BETTA Teams Selection: Round 4 vs Sturt

BETTA Teams Selection: Round 4 vs Sturt

Top of the table Panthers take on the Double Blues in an ANZAC round blockbuster. 

On a weekend where Australians remember and reflect on those who made the ultimate sacrifice, the Panthers will one again present the Frank Barry Medal

Introduced for the ANZAC Round clash against Sturt in 2019, The Frank Barry Medal will be presented to the South Adelaide player whose conduct and play during the game best demonstrates the qualities of skill, courage in adversity, self-sacrifice, team work and fair play that befit the Anzac Spirit.

The first recipient of the medal was captain Matt Rose, who earned the medal in 2019. 

The Medal is named after South Adelaide's first Magarey Medallist, Frank "Dinky" Barry, who was awarded South Australian football's highest individual honour as the competition's 'fairest and most brilliant player' in 1915.

A brilliant rover, he was known for his strong mark, cool and calm approach, precision with hand and foot, and his love to run and baulk.

Barry went on to serve in World War I, embarking with the First AIF to serve in France.

He fought in the horrific conditions and carnage of the Western Front and achieved the rank of second lieutenant. During this time Barry contracted trench foot, requiring periods of time in hospital, and despite surviving the war would never return to playing football due to complications with his foot.

The medal will be presented at post-match presentations held inside of Jimmy Deane's Bistro from approx. 6:30pm on Saturday night, an event everyone is welcome to attend. 

Meanwhile, the Panthers turn their attention to Sturt, who are coming off a strong win over West Adelaide last week. 

The Panthers will make one confirmed change, with young gun Jason Horne coming out due to AFL Academy commitments.

This will open the door for a possible return of key forward Sam Overall, who has recovered from injury.

Ben Heaslip also joins the extended squad after being ruled out late last week due to a little niggle.

Jesse McKinnon and Fraser Turner also join the extended squad of 25.

Former Crow and Blue Bryce Gibbs has become the third Panther in as many weeks to take home the Channel 7 Goal of the Week with this classy sealer against the Magpies last week. 

The South Adelaide Reserves moved on quickly from last weeks match against the Eagles. 

After a positive week on the track, the Reserves are looking to notch up the first win for 2021. 

Former Tiger Ben Sawford returns from injury that has kept him sidelined for the start of 2021. 

The action kicks off from 9:50am with the South Adelaide Under-18s, followed by the Reserves at 12:25pm and League at 3:05pm, as the Channel 7 Match of the Round.

Under-16 Match Report: Semi Final 1 vs North Adelaide

Under-16 Match Report: Semi Final 1 vs North Adelaide

Under-16 Match Report

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Semi Final 1 - Hisense Stadium - 18/04/2021

South Adelaide 3.4 9.5 13.10 16.11 107
North Adelaide 3.0 6.1 9.2 12.3 75

Goals: Delean 7, Hargrave 4, Barrett, Draper, Duke
Best: Delean, Draper, Wheaton, Schirmer, Daris, Hargrave

South Adelaide's Under-16s are into the grand final after beating North Adelaide in the Semi-Final on Sunday.

After securing a finals berth with a win over North Adelaide last Saturday we would front up this week in a knockout final. 

A nailbiting one point loss mid week to the Eagles had been just enough to still secure top spot and our opponent would again be North after they beat Norwood to secure their finals position.

The boys were really focused and were keen to get off to a strong start after being jumped early the week before. 

Tom Schirmer gave us first use and when Phoenix Hargrave slotted a left foot snap 90 seconds in the boys were off to flier. Further goals for the quarter to Jack Delean and Benny Barrett had us in a good position but North's fast ball movement saw them claw back late to trail by 4 points at the first change.

The second quarter started like the first with an early Hargrave goal. Tom Wheaton and Jace Daris were giving strong effort through the middle and when Schirmer kicked his first we had a 22 point buffer.

North would continue to fight though and a couple of their own goals held them in striking distance. 

At half time the boys felt they were on top and if we stuck to our game and took our chances it would fall our way. 

The first 10 minutes of the third we really stepped up our pressure and it started to reflect on the scoreboard. Skipper Wheaton drifted forward mid quarter to kick a major and when Delean kicked his 3rd of the quarter we were out to a 42 point margin. 

Our defence was holding up well with Seb Hoeck finding some ball and Nick Schroder standing tall in the air. North would not give in though with 4 unanswered goals , 2 either side of 3 quarter time giving them hope. 

The boys dug in hard though to fight it out and regain some control; only allow North 1 more late quarter goal while kicking 3 of our own to seal a hard fought 32 point win and earn a spot in the grand final.

