The South Adelaide U15 girls produced a stunning display; holding Norwood scoreless in their 69-point victory at Thebarton Oval on Tuesday Night.

The Panthers defence and midfield worked tirelessly to deny Norwood any score while the forwards made the most of their opportunities to set up the 0.0 (0) to 10.9 (69) win.

There were many stand outs for the Panthers; with Jess Couch and Emily Smith playing great football and fittingly the two were named first and second best respectively.

Meanwhile, forward duo Kiahni Russell (two goals) and Layla Woods (three goals) were dangerous up forward; with the two combining to kick half the Panthers goals.

South Adelaide also displayed great pace throughout the match; with Ella Besley showcasing her pace right up until the final siren.

Other standouts for the Panthers included Willunga product Carli Perryman and Happy Valley product Jorja Hooper.

Injuries: Nil

A dominant second half performance by South Adelaide's U17s set up the 34-point victory over Norwood at Thebarton Oval on Tuesday night.

Similar to the previous week; South Adelaide allowed the opposition to kick the first two goals of the match. However, the Panthers responded and managed to hold Norwood scoreless in the second half.

"We started off slow, but once the nerves died down and the girls settled into the game, we really started to play our brand of football and got the game back onto our terms" U17s head coach Ryan Skouburg said.

"Very happy with how we're progressing as a team, I think we took big strides in the way we want to move the ball and held structure well. Once again proud of the way the girls responded when tested early" he said.

The signs didn't look good early; as Norwood booted two goals in the first four minutes.

It wasn't until the eleventh minute mark that the quick-thinking Jasmin McIntosh kicked the ball off the ground to get the Panthers first goal of the game.

Heading into the first break trailing by four points; the stand outs in the first quarter was the eventual best on ground Emogen Johnson as well as Stellar Remphrey and All-Australian Teah Charlton.

"After the first quarter everyone kicked up a couple of gears; and the communication and defensive pressure was great" Emogen Johnson said.

Coming out after the first break; Johnson continued her impressive performance; setting up Rayne Rivalland who kicked casually from the pocket to get the Panthers first of second quarter after just three minutes of play.

Happy Valley product Callie Wilson showed her class in the second while Chelsea Kennedy displayed her great pace after missing the previous round.

The Panthers had plenty of the football in the second quarter but failed to make the most of it.

It wasn't until Johnson set up Mcintosh for her second of the game in the dying stages of the quarter that the Panthers began to make a buffer over their opponents.

Heading into the main break with a slight 3.7 (25) to 3.0 (18) lead; the Panthers had plenty of work to do to ensure their victory.

And it was Brooklyn Kraft who answered the call; taking a strong mark before kicking truly to put the Panthers lead up to double digits.

Then Johnson continued her stand out performance by kicking one of the goals of the night.

After creating immense forward pressure, she dived onto the loose ball and somehow, she was able to get up and get a boot to it despite having a numerous number of opponents around her.

Heading into the final break with a 5.8 (38) to 3.0 (18); the Panthers had begun to work brilliantly at both ends of the ground.

Coming out after the final break; Willunga product Lauren Clifton showed her class down back. Also impressive was Christies Beach product Gypsy Schirmer whose actions saw her receive fourth best for the match.

Meanwhile, McLaren's Tahlia Buethke continued her impressive display as she continually got into the thick of the action. Her stand out performance was the best of hers in the blue and white and saw her be named second best for the game.

Late in the final quarter, Rivalland kicked truly from the pocket to get her second goal of the game.

Not long after; Johnson showed her forward pressure again and scooped up the loose ball before running into an open goal to get her second goal of the game.

The siren sounded not long after to give the Panthers the 3.0 (18) to 7.10 (52) win.

The Under-15s and Under-17s Girls take on the Eagles in the final match of the Statewide Super Talent Shield next Tuesday night (September 10) at Alberton Oval (U15 - 5:30pm, U17 - 7:00pm).

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Elimination Final - Maughan Thiem Kia Oval - 31/08/19

South Adelaide 7.3  8.4  12.9  13.10  88
Glenelg 0.0  6.1 7.1 10.3 63


Goals: Oliver 3, Sladojevic, McCreery 2, Riddle, Freitag, Hamilton, Clifton, Roberts Kraemer
Best: Freitag, Kernahan, Kraemer, Oliver, Copley, Dumesny.

South Adelaide Under-18s advance to Adelaide Oval for a Preliminary Final after a fast start set up the win over the Tigers on Saturday morning.

First week of finals, and most of our players are available. That means there some unlucky players.

We had seven changes to the side that won against centrals last weekend.

