The Baggies managed to maintain their spot inside the Horsham District league's top six for another week after a solid win over Jeparit-Rainbow on Saturday.
Wet weather plagued the match which would make or break the Storm's season. The home team was just one win behind Swifts, needing a win to keep in touch with the top five.
They started well, with the higher-placed Baggies leading by just two goals at the first break.
The visitors were able to break clear in the second term, scoring 12 goals to just five, extending the lead nine which was virtually unassailable in the conditions.

A 12-6 third term from Swifts put them ahead by 15 goals heading into the final quarter, eventually going on to win the final term and the match 41-24.
"I was confident we could win but didn't know we could get away by so much," Swifts coach Courtney Morrow said.
"I think in the end we played a bit better to the conditions with short, sharp passes.
"Both our goalies were on fire too. Sometimes you have one on, one off but they both did really well in tough conditions."
It was the fewest goals Swifts had conceded in a match so far this season.
Jade Ralph scored 19 goals in tough conditions to put her name among Swifts' best while Erin Freeland was crucial in defence to limit the Storm's score.
The Baggies held onto fifth spot with the win, with percentage keeping them above Edenhope-Apsley and Noradjuha-Quantong who are all on the same points.
"We knew the win would be really important for our ladder position. I'm I very proud of the girls," Morrow said.
