League Report

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Round 10 - Hickinbotham Oval - 04/06/16

South Adelaide 2.4 6.6 10.6 15.9 99
North Adelaide 3.1 5.3 6.5 10.8 68

Goals: Eddy 7, Trembath 4, Barnes, Newell, Hitchcock, Veide
Best: Eddy, Gulden, Bass, Cross, Schwarz, Liddle

South Adelaide have rejoined the winner's circle after taking down a plucky Roosters outfit by 31 points at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The win helped the Panthers extended their unbeaten run at Noarlunga to six games and took their season tally to 7-2.

South now sit hot on the heels of league leaders Sturt, second only on percentage after the Double Blues defeated Adelaide's Reserves at Unley on the same day.

Brad Gotch's men got off to a sluggish start, conceding the first three goals to the visitors before two late goals to Brett Eddy closed the gap to three points at quarter time.

Eddy was one of the catalysts that helped spark the Panthers into life, proving unstoppable up forward with seven goals from his 11 touches and six marks; taking his Ken Farmer Medal-leading tally to 36 (16 clear of second place!).

Through the final three quarters the Panthers looked reminiscent of the team that won their first six games of the season.

They piled on 13.5 to 7.7 in that time, thanks in large part to the play of Eddy and second half goals from Josh Trembath, and despite an arm wrestle of a fourth quarter the result never looked in doubt.

Centurion Jake Veide put the finishing touches on the game, kicking the Panthers' final goal deep into the fourth quarter before being swamped by his teammates. In a fitting finish, the hard-working clubman affectionately known as The Robot found the footy in his hands as the final siren sounded on his 100th appearance for the Panthers.

Adam Gulden was also a driving force in helping build South Adelaide's lead, contributing a game-high 29 possessions and eight inside 50s, while Daniel Bass (21 touches and 25 hit-outs) was a welcome return from suspension.

Meanwhile, the ever reliable duo of Joel Cross (26 disposals and seven clearances) and Nick Liddle (21 touches and seven tackles) were fantastic in the guts. As was Nic Schwarz, who added 25 touches and seven clearances to his breakout season.

One sour note to come from the victory were injuries to Alex Cailotto and Cameron Hitchcock, who will be assessed during the week, but will given an extra week to recover as South have a bye in Round 11.

The Panthers next match comes in two weeks time as they face Port Adelaide at Hickinbotham Oval on June 18. League action gets underway at 1.10pm.

South Adelaide's Reserves enjoyed a thrilling win over North Adelaide, defeating the Roosters by five points at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers were made to work for the victory as North Adelaide found themselves in front at every change before South took the lead for good late into the final term.

Emmanuel Irra capped off his miraculous return from injury with a best on ground performance.

Listed as 3-4 weeks away from recovering from an ankle injury suffered against Norwood in Round Seven, Irra surprised many when he was named for the Round 10 clash against North.

The excitement machine led the Panthers with 27 touches and looked back to his line-breaking best to take out the top votes from Adam Blakely and his coaching panel.

Also playing well, Scott O'Shaughnessy (24 possessions, seven marks and five inside 50s) and Luke Durdin (15 touches and five marks) were strong as the Panthers spine in defence.

Meanwhile, Sam Overall (17 disposals, five marks and a pair of goals) floated well across the ground, while Jackson McMahon (25 possessions, nine marks and a goal) and Cody Szust (11 touches and the winning goal) were important up forward.

In further good news, Nathan Daniel successfully negotiated his return from a knee injury in the twos, collecting 24 touches and grabbing a game-high nine marks.

South's Reserves also have the bye next weekend, before taking on Port Adelaide Magpies Academy from 10.25am on Saturday 18 June.
