Woodville-West Torrens 3.0 5.1 6.5 6.7 43

Goals: McCreery 4, Nye 2, Elsworthy, Freitag, Sladojevic
Best: Juckers, Bogle, Biemans, McKinnon, Nye, McCreery

Third time's the charm: The South Adelaide Reserves stun the Eagles with a classy 15-point win at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The bottom-placed Panthers faced off against the fifth-placed Eagles for the third time this season, with the previous two encounters ending in a 67-point loss and a 34-point loss.

However, this time it was the Panthers time to shine, and the side pulled through with their best display of the year to win, 9.4 (58) to 6.7 (43).

Impressive for the Panthers was Luke Bogle, who finished with a game-high of 42 disposals to go along with his 11 marks and 5 clearances. Also impressive was Jake McCreery, who collected 4 goals, and Anthony Biemans, who finished with 20 disposals and 9 tackles.

However, the opening term was not as stunning as the end result, because the Panthers went goalless for the duration of the quarter. This lacklustre opening term, which could have been worse if it were not for some interceptions by Lachlan Williams, saw the boys in the blue and white enter the first break trailing by 17 points.

The Panthers first major of the day came from an unlikely culprit, with Jack Elsworthy sneaking down to open the Panthers goalkicking account. Playing one of his best games this season was Liam Nye, who also added a goal to his tally midway through the second term.

But the talking point of the second term came from McCreery, who took the Eagles defenders to the Zoo by kicking 4 majors within the space of 12 minutes.

This feat saw the Panthers enter halftime with a 6.3 (39) to 5.1 (31) lead: a 25-point turnaround that the Panthers refused to let slip during the second half.

After some wayward kicking by the Eagles let the Panthers off easily; Daniel Sladojevic struck with his first of the day, only to be followed minutes late by Nye's second goal of the match.

Meanwhile, around the ground, Jesse McKinnon and Fraser Turner were both busy, with the former collecting 25 touches and 6 clearances while the latter finished with 25 touches and 6 marks.

Leading 8.3 (51) to 6.5 (41) at the final change; the Panthers were forced to hold off a relentless and desperate Eagles outfit.

Four minutes into the final term, Damon Freitag gave the Panthers a much-needed buffer with his first of the match. From here, some strong team defending and interceptions by Aaron Douglass, saw the Panthers over the line with the impressive win, 9.4 (58) to 6.7 (43).

The Panthers will look to keep this winning form when they face off against Norwood at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, 10 July, from 10:15am.

MRS Property Match Report

South Adelaide vs Woodville-West Torrens
Round 13- Flinders University Stadium - 03/07/21

South Adelaide2.25.46.96.945
Woodville-West Torrens 4.1 7.2 10.2 13.3 81

Goals: Overall 2, Cross, Skinner, Tucker, Wilkinson
Best: Sampson, Broadbent, Wilkinson, Tucker

A costly second half sees South Adelaide suffer a six-goal defeat at the hands of the Eagles at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The Panthers entered the halftime break facing a narrow 10-point deficit, but they would only muster one more goal during the final half while the Eagles managed six to set up the 6.9 (45) to 13.3 (81) defeat.

Wearing the stunning indigenous guernsey, it was Hayden Sampson who led the way for the Panthers with 28 disposals, 8 marks and 6 tackles. Meanwhile, the Reynella debutant Nick Kraemer, finished with 10 touches and 4 tackles.

Five minutes into the match the Panthers opened the scoring with a Sam Overall goal. But as would be the theme for the majority of the match, the side could not record back-to-back goals as the next two majors of the opening term went the way of the Eagles.

The Panthers would eventually find a steadier after the debutant Kraemer combined with Matthew Broadbent on the forward flank who then chipped it inside 50 to Eamon Wilkinson. Wilkinson then passed it off and this unselfish play was finished off nicely by Joel Cross, whose goal brought the lead to within a kick.

