Round 7 - Hisense Stadium - 11/07/20

South Adelaide 1.5 1.6 2.8  3.11  29
West Adelaide 0.1 0.4 1.4 1.6 12

Goals: Charlton 2, Peters
Best: Charlton, Schirmer, Tahau, Buchanan, Smith, Whiteley
Injuries: Nil

South Adelaide continue their winning streak with a hard-fought 17-point victory over the third placed Bloods at Hisense Stadium on Saturday.

Despite having double as many scoring shots as West Adelaide, the Panthers were forced to fight hard in order to hold onto second spot, but an impressive second half display helped them set up the 3.11 (29) to 1.6 (7) victory.

With plenty on the line, the Panthers started out the better of the two teams but despite several inside 50s, South failed to convert.

The young AFLW duo of Nikki Gore and Hannah Munyard were impressive early, while Jaslynne Smith's intercepting skills made sure that the ball stayed down the Panthers end. But still the Panthers struggled to find the goals.

This was until the eventual best on ground for the Panthers, Teah Charlton, stepped up and kicked her first goal of the match.

Following this, young Gypsy Schirmer took an awesome contested mark as the Panthers looked to snare another goal before quarter time, but the siren bet them.

Despite having five more scoring shots, the Panthers headed into the first break with a narrow 1.5 (11) to 0.1 (1) lead.

Within the opening minute of the second term, the defensive trio of Sam Pratt, Emily Brockhurst and Smith all combined to prevent a West Adelaide goal as the Bloods attacked deep into their forward 50.

With the Bloods turning up the pressure on the Panthers, Indy Tahau attempted to open the game up with a rugby inspired run but still, South Adelaide struggled to get the ball down their end.

Re-joining the side after missing last week, Lauren Buchanan led by example as she won a two versus one contest as the Bloods continued to push for their first goal of the match.

South Adelaide were able to find some relief through Nicole Campbell who was able to clear it for the Panthers, but the Bloods kept coming.

Despite repeated inside 50s, South Adelaide's defence were able to hold firm.

A touch on the line by Elke Jarvis prevented a Bloods goal, while a beautiful spoil by Munyard prevented a certain West Adelaide goal as well.

The Bloods then came close to scoring after the siren but missed, allowing the Panthers a narrow 1.6 (12) to 0.4 (4) lead at the main break.

As the second best on ground for the Panthers, Schirmer continued to make her presence felt at half forward, while Madison Bennett was able display some of her signature pressure.

But after repelling so many attacks, the Bloods were finally able to breakthrough with their first goal of the match to which the Panthers were able to reply to quickly thanks to an awesome goal by Charlton.

Very late into the third term, a mark by Buchanan stopped another certain West Adelaide goal which allowed the Panthers to head into the final break with a slight 2.8 (20) to 1.4 (10) lead.

With the game very much still up for grabs, West Adelaide came close to scoring a goal within the first minute of the final term but it was safely escorted over the line by Brockhurst.

This, coupled with Smith's composure and some great follow up efforts by Pratt, made sure that the Bloods could not get a much-needed early goal.

Midway through the final term, Brianna Wedding stepped up with a huge mark in defence, while Cheyenne Hammond was able to break out with one of her signature runs along the wing.

Not to be out done, Czenya Cavouras also showed her pace with an impressive run through the centre.

These rebound efforts finally paid off, as the Panthers were able to tighten their grip on the game with Sheena Peters booting her first goal midway through the final term.

Likewise, Gore's signature tackling ability saw the Panthers manage to trap the ball in their forward line but despite having many forward entries, they still struggled to reflect it on the scoreboard.

The Bloods' best performers, Newman, Martin, and Thompson, all combined to try and mount a late comeback.

But Smith was able to stay strong and win a one on one contest deep in the Bloods' forward line to prevent any chance of a West Adelaide fightback and the siren sounded to hand South the hard-fought 3.11 (29) to 1.6 (12) win.

The second placed Panthers now turn their attention towards Glenelg as they will clash with the Tigers at ACH Group Stadium on Sunday July 19, from 1:40pm.

