BETTA Teams Selection: Round 7 vs Glenelg

The Panthers return to Flinders University Stadium for a mouth-watering clash against Glenelg.

Fresh off the State Game bye, the Panthers eye off the undefeated Glenelg in what is the SANFL Game of the Week.

Both teams will be also playing for the Carey-Darley Cup which honours the great rivalry and the legacies of club and South Australian icons Peter Carey and Peter Darley.

Both men were premiership players, team captains, best and fairest winners and ruckman for their respective clubs, whose careers also briefly intersected in the early 1970s.

To go with the honour of the Carey-Darley Cup, the played judged best on ground will be awarded the John Schneebichler Medal, which was established last year. 

John Schneebichler played for the Panthers for 13 seasons from 1975-1987 where he played 234 games, kicked 351 goals and also captained the club from 1985-1987, before he made the move to Glenelg in 1988.

In 2019, John was inducted into the South Adelaide Hall of Fame thanks to his outstanding contribution to the football club. 

The first recipient of the medal was Joel Cross, following an outstanding display against the Bays in Round 9 last year, in which he collected a total of 25 disposals, eight clearances and three goals

Meanwhile, the Panthers name a extended squad of 27 for Sundays contest. 

Into the squad comes Luke Bogle, Damon Freitag, Jesse McKinnon, Fraser Turner and Daniel Nobes.

South Adelaide vs West Adelaide
Round 11 - Flinders Univeristy Stadium - 15/05/2021

South Adelaide1.01.02.15.333
West Adelaide 1.2 2.4 5.4 5.4 34

Goals: Hooper 2, Hickey, Kirk, Schirmer
Best: Campbell, Whiteley, R. Moon, Charlton, McKinnon, Hooper

Lost the battle but won the war: a gutsy fightback by South Adelaide sees the Panthers make their fourth consecutive finals campaign despite going down to West Adelaide by a point at Flinders University Stadium.

The Panthers, who were trailing by 21 points at the final change, managed to more than double their score during the final term; but they ultimately fell just short of snatching glory, 5.3 (33) to 5.4 (34).

However, this smallest of margins meant it had a minimal effect on the Panthers' percentage, which was the deciding factor between who made finals between them and last year's reigning premiers.

Backing up last week's performance was Nicole Campbell, who finished with a team-high 21 touches and a game-high nine marks. Also impressive was premiership Panther Lisa Whiteley, and Goolwa recruit, Renee Moon.

It was one of the most dramatic endings to a SANFLW minor season since the competition's inception; with North Adelaide, South Adelaide, and West Adelaide all vying for the remaining two finals spots.

One could not help but draw parallels to the 2019 season, when the Panthers defeated West Adelaide during the final minor round game which saw the Bloods lose their finals spot to Glenelg and this only become more relevant after the Panthers fast start.

During the opening minutes, Gypsy Schirmer was able to use her signature pace to help the Panthers rebound off half back. This fast ball movement put West Adelaide's defence under the pump, which Jorja Hooper capitalised on with the first goal of the match.

South Adelaide continued to push in an attempt to increase this early lead, but the side struggled to get a decent look inside 50 as the Bloods begun to bring the pressure.

After many minutes of attacking, the anti-density rule cost the Panthers plenty of meterage. Yet, after many attempts, the Bloods wayward kicking saw them kick two behinds in as many minutes. That was until Elsegood found the middle of the sticks for the Bloods first of the match which swept the lead out from under the Panthers.

During the dying minutes of the opening term, a soaring intercept mark at half forward by Moon allowed the Panthers to have a few more minutes of possession up forward but still the Bloods defence held firm till the quarter time siren.

Trailing by just two points, the second term brought flashbacks to the Panther-Bloods clash at Adelaide Oval earlier this season, in which the Panthers struggled all day under West's immense pressure.

And it was this pressure that the Bloods brought back during the second quarter.

Once again, some wayward kicking helped the Panthers as the Bloods scored just 1.2 (8) during the second term. But since the Panthers went scoreless during the second quarter, they entered the main break facing a 1.0 (6) to 2.4 (16) deficit.

The Bloods looked to open the scoring early into the third term, but a strong mark by Brianna Wedding helped the Panthers rebound. Then, after some clever play by Jess Kirk, Campbell was able to send it over the pack to Jordann Hickey, who went back and drilled a much-needed goal.

However, from here it was all the visitors; with the Panthers struggling to contain AFLW listed Crow, Ailish Considine. Within the final eight minutes of the third term, the Bloods slotted three goals to hand the Panthers a 21-point deficit at the final change.

With everything to play for during the final term, the Panthers mounted a seemingly impossible comeback.

