A goal in the dying seconds sees the South Adelaide U18s suffer a heartbreaking one goal loss against Sturt at Peter Motley Oval on Saturday.

The Panthers led at every change but were unable to hold off a fast-finishing Sturt, who kicked a goal with just four seconds left on the clock to hand South Adelaide the 11.3 (69) to 11.9 (75) loss.

Matthew Roberts (22 disposals) gave the Panthers a dream start as he booted two goals within the opening three minutes of the match, but the Double Blues were able to reel in the visitors and at the first change, South held a narrow 4.1 (25) to 3.1 (19) lead.

The second term saw a shoot-out between the two sides, as they traded blows with three goals apiece within the first twenty minutes of the quarter, two of which were kicked by Liam Hamilton (ten disposals).

But a late goal by Phoenix Spicer (19 disposals) handed the Panthers a very handy 8.2 (50) to 6.3 (39) buffer at the main break.

The third term saw the two sides once again trade blows, and once again South Adelaide booted the final goal of the quarter, this time via Jason Horne (23 disposals), which gave the Panthers a 10.3 (63) to 8.5 (53) lead at the final break.

However, the home side mounted a comeback in the final term with two goals within the first ten minutes, which were separated by Spicer's second and South's final goal of the match.

Sturt continued to pepper the goals but could only manage three behinds, the last of which tied the scores.

With seven minutes still left, the Panthers managed to hold the Double Blues right up until the dying seconds of the game, with their late goal making it practically impossible for South Adelaide to reply.

The siren sounded moments later to signal the heartbreaking 11.3 (69) to 11.9 (75) defeat.

The fourth-placed Panthers now face the bottom-placed Bloods at Hisense Stadium on Saturday July 25, from 11:30am
