South Adelaide's Reserves recorded their first win of the season with a wire-to-wire victory over Glenelg at ACH Group Stadium on Saturday morning.

The Panthers got off to a fast start and were able to maintain that buffer throughout the game to run out 14.9 (93) to 10.9 (69) winners away from home.

Young ruckman Damon Freitag got South on the board within two minutes as he kicked truly in the opening minutes.

Glenelg's side boasted some serious League experience in the likes of Matthew SnookIan MileraDarcy Bailey and Michael Virgin and Bailey showed his class to quickly reply for the Bays.

However, South's ruck stocks continued to give Glenelg headaches as Cameron McGree added two of his own midway through the term.

Once North Adelaide recruit Brett Kennedy added the Panthers fourth at the 20 minute mark the visitors lead pushed to 20 just before the first break.

New recruit Kyle Emery began to stamp his mark on a best on ground performance as he kicked his first of four goals within a minute of the restart.

Emery was dominant up forward for South, presenting well all afternoon and taking seven strong marks in his 19 touches.

The Panthers forwards enjoyed plenty of supply throughout the morning (50 inside 50s to 39) thanks in large part to the solid play of their backline.

Lee Hoey (17 touches and nine marks) was a pillar in defence, while young Bailey Snelling stood tall under several high balls.

Glenelg continued to push back as they controlled possession of the football (342 disposals to 273), but South's pressure on the ball carrier stopped the weight of numbers converting to anything truly damaging.

South spread the load with nine goal kickers amongst their 14 major scores and even numbers across their major ball winners.

Connor Fairlie was industrious with his 21 touches, while Kennedy (17 possessions) didn't rack up enormous numbers but made the most of each disposal.

After quarter time South were never truly challenged, with Emery's fourth midway through the final term pushing their lead to a game-high 29 points.

It will be an intriguing match up this weekend as South again travel to Glenelg to face the Tigers.

Action gets underway from 10.30am, Saturday, April 13.
