Swifts have moved won game clear in sixth-place on the Horsham District league ladder, after a pivotal win against Noradjuha-Quantong on Saturday.
After an even start, the Baggies got the jump on the visiting team in the second term to go in with a seven-goal lead at half-time.
The Bombers retaliated in the third, cutting the margin to four goals and setting up an intriguing last quarter in windy conditions.
Swifts 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."
But the Swifts showed their strength in the final term, finishing with fresher legs and taking a 51-41 win.
The victory was pivotal to the Baggies finals hopes and put them into a good position. Morrow however said there was still a lot of work to be done.
"There has been 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
"We want to make sure we are there for finals and not be relying on other results."
Noradjuha-Quantong coach Yolanda Molineaux said the Bombers showed some good signs but lacked consistency.
"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."
The Bombers now face an uphill battle to return into the top six. They face Jeparit-Rainbow, Natimuk United, Pimpinio and Taylors Lake on the run home.
"This season, like last, those teams in the middle of the ladder are very close," Molineaux said.
"It's going to be a battle to see who ends up in finals, and that's our aim."
In other contests, Natimuk United survived a scare from Jeparit-Rainbow, winning 35-41. The Ewes led by just three goals at three-quarter time, but were able to hold on in the final term.
Buoyed by their drought-breaking win last week, Taylors Lake almost caused another remarkable upset against Edenhope-Apsley. The Lakers trailed by just one goal at half time and four goals at three-quarter time, but eventually fell 54-45.
Kalkee and Laharum also had convincing wins against Rupanyup and Pimpinio respectively.
