The South Adelaide Under-18s regain second spot following a 23-point victory over West Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The Panthers suffered throughout the match from their inaccuracy in front of goal which saw them kick seven goals and six behinds during the second half, but that proved to be enough to come out on top with a 12.15 (87) to 10.4 (64) win.

Impressive for the Panthers was Max Clifton who finished the match with a team-high 26 touches, while Dylan Brown collected a game-high of 11 tackles.

There was not much to separate the two sides during the opening term, but the Panthers early lead was cut short as the Bloods booted two unanswered goals to hand South Adelaide a narrow 3.2 (20) to 4.0 (24) deficit at the first change.

Liam Nye opened the scoring during the second term to hand the Panthers the lead, but this would be where their inaccuracy would begin to haunt the side. This is because the Panthers next six scoring shots would all be behinds with the next major not coming until Liam Hamilton kicked truly at the eighteenth minute mark.

This inaccuracy left the door open for the Bloods, but the Panthers still held a narrow 5.9 (39) to 5.2 (32) lead at halftime.

The third term would prove to be a lot more efficient for the boys in the blue and white as the side combined for three goals and one behind. But back to back goals by the Bloods would cut South's lead to 8.10 (58) to 7.3 (45) at the final change.

The Panthers looked as if they were home as Brayden Cook and Koby Cockshell both kicked goals within the first six minutes of thee final term. However, the inaccuracy would once again come into play as the Panthers next five scores would all be behinds.

But the Panthers were able to make amends in the closing minutes, as the side traded blows with the Bloods until the final siren signalled the hard-fought, 12.15 (87) to 10.4 (64) win.

The South Adelaide Under-18s now set their sights on Norwood and they will clash with the Redlegs at Coopers Stadium on Saturday September 19, from 11:00am.
