A second half fadeout sees the South Adelaide Reserves suffer a 29-point loss at the hands of Glenelg on a sunny Saturday morning at Flinders University Stadium.

The Panther Reserves led at the main break by two points, but a one to six goal final half saw South Adelaide fall to a 4.7 (31) to 9.6 (60) defeat.

It was a scrappy start by both teams, but it would be the Tigers who would kick the first goal of the match.

However, the Panthers were able to even up the scores with a goal of their own, before a strong pack mark by Damon Freitag in the dying stages allowed him to kick truly and send the Panthers into the first break with a narrow 2.2 (14) to 1.2 (8) lead.

There was a bit of tension between the two sides during the second quarter, but the Panthers still remained competitive with Cooper Machin, Jesse McKinnon and Danny Juckers all performing impressively for the Panthers.

However, a late goal by Glenelg saw the Panthers lead get cut to single digits, and at the main break the scoreboard read 3.5 (23) to 3.3 (21).

To make matters worse, Freitag the Kangaroo Island big man, went off with an ankle injury which left the Panthers' side much shorter than their opponents.

Missing the height up-forward, the Tigers began to take control of the game.

First-gamer Nicholas Kraemer was impressive, as was the defence duo of Darnell Tucker and James Loneragan.

But the Panthers only managed one goal for the quarter and headed into the final break facing a 4.6 (30) to 8.4 (52) deficit.

The fourth quarter was much of the same for the Panthers as they struggled to find any momentum and only managed to register a point for the final term as they fell to a 4.7 (31) to 9.6 (60) defeat.

South Adelaide Reserves now turn their attention towards Central Districts and will face the Bulldogs at X Convenience Oval on Saturday July 11, from 2:25pm.
