The Panthers were able to steady with a goal by Jesse McKinnon late in the quarter, but South headed into the main break facing a ten-point deficit.

The Eagles enjoyed most of the momentum in the third quarter, kicking two unanswered goals within the first ten minutes.

However, back to back goals by Kennedy created a chance of a comeback for the visitors but the Eagles struck again, scoring within the last two minutes to give South plenty of work to do heading into the final quarter.

McKinnon tried all game to create chances for the Panthers, collecting 22 disposals, seven clearances and six inside 50s.

With a 7.5 (47) to 9.12 (66) deficit for the Panthers, James Grimley (ten disposals and six marks) goaled four minutes in but it was to no avail as the Eagles went on to kick five straight goals in the next six minutes of play.

South Adelaide did not stop fighting however, with Kennedy kicking two goals in five minutes and Grimley kicking his second of the game with just a minute left.

Sam Whitbread was impressive for the visitors, finishing with 22 disposals and seven tackles while Darnell Tucker finished with 19 disposals and three tackles.

Outstanding was Kennedy, who finished the game with five goals as well as two marks and three tackles.

South Adelaide now sit seventh on the ladder, but the closely contested season sees them sit only one win behind the third placed West

The Reserves will now face Norwood on Monday, June 10, at Flinders University Stadium from 11:30am.