Into the side came Captain Aaron Douglass, State Under-18 Zac Dumesny, State Under-16 players Jason Horne, Matthew Roberts and Arlo Draper, who were also joined by Beau McCreery and Liam Nye.

Unlucky to come out was Ben Ryan, Brayden Cook, Isaac Birt, Lachlan Banisch, Lachlan Inthavong, Tom Barrett, and Jack Flett.

We once again returned to Woodville Oval in a neutral ground battle, where we have played a lot at in the past 12 months with some success.

For a large part of the match there was a strong breeze to the Southern end. Aaron Douglass won his second coin toss of the year which meant we could take advantage of the wind. 

After missing 3 early opportunities to score, we finished the quarter well kicking seven straight and keeping Glenelg to no score.

In the second quarter, Glenelg had the wind and got on top in the middle which gave them inside 50's and chances at goal.

They converted well kicking 6.1 (37)  to our 1.1 (7) to bring our lead back to 15 points at half time.

After the major break. we again had the breeze, and took some time to get going. However, when we did, we traded goals with Glenelg which kept them in the contest.

It wasn't until just before halfway through the quarter we kicked our second.

We ended up kicking 4.5 (29) for the quarter and could have put the game out of reach, but again our inaccuracy left Glenelg in the game.

We went into the last change 38-points up but Glenelg had the breeze in the last.

The last quarter we were able to maintain possession of the ball and take our time to deny Glenelg opportunity to score.

Our defenders did a great job with Aaron DouglassZac Dumesny and Hayden Kernahan leading the way.

Damon Freitag worked extremely hard after Lachlan Williams went off injured.

Tyler Oliver continued his good form kicking three as a forward, and was tough through the midfield as well.

We managed to tough out a win with some of our players not in their best form.

This week we will need a more consistent performance across the group to beat West Adelaide in the Preliminary Final.

I'm sure our guys will respond with a Grand final spot up for grabs.

South Adelaide vs West Adelaide
Game 1 - Aldi Arena - 27/08/19

South Adelaide 0.0 3.0 3.0 5.2 32
West Adelaide 2.1 3.2 3.2 3.2 20


Goals: Bentley, Charlton, Kraft, Pennifold, Schirmer
Best: Charlton, Kraft, Wright, Wilson, Thomas, Rivalland
Injuries: Nil

The South Adelaide U17 girls kicked off their 2019 campaign with a hard-fought two-goal win against West Adelaide at Thebarton Oval on Tuesday night.

The Panthers managed to hold the Bloods scoreless for the second half to set up the 3.2 (20) to 5.2 (32) victory.

The reigning premiers struggled in the opening term; as they were held goalless for the first quarter while West Adelaide booted two goals of their own.

"I thought we took a while to work ourselves into the game, but after quarter time, we improved our work rate and tightened up on the defensive side of things" said U17s Coach Ryan Skouborg.

"Really happy with how the girls responded and got the game on our terms after quarter time. Some great link up work by hand in tight and pressure on the ball carrier" he said.

It wasn't until Georgia Pennifold kicked truly after just a minute into the second term that the Panthers had their first major of the match.

Only five minutes later, 2019 league premiership player Teah Charlton showed her class with a perfectly struck goal on the run.

Then in the dying stages of the quarter; fellow 2019 league premiership player Brooklyn Kraft, showcased her strength and fancy footwork to dodge a few opponents before kicking truly from the pocket to get one of the goals of the night.

Heading into the main break; the Panthers had improved but were still trailing with a 3.0 (18) to 3.2 (20) deficit.

Coming out after the main break and with only two points separating the two teams; the third quarter saw some of the toughest and most pressure-based play of the day.

With both teams refusing to give an inch and displaying relentless tackling; both teams went scoreless for the third term.

In fact, the only major highlights of the third term came in the form of a Dusty inspired fend off by Teliya Hetaraka and an end to end play which would have resulted in a goal, if it wasn't for the time running out.

With 15 minutes left to decide the winner; Gypsy Schirmer took a few opponents on before kicking truly on the run to strike first for the Panthers and take the lead.

West Adelaide came close to scoring several times; however, credit goes to South Adelaide's backline for not only preventing the Bloods from doing so, but also allowing the Panthers signature rebound from defence.

After several tense minutes and close calls; Meg Bentley took a strong contested mark before drilling the goal to put the Panthers lead up to double digits.

With only four minutes left; the goal all but ensured South Adelaide's victory but the Panthers didn't take any chances and refused to take their foot off the pedal.

Players such as Emogen Johnson, Tahlita Buethke and Neriah Mills continued to get into the thick of the action right up until the final siren.

