The fight for positions in the top five is heating up after a round full of statement-making victories and surprise results.
While Minyip-Murtoa sits pretty at the top, yet to drop points, the race for the other finals spots is tightening.
Horsham moved into second place with an impressive 40-goal victory against the Southern Mallee Giants.
The Demons raced out to an early lead against the travelling Giants, moving the ball with intent around the court.
Down nine goals at the end of the first term, the Giants faced an uphill battle against one of the league's powerhouses.
The Giants battled hard in their attacking third during the second quarter, with Gemma Lehmann finding Amy Dodds and Steph Thompson in the goal ring with ease.
But, Horsham's stars drew the game away, the Demons entering the half-time break with a 34-21 lead.
A rampant third term solidified Horsham's status as title contenders, as the young side won the quarter 22-4.
Emma Buwalda bagged 12 goals in the term, before taking to the bench for the rest of the game.
Holding an unattainable lead, Horsham experimented with new combinations on the court. Georgie Carberry moved from wing defence into the goal ring, while Olivia Jones notched up more minutes on her return from injury.
Despite Horsham's dominant display, it was a surprise result elsewhere that gifted the Demons second place on the ladder.
An Ararat side, without the services of several key players, was blown away by Dimboola in a high-scoring affair.
On the road, the Rats entered the contest without star sisters Racquel and Monique Scott and Kate Bligh, who is recovering from a torn ACL.
A new-look defensive end held firm against Dimboola's attack in the first quarter but struggled as the game progressed.
The Roos built on their three-goal lead at the end of the first term to run out 62-51 winners.
Nicole Polycarpou was a standout for the home side, scoring 43 goals.
Ararat's loss saw them drop to third place, only four points above the Warrack Eagles.
The Warrack Eagles notched another impressive win at home, dispatching Stawell by 19 goals.
Only five goals separated the two sides at half-time, but the hosts were able to blow the game apart through the work of Sarah Spicer in the middle of the court.
Breathing down the Warrack Eagles neck, however, is the Horsham Saints, who are only four points behind.
The Saints returned from Nhill with a confidence-boosting 41-27 win. Gabby O'Brien and Elly Barnett were honoured as the Saints' best.
