swung the game


Could you tell me what the phrase "swung the game" means in this sentence?

United have secured a victory that looks more comfortable than the game was for them at half-time. Brighton played well in the first half and no doubt fancied their chances of getting something, until Ronaldo rifled home early in the second half. Dunk's red card swung the game decisively away from Brighton, and United spurned several chances to extend their lead before Fernandes finally put a gloss on the result.
