South Adelaide's Reserves stormed home to steal a thrilling victory against Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors played from in front for the majority of the game, but let the Tigers back into the contest in the final term.

However, the young Panthers showed great resilience to claw their way back and kick the final three goals of the game to pinch a 9.8 (62) to 7.16 (58) win.

South got out of the blocks the quick of the two sides, with Brett Kennedy opening the scoring five minutes into the first quarter.

Both teams traded goals before Tarik Illingworth's second major of the term opened up a 13-point buffer for the visitors at the first change.

As the League side prepared to celebrate Brad Crabb's 200th SANFL game, it was two other Kangaroo Island products in Tate Lovering (20 touches) and Coby Helyar (21 disposals, eight tackles and a goal) that were the catalysts for the Reserves strong showing.

South pushed out to a 20-point lead midway through the second, but Glenelg continued to hang on and slotted the last two goals of the half to bring the margin back to six points.

The third was a similar arm wrestle, with both sides spraying shots at goal. Lee Hoey provided the only major score for the Panthers before Timmy Sumner cut the difference to three in the final minute of the term.

It set up a grandstand finish for two sides that had last played each other only a week ago. South confident in capturing another win and Glenelg pushing hard to amends for their performance in Round 2.

Glenelg started the final stanza with their tails up, kicking the first two goals to grab their first lead since the 10th minute of the first term.

However, goals to Jaidan Kappler and Daniel Sladojevic drew scores level with six minutes to play.

The Tigers nudged their noses in front with two behinds, but it would be another Kangaroo Island native that would stand the tallest.

Big Damon Freitag kicked his first for the afternoon at the opportune moment to give his side a four-point lead. One they would not relinquish in the tense final moments.

One sour note from the win was tough forward Anthony Biemans re-injuring his hamstring in the first quarter in his first game back from the same ailment.

The win elevates the Panthers into fourth on the Reserves ladder.

The Reserves now prepare for a short turnaround to face Norwood at the Parade this Thursday evening.

Action gets underway at Coopers Stadium from 4:40pm, Thursday, April 18.