Kirk got things going with a strong mark and an impressive goal from a tough angle. Minutes later, Hooper followed suit with her second major of the match. The Panthers managed to massively swing the momentum into their favour, but with the side still trailing by eight points it looked too little too late.

That was until Schirmer managed to steady and get a kick away despite numerous opponents around herand suddenly the Panthers were one straight kick away from snagging the win.

A behind further closed the gap, but with just three minutes left the Bloods were able to string together several uncontested marks to waste precious time. That was until they broke the anti-density rule with just 20 seconds left.

However, with plenty of pressure and just seconds left; the wayward kick inside 50 was marked by the Bloods and the siren would sound to signal the narrow loss, 5.3 (33) to 5.4 (34).

While Sturt managed to mount a mini fightback of their own against North Adelaide, the Panthers comeback, despite not getting the win, was enough to see them claim a finals position.

BETTA Team Selection: SANFLW Round 11 vs West Adelaide

BETTA Team Selection: SANFLW Round 11 vs West Adelaide

South Adelaide face West Adelaide for a spot in the major round. 

After accounting for the Double Blues in convincing fashion last week, the Panther Women face West Adelaide is a huge clash at Flinders University Stadium. 

The Panthers have their destiny in their own hands, with a win locking in their fourth consecutive finals appearance, while West Adelaide are also playing for their season.

The scenario is this, the Panthers win and they play finals, if West win it would depend on how much by and it would also depend on the result between North Adelaide and Sturt.

A North win would mean it would come down to percentage between the Panthers and Roosters, should West Adelaide win.

While an upset win from Sturt would also be in the Panthers favour. 

Moving on from the what if, the Panthers name one confirmed change with Hannah Munyard being ruled out with a arm injury, while Tahlia Meyer, who played against the Eagles in round 7, comes in for her second game since the end of the St.Kilda season.

Last time the Panthers faced West Adelaide was in round 6 at Adelaide Oval, where the Bloods had their first win over South Adelaide since the Panthers joined in 2018. 

The huge game kicks off from midday on Saturday afternoon at Flinders University Stadium.

South Adelaide vs Eagles
Round 6 - Maughan Thiem Kia Oval - 8/05/21

South Adelaide5.37.412.515.999
Woodville-West Torrens 2.3 8.6 11.10 13.13 91

Goals: Tarca 4, Gibbs, Schwarz 2, Fitt, Horne, O'Neill, Roberts, Rose, Skinner, Wilkinson
Best: O'Neill, Gibbs, Kappler, Broadbent, Tarca, Cailotto

Plenty of grit and determination was on display during South Adelaide's eight-point win over the reigning premiers at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval on Saturday.

The hotly contested match came down to the wire, but it was the Panthers who managed to break the deadlock during the final term before valiantly defending their lead to claim a hard-fought win, 15.9 (99) to 13.13 (91).

The last time the Panthers defeated the Eagles at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval was during Round 18, 2018. On that day, Victor Harbor product Nathan Krueger kicked three goals to help South get up by a goal. Fast forward to 2021, and it was the Encounter Bay product Jake Tarca who stepped up with four straight goals.

After suffering their first loss of the season the previous week, the Panthers had to face off against the Eagles at Eagles, with the small oval dimensions making it one of the hardest travels in the SANFL.

Yet South Adelaide started out as the livelier one of the two sides, but after several attempts the Panthers could only muster behinds. This was until Bryce Gibbs collected the ball from a throw-in and, with an outside of the boot snap, managed to kick the first of the day.

The home side replied with two quick goals, but the Panthers were able to respond after Mitch O'Neill managed to intercept an Eagles pass at half forward, before kicking truly from beyond the arc.

This was the lift the side needed, as the corresponding clearance saw South clear and hit up Liam Fitt, who celebrated his return from injury with a goal.

Turning back the clock once again was Joel Cross, who caught Stengle holding the ball before hitting up Jason Horne whose beautiful kick soared through for a goal to increase the Panthers lead to double digits.

In the dying stages of the opening term, the Panthers managed to rebound out of defence with blistering pace, and Eamon Wilkinson's dribbling pass across goal to Tarca, allowed him to quickly snap his first of many for the day.

Holding a 5.3 (33) to 2.3 (15) lead at the first break, the Panthers weren't able to build the buffer any further as former Central District pair, Troy Menzel and Dan Menzel, combined for five goals during the second term.

The Panthers found some relief from Matt Rose, whose captain contribution gave the side a much-needed goal midway through the term but the Eagles continued to threaten to break the game open.

A half-volley pass allowed Menzel to go back and drill a goal during the dying stages of the half, which handed the Panthers a 7.4 (46) to 8.6 (54) deficit at halftime.

Yet the side showed plenty of grit and strength after halftime as they begun to grind down the reigning premiers and it all started with a thumping goal from Gibbs.