South Adelaide @ Central District
Round 3 - X Convenience Oval - 11/07/20

South Adelaide 2.4 3.7 5.11  11.12  78
Central District 1.1  4.1 4.2 5.4 34

Goals: McCreery 3, Wilkinson 2, Bogle, Cailotto, Dumesny, Fitt, Haren, McGree
Best: Haines, Broadbent, Kappler, McGree, Highmore, Heaslip
Injuries: Nil

An eight goal to one second half sees the fast-finishing Panthers defeat the Bulldogs by 44 points at X Convenience Oval on Saturday.

South Adelaide showed plenty of promise during the opening half and enjoyed many more forward entries than the Bulldogs, but similar to the previous round they failed to reflect it on the scoreboard.

However, with the scores tied at the main break, the fast-finishing Panthers charged home during the final two quarters to claim an impressive 11.12 (78) to 5.4 (34) victory.

Following an unlucky loss during the previous round, South Adelaide were determined to start out as the better side, and they capitalised early on with Eamon Wilkinson kicking the first goal of the day after just two minutes of play.

The Panthers came close to extending their lead even further but could only manage two behinds, this was until Alex Cailotto kicked truly to hand South an early 14-point lead.

Central District managed to respond with their first and only goal of the opening term at the tenth minute mark, and the Panthers headed into the first change with a 2.4 (16) to 1.1 (7) lead.

Five minutes into the second term, some magic by Liam Fitt saw the Panthers extend the lead to double digits.

However, the home side finished off the second quarter strongly with three unanswered goals.

Despite the Panthers having five more scoring shots, they headed into the main break with the scores locked at 3.7 (25) to 4.1 (25).

South Adelaide continued to wrack up the inside 50s during the third term, but it would not be until the eight-minute mark that the Panthers would score the first major of the quarter, courtesy of the third gamer, Beau McCreery

South Adelaide's next goal would also come via another third gamer, with Zachary Dumesny kicking truly midway through the third term.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the ground, Jaidan Kappler continued to play impressively.

While South's young home-grown talent were impressive, so were their senior players.

With Joe Haines continually making his presence felt around the ground during his best on ground performance for the Panthers, in which he collected a total of 30 disposals and 11 marks.

Likewise, the two recruits in Matthew Broadbent (26 disposals, 9 clearances) and Tom Highmore (19 disposals, 8 marks) were also impressive in the blue and white.

The strong Panther defence limited the home side to just one point for the third quarter but some wayward kicking during the final stages prevented the Panthers from further tightening their grip on the game, but they still enjoyed a strong 5.11 (41) to 4.2 (26) lead at the final break.

Once again, South Adelaide put on an impressive fourth quarter display with many forward entries, however this time they were able to reflect it on the scoreboard.

After seven minutes of play, Cam McGree booted his first goal of the game and the Panthers first of the final term.

Then just two minutes later, McCreery followed up with his second goal of the match.

As the Panthers began to take control of the match, Luke Bogle joined the growing list of goalkickers with his first of the day while Wilkinson was able to follow up with his second.

Meanwhile, Ben Heaslip (24 disposals) and Joel Cross (25 disposals) continued to provide the Panthers with plenty of fire power.

In the dying stages of the fourth quarter, McCreery struck again with his third goal of the game, before Central District could reply at the twenty-eighth minute mark with their first goal since the second quarter.

A very late goal by Ben Haren topped off an outstanding final term for the Panthers, in which they piled on six goals to the Bulldogs' one to claim the impressive 11.12 (78) to 5.4 (34) victory.

The Panthers managed to dominate the air with 131 marks to the Bulldogs' 107. Likewise, they enjoyed many more inside 50s with 54 to the Dogs' 20.

South Adelaide's next match sees them play at home for the first time this season, as they set their sights on Sturt and will clash with the Double Blues at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday July 18, from 2:10pm.

With more information to come, the 1000 spectator limit will likely still be applied, with Home and Season members being able to access the match.

Goals: Cameron, Elmes, Potter

A dismal second half display sees the South Adelaide Reserves fall to the Bulldogs at X Convenience Oval on Saturday.

It was a tough day for the South Adelaide Reserves, as the side struggled to find any momentum before falling to a disappointing 3.5 (23) to 14.10 (94) loss.

