Sturt made it five wins from five Torrens University SANFL U16 games by defeating Central District by 80 points in a Wigan Oval blitz.

The well-drilled Double Blues took control early and didn’t let the foot off the pedal, keeping the Bulldogs goalless after half-time while compiling 10 goals of their own.

The on-ball duo of Noah Roberts-Thomson (28 disposals and ten marks) and Jackson Moody (25 disposals and eight clearances) was dominant in the middle as the home side sent an ominous message to the rest of the league.

Sturt’s Angus Mills and Kyle Staker both booted three goals, with Naite Slade nailing two and six players managing singles.

Joshua Reichelt (27 disposals and 13 rebounds) and big man Aidan Schubert (two goals and three contested marks) flew the flag for Central.

The brilliance of North Adelaide midfielders Sam Cumming and Blake Oudshoorn-Bennier helped the Roosters to a 32-point triumph over Norwood at Prospect Oval.

Cumming managed a game-high 37 disposals, two goals and a mammoth 14 clearances and Oudshoorn-Bennier picked up 36 touches and 10 inside 50s in the win.

The Roosters were also well-served by Hugh Marshall and Lachlan Faulkhead, who booted three goals, as four North players kicked two.

Robert Varcoe kicked four goals for Norwood, with Jack Hayter and Jeff Rozenbilds both managing 25 disposals.

Glenelg rode the momentum of a terrific start to knock off Woodville-West Torrens by 36 points at Stratarama Stadium.

The Bays booted four goals before the Eagles finally hit the scoreboard nearly eight minutes into the second term thanks to Freddie Wilson.

Glenelg had an even spread of contributors, with Luke Candy the Tigers’ most prolific with 26 touches and four clearances and Ned McCarthy and Reed Francis-Nia Nia booting two apiece.

Woodville-West Torrens ball magnet Jack Cook continued his strong start to the year by accumulating 34 disposals and six marks in the loss.

South Adelaide got back onto the winners list with a 43-point victory over West Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium.

After a tight, low-scoring start, the Panthers kicked four unanswered goals in the third term to break open, and effectively seal, the game.

The consistent Jesse Nye was prolific for South, gathering 28 disposals, eight marks and eight tackles in a well-rounded display, as teammate Cain Florance booted three goals.

West Adelaide’s Patrick Amber accumulated 26 disposals and five clearances in his side’s defeat.
