During the first half Cwmavon held the upper hand and were rewarded when Liam Singer coolly slotted home.
Maintaining the pressure, Danny Symmons capitalised and put Cwmavon two up with a shot from the edge of the box.
Dave Samuel had a great opportunity to make it three, but a wicked bobble led to him scuffing the shot wide.
Soon after Port Talbot got back in the game when a speculative shot almost from halfway dropped over Cwmavon's keeper.
Port Talbot started the second half in positive mood and began piling on the pressure with some good wide play. A great pass across the edge of the box and a good strike earned them the equaliser.
Port Talbot continued to use their pace on the right, with the winger tormenting the Cwmavon defence, cutting inside and scoring to make it 3-2.

Baglan Dragon and Porthcawl Athletic shared an entertaining 2-2 draw.
The first half was all Baglan, but poor finishing and a lack of quality where it mattered kept it goalless.
Baglan did make the breakthrough, however, when a long ball from Daniel Thomas set through Lee Jones who chipped the visiting keeper.
Baglan made it two when a cross from Matthew McGinley was finished well by Liam Edwards.
Immediately after the restart, Porthcawl played a long ball into the Baglan area. Baglan failed to clear their lines and Porthcawl pulled one back.
Encouraged, Porthcawl applied the pressure and grabbed a lucky equaliser after a sliding tackle by the Baglan centre-half saw the ball rebound off the Porthcawl striker to fly past the keeper.
Porthcawl had a chance to take all three points, but a 20-yard drive was well saved by Baglan keeper Connor Jones.
