The Panthers managed to hold Glenelg in the second to three goals while Jackson Elmes kicked two goals for the home side.

Makoi would go on to finish his promising Panther debut performance with six disposals, 25 hit outs and two tackles.
There were some promising signs for the Panthers as Elmes kicked his third goal of the match.
However, the Tigers would respond with four unanswered goals to finish the quarter and to give the Panthers a 5.4 (34) to 14.8 (92) deficit at the final change.
