The Swifts grabbed their first win of the 2021 HDFNL senior season with a big win over Kaniva Leeor United, but a big test looms in round three.
After being outplayed in round one, the Swifts needed to responded against the HDFNL's newest team and they did with a six goal to none opening term.
Kaniva hit back in the second quarter to cut the margin to 19 points at half time, but the Swifts responded once again with seven unanswered goals in the third term.
Kaniva scored just two-points after half-time as the Swifts finished the match 16.9 105 to 4.8 32.
There was plenty of contributors for the Swifts on the day with Zac Armer and Scott Carey influential through the midfield while some of the clubs young guns in Joseph Martin and Ben Leong also were in the best.
There was also a big spread of goalkickers with Josh Davis and Ben Martin snagging three and 3, Seth Robert Blake, Joseph Martin, Brett Hargreaves and Scott Carey all adding two goals each.
Hamish Smith also kicked a goal in his first senior match for the club.
After the strong round two performance, the club will now face the top of the table Rupanyup.
Rupanyup have come into the 2021 season in red hot form with a 109 point win against Natimuk and thewy also handed Harrow Balmoral their first lose for a long time.
The Panthers pounced in round two as they put themselves firmly at the top of the HDFNL ladder with a 72 point win.
On the netball court the Swifts couldn't quite get the job done against Kaniva, but round three will be an other opportunity for the side to get on the winner's list as they take on the winless Panthers.
The Swifts were missing a couple of key players as they again went down by seven goals on Saturday, which followed their round one loss to Noradjuha Quantong.
In round two Rupanyup lost by 10 to Harrow Balmoral and went down by 14 to Natimuk in round one, meaning both sides will be desperate to get their first win of the season on the court.
