In a see –sawing game with just two points the difference with five minutes to go, both sides goaled before a late surge of two quick goals gave Robinvale Euston a win over Irymple at Henshilwood Oval on Saturday.
Scores were level at half time with Irymple 14 points in the lead at three quarter time.
Eagle coach Andrew Richardson led the victory but he had great support from Leon Johnson, Daniel Ludica and Ethan Gill.
Imperials kept their finals hopes alive, being now out of the four on percentage after they took three quarters to shake off bottom side Merbein.
Again the Magpies showed they can be competitive for three quarters.
South Mildura plays in mixed passages but they were totally overpowered by the Ouyen United team which blasted eight goals in the opening term. Former Mildura player Marcus Heaky, who returned to his original side when it joined Sunraysia League kicked nine goals.
The home side was missing the Farrar brothers but Brad Vallance was a welcome return for the home side.
