Reserves Match Report
SANFL Trial 2
Flinders University Stadium - 16/03/19
Goals: Hall 3, Freitag, Sladojevic 2, Beeche, Emery
South Adelaide's Reserves couldn't contain a fast-finishing Roosters side and fell to a 28-point loss at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The young Panthers were playing their first trial as a unit after a mixed team with the League side ran out against the Magpies the week prior and got off to a fast start.
Joel Beeche opened the scoring for the hosts just minutes into the game following a clever snap in traffic, before Jayden Hall snapped home his first of three goals for the game.
Under-18 Daniel Sladojevic marked strongly and converted his first shortly after and Hall had a second after an accurate set shot.
North's Strato Agorastos pulled two back for the visitors and South took a 17-point lead into the first change.
However, the second term was all North Adelaide, as they slammed home 7.1 to 1.2 and took a three goal lead into the sheds.
The Panthers did fight back in the third term, edging the quarter 2.3 to 2.2.
Young ruckman Damon Freitag imposed himself on the contest with some strong body work at the stoppages, working in tandem with Cameron McGree.
Meanwhile, Freitag and Sladojevic provided a strong marking presence up forward, which was soured only by some inaccurate finishing in front of the sticks (kicking 2.3 each).
Meanwhile, Under-18s graduates Darnell Tucker, Reece Milsom and Tarik Illingworth impressed with their ball use throughout the contest.
The final term again belonged to the Roosters, as South struggled to contain their strong marking forwards.
The seconds will have their final tune up before the season proper against Woodville-West Torrens this Saturday morning.
Action gets underway at 10:30am and is following by the League side's final trial (1:10pm) and Round 5 of the SANFL Statewide Super Women's League (3:45pm - also against the Eagles).
