disposals, 9 tackles, 8 clearances) was busy around the contest.

But the Panthers only had 2 inside 50 entries for the opening 18 minutes of the match.

Hugo Hoeck struck late into the first term with the visitors' first of the day, but by this point, the side already trailed by 34 points.

In the second term, some unsocial footy by the home side tried to get the Panthers riled, but Riley Jones got the last laugh by fooling 2 opponents on the wing with some clever footwork.

Jack Flett responded with the Panthers’ second major of the match. Then, Aaron Douglass intercepted a Roosters’ kick and made them pay with a rare goal of his own.

This mini fightback meant the Panthers headed into the main break facing a 3.3 (21) to 9.6 (60) deficit.

After being put up forward, Abbott gave the Panthers some reward with 2 goals during the second half: while Hoeck struck late into the final term with his second of the day. But ultimately, the undermanned Panthers were not able to match it with the home side.

Refusing to roll over, the Panthers fought till the final siren which signalled the 6.6 (42) to 14.16 (100) defeat.

Hopefully, the side will regain some players from injury, and they will hunt for their season-opening win when they clash with the Tigers at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday, March 1, from 9:15am.
