South Adelaide's Reserves claimed a come-from-behind victory over Sturt on the back of a seven-goal haul from Kyle Emery at Peter Motley Oval on Sunday afternoon.

The Panthers found themselves down by as many as 25 points midway through the third term, but clawed their way back into the match and ultimately banked a 11.11 (77) to 10.9 (69) win in enemy territory.

Emery was outstanding, kicking five of his seven goals after Sturt's lead reached it's largest to pull his side back into the contest, while also gathering 23 touches and clunking eight marks.

Speedy defender Robert Badger (16 disposals and nine tackles) was also impressive, while Ben Heaslip continued to press for a League recall with a game-high 31 possessions and 10 clearances.

Sturt started the faster of the two sides, restricting South to a single goal through Jackson Elmes (three for the day) and opening up a 15-point margin at the first break in play.

James Grimley brought South within a kick at the start of the second, before the hosts again kicked away.

Emery halted a run of three Double Blue majors with two of his own late in the second quarter to cut the difference to two goals at halftime.

Inaccuracy was shaping to be South's downfall, as they headed to the rooms with more scoring shots, but without much reward on the scoreboard.

However, Michael Handby's men kept cool heads and continued to battle away at the deficit.

Reece Milsom (20 touches) and Jaidan Kappler (17) began to slingshot South into attack from the back half, while Jonty Manuel also stood tall in his defensive role.

Emery kicked another two and Elmes his second to pull the lead to single digits at the final break.

The final term was all Panthers. Emery's fifth and Elmes' third gave the visitors their first lead since the first quarter.

Sean Samblich replied for Sturt, but Emery soon had his sixth and seventh and more importantly his side had an eight point lead when the final siren sounded.

The Reserves now sit fifth on the ladder, with four teams tied on six points, behind an unbeaten Central District outfit atop the table.

It sets up an important clash with West Adelaide this Saturday, May 4. Reserves action gets under way from 10:30am, followed by League (1:10pm) and Women's (3:45pm) games.
