South Adelaide have retained the Mayor's Cup after recording a 42-point victory over Central District at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers rejoined the winner's circle and top five on the SANFL Macca's League ladder thanks to a stout defensive performance and impressive use of a strong breeze in attack, claiming a 13.5 (83) to 5.11 (41) win by the final siren.

After losing the toss, the home side were forced to kick against a strong Noarlunga breeze and lost dedicated defender Tarak Redigolo to some friendly fire in a courageous collision with Jake Veide going back with the flight of the ball in the opening term.

However, the Panthers took a two-point advantage into the first break thanks to two brilliant running efforts from Nick Liddle and Joel Cross and a 55m curling bomb into the wind from Ben Haren.

While the Bulldogs were wasteful with the breeze at their backs in the first quarter, South were able to use the wind to their full advantage, outscoring the visitors 6.4 to 0.1.

The highlights coming from Cody Szust and Nic Schwarz, with the former slotting the first two goals of his SANFL Macca's League career and the latter hitting the scoreboard from deep downtown with the breeze at his back.

The penultimate quarter was more of a dour affair, as the heaven's opened up and Central District struggled to capitalise on the blustery conditions and the Panthers forced to work hard against the breeze.

In his return to the League side, Jake Veide provided two crucial goals in the third term. The most brilliant coming off the back of an electric piece of running play from Richard Newell, as he swept the ball from halfback, took three bounces and found a leading Veide in the pocket.

The arm wrestle continued in the final term, as both sides battled with the deteriorating conditions as much as each other. As the rain came down, the goals dried up, with Adam Gulden providing the Panthers only major score for the quarter.

Nick Liddle was again at his brilliant best at Hickinbotham Oval, gathering a game-high 27 possessions, kicking a goal and handing out four score assists.

At opposite ends of the ground, Haren and Brad Crabb were important contributing and preventing goals respectively, with the latter also adding some height up forward after Sam Overall was forced to the sidelines with a knee ailment.

The aforementioned Veide (17 touches, eight marks, six tackles and two goals) was magnificent upon return in a shutdown role on the dangerous Nick Holman, while his partner in his opening goal, Newell also added an important 21 disposals.

Schwarz made a welcome return to the Panthers engine room after a week in the Reserves, adding 25 touches and seven clearances to his monster goal from the edge of the centre square.

Best for the visitors were Jarrod Schiller (23 touches and six clearances) and Luke Barmby (17 possessions and a goal).

The Panthers next travel to Gliderol Stadium for a pivotal clash with Glenelg next Saturday, July 15.

Round 12 - Hickinbotham Oval - 08/07/17

South Adelaide 4.5 4.6 9.9 11.9 75
Central District 2.0 6.7 7.7 11.10 76

South Adelaide's Reserves suffered a heartbreaking one-point defeat at the hands of Central District at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday afternoon.

In a see-sawing affair that saw both sides enjoying three goal leads at times, the Bulldogs goalled in the final minute of the last quarter to steal a 11.10 (76) to 11.9 (75) nailbiter.

Both sides enjoyed the scoring ascendancy with the wind at their backs, with both teams recording quarters with one goal or less to their names.

The Panthers looked to have set themselves up for victory with a 5.3 to 1.0 third term and when Ryan Need slotted his fourth major towards the end of the fourth quarter the home side was well placed to record fourth consecutive win.

However, two late goals to the Bulldogs, including a back breaker to Matthew Claughton saw the visitors nudge their noses in front just before the final siren.

Tyson Brown (16 touches and a goal) and Peter Rolfe (14 possessions and five clearances) continued to build form in their return from injury.

Meanwhile, speedy Matt Raitt responded well to being sent back from the League side, recording 17 disposals, five clearances and a goal.

Scott Taylor (19 touches and six rebound 50s) was a welcome steadying head in a backline that was equally well served by young key position defender Ben Millman.

Up forward, Bryce Damin also provided a competitive performance, nailing two goals in the process.

The Reserves are next in action against Glenelg from 11:30am, Saturday, July 15 at Gliderol Stadium.
