The South Adelaide Reserves continue their run of success with another come from behind win; this time against Central Districts at X Convenience Oval on Saturday.

In a similar fashion to the win over Glenelg last week, the Panthers booted five goals to the Bulldogs one in the final quarter to set up the narrow 12.7 (79) to 13.6 (84) victory.

The Panthers started the better out of the two sides, however, a costly second quarter saw them trail by four goals at halftime.

The win keeps the South Adelaide Reserves chances of making finals alive; as they currently sit just one win out with two matches left to play.

The first goal of the game came through Luke Bogle who would go on to collect 26 disposals, seven marks, ten tackles, and five clearances by the time the game had ended.

What followed was a first-quarter shoot out between the two sides.

However, three goals by Tarik Illingworth (13 disposals and six marks) which included two goals in two minutes; sent the Panthers into the first break with a 4.2 (26) to 3.1 (19) lead.

Coming out after the first break, Central District kicked three goals in ten minutes before the Panthers could steady through a goal by Jesse McKinnon.

McKinnon would go on to collect 27 disposals, four tackles and nine clearances in an impressive display.

However, the home side managed to kick another three unanswered goals in the last seven minutes of the quarter; giving the Panthers a four-goal deficit at the main break.

With plenty of work to do in the third quarter; the game broke into a struggle with the first goal of the second half coming by the Bulldogs at the eleventh-minute mark.

McKinnon was able to respond with his second and Joshua Rosman (15 disposals and seven marks) followed with his first of the game.

Sam Whitbread (19 disposals, six marks, and four tackles) managed to kick his first goal of the game as well; however, a late goal by the Bulldogs put the deficit to two goals at the last break.

Illingworth booted his fourth goal of the game to start the last quarter before Cam McGree (12 disposals and 22 hit outs) joined the long list of goalkickers.

Bogle kicked his second goal of the game. Then two goals in two minutes by Kyle Emery (18 disposals, eight marks, and seven tackles) gave the Panthers a valuable two-goal buffer.

A late goal by the Bulldogs saw the lead drop to single digits with a minute of play left; however, the Panthers were able to hold on and keep their final dreams alive.

The South Adelaide Reserves now face North Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium on Sunday, August 18 from 11:30am.