However, two unanswered goals by the Eagles put the Panthers on the back foot on the scoreboard while on the field, Sampson had to deal with a late hit which saw a small melee erupt in the final minutes of the opening term.

Nonetheless, the Panthers went into the first break facing a 2.2 (14) to 4.1 (25) deficit. But they would be forced to finish the match without last week's Best on Ground, Mitch O'Neill, who was sidelined with a hamstring injury.

The opening minutes of the second term saw Wilkinson set up another teammate, this time it was Overall who went back and drilled his second goal of the day. Then, not to be outdone on the highlight reel, Joe Haines took a Mark of the Week contender in the centre of the ground to prevent a dangerous Eagles' rebound.

The defence, who welcomed back James Loneragan from injury, did their best to hold out against the potent Eagles attack with one of their defensive rebounds resulting in a Wilkinson goal at the other end.

Minutes later, Sam Skinner kicked truly from close range for his first of the day which was also the first time the Panthers had kicked back-to-back goals.

This was a rare moment for the side as the Panthers struggled to break through the Eagles defence. In total, the Panthers collected 11 more inside 50s than the Eagles but they only converted on 33 per cent of entries. The Eagles on the other hand were slightly cleaner, finishing with 46 per cent.

After dictating the play for the majority of the second term, the Eagles struck with two goals within the final two minutes to snatch the leadand the Panthers would not gain the lead for the remainder of the match.

Darnell Tucker struck with a much-needed goal for the Panthers during the opening minutes of the third term, but this would prove to be the Panthers last major score of the match.

Although the side struggled to break through the thick Eagles flood and their tough defence, the side only trailed by 17 points at the final change. However, three goals from the visitors within the final three minutes of the match sealed the bitter loss for the Panthers, 6.9 (45) to 13.3 (81).

South Adelaide unveils 2021 Indigenous guernsey

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 29 June 2021
South Adelaide unveils 2021 Indigenous guernsey

South Adelaide are proud to reveal their 2021 Indigenous Guernsey to be worn against the Eagles on Saturday.

Designed by Flinders University Student Mya Damon, who is currently studying a Bachelor of Archaeology, has an interest in modern and ancient history as well as visual arts.

As a Barngarla (Whyalla) woman born on Nawu country, Tumby Bay, Mya has a keen interest in archaeology which had begun through her Indigenous and European heritage.

"We're thrilled to once again have the support from Flinders University in producing this special guernsey" said South Adelaide CEO Neill Sharpe.

"There are many ways in which we can recognise, value and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's culture, and I feel that this certainly does that."

"Mya Damon is a very talented artist who is extremely proud of her heritage. We're thrilled to have had Mya design our guernsey."

Hayden Sampson showing the front of the South Adelaide Indigenous Guernsey. 

The theme behind the design is connection, specifically the connection between the South Adelaide Football Club and the local Southern region.

When talking about the design, Mya said that it was great to be able to "include bright colours and symbols to symbolise coming together, community and connection."

On the front of the guernsey, the design shows meeting places and others coming together as one.

The back of the guernsey symbolises the Panthers connection to Port Noarlunga at Flinders University Stadium.

The Panthers will wear the guernsey against the Eagles on Saturday, and next week against the Crows at Victor Harbor for NAIDOC Week.

Match-worn guernseys will be available to purchase. More information to come.

MRS Property Match Report

South Adelaide vs Sturt
Round 12 - Unley Oval - 26/06/21

South Adelaide2.42.94.105.1444
Sturt 3.0 6.3 7.5 8.7 55

Goals: McCreery, O'Neill, Overall, Tucker, Wilkinson
Best: O'Neill, Haines, Horne, Tucker

Wet, Muddy and Missed chances: South Adelaide fall to an 11-point defeat against Sturt at Unley Oval on a wet and wild Saturday.