The Under-17 Girls take on the Redlegs next Tuesday night (September 3) kicking off at 6:45pm at Aldi Arena (Thebarton)

South Adelaide vs Adelaide Reserves
Round 18 - Flinders University Stadium - 24/08/19

South Adelaide 4.3 7.3 10.7 12.11 83
 Adelaide 2.1 7.2 8.4 12.4 76


Goals: Overall 3, Davis, Fitt 2, Cross, Wilkinson, Whittlesea, Sampson, Heaslip
Best: Liddle, Crabb, Haines, Overall, Cross, Davis
Injuries: Haren (Concussion)
Attendance: 1557

South Adelaide farewell two club greats with a seven-point victory over the AFL laden Adelaide on an emotional day at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

In a season that saw the Panthers suffer draws, close losses and the loss of key players to the AFL; the victory was the way best possible send off for the 200 plus gamer Bradley Crabb, and the five-time Knuckey Cup winner Nick Liddle.

Despite narrowly missing out on a finals spot; the scenes after the game were of celebration and emotion as the two were chaired off Flinders University Stadium in front of proud supporters and family.

With familiar faces watching; it was the Panthers who scored first with Sam Overall (14 disposals and four contested marks) kicking truly after three minutes of play.

Liam Fitt (15 disposals and five tackles) and Eamon Wilkinson (seven disposals and two marks) gave the Panthers two goals in two minutes mid-way through the first term.

Overall then followed up late in the quarter with his second goal to send the Panthers into the first break with a 4.3 (27) to 2.1 (13) lead.

Unlike the previous wet and wild round; Crabb and Liddle's farewell game was played in more favourable conditions.

Coming out after the first break; South Adelaide's leading goalkicker Joel Cross (24 disposals and five clearances) continued his string of impressive performances with a goal coming after just 58 seconds of play.

Just five minutes later, Hayden Sampson (14 disposals and four inside 50s) followed suit with his first goal of the match.

However, Adelaide were able to take control and the lead as they booted four unanswered goals midway through the quarter.

Luckily for the home side, Thomas Whittlesea (seven marks and five tackles) was able to steady the Panthers with a very late goal.

Heading into the main break with the narrowest of margins; 7.3 (45) to 7.2 (44), the Panthers had plenty of work to do to ensure the win.

Continuing his breakout year was Joe Haines who collected 31 disposals, 12 marks and four rebound 50s while going up against quality AFL opposition.

Overall continued his run; kicking his third goal to start the third quarter. Meanwhile, Co-Captain Matt Rose was also busy around the ground; finishing with 27 disposals, 11 tackles and five clearances.

Local product Ben Heaslip (19 disposals and three clearances) also continued his impressive season with a goal mid-way through the quarter.

With the Panthers holding Adelaide to just one goal for the quarter; an impressive clearance and goal by Abe Davis (24 disposals, nine marks and five tackles) saw South enter the final break with a 10.7 (67) to 8.4 (52) lead.

However, the quarter wasn't without setbacks; with Ben Haren suffering a bad concussion which forced him to be stretched from the game.

Coming out with one quarter left to play alongside two of South Adelaide's biggest cult heroes; it was Davis who struck first with a goal at the seventh minute mark.

Unfortunately, three costly free kicks resulted in three goals for Adelaide in just five minutes to cut the Panthers lead to single digits.

Luckily, the Panthers were able to steady through Fitt who kicked his second of the game at the twentieth minute mark.

Adelaide did respond with a goal, but it was too little too late, as the siren went to give the Panthers a win in their final game for the 2019 season.

Donning the blue and white for the last time, Nick Liddle finished his final game with 31 disposals, six marks and four tackles to be rightfully named best on ground for the Panthers.

Likewise, the king of KI finished with ten disposals and two marks against a quality AFL opponent; a staple of Crabb's tendency to take on and beat guys that are twice his size.

Despite other results not going South Adelaide's way, meant missing out on the finals by just one win; the season saw plenty of highs including numerous debutants, big wins and being the only team in the SANFL that didn't lose to the minor premiers.

Likewise, South Adelaide's third straight victory was a fitting send off for two club greats in front of adoring fans and family at Flinders University Stadium.

And here's to a hopefully bigger and better 2020 season for the boys in the blue and white.

The South Adelaide Reserves finish off their year in spectacular fashion; knocking off the Bulldogs by 36 points at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

It was another dominant second half display by the Panthers that saw them come out on top with a 16.4 (100) to 9.10 (64) victory.

Unfortunately, their fourth straight victory wasn't enough for the South Adelaide Reserves to make finals, as they missed out by just 3.5 per cent.

The game didn't begin exactly as planned; with the Panthers suffering two injuries early which took a toll on the side's rotations for the rest of the match.

However, it was Cam McGree who kicked the first goal of the match. He would go on to kick three goals in total and collect 29 hit outs and 14 disposals to be named the Best on Ground for the game.

