It was tough, and at times it wasn't pretty, but Minyip-Murtoa's unbeaten run remains intact after an arm-wrestle of a match against the Warrack Eagles.
The Burras had their backs to the wall and were down by one point at half-time, but rebounded for a blistering 20-minute spell in the third term to set up a tough 14.15 (99) to 9.8 (62) win.
Burras coach John Delahunty said he was proud his team was able to dig in for the contest.
"It was hard-fought, even at half-time, we had to work our way into the game. It took four quarters, which was a great result in the end to get the four points," he said.
"The Warrack Eagles are a really competitive outfit, and I'm not sure if we underestimated them or not. They just pressured us quite well, particularly that first half.
"But, we just managed to get our game style going again and kicked goals at the right times, which was handy."
The Burras were strong out of the blocks and struck first through Jae McGrath. The momentum shifted during the first quarter, but it was the visitors who went into the change of ends with a 12-point lead.
Warrack Eagles coach Ryan McKenzie took the game on in the second-quarter and dragged his side into the lead with a couple of goals.
McKenzie produced one of the highlights of the match, collecting the ball on the half-volley next to the sideline and turning sharply on his left to kick a goal on the run.
The Warrack Eagles leader was well supported by his younger brigade, who were willing runners throughout the day.
"I was really encouraged by the younger players of the Eagles, and they've got a bright future ahead of them. I thought with some of those 16 and 17-year-olds, give them a couple of years and they'll be really great players," Delahunty said.
The Warrack Eagles entered the second half with a slender one-point lead and tested the Burras in the opening stages of the third term.
But the Burras withstood the attack and drew away through the work of their senior players as the quarter progressed.

Brad Inglis bagged six goals in a performance that saw him honoured as his side's best.
"There's a group of guys you can just rely on, and they stood tall at the back end of the game," Delahunty said. "I just thought with our little bit more experience, and our younger brigade has just got that little bit more seniors experience, that got us over the line in the end."
Both sides struggled in the final-quarter as fatigue set in, but quick goals either side of the final break were enough to set up a 37-point win the Burras.
Elsewhere, an eight-goal haul to Riley Lehmann helped the Southern Mallee Giants to a win against Dimboola.