The Panthers, who received a less than welcome reception to the local park, battled it out with the Double Blues throughout the match but ultimately their wayward kicking proved one hurdle too many, 5.14 (44) to 8.7 (55).

Playing one of his best games for the side was Mitch O'Neill, who finished with 21 disposals, 7 marks and a goal. Bryce Gibbs was also impressive with 24 touches and 8 tackles.

Coming off a bye, the Panthers made four changes to their Round Eleven side as Eamon Wilkinson made his long-awaited return from injury. He was joined by Darnell Tucker and debutant pair, Bailey Griffiths and Jake McCreery.

It was McCreery who was the first to strike on the behalf of the Panthers, with his mark on the line and subsequent goal handing the Panthers a one-point lead halfway through the opening term.

Evans, playing in his final match, then struck for the home side to put the Panthers on the back foot once again. This was only momentarily, however, as Tucker welcomed his return to league football with a lead-taking goal.

Heading into the first break facing a 2.4 (16) to 3.0 (18), the Panthers finishing in front of goal went from bad to worse, as the side collected just five behinds during the second half.

Then, in front of the benches, a late hit on Joel Cross after the halftime siren quickly erupted into a melee as the umpires struggled to gain control but they were able to force apart the two sides.

The Panthers, who faced a hostile and unsportsmanlike reception from the crowd as they went down the race, were not phased by the crowd as they had the scoreboard on their mind.

Despite leading the match in scoring shots, the halftime scoreline read 2.9 (21) to 6.3 (39). To make matters worse, Sam Skinner would remain in the changerooms and would not take part in the remainder of the match.

A tense atmosphere, cold conditions and an extremely muddy oval; mixed with 32 frees paid within the opening half, equalled a scrappy match, to say the least.

The defence did their best to keep the Double Blues from blowing the game open, with Joe Haines and Matthew Broadbent helping hold the back six together. On the attacking side of things, Wilkinson welcomed his return from injury with a much-needed goal midway through the third term.

Then, O'Neill struck in the dying stages with his first of the match to bring the deficit to 4.10 (34) to 7.5 (47) at the final break.

Sam Overall struck just a minute into the final term to bring the lead within two kicks, yet on the postage stamp oval and with the wet conditions, free-flowing football came had to find and the scoring dried up.

After some close calls, the final siren would sound to signal the hard-fought, 5.14 (44) to 8.7 (55) defeat.

Still sitting third on the ladder, South Adelaide will look to bounce back when they face off against Woodville-West Torrens at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, 3 July, from 1:35pm.

MRS Property Reserves Match Report

South Adelaide vs Sturt
Round 12 - Unley Oval - 26/06/21

South Adelaide0.01.43.56.541
Sturt 4.4 8.6 11.9 12.13 85

Goals: Kraemer, Machin, Megins, Sladojevic, Whitbread, Williams
Best: Kraemer

A slow starts sees the South Adelaide Reserves suffer a 44-point defeat against Sturt at Unley Oval on Saturday.

The Panthers, who were facing off against the third-placed Double Blues, went scoreless for the opening term which set the tone for their 6.5 (41) to 12.13 (85) defeat.

Impressive for the Panthers was Nicholas Kraemer, who finished with 23 touches, 15 tackles and a goal, while Fraser Turner collected 28 disposals, 8 marks and 6 tackles.

One positive sign for the blue and white was that the Panthers Reserves welcomed back a returning trio of injured players: Luke Bogle, Anthony Biemans, and Daniel Sladojevic. They also welcomed Under-18s player, Luke Mitton

The Panthers did not register a major score until 39 minutes into the game, but it was a poetic score as it was Sladojevic who kicked truly to celebrate his long-awaited return to football.

It would be some time before drinks again for the Panthers, as the next major would not come until deep into the third term, courtesy of Ollie Megins. Then, minutes later, Lachlan Williams struck to hand the Panthers back-to-back goals for the first time during the game.

