League Match Report

South Adelaide @ Port Adelaide
Round 2 - Alberton Oval - 06/04/19

South Adelaide 3.5 5.6 12.7 14.10 94
Port Adelaide 2.1 4.3 6.4 8.10 58


Goals: Whittlesea 5, Cross, Heaslip, Cailotto 2, Schwarz, Noble, Liddle
Best: Cross, Whittlesea, Summerton, Rose, Schwarz, Noble
Injuries: Overall (groin)
Crowd: 1509

South Adelaide have continued their strong start to the season with a six-goal over Port Adelaide at Alberton on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers controlled proceedings for most of the afternoon and used an unanswered stretch of six goals at the start of the third term to push their way to a 14.10 (94) to 8.10 (58) win away from home.

Co-captain Joel Cross again led from the front despite some heavy attention from the Magpies throughout the game.

Cross racked up 24 touches and six clearances to go with two major scores - one an impressive roost from 55m towards the Magpies cheer squad end.

South unfortunately lost spearhead Sam Overall to a groin injury within minutes of the first bounce. His injury was not described as serious, but team medicos took no chances and put the big forward on ice for the remainder of the afternoon.

Overall's absence inside 50 opened room for another Panthers forward to stand up and Tom Whittlesea did just that with a game-breaking five-goal performance

The Panthers started the more lively of the two sides, with the majority of the play in the opening minutes played in their forward half.

After a few empty ventures it would be defender-come-forward Alex Cailotto that got the Panthers on the board with a strong mark and set shot.

Minutes later Cross added his first as he played on from a mark in the pocket. However, Port soon reeled back the lead with goals to AFL-listed pair Billy Frampton and Cameron Hewett.

South continued to control meaningful possession, with a fast start to Nic Schwarz (17 touches, seven tackles and a goal) and Mark Noble (20 touches and a goal) particularly catching the eye.

After Noble kicked truly deep into time on South took a ten-point advantage into the first break.

Port were also dealt early injury blows with skipper Cam Sutcliffe (hamstring) and Aidyn Johnson (concussion) hitting the showers early.

However, it did not hinder Port chances after the restart, with two goals in two minutes from the classy Kane Farrell giving the Magpies their first lead of the afternoon in the blink of an eye.

Fortunately for the Panthers faithful, skipper Cross responded with a long range bomb to restore his side's lead and Whittlesea's first pushed the difference back to two kicks.

South Adelaide's defence was doing an excellent job of nullifying the Magpies fire power, with Jake Summerton standing tall against the task of manning Todd Marshall and holding him goalless.

Not to be outdone by his fellow captain, Matt Rose also provided plenty of run out of defence, racking up a team-high 27-touches and seven rebound 50s. Most impressively he found most of his footy in the final term with both sides out on their legs with no interchanges remaining.


 

The third term was all Panthers as the visitors kicked six unanswered goals to establish a 46-point buffer by the 15 minute mark.

Ben Heaslip added two major scores, one dribbling home from long distance and the other a coolly converted set shot much to the chagrin of some vocal supporters in the lawn bowls pocket.

Schwarz and Cailotto also got in on the goal party, while Whittlesea continued to tear the Magpies defence apart with two more for the term before adding two more in the final frame.

The win pushes the Panthers clear atop the SANFL Statewide Super League ladder thanks to their superior percentage over Norwood.

It also sets up an intriguing match up with Glenelg this weekend, who sit third on the table after dismantling Adelaide on Friday night.

Make sure to get out to ACH Group Stadium (Glenelg) next Saturday (1.10pm, Saturday, April 13) to cheer the Panthers on and celebrate Brad Crabb's 200th and Tyson Brown's 50th games for the club.

Reserves Match Report

South Adelaide @ Glenelg
Round 2 - ACH Group Stadium - 06/04/19

South Adelaide 4.2 7.2 11.6 14.9 93
Glenelg 2.0 4.5 8.7 10.9 69


Goals: Emery 4, McGree, Illingworth 2, Elmes, McKinnon, Colwell, Sladojevic, Freitag, Kennedy
Best: Emery, McGree, Hoey, Snelling, Fairlie, Kennedy

South Adelaide's Reserves recorded their first win of the season with a wire-to-wire victory over Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday morning.

The Panthers got off to a fast start and were able to maintain that buffer throughout the game to run out 14.9 (93) to 10.9 (69) winners away from home.

Young ruckman Damon Freitag got South on the board within two minutes as he kicked truly in the opening minutes.

Glenelg's side boasted some serious League experience in the likes of Matthew SnookIan MileraDarcy Bailey and Michael Virgin and Bailey showed his class to quickly reply for the Bays.

However, South's ruck stocks continued to give Glenelg headaches as Cameron McGree added two of his own midway through the term.

Once North Adelaide recruit Brett Kennedy added the Panthers fourth at the 20 minute mark the visitors lead pushed to 20 just before the first break.

New recruit Kyle Emery began to stamp his mark on a best on ground performance as he kicked his first of four goals within a minute of the restart.

Emery was dominant up forward for South, presenting well all afternoon and taking seven strong marks in his 19 touches.

The Panthers forwards enjoyed plenty of supply throughout the morning (50 inside 50s to 39) thanks in large part to the solid play of their backline.

Lee Hoey (17 touches and nine marks) was a pillar in defence, while young Bailey Snelling stood tall under several high balls.

Glenelg continued to push back as they controlled possession of the football (342 disposals to 273), but South's pressure on the ball carrier stopped the weight of numbers converting to anything truly damaging.

South spread the load with nine goal kickers amongst their 14 major scores and even numbers across their major ball winners.

