Socttish centre Andy Henderson raced clear from the 22 to nothc the first try and then wing Rory kerr grabbed another on the stroke of half-time.
By then, Ponty had kept themselves in the hunt with three penalties from Fijian outside half Nicky Little, but it took a gem of a try from centre Jason Lewis five minutes after the break to give them a chance of victory.
Little added the conversion and them slotted a 30 metre penalty on the hour to give Ponty the lead for the first time.

Then, in the dying minutes, replacement outside half Ceri Sweeney kicked the home side's sixth penalty to secure the points.
SCORERS: Pontypridd: Try: J Lewis; Con: N Little; Pens: N Little 5, C Sweeney.
