South Adelaide's Reserves succumbed to a 4.7 (31) to 9.11 (65) defeat in their first outing of 2018.

The Panthers struggled to hit the scoreboard early and with their disposal efficiency throughout the afternoon, which proved to be their major downfall.

Meanwhile, North Adelaide surged forward in numbers and were impressive with their forward pressure.

Former Panthers junior and current Under-18 squad member Tarik Illingworth and Tom Sparrow were the major ball winners for South, with the latter also hitting the scoreboard.

Brad Crabb marshalled the backlines well, gathering 11 touches and leading the side in team positives and spoils.

Meanwhile, Tarak Redigolo also made a successful return to competitive football, collecting 10 touches.

Despite the result, Michael Handby's side fielded only three players with SANFL experience and also exposed three South juniors to senior football.

And to their credit, the young Panthers fought out the match to the final siren. While the skills were lacking in patches, the endeavor could never be questioned.

Season 2018 is just around the corner...have you renewed your Membership?
