Just four appearances back in the TCL elite and already Beaconsfield's swift ride now resembles a rollercoaster.
Each of the three times the Swans stepped out, they have climbed higher and higher.
Then came the big fall to reigning premiers Hadspen.
"There was nothing wrong with our approach to the game - it's just they batted really well with Thanuka [Dabare] at the top," Beaconsfield captain Sean Barry said.
"He took the game away from us early on. We had some plans and had a couple of chances. We just didn't quite grasp them early.
"We dropped a couple of catches and gave them too many runs in the field - that's an area we need to improve."
Longford awaits Beaconsfield in their second Premier League match on Saturday after the three TCL20 starts.
The home side has suffered a big blow after Jason Snare has been forced to miss.
Tigers captain Jackson Blair believes that will open up the game, expecting the Swans to take advantage of it.
"I think things probably didn't go their way. I think they'll be out to bounce back pretty hard this week to try and knock us over," he said.
Blair will reward Patrick Sytsma with his debut in the Premier League with A-Reserve captain Aiden Hume.
ACL are looking to get their winless season back on track at Trevallyn Park.
But captain John Kedey did not mince words on pinpointing his side's issues.
"We haven't had a great start to the T20 and now the Premier League campaign," he said. "With extras being our top score in our Premier League game and our third recent T20, it really says a lot about our application with our batting at the moment.
"We know we're not at full strength at the moment with a fair few players in and out."
MORE CRICKET: Hurricanes unveil new paceman
Luke and Matthew Oates will return, but ACL will be weakened for the loss of Kieran Davey and Deepak Singh.
Conditions have ensured Trevallyn have been on the end of a couple of draws.
But still Trevallyn captain James Whiteley feels he is putting a good side together.
"Our batting has been really good so far this year with our decisiveness and how even everything is," he said.
"Some teams are very top heavy, so we're happy that we have blokes contributing up and down the order. I feel it's just going to be a matter of putting a bowling performance together."
Charles Von Stieglitz's inclusion will boost the side further for the critical game.
Perth is hoping recent form against Hadspen continues.
The Demons had a shock win over the Chieftains and nearly pulled off a second.
"We'll take some confidence from last year winning one match and losing the other against them by a wicket," captain John Hayes said.
"In saying that, they have recruited really well in the offseason and they showed last week why they're the reigning premiers. So we'll have a lot of work to do."
Hadspen is aware of that near hoodoo to lowly Perth.
Chieftains captain Liam Reynolds has dismissed the win being a fait accompli.
"We are going to round 2, so I don't think you can be complacent," Reynolds said.
"There is always that internal pressure that we've got to perform."