Jack Delean kicked 7 majors for the day while Phoenix Hargrave finished his work well for 4 of his own. Jace Daris laid 10 tackles and he had 17 touches in the midfield, as well as Wheaton continuing his consistent year winning 24 possessions to go with a goal.

We look forward to enjoying the week and facing off against Glenelg in Sunday's decider, at Flinders University Stadium from 11am.

MRS Property Reserves Match Report

South Adelaide vs Eagles
Round 3 - Flinders University Stadium - 17/04/21

South Adelaide 0.1 3.2 6.3 8.4 52
Eagles 4.4 11.4 15.8 18.11 119

Goals: Flett 3, Spacie, Tucker 2, Kappler
Best: Kraemer, McKinnon

Saturday was a dismal day for the South Adelaide Reserves as they suffered a 67-point defeat at the hands of the reigning premiers at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval.

Despite having to pay to watch the Reserves match, the Panthers faithful didn't receive their moneys worth as the side struggled to find any momentum against a classy Eagles outfit, ultimately falling to a bitter 8.4 (52) to 18.11 (119) defeat.

Nicholas Kraemer was the Panthers best performer, finishing with 20 disposals, 9 clearances and 5 tackles. Fraser Turner also continued his strong start in the blue and white by collecting 24 touches.

It was the latest in a string of tough matches for the Panthers who, after facing the 2019 premiers and last year's runner-up during the first two rounds, now had to face off against the reigning premiers.

Within the first fifteen minutes there were worrying signs for South Adelaide, as the Panthers managed just four inside 50s compared to the Eagles ten, and were already trailing, 0.1 (1) to 3.1 (19).

Making his return from injury, Jake McCreery offered some pressure around football which was best shown with a chase-down tackle at half forward during the dying minutes of the opening term. But the Panthers still struggled to score their first major of the match.

South Adelaide would not score their first goal of the match until the seventh minute mark of the second term, when Harry Spacie showed some initiative by kicking the ball off the ground at close range.

However, as would be the theme for most of the match, the Panthers couldn't build any momentum after scoring, and each time the Eagles would clear the ball from the centre and within minutes respond with a goal of their own.

Jack Flett followed suit minutes later by kicking the ball off the deck to score the Panthers second goal of the game, but by this stage the side had conceded 30 inside 50s to 7.

With the Panthers eighth inside 50 of the match, Flett managed to take a strong mark and kick his second of the gamebut this was one of the only good moments from a Panthers perspective.

Ollie Megins, Darnell Tucker and Connor Sampson provided the Panthers with some options through the middle, yet each time the Panthers scored, the Eagles would respond with such ease.

The Eagles scored ten goals off of South Adelaide's turnovers alone, which put massive pressure on the backline which was spearheaded by Jack Elsworthy

The final siren would send to signal the 8.4 (52) to 18.11 (119) defeat, the bottomless Panthers will look to bounce back against Sturt at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, April 24, from 12:45pm.

MRS Property Match Report

South Adelaide vs Port Adelaide
Round 3 - Flinders University Stadium - 17/04/21

South Adelaide 1.2 4.4 8.6 12.9 81
Port Adelaide 2.5 4.7 8.10 10.12 72

Goals: Fitt, Skinner 3, Tarca 2, Biemans, Gibbs
Best: Broadbent, Gibbs, Fitt, Rose, Summerton, Loneragan

The latest chapter from the oldest rivalry in SANFL football sees South Adelaide win an arm wrestle against Port Adelaide by nine points at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The unbeaten Panthers, who trailed at every break, were forced to overcome and withstand an AFL laden Port Magpies outfit to win, 12.9 (81) to 10.12 (72).

South Adelaide was well-supplied by Mathew Broadbent, who finished with 28 touches and 8 marks. Bryce Gibbs was also impressive as he finished with 25 disposals and 6 clearances, as was Mitch O'Neill who collected 22 disposals.

The ladder leading Panthers came into the match with just one change, while the Power Reserves had been bolstered by the addition of Tom Rockliff and Sam Powell-Pepper. 

But despite the AFL talent on offer for Port and the forward talent of the Panthers, the two sides combined for just seven behinds during the first twenty minutes of the opening term.

The first goal of the match came via Port at the twentieth minute mark, at which South Adelaide almost instantly replied to thanks to a goal from Sam Skinner.

Trailing 1.2 (8) to 2.5 (17) at the first change, the Panthers managed to bring the lead to within a kick when Jake Tarca opened the scoring during the second term.

However, this would be the last goal in the blue and whites favour for some time, as the Magpies threatened to run away with the game on the back of two early goals.

Skinner managed to steady the side with his second goal of the game just before stoppage time, while Jake Summerton turned heads and helped the Panthers bring the lead to within striking distance with a rare goal of his own.

