West Wyalong has taken out a low scoring clash with Leeton to stay only a win behind top spot with a 14-4 win at Ron Crowe Oval on Sunday afternoon.
The West Wyalong side was able to take the lead just after the 10-minute mark of the first half as Tim Dore found his way across the line.
It wasn't long before Leeton got their first points of the afternoon with Adam Twigg scoring the visitors only points for the day just four minutes later.
The Mallee Men were able to extend their lead just before the break with a try with just a minute before the halftime siren.
With 13 minutes gone in the second half, the Mallee Men got out to a 10-point lead as Braiden Jones got across before Mitchell Pettit wrapped up the points for the home side with a try just before the halfway mark of the second half.
The win means the Mallee Men are still in the hunt for the minor premiership alongside the Yanco-Wamoon Hawks who picked up 32-18 win over the Magpies in Hay.
Meanwhile, the loss for the Greens means that they still aren't assured of their place in the finals as they are eight points ahead of the sixth-placed Black and Whites with four games remaining.
The Mallee Men take on Waratahs next weekend while Leeton has the bye.
