Rain may have ruined most of the rugby programme on Saturday, but it was a day to remember at Llynfi Road, where Maesteg ran up their ninth successive victory - their best-ever run in 11 seasons of league rugby.
Maesteg's last defeat was at Beddau on November 3 and when they went to Narberth in September they lost 39-28, but this time they left the league leaders beaten for only the third time this season.
As with Maesteg, Narberth's last loss was also on November 3 and the Otters went confidently into a 1l-6 interval lead with fly half Simon Daniel scoring the only try to take his tally to 164 points this season.
Neath under-21 player Aled Davies and Maesteg fly half Matthew Pearce, himself a former Neath player, kicked a brace of penalties apiece.
In the second spell, Maesteg scrum half Richard Morgan, the cousin of Australian cricket star Stuart McGill, scored a try that Pearce converted and again Davies and Pearce traded penalties, but Davies missed a late shot that would have won it for arberth and Maesteg were winners by 16-14.
Pearce now tops the Division 2 scorers with 239 points that leaves him 43 ahead of scrum half Rhys Edwards of UWIC.
Only one other match took place in Divisions 2-4 when bottom club Tenby United went down at home to Birchgrove by 23-10 in Division 3 West. It was only Birchgrove's fourth win of the season and leaves them in tenth position of the 13 clubs in the division..
DIVISIONS 5-7. ROUNDUP
Porthcawl's South Road pitch was deemed in good enough condition to play by referee Gareth Saunders of Rhydyfelin and the 'Seaweeds' took full advantage to defeat Baglan 14-5 and move to third place in Division 7 Central.
A try after 20 minutes by centre Jason Bryant was converted by his partner Robert Price, but Baglan responded with a try by wing Marcus Puckett that saw fly half Liam Gadd's excellent conversion attempt strike a post.
Porthcawl finished it just on the interval as Bryant again burst over for Price to convert. Their rearranged match away to leaders Dowlais next Saturday is now a key one.
Second-placed Rhigos stored to a 56-3 win in 7 Central at Aberavon Green Stars with nine tries being scored - two by Simon Grindle. In 6 Central the only match saw Banwen beat Abercwmboi 34-12 with a 5-0 try-count led by two from centre Barry Evans as Mark Bennett placed four penalties in reply.