This brought the deficit down to 4.4 (28) to 4.7 (31) at halftime, but facing off against thirteen AFL listed players it wasn't going to be easy to brush the Magpies aside and take the lead.

Liam Fitt added to his goal tally with his first of the day after just forty seconds of play, but the Magpies impressive midfield four continued to dictate the play around the centre bounces. 

After repeated Port behinds the Panthers backline, who were well-supplied through Matt Rose and Joe Haines, managed to rebound the ball and it eventually fell into the hands of Hayden Sampson who dodged an opponent before snapping a much-needed goal.

Tarca then marked the ball on the line but it was denied, allowing Port to rebound as well but thankfully they missed the target.

The game was showcasing rebounding football at its best, as following this behind the Panthers once again rebounded and this time Fitt caught an opponent holding the ball which allowed him to go back and drill his second major of the quarter.

However, Port once again threatened to run away with the lead after kicking back-to-back goals.

Ironically however, the AFL Reserves side had a momentary lapse in concentration as their runner came within the 50m arc while Fitt was lining up for goal, allowing him a shot dead in front for his third of the quarter which cut the deficit to 8.6 (54) to 8.10 (58) in the process. 

The final term began with another Port forward entry as the Power Reserves were well-supplied through the middle by Rockliff, who would finish the game with 41 disposals.

Yet this forward entry was cut off by Summerton, and the Panthers rebounded quickly out of defence. The ball would eventually fall into the hands of Tarca, who drilled from a fair way out to give South the lead.

This then resulted in a shoot out between the two rivals, with Port and the Panthers both trading blows throughout the final term. Midway through the term, Skinner kicked his third of the match, but minutes later Port replied to take the lead again.

Then, as had been the theme for most of the night, the Panthers rebounded out of defence as Broadbent, Gibbs and Jason Horne liked up through the middle before hitting up Anthony Biemans who marked with the flight of the ball. 

Showing his composure, Bemo went back and drilled the goal to give the Panthers the lead just minutes before stoppage time.

South Adelaide desperately pushed to get a consecutive goal to ease the arm wrestle, and after a stoppage inside the forward 50, Gibbs collected the ball and snapped a goal to answer the prayers of the Panther faithful.

What followed was extremely tense football, as the Panthers were forced to hold off a relentless Port outfit.

Just as the match entered stoppage time, James Lonergan collected the bouncing ball at half back before kicking a perfect left-footed pass to help clear the pressure.

Then, 25 minutes into the final term, Hayden Sampson chased down an opponent on the wing but extremely stiffly was labelled as hanging on-which allowed Port to go inside 50 and have a shot dead in front.

Luckily, the footy gods must have been smiling on the Panthers as they missed, and the siren would sound just a few stressful minutes later to signal the 12.9 (81) to 10.12 (72) win and prove that, after 145 years, the rivalry is still alive.

South Adelaide will look to continue their winning streak as they face off against Sturt at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, April 24, from 3:05pm.

Round 3 - Flinders University Stadium - 17/04/2021

South Adelaide 4.1 7.4 9.6 14.9 93
Eagles 5.1 11.4 14.10 16.13 109

Goals: Pilmore 4, Cockshell, Draper 2, Brown, Rogers
Best: Roberts, Mitton, Pilmore, Roger, Bottroff, Draper

A final term fightback falls short as the South Adelaide Under-18s suffer a sixteen-point loss against the Eagles at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The Panthers, who were trailing by 34 points at three quarter time, piled on five final-term goals but this wasn't enough to fix the damage that they had suffered throughout the opening three quarters as the side would fall to a 14.9 (93) to 16.13 (109) defeat.

Matthew Roberts led the way for the Panthers with a game-high 37 touches while Bailey Pilmore finished with four goals.

The game would begin as a shootout between the two rivals, as the Eagles and Panthers would combine for nine goals during the opening term. The first of which came via the Eagles to hand the visitors an early lead.

Then Pilmore and Arlo Draper would combine for two goals in three minutes to give South Adelaide the lead for the first time of the match, but this lead would be short-lived.

The visitors booted four goals to two during the latter half of the opening term to take a narrow lead into the first change, 4.1 (25) to 5.1 (31).

Just twenty seconds into the second term, Pilmore evened the scores with his second major of the day but this would prove to be the last Panthers' goal until he followed up with his third at the tenth minute mark.

As was the case with the opening term, the Eagles would out-score the Panthers during the latter half of the second term. The visitors booted three unanswered goals to give the Panthers a 7.4 (46) to 11.4 (70) deficit at the main break.

This second quarter scoring spree would prove to be the difference between the two sides, as the Panthers would go onto narrowly outscore the Eagles in the second half but would ultimately just fall short, 14.9 (93) to 16.13 (109).

