Glenelg recorded a sensational 84-point victory over fellow finals contender North Adelaide at Prospect Oval to close the gap on the SANFL U16s top four.

The Tigers kicked the first four majors of the game, then a run of seven unanswered goals helped the Bays establish a 56-point half-time lead.

North had no answers after the main break, as the likes of Koby Moir (31 disposals and 10 clearances), Hudson Earl (five goals) and Jacob McNicol (28 disposals and two goals) ran riot.

Exciting Roosters utility Memphis Webb put in a performance to remember despite the loss, gathering 42 disposals and booting three of his side’s six goals.

South Adelaide proved far too good for West Adelaide, winning to the tune of 101 points at Hisense Stadium.

South took the lead early before a 12-goal-to-two second half saw the home side gain a valuable percentage-boosting victory.

The Panthers forwards had a day to remember, with Kody Shortridge, Harrison Davey and Angus White each kicking four goals.

For West, Laurence Andriani and Ryan McAulay both gathered 29 disposals and were industrious at the stoppages.

Sturt made it four wins on the trot with a strong 74-point victory over Norwood at The Parade.

The Double Blues always looked in control and the grunt work of Angus Mills and Will Ekberg helped the visitors dominate the inside-50 battle 46 to 27.

Lachie Werts capitalised in attack by booting five goals and teammates Ryan Davies, Taj Garrett and Tom Lindsay each kicked two.

Kai Ivins was the Redlegs’ best with 21 disposals, nine tackles and a goal.

Central District continued on its merry way by extending its winning streak to eight games with a 69-point triumph over Woodville-West Torrens at X Convenience Oval.

A dominant first quarter paved the way for the win, with dangerous Bulldogs forward Jesse Paul and Jermaine Miller both having a strong impact on the game.

The Central ruck duo of Callan and Hugo Semmler provided first use to their onballers all day, winning a combined 45 hit-outs.

Miller finished with 25 disposals and three goals while Jack Leys (25 disposals) and Khye Maddern (19 disposals and a goal) stood up for the Eagles.