The Panthers matched it with the home side during the opening term, with a late Bulldogs goal sending South Adelaide into the first break facing a narrow 1.0 (6) to 2.2 (14) deficit.

The low scoring affair continued into the second term, with the Panthers once again matching it with the Bulldogs but still faced a narrow 2.1 (13) to 2.5 (17) deficit at the main break.

However, the game would break open during the second half as the home side booted 12 goals while South could only manage the one which set up the disappointing 3.5 (23) to 14.10 (94) loss.

Sam Whitbread, Jack Elsworthy and Tyler Davies rounded out the best players for the Panthers.

The Panthers third loss in as many weeks now sees them sit at the bottom of the ladder.

The South Adelaide Reserves will now look to bounce back as they face Sturt at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday July 18, from 11:30am.

Round 3 - Flinders University Stadium - 11/07/20

South Adelaide 6.1 9.2 11.6 16.12  108
Central District 0.4  2.6 4.8 4.8 32

Goals: Hamilton 5, Horne, Nye 3, Magor, Spicer 2, Draper
Best: Hamilton, Spacie, Horne, Spicer, Magor, Birt

The South Adelaide Under-18s bounce back in spectacular fashion with a 76-point win over Central District at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The Panthers put on a dominant display in which they booted six unanswered goals during the opening term and five unanswered goals during the final term to set up an impressive 16.12 (108) to 4.8 (32) victory.

The third-placed Panthers looked very dangerous early, and after just five minutes of play, the Panthers had kicked three majors two of which were kicked by Liam Hamilton.

South would continue with this early momentum for the remainder of the opening quarter, with back to back goals by Phoenix Spicer sending the Panthers into the first break with a strong 6.1 (37) to 0.4 (4) lead.

Coming out after quarter time, the Panthers continued to tighten their grip on the game with the first goal of the second term, which came via Hamilton's third of the day after just two minutes of play.

In a great defensive effort, Central District would not register their first goal of the game until the fifteenth minute mark of the second term, at which point the Panthers sat with a 45-point lead.

However, South Adelaide would take their foot off the pedal in the later half of the second term, which allowed the Bulldogs to follow up with their second of the day.

Both Jason Horne and Harry Spacie continued to be impressive in the blue and white, and the Panthers headed into the main break with a very accurate 9.2 (56) to 2.6 (18) lead.

However, this impressive accuracy would be short-lived, as South Adelaide registered four behinds in just three minutes during the opening stages of the third term.

The third quarter would prove to be more even overall, with both sides managing two goals each.

Enjoying a strong 11.6 (72) to 4.8 (32) lead at the final change, the Panthers finished the game off in spectacular fashion as they booted five final quarter goals while holding the Bulldogs scoreless.

Hamilton managed to boot his fifth of the day during the dying stages of the match to hand the Panthers a dominant 16.12 (108) to 4.8 (32) victory.

South Adelaide's Under-18s now face the second placed Sturt at Peter Motley Oval on Saturday July 18, from 11:30am.

Vale Mark Naley

Vale Mark Naley

South Adelaide Champion passes away.

The South Adelaide Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing of Hall of Famer Mark Naley.

A revered figure at South Adelaide, CEO Neill Sharpe said Mark's loss after a brave battle with illness over the last few years will be felt by many across the football landscape.

"Mark has left an enormous impact on the South Adelaide Football Club, where he captured a generation of fans in the 1980s, and gave the South Adelaide faithful plenty to be excited about. 

"He was such a humble champion of the game and maintained a great connection to the Club following his playing day. Over the last few years, while battling with his health, he'd still get to South Adelaide games and happily sit on the outer or even have a kick of the footy as he did last year at Alberton with son Sam and grandson Finn.

"He is one of the greats of South Adelaide and will be sorely missed."

Mark joined South Adelaide from Sacred Heart College and quickly rose through the Club's junior and senior ranks.

A member of the 1979 Reserves Premiership team, Naley made his debut for the League side a year later and remained a mainstay in the team through to 1986.

In 1984, Mark won the Knuckey Cup (South Adelaide Best and Fairest) after his best season to date.

