The Far South Coast Football Association will enjoy a general bye for the school holidays this weekend.
But when play returns on July 21 there will be just three regular rounds left in the winter season and the clock is ticking on vital competition points.
The Bega Devils lead the first grade ladder, but they have far from secured the minor premiership yet with a minimal two-point buffer from the second placed Wolumla Tigers.
The run towards the finals was hindered further when the Wolumla outfit clinched a 3-2 result over the Devils at Wolumla on Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Tathra showed they're still up for the challenge with a great 3-0 win over the Merimbula Grasshoppers putting the United outfit just four competition points further astray of the Wolumla club.
Reserves and ladies are a bit more separated with Eden likely to lock down the reserve minor premiership with a six-point buffer from the second-placed Pambula.
And in ladies, the Killer Whales already have the minor premiership locked in with a nine-point spread from their nearest rivals in the Wolumla Tigresses.
The Tigresses have been in good touch recently to keep pace with Eden, but a draw against Pambula on Sunday provided just one competition point.
