Cardis suffer away defeat
A BATTLING performance just failed to pay off for Cardigan who went down 25-18 at Pontarddulais, meaning they continue to languish near the bottom of division three west.
Despite the setback, there were signs to suggest that more of the same in forthcoming crucial encounters could see Dylan Davies and Co escape the drop into the fourth division.
The visitors trailed 19-5 at the break and appeared to be heading for a heavy defeat. But they rallied and were only seven points adrift at the final whistle to earn a losing bonus point.
No. 8 Aled Thomas and fly-half Jonathan Lloyd got early tries for Bont, with the latter converting his own score.

Promotion aspirants Newcastle Emlyn went down 28-13 at Gorseinon, the win moving the Swansea team to within four points of their rivals. But Emlyn do have a game in hand.
