Harrow-Balmoral were a force to be reckoned with when they came up against the Swifts in the district league's round 17 match on Saturday.
Cold, wet, windy and almost like snow, the nasty weather didn't let up the whole time the players were on the court.
The Baggies started off slow, but managed to claw themselves back into the first quarter to find themselves down by two at quarter time.
The Southern Roos took advantage of the sleeping Baggies at the start of the second quarter and extended the lead by four at half time.
Swifts coach Courtney Morrow said the slow starts to each quarter will be something she will have a think about and address at training.
"It's cold out there, bitterly cold but it doesn't excuse the slow starts," she said.
"I don't know if it was because of the cold or we weren't just switched on.
"It was probably a combination. It's what cost us the game - we matched them everywhere else on the court."
The Baggies struggled in the third quarter after the half time break.
"We need to adapt to any weather conditions - so the rain and the cold isn't an excuse," Morrow said.
"Looking at the game from a positive point of view, we improved from the start of the season.
"A seven goal loss isn't as bad as a 20 odd point loss. A loss is a loss though."
The last time the two teams met was back in round six where the Baggies went down 44-67.
Swifts will take on Rupanyup on the road next weekend for the last game of the home and away season.
