South Adelaide's senior women's have returned to the winner's list after grinding out a hard-fought tussle against Norwood on Saturday afternoon.

With both sides playing a physical brand of footy and goals hard to come by, the Panthers sealed a 2.4 (16) to 0.3 (3) victory thanks to two goals in two minutes midway through the final term.

Co-captain Kristi Harvey broke the three-quarter stalemate with an accurate set shots, following a clean chain of handballs from youngsters Madison Bennett and Jaslynne Smith and a deft leading kick from last week's Powerade Star Search nominee Nikki Gore.

Gore was again involve for the Panthers second as she delivered another precise forward entry - this time to a leading Louella McCarthy, who wheeled around and hammered home what would prove to be the sealer.

The win sees South Adelaide retain top position on the SANFL Statewide Super Women's League ladder and sets up yet another top-two challenge for Krissie Steen's women as they prepare to face North Adelaide in Round 6.

Despite the low scoring nature of the game, both the Panthers and the Redlegs displayed some brilliant passages of play and were hard at the contest for all four quarters.

Key defender Nicole Mark marshalled the Panthers backline brilliantly.

The Panthers back six held their opponents goalless for the second time this seasons, with Mark contributing a team-high 21 touches to go with six marks and five tackles.

Fellow defenders Smith (20 possessions and five tackles), Lisa Whiteley (19 and six) and Stacey Huddleston (16 disposals) also played key roles in keeping the determined Redlegs out of the goal umpires' notebook.

Up forward McCarthy fought hard for her 17 possessions and was the Panthers most dangerous forward throughout the afternoon.

Once again young gun Gore showcased her class at the Parade, making the most of her 14 touches and setting up both South Adelaide goals.
