Swifts A Grade netballers have jumped a game ahead sitting in sixth position of the district league's ladder, after defeating Noradjuha-Quantong on Saturday.
An even game at quarter time, the Baggies got the jump on the visiting team and applied the pressure right across the court to go in with a seven-goal buffer at half-time.
The Bombers retaliated in the third, defeating the Baggies 12 goals to 9.
After a change of players and fresh legs on the court, Swifts came home strong in the fourth quarter.
Coach Courtney Morrow said the game was a tough hit out.
"We lost our momentum in the third and couldn't convert from turnover intercepts," she said.
"All credit to Noradjuha-Quantong as well - they pushed us today, as we knew they would.
"Last time we met it was a one-goal game.
"As the season gets closer towards the end it really cements the importance of everyone playing their role."
Morrow said without taking anything away from the win, there was still a lot of work to be done before the word final is mentioned.
"There is improvement across the board but we also can't be too complacent," she said.
"Everyone can work on individual things which will ensure what happened in the third quarter of this game, doesn't happen.
"It's important we have a really strong, back end of the season, which should put us in a great position.
"Some tough decisions will be made but we want to make sure we are there for finals and not be relying on other results."
Noradjuha-Quantong coach Yolanda Molineaux said there were aspects of the game which impressed her, despite walking away without the four points.
"Our first and third quarters were really solid," she said.
"I think we came out all guns blazing in the first and then dropped off.
"We tend to do that so I know it's something we need to work on to build the consistency for four quarters."
The Bombers sit just outside of the six - a position Molineaux said was a big focus for the last few games of the season.
"Our aim, like everyone, is to get to finals," she said.
"This season, like last, those middle ladder position teams are very close in competition.
"It's going to be a battle who ends up in finals and that's our aim. We all know finals are a different game and we are prepared to match it with the best."
