League Report

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Round 15 - Gliderol Stadium - 09/07/16

South Adelaide 3.3 8.6 9.9 9.10 64
Glenelg 3.3 5.4 9.6 11.8 74

Goals: Ellison 2, Cross, Barnes, Eddy, Seccull, Overall, Bass, Gulden
Best: Seccull, Fields, Rose

South Adelaide suffered a disappointing 10-point defeat to Glenelg at Gliderol Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Panther enjoyed several periods of dominance in the first half, including a stretch of three unanswered goals in the first quarter and five without reply in the second term.

However, they could never fully shake the resilient Tigers and took a modest 20 point lead into halftime.

When Joel Cross sent his first goal of the game sailing between the big sticks at the five minute mark of the third quarter, South pushed their lead to 28 and had the game on a knifes edge.

Unfortunately for the Panthers, this would be their last major score of the game, as Glenelg outscored them 6.4 to 1.4 in the second half and were held to just a single behind in the final term.

Despite the loss, South maintain their hold of third spot on the ladder and only a win behind league leaders Woodville-West Torrens and Sturt, who are equal on points. However, Adelaide Crows are now hot on the Panthers heels in fourth after breaking Sturt's 10-game winning streak at Thebarton Oval over the weekend.

On a dirty day for South there were not many winners.

However, tough midfielder Brede Seccull can hold his head high after delivering one of only a few four quarter efforts for the day.

In his second consecutive best on ground performance, the recent 50-gamer recorded a team-high 24 touches, laid a team-high eight tackles, booted a team-high seven inside 50s and kicked a goal.

Defensive duo Tom Fields (16 possessions) and Matt Rose (20) were also amongst South's best.

Second-gamer Codey Ellison was the Panthers most prolific forward, slotting two goals, including a difficult set shot from the pocket.

Glenelg seized control of the game in the second half thanks to their dominance around the stoppages, winning the possession count 319 to 263 and clearances 44 to 30.

Meanwhile, usual ball magnets Joel Cross (11 disposals), Nick Liddle (eight) and Jake Veide (11) were not as dangerous as Panthers fans have come accustom to in recent seasons.

The Tigers also out-tackled South 73 to 69 despite seeing more of the ball, which indicates their greater hunger for the contest.

Inaccuracy in front of goal from usual "Dead-eye Dick", Brett Eddy (1.3), and quiet days from likely goalkickers Rigby Barnes (1.0), Sam Overall (1.1) and Jackson McMahon (0.0) did not help South's chance. However, losing the inside 50 count 37 to 48 did not do the Panthers forwards any favours.

On a positive note, South got through the game without injury and can expect Cameron Hitchcock to return to football after the bye. Meanwhile, Nic Schwarz made a successful return from a head injury with the League team and Ben Haren (calf), Alex Cailotto (ankle) and Cameron de Visser (concussion/hand) all completed their duties in the Reserves without injury.

South Adelaide now enjoy a week off to regroup, recover and reset, thanks to the bye, before tackling Central District at Hickinbotham Oval the following Saturday (July 23). Make sure you get along to support the boys. League action gets underway from 2.10pm

Reserves Report

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Round 15 - Gliderol Stadium - 09/07/16

South Adelaide 2.2 4.4 6.7 11.8 74
Glenelg 0.3 3.5 7.7 12.12 84

Goals: Trembath, Newell 3, Szust, Heaslip, Fairlie, Kokkinakis, Wray
Best: de Visser, Haines, Newell, Millman

South Adelaide's Reserves were unable to close out a tough contest against Glenelg at the Bay on Saturday afternoon, falling by 10 points.

The Panthers held a five-point lead at halftime against the Tigers.

However, Glenelg came out firing after the long break, outscoring the visitors 9.7 to 5.4 in the second half.

Cameron de Visser was best on ground for the Panthers. The heavily inked defender looking fully recovered from the concussion and hand issues that have kept him off the field in recent weeks.

Ably assisting de Visser in defence was Ben Millman, who performed well in his second game for the Reserves in 2016.

Meanwhile, the usual suspects of Joseph Haines and Richard Newell were also amongst South's best in the Panthers engine room.

The Reserves still hold their position of fifth on the ladder and next face eighth-placed Central District at Hickinbotham Oval from 11.25am Saturday July 23.
