Glenelg’s Camporeale twins – Ben and Lucas – are continuing to have an impact after inspiring their team to a 43-point win in Round 14 of the Torrens University SANFL U18s at Prospect Oval. 

After returning from College duty in the past fortnight, the sons of Carlton premiership wingman Scott Camporeale have been in hot form, racking up 53 disposals between them against the Roosters.

Tiger teammate Tom Corcoran (25 disposals, one goal) was rated as the visitors’ best player while Ben Ridgway (24 disposals, 10 tackles) and Harry Francis (three goals) also made their presence felt.

North’s Hunter Press, Jed Dignan (24 disposals) and Kalan Caputo did their best to prevent their side from trailing at each change before succumbing to a seventh loss of the season.

West Adelaide caused the upset of the season when it toppled premiership pace-setter Central District by 20 points at X Convenience Oval to earn its first win in 2023.

Snapping a 13-game losing streak, the Bloods led at every change in the boilover as they held the Bulldogs to just four behinds in the opening quarter.

Kade Hilton was a defining figure in the visitors’ memorable triumph, kicking 4.4 from his 14 disposals and five marks while Carter Wright and Padrick O’Donoghue (20 disposals) were also lauded by Bloods officials.

Still nestled in second spot on the ladder, the Bulldogs had Lachlan Giles, Sam Sibbick and James Noack fight hard to prevent their team’s shock loss.

A desperate fourth-quarter flurry ensured South Adelaide would prevail over fellow finals contender Sturt by 22 points at Flinders University Stadium.

Leading by just three points at three quarter-time, the Panthers finished strongly to kick 4.2 in the last term while keeping the Double Blues to just 1.1.

South ruckman Taylor Goad was instrumental in his side’s success with 17 disposals, seven clearances, 25 hit outs, six inside 50s and a goal as he helped teammates Tom Wheaton (19 disposals) and Jake Agnew (16 disposals, four goals) have plenty of chances to thrive.

Now joining the Panthers with an 8-6 win-loss record, the Double Blues praised small forward Wil Thomas for his role while also recognising Declan Gladigau (20 disposals) and Loch Rawlinson.


Woodville-West Torrens overcame a goalless first quarter to maintain its place at the top of the table with a 21-point win against Norwood at The Parade.

Managing just five behinds before the first change, the Eagles’ continued to create enough chances on goal despite their inaccuracy resulting in a final tally of 8.16 (64).

Charlie West was a constant presence in the air for the visitors with his 10 marks adding to his 19 disposals and a goal while teammates Jake Andrews and Tate Delmenico were also impressive for the Eagles.

Seventh-placed Norwood will take positives from having five more inside 50s than the ladder-leaders as Connor Butcher (27 disposals, six clearances), Jacob Newton (30 disposals, six clearances) and William Rowlands (23 disposals, one goal) did their best to cause an unlikely result.
