The first matches played on Kaniva's new hockey field were overshadowed by inclement weather on Saturday, but round 13 of the Wimmera Hockey Association season still gave some interesting results.
The Nhill Rangers continued their impressive run towards the finals with a win over Horsham Hurricanes in the Open competition, while the Dimboola Roos kept their dream of finishing on top of the ladder with a win over Kaniva.
Having confirmed a place in the finals, the Nhill Rangers are playing some impressive hockey.
On this occasion, they registered a five-goal victory over the Horsham Hurricanes.
The balance of this game swung, with first Nhill then Horsham controlling the play, but by the end of the first half it was the Rangers who had gained the advantage with three goals.
The Hurricanes attacked strongly in the second half.
Although Nhill was able to increase the lead to five goals, Horsham never gave up and fought the game out to the end.
The Kaniva Cobras debuted their new field with a game against the Dimboola Burras.
However, the Cobras did not enjoy any advantage as the conditions were not favourable to a quick, free-flowing game.
Both teams still put on an entertaining exhibition of hockey, which finished in a five-goal win to the Burras.
The points were shared when the game between the Yanac Tigers and Warrack Hoops was cancelled.
Nhill Thunderbirds have confirmed they will go into the finals in third place after a solid two-goal victory over the Horsham Jets.
This leaves the latter team teetering on the brink of missing the finals, unless they can win their next two games and rely on other favourable results.
Horsham enjoyed most of the play early in the game, and it was a converted penalty corner against the flow of play by Caitlyn Rowe of the Thunderbirds that began the scoring.
The Jets' side continued to control the play, but still went into half time one goal behind.
Nhill controlled more of the play after the break but it was an impressive solo run by Ellie Murden to outrun the defenders and take on the goal keeper to score her team's second goal.
They continued to attack for the remainder of the game, but the Jets held them out and prevented any further scoring.
Dimboola Roos continued their good form as they roll towards the finals with a three-goal win over Kaniva.
Warracknabeal was not able to assemble a team to take on Yanac and forfeited its game.
