A scoreless second quarter by the Panther Reserves saw them fall to a 33-point loss to the Eagles at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

South Adelaide kicked the first two goals of the game and went into the first break with a 2.2 (14) to 0.3 (3) lead.

However, the Panthers wouldn't score again until the third quarter, during which time the Eagles had kicked eight unanswered goals.

With the Panthers on the back foot, they tried to get back into the game and came close to doing so, with the first four goals of the third quarter.

South Adelaide managed to hold the Eagles to just four more goals after halftime, but the damage was already done, and the Panthers fell to 8.4 (52) to 12.13 (85) defeat.

The signs looked good early when Eamon Wilkinson kicked truly at the twenty-fourth-minute mark to give the Panthers a two-goal lead.

Meanwhile, Tate Coleman was busy around the ground, finishing with 25 disposals, four marks and six tackles as well as nine rebound 50s.

But the Eagles managed to kick six goals in just 11 minutes during the second quarter to give the Panthers a 2.2 (14) to 9.12 (66) deficit at halftime.

The Panthers first goal since the first quarter came when Kyle Emery goaled just four minutes into the third quarter.

The goal began a fightback by the Panthers, with South kicking the first four goals of the third before the Eagles replied with two of their own.

Souths defence held firm after halftime, despite the immense pressure as the Eagles collected 56 inside 50s to Souths 33.

South Adelaide did however manage 43 rebound 50s to the Eagles 25 with Tate Lovering gathering eight rebound 50s as well as 16 disposals and three marks.

Meanwhile, Luke Bogle collected 23 disposals, six tackles and two marks while Brett Kennedy finished with 18 disposals, four tackles and four marks as well as a team high three goals.

The Panthers fightback was stopped by the Eagles with back to back goals midway through the last quarter to set up the 8.4 (52) to 12.13 (85) result.

South Reserves will now face Norwood at Coopers Stadium on Saturday, July 20 from 11:30 am.
