A sensational smother from Sturt’s Abby Pengelly was enough to orchestrate a dramatic draw against Glenelg at Adelaide Oval.

With just 100 seconds remaining in the game, Pengelly blocked the kick of Glenelg’s Ellie Kellock which caused it to result in a chain of handballs before teammate Alysha Healy kicked truly to tie the scores at 39 each.

The Tigers – who had five more scoring shots – were well led by skipper Kellock, who racked up 21 disposals, seven tackles and six clearances while Lucy Armitage had 14 possessions and a goal.

Sturt’s Jaimee Wittervan led the way for her team with 19 disposals and seven tackles while Kate Harris had 16 possessions and seven clearances.
