Madison Bennett Ruled Out With Ankle Injury
South Adelaide forward Madison Bennett has been ruled out indefinitely after breaking her right ankle against West Adelaide on Saturday night.
The diminutive speedster suffered the injury early in the second term of the Panthers Round 7 clash with the Bloods at City Mazda Stadium.
As Bennett applied some of her trademark forward pressure to West Adelaide's Abbie Ballard, her opponent came crashing down awkwardly on her legs.
"Maddie came off the ground in obvious discomfort during the second quarter and took no further part in the game," said Women's Football Operations Manager, Jonathon Parker.
"Scans later revealed a break in her ankle and she is now in a cast and unlikely to play again this season.
"It is a heartbreaking result for Maddie, who has not only been enjoying a great debut season, but is also extremely passionate and dedicated to her craft.
"However, she is still only 18 and has an extremely bright future ahead of her. We look forward to seeing her make a full recovery and get back to her tenacious best on the field."
