South Adelaide's senior women ventured to Glenelg for the first time and came away with a win on Friday evening at ACH Group Stadium.


The Panthers dominated possession, finding the Burley 248 times to Glenelg's 183. Their ability to move the ball quickly (129 handballs to 64) helped cut their way through the smaller spaces of ACH Group Stadium, but they struggled to get the ball into dangerous positions inside their forward 50.

As the two sides arm wrestled early on, it took until the sixth minute for the first score of the game, as goal sneak Madison Bennett found herself clear to soccer home her first into an unguarded goal square.

Tall forward Danielle Goding doubled her side's advantage minutes later after finding her opponent holding the ball and converting her set shot from 25m out.

However, Lucy Bellinger responded for the Bays with a calmly slotted set shot of her own in dying stages of the term and South took a six-point lead into the first change.

The Panthers seized control of the game in the second term, moving it forward with greater purpose and managing to put more of a score on the board while holding Glenelg goalless.

Hannah Munyard (game-high 23 touches) and Czenya Cavouras (20 possessions and 12 tackles) were the catalysts for South seizing the ascendancy as they got their hands on the footy.

Vice captain Ely Haussen opened her account for the evening as she trapped her opponent holding the ball and kicked truly from 20m out.

Glenelg did have a chance to get themselves back in the game as they found some momentum and locked the ball inside their forward 50 for a good five minutes, but could only yield three behinds from the time.

However, the Panthers soon stamped their authority on the match.

Bennett again found herself in the right place at the right time to kick one off the deck following a nice centring kick from Haussen and a courageous mark attempt going back with the flight from Mykala Walker-Murphy that brought the ball to ground.

Minutes later Goding found the dangerous Munyard on a lead and her set shot gave South a 24-point advantage as the teams headed for the rooms.



The third term was a dour battle, with Glenelg kicking the only goal for the term.

Skipper Lauren Buchanan did well to control a backline that saw more football than in recent weeks, while first-gamer Brooklyn Kraft almost snagged a nice goal on debut to cap off a solid performance around the stoppages.

Swirly conditions continued to trouble both sides in the final term and it took until the 15th minute for another goal to be scored.

Bennett capped off a solid performance as she snared her third from the goal line, crumbing well again off Walker-Murphy's hands.

The result holds South Adelaide firmly in second place on the ladder, just a win back from the undefeated Norwood.

Round 8 action sees the Panthers return to Glenelg to again face the Tigers at ACH Group Stadium. Action gets underway from 3:45pm on Saturday, April 13th, following Reserves (10:30am) and League (1:10pm) games also against the Bays.
