Minyip-Murtoa and Horsham are locked in a two-horse race for the minor premiership, with only four points separating the two sides after convincing wins at the weekend.
The top spot was up for grabs heading into round 16, as league leaders Minyip-Murtoa came up against a formidable Warrack Eagles outfit.
An injury cloud hung over the Burras before the contest, with several key figures a doubt to take to the court.
Any uncertainties were quickly brushed aside in a fighting first-quarter performance, the Burras holding a 12-9 lead at the first break.
The Warrack Eagles rebounded in the second term as both sides struggled to draw away.
Sarah Spicer was industrious in the middle of the court and helped claw the deficit back to one goal heading into the second half.
Spicer's performance saw her named the Eagles' best for the fourth time in the past five games.
The Burras returned to form in the third quarter, winning the term 15-8.
The visiting Eagles threatened a comeback in the final quarter but left their run too late, with Minyip-Murtoa holding out, 47-37.
Kirby Knight was named the Burras' best, adding 42 goals to her already impressive haul this season.
Horsham, meanwhile, coasted to victory against Nhill to continue to add pressure to the Burras at the top of the table.
The two sides' contrasting seasons showed in the 75-11 final scoreline.
Emma Buwalda was a threat all day for the Demons and collected an imposing 58 goals.
Minyip-Murtoa holds a four-point buffer over second-place Horsham but would need to win both remaining games to be sure of claiming an elusive minor premiership.
The Demons' percentage of 177 would see them finish on top if the two sides finish level on points.
The Burras, arguably, have the easier run home of the two sides, coming up against Nhill and Ararat.
