Having lowered the colours of Lampeter Town and champions New Quay in their two previous outings Aberporth visited King George V Playing Field in buoyant mood but failed to complete a Division One win hat-trick as they went down 3-2 against improving Cardigan Town.
Three wins on the bounce moved the Magpies into fifth and with young players growing in stature game by game it could prove imprudent to rule out Town figuring on the roll of honour at the business end of the campaign.
The game was spoilt, especially during the second half, by a gale force wind and driving rain but both sides deserved praise for their endeavours to provide entertaining fare.
The homesters were three goals ahead after 28 minutes and although the Airmen hit back with two second half strikes the Magpies fully deserved maximum points.
Midfielder Ben Davies fired past John Banks after working a one-two with Kevin Morgan to open Town’s account, Cerys Jones put John Lumb through for the second goal and a 25-yard Chris Morgan thunderbolt made it 3-0.
James King and John Ridgley were on target for the visitors.
Bottom of the pile Aberaeron recently opened their account for the season but failed to follow up when beaten 1-0 at home by Bargod Rangers. Llew Jones was the Rangers marksman.
