Dimboola claimed a major scalp in Wimmera Netball Association at the weekend with an 18-goal win over Warrack Eagles.
The Eagles remain just above the Roos on the ladder in third spot.
With Olivia Jorgensen and Billie-Jo Barber forming a formidable duo in goals, Dimboola looks to be asserting itself as the countdown for the finals begins.
While this week’s match against Nhill should go the Roos’ way, they need to win a couple more games to kick Warrack down a step on the ladder.
Warrack Eagles’ task at the weekend will not be easy when they face ladder-leader Horsham.
Prime performances by young goalie Ella Bibby and defender Kiani Stewart couldn’t save them last week, and if Horsham is at full strength, it will be a Herculean task.
Georgia Duncan is back in form in goals for Horsham, and partnered with Keely Pope on the weekend to sneak a narrow win over Horsham Saints.
Horsham was without young guns Emma Buwalda, Alexandra Hiscock and Georgia Hiscock, who are part of a Wimmera under-17s team that competed in Melbourne on Sunday, but should retain a full playing list for this game.

Following another narrow loss, this time to Stawell, the Ararat Rats travel to Coughlin Park in Horsham to take on Horsham Saints.
Despite the loss, the Rats put in a full-team performance at the weekend, and came within two goals of Stawell in the final quarter before Stawell scored crucial goals.
