The Swift's have squared up their 2021 season on the field and on the court with a pair of big wins in round four of the HDFNL.
The Swifts' scored a 120-point win with Todd Matthews turning back the clock up forward in the football.
Matthews has spent much of his senior career down back, but when Ben Martin went down with an injury a replacement was needed.
He booted nine goals, helping the Swifts nail their second win of the season.
Senior coach Brett Hargreaves was happy with result, but knows more improvement will be needed across the season.
"To be honest, it didn't feel like a big margin, when we're out there playing they put up a reasonably good fight," he said.
"It was also a little bit disappointed in the fact we probably only played two quarters of football for the day, which is something we have to work on your future, but nonetheless, it was good to get a big win."
Hargreaves also said he was "really pleased" with Swifts' start to the season.
"We've had a number of guys play their first game of football this year, probably over half the team and new faces to 2019," he said.
"They're all doing a really good job and I think that's a really good sign that the group itself is gelling together and I think we're heading in the right direction for sure.
"We need to learn how to play four quarters of football, playing two or three quarters is not gonna win you a game of footy.
"Getting that consistency across four quarters is going to be probably the key in making sure that we're consistent from week to week."
Swifts are sitting fifth on ladder after the first four rounds, with a league-wide bye scheduled for Saturday May 8.
After bye the Swifts will leave town to face Laharum, who have won just one game in the seniors to start 2021.
Meanwhile, the netballers will face a stern test after the bye with the reigning premiers Laharum looking as strong as ever.
But the Swifts will be brimming with confidence after back to back home wins.
The A Grade completed a 47-26 goal win over Pimpinio, pushing them up to sixth on the ladder, with coach Kristy Dodds happy with the direction the team is headed.
"It's been fabulous to get some wins on the board after being so close for the first two rounds," she said.
"The team have been working so hard and deserved to be rewarded with the win for their solid efforts.
"Our defensive pressure down the court has been impressive and our focus has been on keeping possession of our own centers and capitalizing on any turnovers.
"Last week we came out with a solid start and would probably agree as a team we didn't play the full four quarters of our best netball but overall happy to walk away with the win."
