Cross Keys shut out Glamorgan Wanderers away from home as they claimed a 24-0 win in the WRU National Championship.
The win extends the Keys’ recent upturn in form, winning five of their last seven games.
The victory sees the Keys remain tenth in the league, but the Pandy Park outfit have drawn closer to the teams above them with games in hand over their rivals.
On the back of a win over Maesteg Quins, The Keys opened the scoring at the Memorial Ground in Ely through a 17th minute Loui O’Brien penalty.
The first try of the game was scored 14 minutes later when flanker Joe Thomas crossed the line to score.
