The Eagles enjoyed first use of the ball, winning the hit outs with 45 to Souths 35 and the clearances with 41 to Souths 38.

However, South Adelaide's defence stood firm despite the immense pressure with the Eagles finishing with 53 inside 50s to Souths 39.

While Alex Cailotto did his best to help in the ruck, finishing with 12 hit outs and ten disposals.

Coming out after halftime, Liam Fitt (12 disposals and three marks) goaled within the first two minutes to give the Panthers the lead.

The game was a struggle between two strong midfields, with the Panthers recording 85 tackles to the Eagles 61.

However, the Eagles began to take hold of the game, kicking the next five goals to finish of the third quarter and to give the Panthers a 25-point deficit at the final break.

Starting the final quarter, Fitt once again scored within the first two minutes but the Eagles responded with three goals through Sharrad, Goldsworthy and Johnansen to hand the Panthers a 42-point loss.

Mark Noble was impressive for the Panthers, collecting 20 disposals, five marks and eight clearances and so was Matt Rose with 14 disposals, five marks and six tackles.

Betta Teams: SANFL Round 8 - South Adelaide @ Woodville-West Torrens
 

South Adelaide are back in action after the bye as they come up against the Eagles on Saturday on Oval Avenue.

Playing their second game in four weeks, the Panthers are looking to capture the form which helped them get past the Roosters a fortnight ago.

South Adelaide now enter life without ruckman Michael Knoll, who was given an opportunity by the Swans in the mid-season draft.

Lee Hoey, who has played his role seamlessly since his debut against Sturt in round 5, will miss this week due to a hamstring complaint. 

Blackwood/South Adelaide Talent Pathway product Luke Bogle and former Adelaide Crows development player James Loneragan (18 SANFL games for the Crows) have been named in the squad of 22, that must be trimmed by one before the bounce, making it 9 debutants so for this year. 

The boys are back in action on Saturday afternoon with the reserves kicking off at midday, followed by League at 2:40pm.

Michael Knoll selected at pick 4 in the mid-season draft

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 27 May 2019
Michael Knoll selected at pick 4 in the mid-season draft

South Adelaide Ruck Michael Knoll will get an opportunity at the Sydney Swans as part of the mid-season draft.

Knoll, who joined the Panthers from Box Hill earlier this year, has been handed an AFL opportunity from the Swans as part of the mid-season draft.

Taken at pick 4, Knoll is now the second player the Panthers have lost to the Swans in a matter of 2 months, with Hayden McLean also being picked up by the Swans on the brink of the season in March as part of the pre-season supplemental selection period.

South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer Neill Sharpe said it was a bittersweet moment for the club to see Knoll make his way to New South Wales.

"As an individual we are extremely pleased to see Michael realise his dream of making an AFL list," said Mr Sharpe.

"During his short time with South Adelaide Michael showcased that he is an outstanding person with many qualities on and off the field that would make any club happy to have him."

"It is however very disappointing for our club to lose one of our key recruits mid way through the season."

Southern Volkswagen Women's Match Report

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Grand Final - ACH Group Stadium - 26/05/19

South Adelaide 1.0 3.3 4.5 4.7 31
North Adelaide 0.0 1.0 1.2 1.3 9


Goals: Tahau 2, Page, Charlton
Best: Tahau, Smith, McKinnon, Gore, Cavouras, Gryczewski
Injuries: Nil

South Adelaide's senior women make history on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon by becoming the first team in the SANFLW to win back to back premierships. 

The 22-point victory was built on the back of a strong team effort with all the players contributing in some way despite the tough conditions and tops off a great season by South Adelaide.

The Panthers worked tirelessly at both ends of the ground, wracking up 43 inside 50s to 21 while also holding North Adelaide to just one goal.

Young gun Indy Tahau was awarded the Best on Ground medal following an impressive performance which saw her gather 20 disposals, five tackles, six inside 50s and two goals.

Despite having plenty of the ball in the first quarter, the wet conditions made it hard for the Panthers to reflect it on the scoreboard.

However, a strong link up play through the centre by Munyard, Haussen, and Browne before being finished off by Tamara Page (six disposals) gave South the first goal of the game in the final minute of the quarter.

Just thirty seconds into the second quarter, Tahau shrugged a tackle and evaded another player before kicking truly on the run from roughly 40m out to give South a two-goal lead.

Five minutes later, North Adelaide's Lauren Daniel would kick Norths first and only goal for the match.

Despite the tough conditions, Lauren Buchanan (three clearances), Nicole Campbell (four inside 50s) and Emily Brockhurst (three inside 50s) all did their best to try and create chances up forward.

Meanwhile, Alana Browne was busy around the ground, collecting three marks and five disposals and so was Elyse Haussen with seven disposals and three tackles.

With just thirty seconds left until halftime, Tahau plucked the ball from the ruck and put it straight on her boot to give South Adelaide a 3.3 (21) to 1.0 (6) lead at the main break.

Both teams created immense pressure around the ball, with the two sides combining for 121 tackles.

Fast paced pair Hannah Munyard (14 disposals) and last years Best on Ground medalist Cheyenne Hammond (12 disposals) continued to provide pace for the Panthers.

Meanwhile, Montana McKinnon was influential in the ruck, gathering 18 hit outs while also having a presence in the contests with six marks.

Tiffany Copley was also impressive for the Panthers with ten disposals and three marks while also creating chances with two clearances and two inside 50s.

The Panthers continued their streak of last-minute goals with a clever kick off the ground by Teah Charlton (18 disposals, five tackles and four marks) to give South a 4.5 (29) to 1.3 (9) lead at the final break.

The final quarter saw the Panthers slow the game down while also holding the Roosters to just a point, with the rain pouring down the siren sounded to give South Adelaide their second premiership in a row.

Credit must be given to Souths defense, who managed to hold North to just one goal and to only three points after half time.

Jaslynne Smith finished off her great year with another reliable performance down back, collecting 11 disposals and three marks.

While Sam Pratt (eight disposals and four tackles), Sarah Wright (seven disposals and two tackles) and Elke Jarvis (seven disposals and two tackles) continued to disrupt the oppositions plays and proved to be healthy additions to the side this season.

Emma Gryczewski (five disposals) also played strong down back against Norths dangerous forwards.

Nikki Gore (16 disposals, 10 tackles, and three clearances) and Czenya Cavouras (22 disposals, five tackles and four clearances) were once again outstanding in the midfield.

While up forward, South created immense pressure through Madison Bennett who finished a standout season with four tackles and soccer convert Jess Kirk who finished with three tackles.

The win came from a strong team effort, with contributions coming from all around the ground on the back of a great season for the Panthers.

The premiership is the ultimate award for the team, following strong performances throughout the season and credit must be given to all the players, coaches and staff who all combined to make history for South Adelaide.
