At the Adelaide Oval last Friday night it was a hard and tough match between Sturt and South Adelaide.  Sturt started strong kicking the first 2 goals of the match before South started to get their act together and were in front at the first break. The Panthers held the lead until the 23rd minute of the final quarter when Sturt finally took the lead.

In a scrappy game it was a battle of defences between Port and West at Alberton Oval.  Despite fine conditions the game was marred by numerous ballups and throw ins which kept the final score low.  At the end of the day the difference between the two teams was Port's defence and dominant dominant center with ruckman Brett Chalmers (23 possesions and 14 marks) and David Brown (32 touches) that was the main difference.

Glenelg, inspired by coach Tony McGuiness pulling on a gurnsey, started strongly against Norwood and should have held a commanding lead at quarter time if they had kicked straight.  In the second quarter though it was all Norwood as they piled on 10 goals to the Bays 1.  Norwood continued on their merry way in the second half and ran out winners by 59 points.

It was a North's teenage brigade which stole the show in the game against the Eagles at Prospect.  Chris Robertson, Joshua Gum (7 goals) and Chris Ladhams (all seventeen years old) have all showed glimpses of potential previously but yesterday they produced 4 quarters of great football.  The Eagles took the lead mid way in the 3rd quarter but then North kicked the next 4 goals and never looked threatened, finally running out winners by 29 points.
