South Adelaide's Reserves fought hard but were ultimately overcome by Norwood at the Parade on Thursday evening.

The young Panthers fought back from a slow start to lead at halftime, but could not hold off a fast finishing Redlegs outfit and fell to a 9.6 (60) to 11.9 (75) defeat.

South found themselves 21-points down at the first change, with Nathan Beenham's goal the only major score for the Panthers for the term.

However, a blistering five-goal-to-one second quarter all of sudden had the visitors taking a four-point lead to the rooms.

Unfortunately, Norwood steadied and control the final two quarters, outscoring the Panthers 6.4 to 3.3 to claim a 15-point lead.

Ben Heaslip responded well to being sent back to the Reserves, racking up 27 touches, five tackles and five clearances.

Meanwhile, Jaidan Kappler (22 possessions, six tackles and six clearances) also put his hand up for a recall with another strong performance.

Amongst the other handy contributors were Tate Lovering (18 disposals), Brett Kennedy (16 touches, 11 tackles and a goal), Reece Milsom (15 touches and two goals) and Connor Fairlie (18 possessions and a goal).

The Reserves now prepare for Sturt at Unley next Sunday, April 28.