In 1987 Mark left the Panthers to play with Carlton in the VFL, where he was a regular member of the Blues side all season, finishing the year with a Premiership and 12 Brownlow Medal votes to his name (good enough for equal 10th).

After the 1990 season with Carlton, Mark decided to return to South Adelaide, where he would win the 1991 Magarey Medal (after finishing as runner-up on two previous occasions).

Mark also enjoyed a successful State career. He was selected to the South Australian State Team for the first time in 1981 and made 16 State of Origin appearances between 1981-89 and 1991-92 , winning the Tassie Medal in the 1987 National Carnival and the Fos Williams Medal as South Australia's best player in 1991. He was awarded All-Australian selection in 1986 and 1987.

Mark retired in 1993 after 236 appearances (231 goals) for the Panthers, 67 for Carlton (74) and 16 for South Australia.

He is also a Life Member, Hall of Fame Inductee of South Adelaide Football Club and Member of the "Greatest Team Ever", as well as an inaugural inductee of the South Australian Football Hall of Fame.

Our thoughts are with wife Cassie, children Hannah and Sam, step-daughter Rose and grandson Finn, during this difficult time.

Goals: Campbell, Charlton, Kirk, Peters, Schirmer

Injuries: Nil

A dominant second half display sees the South Adelaide Women get the win over Central District by 16 points at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

Continuing their winning streak to two games the Panthers managed to register a three goal to one second half to come out on top with a 5.6 (36) to 3.2 (20) victory.

With second place on the line, South Adelaide looked good early with Madison Bennett showing her signature forward pressure.

However, it would not be until the sixth minute mark that Jess Kirk would boot the Panthers first goal of the game.

Nicole Campbell came close to kicking her first goal of the day, but it was marked on the line by fellow Adelaide Crow, Sarah Allan.

Both sides struggled to break the game open thanks to the immense pressure around the stoppages.

However, the Bulldogs were able to strike back late with two quick goals to send the Panthers into the first break facing a 1.1 (7) to 2.0 (12) deficit.

The second quarter saw much of the same as the first, with immense pressure being put around the stoppages.

South found some relief through Hannah Munyard, who was able to open the game up midway through the quarter with her signature run and carry but the Central defence continued to hold firm.

As one of the Panthers best performers of the day, Nikki Gore was busy all around the ground and had to deal with several hard hits including a crunching tackle midway through the second quarter which saw a Central player concussed during the same contest, forcing her to be stretchered off the field.

This same contest saw the dangerous Gore rewarded with a free, which allowed the Panthers to rebound out of defence.

The ball eventually fell into the hands of Tahlia Meyer who broke the game open with a run through the middle.

This end to end play was then finished off nicely by the second-gamer Gypsy Schirmer, whose kick sailed through to give the Panthers a narrow 2.2 (14) to 2.0 (12) lead at the main break.

The third term saw South Adelaide come close to extending the lead on several occasions but to no avail.

But while they could not score up-forward, the Panthers' defence, which was spearheaded by Lisa Whiteley, continued to hold firm.

Whiteley's round six efforts would see her get named as the best on ground for the Panthers.

South Adelaide's sole goal of the third turn came through Teah Charlton, whose strong second-chance grab dead in front of goal allowed the Panthers to increase their lead to 3.3 (21) to 3.3 (13) at the final break.

The tall duo of Indy Tahau and Brianna Wedding continued to be impressive for the Panthers as the side began to take control of the match during the final term.

Following repeated inside 50s, Sheena Peters was able to gain possession out of a marking contest and kick truly to hand the Panthers their first goal of the fourth quarter.

Campbell was able to follow up just four minutes later with her first of the match as the Panthers began to run away with the win.

The combined efforts of Gore and Campbell, as well as a great smother at half-back by Munyard, made sure that the Panthers lead was too much for the Bulldogs to come back from and the siren would eventually sound to hand South a 5.6 (36) to 3.2 (20) win.

The second placed Panthers now face the third placed Bloods at Hisense Stadium on Saturday July 11, from 11am.

