South Adelaide's senior women created history on Friday evening, claiming a maiden victory in their SANFL Statewide Super Women's League debut thanks to a shutout performance against Glenelg.

The Panthers powered their way to a wire-to-wire victory over the Bays thanks to their tenacious pressure and superior ball movement, registering a historic 5.4 (34) to 0.6 (6) win to kick-start their season.

South were relentless in pressuring the Tigers ball carriers across all four quarters, holding the visitors scoreless in two quarters and without a goal for the entire match.

In a pulsating first term, young gun Hannah Munyard sent a packed Jimmy Deane's Grandstand wild as she opened the scoring with a silky shot on the run after breaking clean from a forward 50 stoppage.

Minutes later, basketball convert Mollie Mckendrick added a second after marking strongly and kicking truly to push the lead to 15 at the first break.

The Tigers did not register a score until the fifth minute of the second term. And while they had more scoring shots, it was South's Madison Bennett slipping out the back at the northern end that would slot the only major for the quarter.

The Panthers enjoyed the majority of the play again in the third, as Krissie Steen's women locked the ball in their forward half of the ground for much of the term, as they did for most of the match, winning the inside 50 count 31 to 18.

South consistently earned first use of the footy thanks to the strong tap work of Mckendrick and Panthers junior Montana McKinnon, who won the hit out battle 39 to 14.

However, South struggled to convert the dominance of the play into dominance on the scoreboard, with Lucy Northcott kicking the only goal of the term after taking a strong pack mark over two Glenelg defenders at the top of the goalsquare.

The Tigers pressed hard for a breakthrough goal in the final term, coming agonisingly close with a snap shot that hit the post, but it was speedy Panthers defender Cheyenne Hammond that put the result beyond doubt with the only goal of the fourth to secure the two points for her side on a historic day at Hickinbotham Oval.

On baller Elyse Haussen was in fine form in the clinches for the Panthers, gathering a game-high 22 possessions and laying six tackles, while the exciting young Munyard (17 touches and a goal) will be one to watch this season.

The speed of co-captain Lauren Buchanan and Hammond rebounding out of defence was also a highlight, while Tonia Fielke (14 disposals and seven tackles) and Kristi Harvey (18 touches) imposed their physicality around the ground.
