At the bottom of the table, Crymych claimed only the third win of their campaign as they battled to a 19-3 home success over Carmarthen Athletic.
Nick Bevan, Carwyn Rees and Elgan Vittle all went over for the hosts, while Rhys Davies and Dyfan Dafydd added a conversion each.
In the day’s other fixture Whitland inflicted Ammanford’s 13th defeat of the season as they cantered to a 28-18 win at Parc Llwyntygwyn.
The Borderers’ Zac France-Miller was the star of the show for the hosts, as the back row was rewarded for an industrious afternoon’s work with a brace, while Lee Glanville and Mike Gorgio also went over for the home side. The victory sees Whitland move up to seventh in the table.
