In second place a couple of points behind the leaders are Loughor Rovers, who made ground advantage count in a 4-0 win against Evans & Williams.
After getting the better of the early exchanges, Loughor delivered the first blow on 25 minutes when Mike Grimwade found the net from a cross out wide by Matthew Hurford.
And it was from another pinpoint cross by Hurford that Ryan Howells capitalised to make it 2-0.
The second half continued in the same vein, with Loughor holding the edge, but it took until the 80th minute for them to breathe a little easier when Dan Hurford obliged from the spot for 3-0, before a superb solo goal from Louis Jackson wrapped up the points. He picked up the ball on the centre circle, glided through the defence and then rounded the keeper.
Callum Letheren and Andrew Gardner scored a couple of goals each for unbeaten Dafen in a 10-1 win at home to Wellfield Athletic. Others to score were Craig Frater, Wayne Williams, Nicky Morgan, Steven Devonald, Dean Jenkins and Steven Green.
Bwlch Rangers enjoyed a 7-0 win against Pengelli United. They went 2-0 up through Clayton Jenkins and Matthew Hughes in the first quarter of an hour. Jenkins and Hughes scored again, while also on target were Matthew Williams, Ian Evans and left-back Sam Chiffy with a spectacular strike that curled past the keeper.
Back to winning ways are Ponthenri, who beat bottom club Johnstown 4-0 at home.
Aled Williams slipped the ball under the keeper's body from a cross by Shaun Roberts to open the scoring, and a volley by Huw Rumble from a flick by Aled Williams then made it 2-0.
Williams was again in the thick of the action in the 50th minute, flicking the ball over the line from a Craig Chandler corner. And Williams went on to complete his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the 70th minute.
Ponthenri keeper Dean Hodgson saved a penalty late in the match.
Still setting a blistering pace at the top of division one are West End United, who made it six out of six when beating Pontlliw 5-2.
On target for West End were Sam Evans, Dyfrig Frater, Andrew Gilbert, Jonathan Thomas and Steven Preece.
Joseph Pullman capped an outstanding display with a couple of goals in each half for Burry Port, who beat Llangennech 8-0.
Port took the lead through the first of two goals by Wayne Phillips, and there was one each to celebrate for Jamie Dunleavey and Darren Pullman.
After failing to win any of their first six games in the league, Drefach looked to be heading for another loss when trailing 2-0 early on against Llandeilo Town.
But they were handed a break when the referee pointed to the spot late in the opening half. Up stepped Ashley Shaw to cut the deficit to 2-1.
Drefach got back on terms in the 65th minute when Shaw converted a cross by Johnny Lloyd. Five minutes later they were ahead for the first time thanks to a looping header by Darren Baker. Then Jason Thomas let rip from 30 yards to leave the keeper with no chance.
Third in the table are Kidwelly Town, who surrendered a 3-0 lead before going on to beat visiting Penllergaer 4-3.
Goals from Keri Williams, Luke Fitzgerald and Dwayne Cassell gave Kidwelly the best possible start, but when it came back to 3-3 it looked as if they might have to settle for a point.
But Kidwelly managed to regroup, helped by switching Chris Morris into midfield, and then came a late winner struck by Keri Williams.
In division three, Bancffosfelen defied the odds with a 3-2 win in the away clash against Carmarthen Wanderers.
All the Bancffosfelen goals were scored in the opening half, a superbly struck 25-yard free-kick by Gavin Griffiths giving the Gwendraeth Valley side the lead in the 10th minute.
Daniel Lewis made it 2-0 from the spot after the keeper chopped down Jamie Jones.
Then Lee Williams went on a run that saw him beat four defenders before drilling his effort wide of the keeper.
There were maximum points for Pembrey, for whom Owain Jones netted twice in the 5-2 win against Porth Tywyn.
Justin Salter and Josh Bunyan also scored for Pembrey.
In reserve division one, Seaside were beaten for the first time, 3-2 at Dafen. Matthew Davies, Wesley Smith and Peter Challis were the scorers for Dafen.
Seaside A won 4-3 at Bancffosfelen in reserve division three.
It was 2-2 at half-time, but Seaside finished the stronger and secured the points through Toby Osborne, Curtis Elliott, Chris Simkins and Jake Kearney.
Drefach were 4-0 behind at one point in the clash at Pembrey, but battled back to draw 4-4 in reserve division four.
The fightback was triggered by a couple of goals from Robert Seymour, while also on target were Roy Llewelyn and Carl Lawrence. A couple of goals each from Chris Evans and Jonathan Williams helped give Pembrey their commanding position.
