Cwmgors travelled to Cefn Cribbwr in Division 3 West (Central) on a dank day, so dark and gloomy, the hosts put the floodlights on before kick-off!

It was also a breezy afternoon, and the home side kicked off into the breeze in the first half; both sides had difficulty with a slippery ball due to the adverse conditions, but it was the hosts who opened the scoring from a driving maul off a lineout.

The Cherries reacted to this early blow positively, and a brace of Jordan Smith penalties got them into the game, trailing just 7-6 on the half hour. Smith's long-range attempt then crept just wide, before Cefn grabbed an important score, a converted try on half time, to lead 14-6.

The match rather got away from the visitors after the break, the home side crossing for two further unanswered tries to march into a commanding 26-6 lead. 'Gors never gave up the ghost and were fully rewarded just before the end when some excellent forwards' play created the final try of the game as Owen Davies crashed over, Jordan Smith adding the conversion.

Also in Division 3 West (Central), bottom-side Cwmllynfell are still without a win after suffering a 50-0 loss at Neath Athletic.

Cwmgors will be at home this Saturday, when they welcome second-placed Cwmafan to Parc y Werin. They then take a break from league action on December 2, when they travel to Nantymoel in the Division 3 Cup.

Meanwhile, in Division 2 West, Amman United pack their buckets and spades on Saturday and travel to take on unbeaten Tenby, after the Amman's scheduled home fixture against Mumbles at the weekend fell to a waterlogged pitch at Cwmamman Park.

Final score: Cefn Criwbr 26 – 13 Cwmgors.