Connor Fairlie was industrious with his 21 touches, while Kennedy (17 possessions) didn't rack up enormous numbers but made the most of each disposal.

After quarter time South were never truly challenged, with Emery's fourth midway through the final term pushing their lead to a game-high 29 points.

It will be an intriguing match up this weekend as South again travel to Glenelg to face the Tigers.

Action gets underway from 10.30am, Saturday, April 13.

Under-18s Match Report

South Adelaide @ Glenelg
Round 2 - ACH Group Stadium - 06/04/19

South Adelaide 2.2 4.3 7.5 8.7 55
Glenelg 3.1 7.10 8.11 8.12 60


Goals: Riddle, Hindes, Nye 2, Grimley, McCreery
Best: Kraemer, Dumesny, Hamilton, Clifton, Williams, Lippett

South Adelaide's Under-18s have dropped to third on the ladder after a nail-biting loss to Glenelg at the Bay.

This weekend we travelled down the hill to ACH Group Stadium (Glenelg) to take on the Tigers in what was perfect conditions for footy.

In an unusual occurrence for junior football we had an unchanged team from the side that defeated Central District in Round 1.

In the first half we played quite well, with most of the key stats even between the two teams. We managed to kick the first two goals through Liam Nye and Sam Hindes.

However, the last half of the quarter we made some mistakes and Glenelg took full advantage of these opportunities to kick the next three goals and take a five-point lead into quarter time.

The second quarter Glenelg took complete control of the game, having twice as many disposals, 10 more clearances and 12 more inside 50s for the term. As a result they booted 4.9 to our two goals.

We were unwilling to defend and were lucky Glenelg didn't kick straight or the game would have been out of reach at halftime. As it was we were 25-points down but had a lot of work to do to get back into the game.

The start of the third was a tough one and we missed an early opportunity, but it did take Glenelg seven minutes to kick their first of the quarter, which extended their lead to 30 points.

To our guys credit, they did not give up and we kicked the next three goals through Hindes, Mitch Riddle and Beau McCreery to cut the Tigers lead to 12 points and head into the last with the momentum.

The last quarter we started to get our hands on the ball and played most of it in our front half. 

We kept Glenelg to only a solitary behind for the quarter, which showed we didn't lose the ability we showed the week before, but our attitude going into the game probably wasn't where it needed to be.

We managed to kick one goal and had other opportunities that we couldn't convert and unfortunately went down by five points.

This week we travel back to Prospect Oval for the second time already this season. This time to play North Adelaide.

Under-16s Match Report

South Adelaide @ Glenelg
Round 5 - ACH Group Stadium - 06/04/19

South Adelaide 4.4 7.8 11.15 13.18 96
Glenelg 1.1 2.1 2.2 3.6 24


Goals: Roberts, Ball 3, Rogers, Morton 2, Bradley, Hicks, Draper
Best: Roberts, Horne, Birt, Draper, Brown, Norman-Brown

South Adelaide's Under-16s put in strong team performance to knock off Glenelg by 72 points at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

This week we came up against a very good Glenelg side on their home deck. So we new it was going to be a great challenge for our group.

The focus throughout the week was on our pressure on the opposition when they had the ball.

We got off to a fast start. Our pressure was up and it looked like the players came in with the right mindset and were ready to play.

Our control and ball movement was excellent and our defenders killed the ball in the air.

 

We put on some scoreboard pressure with eight scoring shots to two and took a 21-point lead into the first break.

The second quarter was similar and the players maintained the pressure and ball control we needed.

Again we controlled the scoreboard with seven scoring shots to one and headed in at halftime with a handy 37-point lead.

The second half was all the same.

We continued to control the footy in our forward half, winning the inside 50 count 51-28 and outweighing the shots on goal 31 to nine.

If not for some inaccuracy we could have won by much more.

Overall we were very happy with a great team performance from the boys.

This weekend we travel to Prospect Oval to face a North Adelaide side that is just percentage below us on the ladder in what should be another great challenge for our players.

Betta Teams: SANFL Round 2 - South Adelaide vs Port Adelaide
 

It's a top-of-the-ladder clash this Saturday as South Adelaide travel to Alberton Oval to face Port Adelaide in Round 2 SANFL Statewide Super League action.

The Panthers dismantled Central District with an eight-goal blitz in the fourth quarter to get their season off to a winning start last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Magpies made light work of West Adelaide at Richmond.

South will be boosted by the inclusion of new recruit Malcolm Karpany, who was a late withdrawal in Round 1 after welcoming a new-born son into the world during the early hours of Saturday morning.

Also coming into the side is young midfielder Jesse McKinnon after a best afield performance in the Reserves last weekend.

No omissions have been named at this stage.

The Panthers Reserves could also take an unchanged line up into their clash with Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium (Glenelg) earlier in the day.

South Adelaide's women will play their first ever game at ACH Group Stadium as they travel to Glenelg to face the Tigers on Friday evening.

The Panthers are coming off of a strong win against Central District in Round 6, but will make at least two forced changes to the side that knocked off the Dogs.

Star ruck Montana McKinnon is unavailable to play due to AFLW Academy commitments, while young defender Emily Brockhurst has been withdrawn after suffering a knee injury last weekend.

However, South do welcome back duo Brianna Wedding and Alana Browne from respective hand and calf injuries.

Also in line to potentially make her SANFL Statewide Super Women's League debut is young ruck Brooklyn Kraft.

Kraft, 16 from Encounter Bay, has progressed through the Panthers successful female football pathway and now finds herself on an extended interchange to face Glenelg.

Women's League action gets underway at the Bay from 5:15pm tomorrow night. Entry is free.