Mid-way through the quarter, Brett Kennedy (15 disposals and six marks) kicked his first of many goals and Jesse Moffa (17 disposals and six marks) goaled late to send the Panthers into the first break with a narrow 3.0 (18) to 3.3 (21) deficit.

Joel Beeche (12 disposals and three tackles) would also open his account with his first coming after just three minutes of play.

Kennedy followed with his second goal of the game; however, Centrals had begun to take control, sending the Panthers into the main break facing a 5.0 (30) to 7.7 (49) deficit.

Coming out after the main break; McGree kicked his second goal of the match before back to back goals by Luke Bogle (29 disposals, eight tackles and six clearances) saw the Panthers reflect the second half surge that has become a signature over the past four weeks.

Kennedy booted his third goal while Nic Schwarz (23 disposals and five marks) and Tarik Illingworth (13 disposals and five tackles) followed with their first of the game.

Mark Noble continued to be busy around the ground; finishing the match with 33 disposals, eight marks and seven clearances. Meanwhile, James Loneragan was strong down back; collecting 18 disposals and seven rebound 50s.

Kicking six third quarter goals to the visitors two; the Panthers went into the final break with seven-point lead and strong momentum.

The momentum continued in the final quarter as Beeche kicked his second, McGree kicked his third and Kennedy kicked his fourth goal of the match.

Kyle Emery (19 disposals and five tackles) also got on the board with two final quarter goals; one of which came from a tough angle and off a good assist by Kennedy.

With the Panthers holding the Bulldogs goalless in the final quarter; South Adelaide ran away with a six-goal victory in the final game of 2019.

Finals aside, the victory came against quality opposition in the form of the fourth placed Bulldogs, was a fitting way to end the 2019 season.

South Adelaide Under-18s finish off the minor round with a comfortable win over Centrals on Saturday morning.

Round 18 saw us travel to Elizabeth Oval to play Central for the second time in 3 rounds.

This time it was before Central's League team and their coach Roy Laird's last game after 17 years in charge of the club, which is a fantastic achievement.

Although Central Under 18's has not had a great season, we were expecting there to be some emotion in the game given the day for the club and its leader.

We had two changes to the team this week with Arlo Draper going out with injury and our captain, Aaron Douglass going up to the reserves.

This gave two Reynella boys an opportunity. Boyd Austin came back into the side after missing since round 10.

Lachlan Inthavong got a chance, this time playing as a small defender due to good form playing A grade for Reynella in the same position.

In the first quarter we had almost twice as many possessions as Centrals. In the second they were almost level.

We did have twice the inside 50's, but Centrals scored from some of our mistakes.

At one stage it looked as if we were going to lose the quarter, Daniel Sladojevic and Mitch Riddle both goaled within the last three minutes, to go into half time 32 points up.

We started the 3rd quarter well by creating chances, but again we couldn't convert as well as we would like.

Sladojevic kicked three for the quarter and Liam Hamilton bobbed up and kicked one to give us a 59-point lead at the last change. 

After 3-quarter time as the players were going back out to their position, we were advised that one of the Central players was requiring an ambulance to take him to hospital following a knee injury sustained earlier in the match.

Due to the the time it would take for the ambulance to arrive, it would have meant that there would only be approximately 10-minutes of play remaining. 

After discussions with all parties, the game was abandoned giving us a 59-point win.

We were happy to take the win and end the minor round in 3rd spot behind the Eagles and West Adelaide.

We now get ready to play Glenelg in a Elimination Final next Saturday, win and we play off in a preliminary final, lose and the season is finished. We look forward to the challenge.

Betta Teams: Juniors - U18 Round 18

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 22 August 2019
Betta Teams: Juniors - U18 Round 18

South Adelaide Under-18s travel to the Ponderosa in an important clash to end the home and away season on Saturday morning.

Having got past the fourth placed Roosters to lock in a finals berth last week, the in-form Under-18s will look for a strong showing against a Centrals outfit who has struggled in 2019. 

There is a chance the Panther Juniors could finish second and earn the double chance, should the sixth placed Redlges take the points over the second placed Bloods and the Panthers get over the Dogs. 

There are three confirmed changes with Daniel Sladojevic and Round 17 Cardijn College Junior Player of the week Arlo Draper ruled out of Saturdays clash. Captian and 2019 Sammy D Medalist Aaron Douglass has been called up to play Reserves against Centrals on Saturday morning. 

This opens the door for Lachlan InthavongKyle Bray-Wallace and Max Rogerson who all return into the squad of 23. 

The Under-18s kick off at 11:15am on Saturday morning at X Convenience Oval (Elizabeth)
