OUYEN United is sweating on X-ray results after gun forward Will Farrer suffered what appeared to be a serious arm injury against Wentworth on Saturday.

Farrer kicked two goals -- taking his season tally to 90 -- before leaving the ground clutching his arm in the second quarter and did not reappear for the Kangas.

The hosts went on to record a 18.22 (130) to 4.6 (30) win, with the club confirming post-game Farrer had left Blackburn Park to undergo an X-ray.

At City Oval, Imperials climbed into third on the ladder with an 86-point thumping of South Mildura.

After a slow start, Imperials booted 13 goals to two in the middle two quarters to blow the game open, running out 21.14 (140) to 8.6 (54) winners.

Key defender Jaidyn Nihill was helped from the ground by trainers in the second term after suffering an ankle injury in a marking contest and played no further part in the game.

Meanwhile, Mildura secured the minor premiership with a hard-fought 12-point win over Robinvale/Euston at John James Oval.

The visitors led by between three and four goals at every change and, despite kicking 1.5 to 3.1 in the final term, the Demons held on to win 12.16 (88) to 11.10 (76).

The Eagles have slipped to fifth as a result.

Elsewhere, Merbein saluted the Kenny Park faithful in their last home game of the year with a 17.17 (119) to 11.10 (76) defeat of Red Cliffs.

The Magpies had seven multiple goal-scorers, led by Joe Cavallo with three, and led at every break to record their fourth win of the season.

A Grade Netball results to come.
