A shooting masterclass from Swifts goal attack Michaela Armer was the driving force behind an upset Baggies win over Edenhope-Apsley on Saturday.
The Baggies made the long trek to Edenhope, with the Saints firm favourites before the match.
The favouritism shifted slightly after the first quarter, with the Baggies moving ahead by two-goals.
The momentum had completely swung to the Stawell-based team by the end of the second quarter, amassing 14 goals to just six to lead by 10 goals at half-time.
"It was going to be a tough start - we knew that. So I think because we were switched on that helped us break away early," Swifts A Grade coach Courtney Morrow said.
"There was lots of teamwork and encouragement out there."
The Saints tied the third quarter at 10-10 and won the final period 16-15, ultimately falling short 50-41.
"I think it surprised all of us that we won by that much," Morrow said.
"It was a good win in terms of what it means for our season and maybe finals."
Armer had a game she will never forget, scoring 40 goals from 45 attempts, a ridiculous 89 per cent conversion rate. "It was by far Michaela's best game or the season," Morrow said.
"It is very handy when you have someone in form like that. You try and get it to her as much as you can and make the most of it."
The victory will play a crucial role in Swifts' crack at a potential finals berth, now moving among three other teams with 16 points.
A better percentage than those teams could hold Swifts in good stead, with the bottom two spots of the top six to be hotly contested for.
