Cross Keys were on the wrong end of a 52-15 drubbing away to Aberavon on Saturday, April 6.
The Keys conceded seven tries and are now 15 points adrift from Principality Premiership safety with five games left.
The Keys opened the scoring at Talbot Athletic Ground, Port Talbot, through No8 Garin Price in the 11th minute.
Jacob Botica scored from the kicking tee to add the two extra points.
However, Aberavon fullback Chris Banfield scored just two minutes later, with James Garland converting to draw the sides level.
Cross Keys regained the lead n the 18th minute when Botica scored from a penalty kick.
But the lead changed hands again in the 31st minute after Aberavon scrum-half Iwan Temblett crossed over the line for a try.
Garland added the conversion and the hosts were now 14-10 up.
On the cusp of half-time, referee Simon Rees awarded Aberavon a penalty try, leaving the Keys trailing by 11 points at the break.
The second half resumed and Aberavon were soon back on the scoreboard.
Flanker Joe Tomalin-Reeves scored the hosts’ fourth try to guarantee a bonus point in the 43rd minute.
Garland converted again as his side took a commanding 33-10 lead.
Almost immediately after the game restarted, winger Stef Andrews scored to increase the lead to 28 points – the equivalent of four converted tries.
Things got even worse for the relegation-threatened visitors when second-row Tom Lampard was shown a yellow card and sent to the sidelines for ten minutes.
Aberavon took advantage of the sending off and punished the Keys with a try just a minute later.
Jac Morgan scored try number six and Garland’s conversion meant the Keys were now 45-10 down.
A ruthless Aberavon side then broke the half-century mark in the 64th minute with a try from substitute Will Price.
Garland added his fifth conversion of the afternoon to extend the lead to 52-10.
But with less than ten minutes left, try-scorer Price was shown a yellow card, reducing Aberavon to 14 men.
It was little consolation for the Keys, who got a try back through substitute Daniel Babos.
Aberavon replacement Shaun Pearce was then shown a yellow card to reduce the hosts to 13 men but it came too late for Cross Keys to capitalise.
The Keys will be hoping to put this game behind them when they face high-flying Llandovery away from home on Saturday, April 13.
