Sturt 2.0  3.0 3.0 4.0 24

More positive signs from the Panthers second trial match; as a much-improved performance saw South Adelaide defeat Sturt by ten goals on a toasty Thursday night at Flinders University Stadium.

A clear contrast from the previous week, the Panthers used quick ball movement and clean hands around the stoppages to help set up the 13.6 (84) to 4.0 (24) win.

The signs looked good early, with new South Adelaide recruit Sheena Peters (Kenilworth) kicking the first goal of the match.

And it would be another new recruit who would kick the Panthers second goal of the game, thanks to Talia Meyer (Norwood).

Meanwhile, Jaslynne Smith was standing strong down the other end, as she would go on to take three very strong marks in just the opening quarter.

McLaren product Layla Rogers and Panther junior Lauren Clifton were also busy around the stoppages.

But the Panthers still had their hands full, dealing with former Crow Georgia Bevan, who showed why she is still an AFLW prospect.

However, after 11 minutes of play, the Panthers would get their third goal of the game thanks to another new recruit in Kelli Nijhuis.

Nijhuis would go on to kick truly again in the dying stages of quarter, to send South into the first break with a 4.0 (24) to 2.0 (12) lead.

Coming out after the first break, it was Teah Charlton's turn to show her pace on the outside, while fellow Panther product, Indy Tahau was busy crashing the packs.

However, both teams would fail to capitalise on their chances; with Souths only goal for the quarter coming thanks to some great forward pressure by Meyer, who then followed up beautifully to send the Panthers into the main break with a 5.2 (32) to 3.0 (18) lead.

Just three minutes into the third quarter, Elyse Haylock booted South's sixth goal of the game in what was her first hit out for 2020.

With Czenya Cavouras and Meyer continuing to provide the Panthers with plenty of ball movement; South began to take control.

Just six minutes into the quarter and a spin around goal by Jess Kirk saw the Panthers equal the total amount of goals they had kicked the previous week, in just six minutes.

Then Peters followed with back to back goals in the next four minutes; before Kirk booted her second of the game late in the quarter.

Sturt looked as if they were going to get a late goal, but a super tackle by Sam Pratt prevented it and sent South into the final break with a 10.3 (63) to 3.0 (18) lead.

The Panthers opened the final term with back to back points; before Kirk's third shot in just three minutes found the goals.

Charlton then followed up with a beautiful kick to get her first of the game, before Peters kicked truly on the siren to get her fourth of the match, and to hand the Panthers the 13.6 (84) to 4.0 (24).

While it was just a trial, having the new recruits responsible for eight of the Panthers thirteen goals, is a very positive sign heading into the 2020 SANFL StateWide Super Women's League season.

South Adelaide will now enjoy a week off, before facing the Eagles in round one of the SANFLW season on Friday, February 14 at Flinders University Stadium, from 6:30 pm.
