Myrtleford's fourth successive win has kept the pressure on Wangaratta Rovers in the battle for third spot.
It appears the only position up for grabs six weeks out from finals with the Saints winning at home against Yarrawonga 8.13 (61) to 6.6 (42) in heavy conditions.
"The boys stuck to their plan for the four quarters and it was another consistent effort in trying conditions," Myrtleford co-coach Jake Sharp suggested.
The Saints went in undermanned without Kurt Aylett, Nathan Laracy and Ethan Wales, who were all injured in last week's gritty win over Lavington.
Myrtleford has also racked up wins over North Albury and Corowa-Rutherglen and trail Rovers on percentage.
The Saints had eight goalkickers, with defender Brady Sharp again outstanding, while on-baller Mitch Dalbosco and improving Kane Michelini also impressed.
