THE Wimmera Football League is set for a scintillating final fortnight of home and away matches.
With all five finals-bound sides fighting for ladder position, three out of the four round 17 fixtures could have a massive bearing on September action.
Dimboola and Horsham will battle it out for the minor premiership tomorrow, with just one game separating the two Wimmera powerhouses.
The Roos travel to Coughlin Park to face an out-of-sorts Horsham Saints, who were given a 67-point touch-up by Horsham at the weekend.
Saints coach Brendan Broadbent said aside from North Ballarat Rebels James Richards and Darcy Tucker, the Saints were likely to have a number of omissions.
He said all reserves players would push for selection.
Third, fourth and fifth positions are still up for grabs, with Warrack Eagles in the box seat with a relatively easy run home.
Tim Inkster's men take on the lowly-ranked Ararat at Alexandra Oval tomorrow, but the Rats have found some form in the past fortnight.
Ararat caused somewhat of an upset, defeating Nhill away from home by 26 points one week after getting within 18 points of knocking off the Demons.
The Eagles have had a rollercoaster season to say the least, but the return of experienced trio Inkster, Ben Spicer and Brad Krahe will give them a welcome boost.
Minyip-Murtoa and Horsham Saints are the other two sides in contention. The Burras host Horsham at Murtoa Recreation Reserve and a win will make things interesting in the race for the all-important double chance.
Horsham RSL Diggers take on Stawell in the final game of the round at Horsham City Oval.
With a match against co-tenant Horsham next week to finish off their season, tomorrow will be the Diggers' last realistic chance to get off the mark in 2013.
While the minor premiership is still available in the Wimmera league, it has been settled for two weeks in the Horsham District Football League.
Kalkee tops the ladder, followed by Laharum and Edenhope-Apsley, which are destined to meet in the qualifying final.
Swifts and Harrow-Balmoral round out the top five and results at the weekend will not change their standings.
Interestingly, it might be the bottom five sides that have more to fight for this week.
The top five are all keen to take momentum into their finals campaigns, but the bottom sides are playing for pride and are out to show potential recruits they can compete.
Natimuk wants to finish the right way against Kalkee, Pimpinio can smell an upset against Noradjuha-Quantong and Taylors Lake is still searching for its first win of the year against Rupanyup.
While the final round might not shape the ladder, it will still reveal a lot about each of the teams.
