The Horsham District Football Netball League has decided to push ahead with round 12 at the weekend, after a board meeting on Tuesday night.
Under the recently eased restrictions in regional Victoria, community sport has been given the all-clear to go ahead, provided the number of people attending is "limited to minimum number of people required to participate in and facilitate the activity".
Because of this, there will be no spectators allowed to attend the round 12 games.
Round 12 was originally scheduled for August 7, but will instead be played on August 14, in place of round 13 which has now been abandoned.
At this stage, finals will begin on August 21.
The decision to play one more round before finals, opens up numerous possibilities for the final make-up of the top-six in both netball and football.
In the football, the finals equation for sixth-placed Natimuk United is simple - defeat Kaniva-Leeor and they finish sixth and take the remaining finals' position.
If they lose, however, the door is wide open for the seventh-placed Swifts to snatch a finals berth if they can beat the struggling Pimpinio.
Jeparit-Rainbow's clash with Harrow-Balmoral should decide who finishes third, but Kalkee is also a chance if they can boost their percentage with a big win against Laharum.
Noradjuha-Quantong has already sewn up the minor premiership.
Similarly in the netball, the Swifts and Natimuk are the only two teams in the running for sixth position.
Both teams are currently on the same points, but the Swifts have a slightly superior percentage of around two percent.
If the Swifts defeat Pimpinio, to make the finals the Rams need to win their match against Kaniva-Leeor by enough points to bridge the percentage gap.
Third-position will likely come down to the result of the Jeparit-Rainbow and Harrow Balmoral clash, with Kaniva-Leeor also a chance to sneak into third if they defeat Natimuk United.
Regardless of whether Laharum win or lose they should take home the minor premiership as they have approximately a 96 per cent higher percentage than Noradjuha-Quantong who sit second, one win behind the unbeaten Demons.
