Round 6 - Flinders University Stadium - 04/05/19

South Adelaide 2.1 5.2 8.3 9.5 59
West Adelaide 6.3 8.4 10.6 14.8 92

Injuries: Beenham (ankle)

South Adelaide's Reserves fell to a 33-point defeat at the hands of West Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers let the Bloods off the chain in the first quarter and were never able to reel back the lead, eventually falling to a 9.5 (59) to 14.8 (92) defeat.

South did claw their way back in the third term to cut the lead as low as seven points, but a 4.2 to 1.2 final stanza from West put the game away.

Young defender Jonty Manuel was best afield for the Panthers, gathering 18 touches and marshalling a backline that was at times under repeat pressure.

Ruckman Cameron McGree also continued his strong start to the season, leading all comers with 24 touches to go with eight clearances, 19 hit outs and a goal.

Meanwhile, Robert Badger played an important shutdown role and Hayden Sampson (20 possessions and six tackles) responded well to his return to the Reserves.

Sadly, young forward Nathan Beenham is also set for some time on the sidelines after injuring his ankle during the game.

Despite the loss, the Reserves remain fifth on the ladder and a game ahead of sixth-placed Sturt.

This weekend, there is a competition-wide bye, with South's next contest coming against North Adelaide at Prospect Oval from 11:30am, Saturday, May 18.
