Norwood has claimed early bragging rights in the first 2018 Grand Final rematch of the 2019 SANFL Statewide Super Women's League season.

The Redlegs avenged their loss to the Panthers in last year's big dance with a two-goal victory at the Parade on Friday evening.

South was dealt an early blow, as key on baller Elyse Haussen was a late withdrawl after failing to complete the warm up and replaced in the side by Natalie Gibbs

The two sides played out another physical affair. Goals proved hard to come by, especially in the first half, but neither side could be questioned about their tenacity and commitment in the clinches.

The attack on the footy from both teams accurately reflecting the budding rivalry that has grown through their previous tightly contested encounters.

South skipper Lauren Buchanan opened the scoring late for the visitors with a calm set shot following a neat Teah Charlton pass deep into the first quarter.

The Redlegs hit back through Hannah Dunn in the second quarter and the two sides headed to the major break deadlocked at eight points a piece. 
 


 

Soccer convert Jess Kirk put South back into the lead with her first goal for the club. Another coolly converted set shot off of a Danielle Goding chip pass.

However, the rest of the quarter belonged to the Redlegs, as they outworked the Panthers to find space on the tight confines of the Parade and pushed themselves into more dangerous scoring opportunities.

Two quick goals to Najwah Allen over the top and one to Monique Hollick put the Panthers precariously down 11 as the teams turned for home.

Young forward Indy Tahau gave South hope, with her first career goal cutting the lead to five with 10 minutes to play.

However, the visitors could not find that final spark of play that could complete their comeback and a counter attack finished off by former Panther Bree Liebhardt in the dying stages would prove to be the sealer.

Young ruck Montana McKinnon (18 touches) fought admirably at the stoppages against one of the competitions best bigs in Leah Cutting.

Meanwhile, fellow talls Brianna Wedding and Danielle Goding held their own at opposite ends of the ground.

The Panthers women now head to Richmond to face West Adelaide next Friday night (7:30pm, March 1).