Trailing by eight goals at the final break, the Panthers showed some fight during the final term as they outscored their opponents, 3 goals to 1. But the damage was already done, and the Panthers fell to a 6.5 (41) to 12.13 (85) defeat.

The Panthers will look to find some winning form when they face off against the Eagles at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, 3 July, from 10:55am.

BETTA Teams Selection: Round 11 @ Sturt

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 24 June 2021
BETTA Teams Selection: Round 11 @ Sturt

The Panthers name two debutantes for Saturday's clash against Sturt.

Having sat on a disappointing effort against Norwood a fortnight ago, the Panthers have made a number of changes. 

Amongst these changes is the inclusion of Jake McCreery and Bailey Griffiths who are both set to make their debut. 

The 2020 J.L. Brown Trophy (Reserves Best and Fairest) winner McCreery has had a string of strong performances in the reserves so far in 2021, including impacting the scoreboard regularly averaging a goal a game. 

Fellow debutant Bailey Griffiths will also make his League debut alongside McCreery. 

Standing in at 205cm, the young ruck is the son of dual basketball Olympian Michelle Brogan, and is the nephew of former Panther and Power star Dean Brogan.

Griffiths played for the Oakleigh Chargers, before trying his hand at Basketball. 

Having made the move to South Adelaide 2021, Griffiths has averaged 23.8 hit-outs in the Reserves. 

Also coming into the extended squad is Darnell Tucker, Luke Bogle and Danny Juckers

Eamon Wilkinson will return after spending 5 weeks on the sideline with a calf complaint.

Meanwhile there are a few key ins for the Reserves.

Anthony Beimans will return to football for the first time since round 4, which was also against Sturt, having overcome a hamstring injury. 

Daniel Sladojevic will play his first game for 2021 after a lengthy period on the sidelines due to a hip issue. 

The Panthers and Double Blues have split the last four encounters at two apiece, however it is a different story at Unley Oval with Sturt wining four of the last five. 

Please note that the start times has been brought forward to 2:10pm for League and 11:30am for Reserves.

South Adelaide3.310.912.1014.1599
Sturt 1.3 1.3 4.8 5.11 41

Goals: Hoeck 4, D.Brown, Schirmer 3, Barrett, Draper, Howes, Rodrigues
Best: Mitton, Marshall, Draper, Amos, Hoeck, R.Brown

A second-quarter surge saw the South Adelaide Under-18s storm home to claim a 58-point win over Sturt at Unley Oval on Saturday.

The Panthers, who finished with a total of 29 scoring shots, amassed 13 of them during a dominant second quarter display which helped springboard them to a 14.15 (99) to 5.11 (41) win.

Returning from the Reserves and immediately having an impact was Arlo Draper, who finished with a match-high 30 disposals as well as 9 clearances and a goal. Up forward, Hugo Hoeck collected 13 touches and 4 goals while Dylan Brown and Tom Schirmer both added 3 goals to their season tally.

South Adelaide's goal-kicking sprees seemed to come in waves during the match. It took eleven minutes before the Panthers were able to break through with their first goal of the match but they managed to kick a further two majors within the following five minutes. 

This effort gave the side a healthy two-goal buffer at the first break, and it also set the stage for the impressive second term display.

Once again the Panthers attacks came in waves, with the side booting 3 unanswered goals within the opening eight minutes. Then they broke the Double Blues defence midway through the second term with 4 straight goals in just ten minutes.

By the time the halftime siren sounded, the Panthers had scored 7.6 (48) during the second quarter while holding the home side scoreless.

After this blistering goal spree, each side would only kick an additional 4 goals during the second half. Schirmer's third and Hoeck's fourth goal came in the final term to help boost the Panthers final score up to 14.15 (99) to 5.11 (41).

This convincing win brings the Panthers to within a point of second spot and just two wins below the top spot.

South Adelaide will now face off against their old rival, Woodville-West Torrens, at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval on Saturday, 3 July.
