South Adelaide have booked their place in the SANFL Statewide Super Women's League Grand Final after taking down Norwood on Sunday night.

The Panthers secured their spot at the big dance after using a 5.7 (37) to 1.1 (7) victory to win the minor premiership and automatic qualification.

Next weekend's Preliminary Final between North Adelaide and Norwood will determine who South will face at Peter Motley Oval on ANZAC Day.

Signs looked ominous for the hosts early as Courtney Gum slotted two goals within the first seven minutes of the game.

South continued to work there way well on top, kicking 5.7 without reply.

The Redlegs enjoyed more possessions than the visitors (222 -212), but many came from quick chains of handballs as the Panthers chased down their opponents tenaciously.

Despite the disadvantage in Burley distribution, South still more than doubled Norwood's inside 50 count, getting it forward 38 times to 16.

The Panthers defence again held up brilliantly, not conceding a score of any type until Rebekah Wanganeen hit the post in the final quarter.

In fact, when Lisa-Jane Millard put one through the big sticks for Norwood in the 15th minute of the final term it was the first goal South Adelaide had conceded in 13 quarters of football.

Dashing half-back flanker Cat Williams was fantastic for the visitors, gathering 16 possessions (half of them contested) and even drifting forward for a classy goal.

In the middle of the ground, Anne Hatchard (18 possessions and five clearances) continued her outstanding return to the SANFLW competition and was ably assisted by the grunt of Elyse Haussen (14 and a goal) and speed and pressure of Czenya Cavouras (13 and 12 tackles).

Co-captain Kristi Harvey's 17 disposals and seven marks were also key to the victory as she again imposed her physicality around the ground against her old side.

The Panthers scoreless final term will give mentor Krissie Steen plenty to work on over the extended break before the Grand Final.

However, for now South Adelaide fans can celebrate their side's brilliant minor rounds performance and look forward to their final game for 2018 on ANZAC Day.
