The under 18s took on the undefeated Panthers on Sunday at Hickinbotham Oval and lost the game by 28 points. After a bit of a slow start with South leading by 20 points at quarter time, a very good second quarter allowed us to get back into the game and go in at half time leading by 8 points. South played very well in the third quarter and kicked 4 goals 6 points whilst holding us scoreless. Despite kicking 3 goals in the last quarter, South were a bit too good for us and ran out comfortable winners.
Thomas Carter did well in defence, Will Schultz kicked 3 goals up forward and gained a few possessions around the ground, Kai Pudney and Nick Moore battled hard in the midfield, and Chris Schwarz and Marty Frederick were also solid in a defence under pressure for most of the day.
With the competition bye we can reset and prepare for our next challenge which will be Glenelg at Maughan Thiem Hyundai Oval on 24 June.
