Reserves Match Report

SANFL Trial 3
Flinders University Stadium - 23/03/19

South Adelaide 1.2 2.4 4.4 5.6 36
Eagles 4.3 9.5 9.6 11.9 75

Goals: Grimley 2, McGree, Carcuro, Milsom

A slow start for South Adelaide's Reserves proved costly in their final trial game against Woodville-West Torrens at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The young Panthers were sluggish out of the blocks and allowed the Eagles to build a lead they could not pull back on the way to a 5.6 (36) to 11.9 (75) loss.

South Adelaide junior James Grimley scored the Panthers only goal of the first term, marking strongly and converting his set shot midway through the term. His first of two goals.

However, the Panthers leaked four the other way and found themselves down by 19 at the first change.

Young ruckman Cameron McGree put in an impressive performance, playing across all three lines at various stages of the game.

His work around the stoppages and in the air was top class and he found himself on the goal kickers list in the second term.

However, again the Eagles dominated the term and pushed their lead to 43 at the long break.

South looked a different side after halftime and did peg the lead back marginally.

Sam Whitbread and Tarik Illingworth began to get their hands on the Burley, while Jaidan Kappler and Bailey Snelling had some nice moments in defence.

Goals to Tristan Carcuro and Grimley's second saw the hosts win the term as they held the Eagles to a solitary behind.

The game opened up again for the visitors in the last and they ultimately extended their lead to 39 at the final siren.

This weekend the Reserves get their first crack at premiership points when they tackle Central District on Saturday morning.

Action gets underway at 10:30am and is following by the League (1:10pm) and Round 6 of the SANFL Statewide Super Women's League (3:45pm - also against the Bulldogs).
