The finalists look set, the favourites clear; all that's left to do is wait.
The end of the Ballarat Football Netball League A Grade season may be delayed, but it still shapes to be exciting.
North Ballarat remains the only unbeaten team in the competition and is looking to take momentum into its push for a third-consecutive premiership.
Three sides in the top six can only be separated by percentage, making every game important.
Ballarat remains in the picture but may just be hampered by any changes to the fixture*.
Who is going to survive the fight? The Courier has dived into every club's run home.
8 wins, 1 draw, 38pts, 146.05 per cent
North Ballarat is firm favourite for a third-straight premiership but a draw to Melton South was a timely reminder of no side's perfection.
Annie McCartin's group remains the only unbeaten team in the competition - a record that is likely to stand, depending on any potential fixture changes.
Three final rounds against fellow top-six sides loom as either massive tests or bullets dodged.
Run home: Darley (A), Bacchus Marsh (A), East Point (H), Redan (H), Melton South (H)
6 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss 32 pts, 132.53 per cent
One of the season's big improvers, the Panthers have been left to rue split seconds with two draws to their name.
Melton South is one of the best sides in the back-end of the court and uses its physicality and defensive pressure to overpower its opponents.
The run home poses some challenges, and the Panthers will be hoping to avoid a trip to North Ballarat if the fixture is changed.
Run home: Sebastopol (A), Ballarat (H), Melton (H), North Ballarat (A), Redan (A)
6 wins, 3 losses, 28 pts, 129.84 per cent
East Point's defence is elite, there's no questioning it.
The Roos have conceded the least amount of goals in the competition, but it's the jitters at the attacking end that need to be fixed if last season's grand finalists want to go better.
East Point is the fourth-lowest scoring side and boasts outputs of 66 and 61 per cent shooting accuracy in its past two games. Easier games on paper should be a good chance to rectify that.
Run home: Redan (H), Sunbury (A), North Ballarat (A), Ballarat (H), Lake Wendouree (A)
6 wins, 3 losses, 28 pts, 126.06 per cent
An already impressive campaign was given extra motivation by the late-season announcement that Katie Williams would be stepping aside after four years as coach.
The Lakers will want to send her off well, and the fixture should help them do that.
A match against the winless Sunbury is first off the ranks, and should offer confidence for whatever may come.
Run home: Sunbury (A), Sebastopol (A), Bacchus Marsh (A), Redan (H), East Point (H)
6 wins, 3 losses, 28 pts, 114.85 per cent
Eight points clear of Ballarat in seventh, Sebastopol could be one of the side's most affected by any potential changes to the fixture.
The Burra's next two games are against fellow finals sides, Melton South and Lake Wendouree.
The rounds most at risk of being abandoned have Sebastopol scheduled to play sides in the bottom four. The Burra shouldn't slip out of finals from here, but it could be a nervous wait.
Run home: Melton South (H), Lake Wendouree (H), Sunbury (A), Melton (H), Darley (H)
5 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw, 1 loss 26 pts, 109.29 per cent
The first game back threatens to be a mini-final for the Lions.
A loss won't sink them out of the top six, but would leave them only two points clear.
Unlike Sebastopol above it, Ballarat could be helped by any potential changes to the fixture.
In North Ballarat, Lake Wendouree and Melton South, the Swans play three of the top four sides to close the season.
Run home: East Point (A), Darley (A), North Ballarat (A), Lake Wendouree (A), Melton South (H)
4 wins, 6 losses, 20 pts, 108.64 per cent
The Swans are guaranteed four points on the season's return thanks to the bye.
It will bring them to within two points of the top six - should Redan lose to East Point in the first round back - and keep the finals dream alive.
However, Ballarat's hopes rest on what happens to the fixture and how many rounds are potentially lost. The ship may have sailed.
Run home: Melton South (A), East Point (A), Sunbury (H), Melton (H)
3 wins, 6 losses, 12 pts, 94.12 per cent
Fourteen points off the pace, the stars would have to align for Darley to sneak into a finals place.
After winning their first three games, six straight losses have hampered Di McCormack's side.
A loss to North Ballarat on the season's return would resign the Devils to the bottom half of the ladder.
Run home: North Ballarat (H), Redan (H), Melton (H), Bacchus Marsh (H), Sebastopol (A)
3 wins, 6 losses, 12 pts, 89.28 per cent
Like Darley, with who it shares 12 points, everything will need to go right for the Bloods to sneak in.
A bye will bring four points and matches against Bacchus Marsh and Darley shape as big opportunities. Melton has impressed, but its competitors have just built too big of a buffer.
Run home: Bacchus Marsh (A), Darley (H), Melton South (A), Sebastopol (A), Ballarat (A)
1 win, 8 losses, 8 pts, 60.92 per cent
While finals may be off the cards for the Cobras, they still have the chance to rise the ladder.
A return against Melton is an immediate chance to bridge the gap, but the following game against North Ballarat could be dangerous.
Like it's lower-half neighbours, Bacchus Marsh will no doubt be hoping to sign off on a high.
Run home: Melton (H), North Ballarat (H), Lake Wendouree (A), Darley (A), Sunbury (H)
0 wins, 9 losses, 4 pts, 49.67 per cent
It's hasn't quite been the season first-year coach Josh Burns would have wanted.
His young Lions are still hunting a first win and the potential fixtures ahead of it make it a hard task.
Still, each game is a chance for Sunbury to crash the party for others.
Run home: Lake Wendouree (H), East Point (H), Sebastopol (H), Ballarat (A), Bacchus Marsh (A)
