South Adelaide's Reserves fell short against Woodville-West Torrens in their final trial game before Round 1.

Battling stiff competition and even tougher conditions, the Panthers fought back admirably in the fourth with the wind at their backs, but ultimately fell to a 11.10 (76) to 13.8 (86) defeat.

With a strong north-south breeze favouring the Eagles in the first term, the visitors enjoyed much of the play and were able to convert several shots from distance.

Veteran Tarak Redigolo stood firm in defence, putting his body on the line and taking several intercept marks, while young on ballers Coby Helyar and Toby Case won their share of the ball.

South did fight back late in the piece, kicking three goals into the wind, including an powerful mark and finish from Nathan Kreuger, who showed flashes of his athleticism before being sidelined with a knock to the chest.

The script flipped in the second, with the Panthers playing direct attacking, if not wasteful, footy with the wind and Woodville-West Torrens pegging back their advantage with some accurate finishing into the wind.

The third term belonged to the visitors, with the Eagles kicking 6.2 to 0.0 and opening up an imposing buffer at the final change.

However, South showed plenty of fight in the final term, holding Woodville scoreless and nearly snatching a comeback win.

Morphett Vale recruits Lee Hoey and Blake Carter looked dangerous in attack, while youngster Tarik Illingworth also had his chances to put South into the lead.

The Panthers will rue their inaccurate finishing in the final term, but showed definite improvement from their first trial against North Adelaide.
