Especially in sports writing, it's common to read rather unusual language. As you note, "to swat" means to strike quickly, hit suddenly, etc. You swat a fly. The baseball player swats the ball (with a bat). The teacher swats the student with a paddle. (I don't know if this is still legal in the USA, but it certainly was when I was a student in Arizona.)
Even the police use the word to mean "tactical team". SWAT = Special Weapons And Tactics.
Your translation looks fine to me.
