Cwmgors 19 South Gower 5
In-form Cwmgors produced another winning performance to reach the next round of the Swalec Bowl competition at a blustery Parc y Werin.
Conditions, including a tricky crossfield wind, made it difficult for both sides, ensuring the game descended into a scrappy affair at times.
Cwmgors rotated their squad somewhat, making some front row changes, but received an early blow when the influential Steff Rees went off to an early injury.
The Cherries went ahead after 15 minutes when a neat backline move was finished off by wing Andrew Davies in the corner.
Cwm continued to dominate and went further ahead five minutes later, when from a quickly-taken tap ball, scrum-half Lee Evans rounded to nip in for the try.
Forward Richard Gregg, later named man of the match with his superb ball carrying, stepped into the departed Rees’ boots to take over the kicking duties and convert.
Conditions deteriorated further later, heavy rain in the last half hour making handling almost impossible for both.
Dropped passes cost both sides, but Cwmgors bagged a third try when excellent centre Lloyd Watson made a lightning break to race in and score.
Gregg added another conversion, but battling Gower hit back late on to grab a consolation try, but the game was up by then.
Cwmgors take a break on Saturday with no league fixture, but the leaders return on Saturday, December 28, with a league visit to Cefn Cribbwr.
