South Adelaide's Reserves fell to a five-goal loss against Glenelg at Gliderol Stadium on Friday night.
The Panthers were unable to overcome a fast finishing Tigers outfit and ultimately succumbed to a 10.7 (67) to 14.14 (97) defeat.
With the temperature quickly dropping at the Bay it took both sides time to get going as they traded goals in the first quarter.
South closed the first strongly and an early goal to Coby Helyar would give them a nine-point buffer in the first minute of the second term.
However, it would be the visitors only major of the stanza and five unanswered goals would give the Tigers a 28-point advantage heading into the major break.
Skill errors and turnovers proved costly for South as Glenelg converted several mistakes into scoring opportunities.
Things began to look grim for the Panthers after Warrick McGinty goalled in the opening minutes of the third to widen the margin to 34.
To their credit, South responded quickly and convincingly, booting the next four. Once Jaidan Kappler slotted his second in the 22nd minute the margin was cut to just two.
However, it would be the hosts who came home stronger, as Glenelg kicked five unanswered goals either side of the last change to re-open a 37-point deficit for South.
Ben Haren's consolation goal in the final minutes would be their only score of the quarter.
Tarak Redigolo put forward another strong case for promotion to the League side with a team-high 26 disposals, while Connor Fairlie (21 touches and a goal) and Tarik Illingworth (16 possessions) were busy around the ground.
