MILFORD Haven bounced back from defeat to Llanybydder to see off Cardigan at a rain-soaked Observatory Field on Saturday (Mar 2).
Strong wind also didn’t help but despite that the Mariners took the lead when David Round got the first try of the game. Dan McClelland then saw his conversion charged down.
Emyr Harries responded for Cardigan with a penalty but it did not halt Milford’s prorgess.
The home side increased their lead as Lee Riley touched down in the corner following a good move.
They soon had their third try as Dan Jenkins crossed the line and McClelland added the extras to make it 17-3.
With three tries in the bag Milford went in search of a fourth to earn a bonus point but they were kept out by some determined Cardigan defending.
The visitors themselves then had a late spell of pressure but they too were unable to add to the scoring as the Mariners also defended well.
The win sees the home side move eight points clear of second placed Neyland, and more importantly, thirteen ahead of Aberaeron who have two games in hand.
The Mariners now have a three-week break before their next game on Saturday, March 30, when they host Llangwm at the Obs.
Cardigan are next in action on Saturday, March 23, as they host Haverfordwest.