MRS Property Reserves Match Report

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Round 2 - Adelaide Oval - 5/7/20

South Adelaide 3.1 5.2 7.4  14.8  92
Glenelg 4.1  11.5 14.7 15.7 97

Goals: Sampson 3, Bogle, Fitt, Overall, Wilkinson 2, Dumesny, Kappler, Whittlesea
Best: Broadbent, Sampson, Summerton, Haines
Injuries: Nil

A spirited South Adelaide fight-back falls just one goal shy of an outstanding last quarter comeback as the Panthers lose to the reigning premiers Glenelg by five points at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

Trailing by 45 points at the final break, the Panthers fought back and doubled their score but were beaten by the final siren, which sounded to give South a 14.8 (92) to 15.7 (97) defeat their first loss of 2020 and their first loss against Glenelg since 2018.

The reigning premiers started the better out of the two sides, as the Tigers booted two unanswered goals before Hayden Sampson (17 disposals) could reply with the Panthers' first goal of the match.

A long bomb by Liam Fitt only four minutes later saw South Adelaide cut the deficit to just single digits.

The Tigers came close to extending the lead on several occasions and would have if it were not for a diving intercept mark by Tom Highmore (15 disposals) as well as a desperate smother by Matthew Broadbent (19 disposals).

However, Glenelg were eventually able to breakthrough with two more unanswered goals before the Panthers were able to respond to via a goal by Sam Overall.

Both sides had equal opportunities with 12 inside 50s a piece during the opening quarter and the Panthers came close from going end to end to even the scores but unfortunately the siren bet them and sent them into the first break facing a narrow 3.1 (19) to 4.1 (25) deficit.

Coming out after the first break, the Panthers struggled to find any momentum and suffered from several costly frees and turnovers which saw Glenelg boot four unanswered goals in just the first eight minutes.

Trailing by five goals, the Panthers found some relief through Luke Bogle (six tackles) whose clever dodge allowed him to take a clear shot at goal.

Moments later an intercept by Broadbent allowed Tom Whittlesea to boot his first of the game.

Broadbent followed up a few minutes later with another intercept and a thumping kick inside South's forward 50 however, it was seen as a free kick and Glenelg regained possession.

The dying stages of the first half saw South Adelaide turn the pressure up with several inside 50s but all were wasted due to either misreading the ball in flight or because of costly frees.

Heading into the main break it was clear that the Panthers had plenty of work to do as they trailed 5.2 (32) to 11.5 (71).

With two quarters left to play, it was the Panthers who struck first during the third quarter through a goal by Eamon Wilkinson.

But the Panthers were not able to capitalise on the early momentum, as Glenelg once again booted two unanswered goals.

South Adelaide were able to steady thanks to a late goal by the second-gamer Zach Dumesny (15 disposals) and the Panthers continued to enjoy repeated forward 50 entries but similar to the second quarter, they unfortunately failed to reflect it on the scoreboard.

Despite having four more inside 50s, the Panthers faced a very ugly 7.4 (46) to 14.7 (91) deficit at the final break.

With plenty of work to do in the final term the Panthers again struck first through a thumping goal by Fitt.

Sampson then followed up just a minute later with his second of the match.

The Panthers began to make the most of their newfound momentum and began putting Glenelg's defence under immense pressure.

In the space of just two minutes both Wilkinson and Bogle booted their second goals of the match.

But it looked as if any chance of a South Adelaide comeback was gone as a costly fumble allowed Partington to boot his third of the match and steady the Tigers.

With Jake Summerton continuing to stand strong down back along with Joe Haines and Tyson Brown who were providing the Panthers with plenty of rebounding potential the Panthers made one last gutsy fight back.

With 19 minutes played, Overall booted his second goal of the match while Jaidan Kappler (14 disposals) was able to sneak down and boot his first of the day.

Joel Cross (24 disposals) and Cam McGree continued to fight desperately around the stoppages then a rebound by Haines allowed Sampson to run in and narrowly boot his third of the day to cut the Tigers lead to just a single goal.

With both teams fighting hard and visibly tired, the Panthers came close to levelling to scores but only managed a behind and the Tigers were just able to hold on to give South their first loss of the season.

However, the gutsy fight back means that the loss had a minimal effect on the Panthers' percentage, which sees the side still sit in a finals position.
