Reserves Match Report

South Adelaide vs Central District
Round 1 - Flinders University Stadium - 30/03/19

South Adelaide 3.0 5.1 8.7 8.9 57
Central District 4.2 8.4 9.4 14.7 91


Goals: McGree 3, Sladojevic, Freitag 2, Emery
Best: McKinnon, Emery, Baker, McGree, Freitag

A fourth quarter blitz from Central District condemned South Adelaide's Reserves to a 34-point defeat at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers did well to claw back a 21-point deficit at halftime to trail by less than a kick as the sides turned for home.

However, the Bulldogs kicked five unanswered goals in the final term to had South an 8.9 (57) to 14.7 (91) defeat.

New recruit Kyle Emery, who was lively with 15 touches and 11 marks for the day, got the hosts off to a perfect start, kicking the opening goal of the season within three minutes.

Sadly it would prove to be South's only lead for the game, as Central District kicked four of the next six goals to lead by eight at the first break.

South's two additional majors for the term came from emerging ruckman Cameron McGree (three goals and 14 hit outs), who has formed a strong partnership at the stoppages with Kangaroo Island product Damon Freitag (two goals) throughout the Panthers trial game phase.

The second term also belonged to the Bulldogs, as they doubled the hosts score for the term.

South did manage two goals through Under-18 Daniel Sladojevic, but faced a 21-point margin as they headed to the rooms.

After the break, the momentum began to shift the Panthers way.

Jesse McKinnon firmed his case for South Adelaide's best afield, as he marched his way to 23 touches, six clearances and six tackles.

Meanwhile, Aiden Baker and his backline held firmer against each wave of Bulldogs attacks.

Inaccuracy would prove to be South's biggest enemy. They registered six behinds before slotting three goals to bring themselves within a kick.

South almost nudged their noses in front, but Lee Hoey'running shot on goal missed the mark moments before the three quarter time siren. 

Despite the Panthers charge in the third, the momentum would swing back the Bulldogs way as they kicked away (5.3 to 0.2) to seal a win away from home.

This weekend the Reserves battle Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium from 10am, Saturday, April 6.
