Richard Powell's late penalty secured a narrow 17-18 win for Bedwas against Carmarthen Quins as they stayed top of the table.
Bedwas have a poor historical record away to Quins but they are a different side this season as they ground out yet another win.
In a physical game, both sets of forwards hit the rucks hard as they looked to gain that all important break through but for the first quarter of the game, defences were on top.
Quins broke the deadlock on 26 minutes when swift hands put lock forward Hadyn Pugh in at the corner, James Dixon's conversion went wide.
Bedwas hit back within two minutes when Richard Powell slotted his first penalty of the evening before Dixon added a penalty of his own after Bedwas were adjudged offside.
The league leaders refused to lie down and got their reward with Powell slotting two further penalties before the interval to put Bedwas into a one point lead.
Within two minutes of the restart, Powell had extended Bedwas's lead with another penalty before once again both sides cancelled each other out.
Dixon's second penalty after 62 minutes narrowed Bedwas's advantage to one point before Kristian Gay was sin binned for a ruck offence. Crucially for Bedwas, Chris Banfield who had taken over kicking duties, was wide with his penalty attempt. He made amends a minute later to put his side 14-12 ahead.
Bedwas shrugged off the loss of a man and went one point ahead again with 11 minutes left via Powell's accurate kicking.
Both sides were still working hard but try scoring opportunities were few and far between. With four minutes left on the clock Banfield added a penalty goal somewhat controversially awarded for a high tackle to put the Quins 17-15 ahead.
Bedwas didn't throw in the towel and pressed hard for a score. The gained their reward when awarded a penalty in front of the sticks.
Powell coolly slotted the kick and the referee blew for full time to the joy of the Bedwas camp and despair of the home faithful.