From here, it was a shootout between the two sides, with Skinner adding his first of the day, but not before the Poole was able to reply for the Eagles.

The Panthers desperately needed a goal to help break the deadlock, and they found their answer in the form of the 17-year-old debutant from Langhorne Creek, Matty Roberts. His quick-thinking snap while being amongst a pack of opponents was a momentum swinger, as Tarca followed up minutes later to hand the Panthers back-to-back goals for the first time since the first term.

While they were potent on the offensive end, the Panthers backline continued to flex their muscle, with Matthew Broadbent along with the 100 gamer Ben Haren, helping to stop the Eagles from replying with a late goal.

After some valiant defending, the 31-minute quarter came to an end handing the Panthers a 12.5 (77) to 11.10 (76) lead at the final break.

A harsh free during the final term allowed the Eagles to take the lead. The Panthers were able to stay composed and not panic, and it paid off as Nic Schwarz kicked a thumping goal to retake the lead for the blue and white.

Showing their endurance, South Adelaide continued to put forward pressure on the Eagles. Then, after juggling the ball, Wilkinson was able to slap it onto his boot for a much-needed goal to give South some breathing space.

Minutes later, Schwarz squandered a shot at goal, but was able to regain possession only seconds later and this time he quickly kicked truly to increase the lead to 15 points.

With fourteen minutes left to play, the Panthers managed to hold the Eagles to just one goal allowing the blue and white to hold on and claim an impressive 15.9 (99) to 13.13 (91) win.

In a game with many contributors, it was hard to pick any standouts, yet O'Neill certainly made himself known with 22 touches and 8 tackles, while Gibbs finished with 21 disposals, 11 tackles and two goals. Broadbent also showed what the Panthers missed last week, as he collected a game-high 28 touches and 7 marks.

The Panthers will enjoy a well-earned weekend off before returning home for the game of the season so far. As South Adelaide will clash with Glenelg on Sunday, 23 May, from 2:10pm.

South Adelaide vs Sturt
Round 10 - Prospect Oval - 8/05/2021

South Adelaide2.35.67.69.660
Sturt 1.0 1.0 1.0 2.1 13

Goals: Hickey 3, Hooper, Campbell 2, Flanagan-Sjoberg, Kirk
Best: Campbell, McKinnon, Whiteley, Hickey, Smith, Kirk

A strong four-quarter display results in South Adelaide's biggest win of the season as they defeat Sturt by 47 points at Prospect Oval on Saturday.

It was a game of firsts for the Panthers, with the side playing at Prospect Oval for the first time and celebrating Jaslynne Smith's half century making her the first Panther to reach the milestone.

And they celebrated this milestone in style, with the Panthers averaging at least two goals a quarter while on their way to an impressive, 9.6 (60) to 2.1 (13) win.

With finals on the line, the Panthers pushed for the opening goal but within the first two opening minutes but could only muster two behinds.

Yet this forward pressure eventually paid off, with the side forcing a turnover which allowed Sophia Flanagan-Sjoberg to go back and, mirroring her efforts from last week, drill a difficult shot from the boundary.

From the next centre bounce, the Double Blues were able to clear and record their first inside 50 of the match; but nothing came of this as Tiffany Copley took a strong overhead mark to intercept.

From her interception, the Panthers were able to rebound and eventually, they managed to hit up the Jordann Hickey, who continued to embrace her new colours with her first major of the day.

The Double Blues pushed for their first of the day midway through the term, but Gypsy Schirmer's pace was able to ease some of the pressure as she burst through the centre of the ground with a run and carry.

Eventually the heroics of the backline came to an end, as Alex Ballard was able to kick the Double Blues first of the match after eleven minutes of play.

With just thirty seconds left till halftime, the Double Blues rebounded out of defence and managed to go end to end, but Renee Moon was able to corral her opponent till the siren sounded to hand the Panthers a promising 2.3 (15) to 1.0 (6) lead at the first break.

Within the first minute of the second term, Teah Charlton was able to clear the ball and hit up Jorja Hooper, who went back and drilled her first of the day.

From here, the Panthers really begun to take control of the match.

Hickey kicked truly with her second goal of the game. Then, after an intercept mark at half forward by Lisa Whiteley, Hooper was able to follow suit with her second goal of the quarter.

The Hooper-Hickey duo helped the Panthers to a 5.6 (36) to 1.0 (6) lead at halftime, and while there was still a half left to play there were plenty of positives for the Panthers.

For one, they were winning the inside 50s count 14 to 6, which also meant the side had scored 78 per cent of the time they went forward. Likewise, the last time the Panthers met the Double Blues, the side only scored 25 for the match meaning their halftime was already better.

Coming out after the main break, it was Nicole Campbell who got things going for the Panthers as she kicked truly while on the run.

