South Adelaide's senior women have continued their winning start to the season after recording a convincing win over Sturt at Hickinbotham Oval on Sunday afternoon.

The Panthers again led at every change and only conceded one goal on their way to a 7.9 (51) to 1.3 (9) victory over the Double Blues.

Both sides struggled to find much continuity to their forward play during the first quarter, with Panthers junior Bronwen Bosley slotting the only major score for the period in the 11th minute.

South Adelaide continued to dominate possession in the second term, as they would all afternoon on the way to a 58% to 42% advantage by the final siren.

The home side swiftly and cleanly moved the ball around the open spaces at Noarlunga, but again struggled to apply an equal amount of scoreboard pressure until Mildura native Elly Davison managed to bend one home for the only goal of the second midway through the term.

However, the second half way a different story, as South started to work their 35 to 11 inside 50 advantage into ticking the scoreboard over.

Bosley and Davison added another goal a piece for the Panthers in the third to push the lead to 25 by the final change - an advantage that could have been even greater if not for some wayward finishing in front of goals.

The final term was much the same, as Elyse Haussen added a pair and Louella McCarthy put one through the middle, as the Panthers dominated the quarter with eight scoring shots to one.

To their credit, Sturt battled all afternoon and finally broke through with a goal to Nicole Barker in the 11th minute of the last - the first goal Krissie Steen's side has conceded all season.

Best afield for the Panthers was McCarthy, who racked up a team-high 20 touches to go with her goal (which could have easily been three if not for hitting the behind post twice), while Haussen backed up her fantastic Round 1 with a solid second half, claiming 15 possessions, two goals and seven tackles.

Speedy Madison Bennett was unlucky to not feature in the scorers list and made her presence felt around the ground with a game-high 11 tackles.

Meanwhile, Mollie Mckendrick (16 touches), Nikki Gore (17 and six tackles) and Davison (17 disposals, six tackles and two goals) also made key contributions on the day.

Following the day's results, South now sit top of the ladder thanks to a healthy percentage and have set up a tantalising top-of-the-table clash with West Adelaide at City Mazda Stadium next Friday night.