But this loss came from no lack of trying from the boys in the blue and white, with five individual players kicking their first goals of the match during the second half.

Likewise, by the time the final siren had sounded, Roberts had collected 37 disposals, 8 tackles and 5 clearances. Luke Mitton finished with 22 touches and 5 clearances, while Cooper Rogers also impressed with 23 disposals and a goal.

The South Adelaide Under-18s will look to bounce back against Central District at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, April 24, from 9:50am.

South Adelaide 1.0 2.0 3.1 5.3 33

Goals: Hooper 2, Buchanan, Cavouras, Meyer 
Best: Cavouras, S.Moon, Meyer, Haylock, Campbell, Copley

A hard-fought South Adelaide fightback sees the third-placed Panthers bounce back with a nine-point win over the Eagles at Woodville Oval on Saturday morning.

Travelling to Maughan Thiem Kia Oval for the first time, the well-rested and reinforced Panthers managed to overcome a three-quarter time deficit to win, 5.3 (33) to 4.0 (24).

Returning from AFLW duties with St Kilda, Tahlia Meyer was instrumental for the Panthers by finishing with 25 disposals and 9 tackles.

Likewise, Czenya Cavouras was also impressed with 26 touches and 6 tackles.

Despite the final result, the match began with a few worrying minutes as the Eagles scored the first major of the day after just a minute of play.

 

After eight minutes of play, a clever dish out of a contest to Cavouras allowed her to kick on the run for the Panthers first major of the match.

This goal seemed to breathe new life into the Panthers who had suffered a bitter defeat during their Round Six clash.

Playing with this newfound confidence, the Panthers continued to push for their second goal of the match and came very close to doing so.

A clever spoil and intercept at half forward by Sophia Flanagan-Sjoberg allowed the side with a decent look inside 50 but the Eagles, who were well-supplied by Kiana Lee, held firm.

However, a momentary lapse in concentration saw Woodville-West Torrens manage to go end to end and score to put the Panthers on the back foot once again.

With just three minutes left until the first break, the Panthers pushed to even the scores and almost did when a chase-down tackle by Cavouras gave the Panthers possession just outside their forward 50.

But South Adelaide were narrowly beaten by the siren and were forced to enter the first break facing a 1.0 (6) to 2.0 (12) deficit.

The arm wrestle continued during the second term as both sides tried to gain a buffer over each other.

First-year Panther Jaimee Millard show signs of her composure at half back as she took on and bet two opponents.

Just two minutes after Millard's defensive action, an intercept mark by Cavouras allowed her to set up the running Meyer, who welcomed her return to the blue and white with an important goal.

Yet by halftime, the Panthers hadn't come any closer to taking the lead nor had the Eagles managed to extend theirs, with just one goal separating the two sides at the main break.

Coming out after halftime and after just four minutes of play, Jorja Hooper celebrated her return to the side by completing a 'seven-point play' to hand the Panthers the lead for the first time.

Finally taking the lead for the first time after 38 minutes of play, the Panthers became determined not to give it up.

Midway through the third term, Meyer showed her signature pace to catch an opponent holding the ball on the wing while Jaslynne Smith took a gutsy mark at halfback to help ease the pressure as the Eagles threatened to retake the lead.

After holding off the Eagles for nine minutes, it looked as if the yellow, blue and green had finally broken through but a desperate last-second tackle by Flanagan-Sjoberg caught her opponent holding the ball in the goal square, stopping a certain goal in the process.

But eventually the Panthers valiant defending let one through, as Zecevic broke through with a goal for the Eagles with only minutes till the final change.

The home side pushed to extend their lead to beyond a kick, but a chase down tackle by Layla Rogers locked the scores at 3.1 (19) to 4.0 (24).

After trailing at every break, the Panthers were provided with decent looks inside their forward 50 from the former skipper, Lauren Buchanan.

One of these entries fell into the hands of Hooper, who kicked truly to hand the Panthers the lead once again.

From attacking to defending, Renee Moon marked her return from injury by chasing down an opponent on the wing to thwart an Eagle rebound.

It was a poetic end to the match. Leading by nine points and with just five minutes left, Campbell dashed through the centre with the ball before sending it over a pack of Eagles to the waiting Buchanan who celebrated her first game back from retirement by running into an open goal to kick the sealer.

Within the final minute, an intercept mark in the centre by Tiffany Copley would all but seal the 5.3 (33) to 4.0 (24) win for the Panthers, one which sees them slingshot to third on the ladder.

The win over the much-improved Eagles was a very strong and hard-fought one, as the Panthers led for just over 20 minutes out of the 68 minutes of game time.

The Panthers will look to continue to build on this momentum when they face off against Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday, April 24, from 4:20pm.