Continuing her streak of strong second-half performances, Tahlita Buethke continued to provide ball-movement around the stoppages and Sturt must've been aware of this as a late hit on Buethke allowed South with a down the ground free, which Hickey made them pay for with a great goal.

As the great weather begun to subside and clouds took its place the Panthers, who held a seven-goal lead at the final chance, came home during the final term with wind at their backs.

And it was Campbell who made the most of this, as she kicked a thumping goal to help the side reply to Sturt's goal which was the Double Blues first goal in 49 minutes of play.

After going 49 minutes without having a goal kicked against them, the Panthers backline didn't let this goal ruin their strong efforts, with Smith showing what 50 games of experience looks like with several interceptions.

At the offensive end, Jess Kirk was able to read the ball beautifully and take a diving mark, which she finished perfectly with a strong goal that stretched the final margin to 9.6 (60) to 2.1 (13).

The match was arguably the Panthers best of the season, as the side had even contributors across the board. Yet special mentions must go to Cheyenne Hammond, who finished with 16 touches and 4 tackles, and Montana McKinnon who wracked up 31 hit-outs.

South Adelaide will look to keep this winning form when they face off against West Adelaide for the final minor season game. Which will take place at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, 15 May, from 12:00pm.

Goals: Nobes 3, Bogle 2, Freitag, McKinnon
Best: Bogle, Turner, Sawford, McCreery, Elsworthy, Douglass

It was a tale of two halves, and it was a costly second half that saw South Adelaide Reserves suffer a 34-point loss against the Eagles at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval on Saturday.

Four weeks is a long time in football; and the Panthers proved that to an extent. Facing off against the Eagles at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval for the second time in a month, the Panthers looked a drastically different side.

After a fast start the Panthers entered the main break trailing by just one point. This was a far cry from their Round Three clash against the Eagles which saw that halftime deficit sit at 50 points.

However, the Panthers weren't able to keep the pressure up as the home side wrestled the game away from South Adelaide before kicking away to win, 7.5 (47) to 12.9 (81).

Fraser Turner made his presence felt after returning to the Reserves, with the Tassie product collecting 34 disposals and 11 marks. Also impressive was Ben Sawford, who finished with 31 disposals and 10 clearances.

Coming into the game off the back of their first win this season, the Panthers looked lively early as Daniel Nobes, Jesse McKinnon and Damon Freitag combined for three goals within the opening thirteen minutes.

Nobes would continue to be dangerous, with the Christies Beach product booting two more majors during the second term which was the Panthers only goals for the second term.

With just a point separating the bottom-placed Panthers from the second placed Eagles, it looked as if it was an upset in the making. But this wasn't to be, as the home side kicked three unanswered goals during the third term.

The Panthers wouldn't respond until the final term when Luke Bogle kicked two goals in just three minutes, but from here it was all the Eagles.

After such a promising start, the Eagles managed to kick seven goals during the second half to the Panthers two.

South Adelaide Reserves will look to bounce back after the bye, when they face off against Glenelg at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday, 23 May, from 11:30am.

Best: Verrall, Mitton, Draper, Hayes, Birt, Brown

An evenly matched contest at Flinders University Stadium sees South Adelaide Under-18s fall agonisingly short of West Adelaide by one point on Saturday.

The Panthers were able to match it with the second-placed Bloods throughout the day, with Westies twenty-one-point lead midway through the second term being the biggest lead of the day.

As suspected, the evenly matched contest came down to the wire but unfortunately, it wasn't in the Panthers favour as they fell to the smallest of margins, 8.5 (53) to 8.6 (54).

With just sixty seconds left on the clock and with the scores tied, West Adelaide managed to get the ball deep within their forward line but the Panthers were able to desperately clear without conceding a score.

This was only momentarily, as the Bloods intercepted and, with just twenty seconds left, were able to score a behind to take the lead.

With time well against the Panthers, they pushed for one last game-winning goal and to their credit they managed to get the ball to within their forward half but this is as far as they got as the siren sounded.

In any close game, it is easy to dissect the final few minutes to see how it was lost. But footy is played over four quarters, and there were many small moments throughout the day that ultimately saw the Panthers fall just one point shy. 

As for positives, the Panthers were able to fightback and even the scores at three quarter time after facing a halftime deficit of fifteen points.

Finishing with 27 disposals and a goal, Isaac Birt was also one of the standouts for the Panthers, as was Arlo Draper who finished with 27 touches and 9 clearances. 

Hugo Hoeck also made his presence felt on the scoreboard as he added two goals to his tally.

South Adelaide Under-18s will now have a weekend off to recover and reflect, then they will look to bounce back when they face off against Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday, 22 May, from 11:30am.
