Lest We Forget: South Adelaide storms home to defeat Sturt by 39-points at Flinders University Stadium.

Five unanswered goals during the final term were enough for the fast-finishing Panthers to break the tussle with the Double Blues and keep their unbeaten streak alive, 11.15 (81) to 6.6 (42).

Finishing with 31 touches and 11 marks, Hayden Sampson received the Frank Barry Medal while Bryce Gibbs continued his standout start to the year by collecting 35 disposals and 7 tackles.

Despite claiming their second biggest win of the season, the final score line was a far cry from where the game looked to be heading as no more than a goal separated the two sides at each of the quarter time breaks.

The visitors put immense pressure around the ball during the opening term, and they were rewarded by doing so as the Double Blues kicked the first goal after four minutes of play.

Sturt looked to continue to build on this early lead but, as it has been so far this season, the Panthers backline remained steadfast. Jake Summerton stopped two attacks within just five minutes, a defensive action that would pay off at the other end.

After going seventeen minutes without a goal, Nic Schwarz was able to force a turnover in the Panthers forward half - this would then lead to Joel Cross crumbing the ball and snapping South's first of the day.

Trailing 1.3 (9) to 2.1 (13) at the first change, the Panthers deficit increased early into the second term on the back of a Kirkwood goal.

With plenty of numbers around the ball, the Panthers would once again struggle to break through with another major. This was until the fourteenth minute mark, when Eamon Wilkinson's thumping kick sailed through to bring the lead to within a kick.

However, this momentum was short-lived as the Double Blues kicked back-to-back goals within two minutes.

As the second term entered stoppage time and facing a fifteen-point deficit, Alex Cailotto stepped up with a much-needed goal for the Panthers.

Then Jake Tarca literally stepped up with a Mark of the Year contender, but his kick struck the woodwork.

 

Finishing the half with a newfound momentum, the Panthers composure inside 50 allowed them to set up Luke Bogle whose goal brought the deficit to just a single point at halftime.

Five minutes into the third term, Sam Skinner showed his soccer skills with two kicks off the ground, the last of which saw the ball cross the line for a goal, which took the lead for the Panthers.

Tarca then followed up by quickly snapping the ball out of a contest but his dribbling kick collided with the postin total the post would thwart three of the Panthers goals for the day.

Late in the third term and with the scores were locked, Cross once again popped up to drill his second of the day and hand the Panthers a one goal lead at the final change.

 

With both sides carrying-tired legs, the Panthers began to grind down the Double Blues during the final term as they threatened to break the game wide open.

The backline, which was well-supplied by Joe Haines, continued to help rebound the ball and one of these rebounding attacks almost ended in a Matthew Broadbent goal, but it struck the post.

Luckily, the Panthers were able to intercept the kick in and once again, Cross stepped up to kick his third major of the dayand from here the blue and white began to run away with it.

Minutes later, South Adelaide linked up through the middle before Sampson, the Frank Barry medallist, gained possession, put the after burners on, and kicked a thumping goal on the run.

Skinner would kick truly minutes later from close range, while Schwarz was able to collect the ball out of the pack and drill his first major of the match as the Panthers had the game in their control.

Continuing to rebound from defence and move the ball with pace, Souths final end to end play was finished up nicely by Tarca, whose goal came within seconds of the final siren.

After leading by just a goal at the final change, the Panthers amassed fourteen inside 50s to six which resulted in five goals to none.

In total, the Panthers managed to keep the Double Blues goalless for the final 34 minutes of play in order to come out on top with a decisive win, 11.15 (81) to 6.6 (42).

The unbeaten ladder-leading Panthers will now face off against Norwood at Coopers Stadium on Friday, 30 April, from 7:40pm.
